About me being one-up, with the fact that an early form of humans(no matter the form), was around at the time of the dinosaurs. Back to the original idea, I still can't see as how you can imagine that dragons are real, unless they are underwater in the Marianna Trench or similar areas of not totally explored areas on earth.

I really don't think rodents by any stretch of the imagination can count as a form of humans. No matter what the genetic similarities, they simply don't have any of the traits that distinguishes our species.

Double entendre there. Also, have you seen Bad Boys II by any chance, there is something in there which is very similar to traits of our species, although I'm definitely not confirming it as true.  Smiley

I'll let someone explain it for you then, I'm not very good at explaining the details, as I haven't watched it for a while and can't remember how the scene goes. If they don't know what I'm talking about I'll be happy to tell you the event.

I never said they were close mirrors of modern humans... just that it wasn't incorrect saying we are 99% the same genetically. And really if you think about it there are rather a lot of similarities  Tongue , but yeah, I highly doubt mice are where the original source for visual concept of dragons was first stored...very very tiny minds... though some humans are no better...

Come on, there are more to us than just the genetic makeup !! It could be true, maybe we are identical genetically to rodents ( up to 99% ) but genetics are not really everything, eh ? If it were, there would only be one type of man..rite ?

JiNbOtAk, you're preaching to the choir... I'm not arguing with you... just saying that we do have many similarities with other mammals. And as for different kinds of man... evolutionary adaptation just as you see in any other species of mammals and life. Thus the different colors of butterflies, etc to match with their surroundings yet they are still butterflies.
But of course not everything is all about genetics! Personalities are something, I personally, am endlessly fascinated with... how your perception developes based on experiences and so forth. Life is a fascinating topic... *plunges off into thought*

A dragon is a legendary creature, typically with serpentine or reptilian traits, that features in the myths of many cultures

Some substances spontaneously combust when exposed to high temperatures in the presence of oxygen (say over 270 Kelvin and about 20kPa partial pressure)
 
If a dragon stored such chemicals away from air, and then exposed them to suitable conditions for ignition, say by spitting them out (or exhaling them as an aerosol) then it would be "breathing fire" without having anything burning within...

Perhaps a better option would be for a dragon to store two (or more) chemicals that combust only when mixed.
That's basically what certain beetles do.

No, dragons didn't exist... They all had the same idea because kings created monster to afraid their population.

I have seen the dragons in the movies only. I am not sure about it. They are like Dinosaurs.  
Can we relate Dragons with Dinosaurs?
