Why don't dragons exist and please give good reasons why?
I think that the only "proof" that we have that they don't exist
is that we don't have any evidence of them... no fossils, no living
examples. That's the best reason that I can give.
Other things seem implausible. Some dragons are said to breathe
fire. If that were literally true, wouldn't they burn themselves,
especially the inside of their mouths? But I have read interesting
Science Fiction explanations of how a creature like that could
exist, so... who knows.
I have also met people who believe that they do exist, and I'm
sure that there are other people out there. I don't believe that
they exist, at least the way they are portrayed in many stories...
gigantic, intelligent beasts who breathe fire, or other things like
ice, acid, etc., who terrorize the countryside, but who are also
literate and wise. I'm also not sure where so much literature came
from... is it all based on some original fabrication that caught
the imagination of multitudes of people from many different
countries, or was there something that actually existed that people
base the dragon myth on? Are there giant sea serpents? We have no
evidence, but is lack of evidence always proof that something does
On the other hand, the Komodo dragon exists as an actual
creature... so what is your definition of dragon? If it is just big
lizard, they do exist.
Who said they didn't exist? There has been thousands of species of
animals we didn't know about for so long and who can't say that
dragons haven't been discovered yet? Some people may have
discovered them, like Dr. Ernest Drake (a dragonologist), they may
have found them and told someone but they didn't believe them
because the fact that there are huge flying lizards around is hard
