If this were true, “dragon” fossils would have needed to be found throughout the entire world, because dragon legends are also globally found in every culture. Interestingly enough, in those same legends, dragons are described and discussed in the same way as common, everyday animals. (Dragons 9) Another Evolutionist David Jones, simply states, dragons cannot be dinosaurs. Although there are many similarities, he discounted the idea of dragons being dinosaurs because of his Evolutionary viewpoint. Evolution states, dinosaurs were dead thousands of years before humans evolved, so the idea that humans made legends about them is simply ludicrous.
He became the supreme god of Mesopotamian religion and culture by fighting an army of demons led by the goddess Tiamat, and killed her. This made people is Assyria to worship Marduk and he then became the god of the city Babylon, where the Ishtar gate is!

in the Macedonian city of Pella. His parents were King Philip II and Philip’s third wife Myrtale – commonly known as Olympias. A number of legends surrounded the birth of Alexander. One such account was that of a Persian Magi, who interpreted his birth and the near-simultaneous destruction of the temple of Artemis at the hands of Philip, as a portend for the destruction of Asia. Another story claims that Olympias was seen coupling with a serpent who was said to be an incarnation of the god Zeus-Ammon.
The Palace is the setting for a myth where the queen gave birth to a being that was half man, half bull, the Minotaurs, which was kept in the labyrinth of the palace; He was eventually slayed by the Athenian Thesus. The Palace of Knossos was destroyed in the later classical era and remained rubble until an archaeologist named Arthur Evans uncovered it in 1900. Since discovering the site Evans has substantially restored the palace back to its former glory. In an ancient tablet found in the palace it describes an earthquake destroying the palace. Where it had to be rebuilt there were heated arguments between the architects because one side wanted it to be more stable and last longer while the other side wanted it to be more decorative and nicer to live in.
It was first founded as a Greek colony, and all new Greek colonies at that time needed new temples and sanctuaries of gods and heroes built so the inhabitants of the city could worship their numerous gods.? Tradition says that Pytho (Delphi) was originally the sacred ground of the goddess Ge, and a dragon named Python protected it.? Apollo, the god of light, poetry, music and prophecy, slayed Python by shooting numerous arrows into him.? The city was said to be founded and built because Apollo wished it after his accomplishment, but that could just have been a way for Delphi, which does not have a concrete past, to have a perfect picturesque conception. Delphi did not become the center of the Greek world until after it joined the Amphictyonic League in the 7th century BCE.?
Even today the idea of what is a dragon can differ from each individual. While most people in the modern day believe that all dragons are fire breathing terrors, it is a misconception of the idealism behind dragons. Dragons have taken many forms from fire-breathing monsters, to the divine spiritual bringer of wisdom and rain. While dragons are cemented into today’s pop culture, where did the idea of dragons actually originate? While the English name of dragons originated from the Latin word dracon, which stood for serpent (All About Creation 2).
Although several passages refer to the beast called leviathan (many of which use it as an epithet for a pagan nation), only two seem to describe the battle between God and the monster. In Psalm 74.12-14, God is said to have "divided the sea", " the heads of the sea monsters on the waters", and "crushed the heads of leviathan". These all refer to leviathan's defeat in the past. But in Isaiah 27.1, it is said that in the future God would "punish leviathan the fleeing serpent, leviathan the twisting serpent" and that he would "slay the dragon that is in the sea". Rahab.
Instead of being a religious matter, internal diseases were considered a religious matter (Sigerest 23). Many notions about ancient Greek medicine were solely guessed on hints given in some stories like Homer’s epics, the Odyssey and the Iliad. Around the time of Homer in the eighth century B.C., gods were believed to not only cast ailment, but to also heal it (Sigerest 19, 22). In the Iliad, there was a physician and god by the name of Asclepius who was son of Apollo. He is often shown with a snake and staff (Porter 52).
Other significant Gods included Chac, a hooked-nose god of rain and lightning, and Kukulcán, the Feathered Serpent, who resembles the man who established the city, K’uk’ulkan. These Gods appear on many temples and were later adopted by the Toltecs and Aztecs as Quetzalcoatl. The Kukulcan, also known as El Castillo, is considered the most famous monument in the city; a unique feature of the pyramid is that it represents today’s modern calendar. A 16th-century Spanish bishop, Diego de Landa, named this pyramid after the legendary ruler of the city and the ancient snake deity. The accuracy of Mayan astronomy influenced the number of steps the temple has.
