Dragons Fossils Historical Young Earth


Over the century’s historians and military journals have chronicled specific encounters and details regarding terrible lizards which at the time they called dragons. Such accounts included specific details as to their size, strength, color, scales, horns, and spikes. They remarked how hard it was to penetrate the interwoven scales with even the strongest spears. Today, remarkable fossils have provided stunning preservation that confirms these ancient reports as either incredibly lucky guesses (if pure myth) or perhaps more likely as very accurate indeed.

Supposed as 110 million years ago, this armored plant-eater lumbered through what is now western Canada, until flooded into the open sea and rapid burial preserved its armor in exquisite detail.

Optical photographs illustrate amazingly preserved skin detail of dinosaur tissue. The detail of ancient accounts of dragons render specific details regarding scales, textures, spikes, color, and other armor specifics these “terrible lizards” possessed.

It raises a question: how did these ancient societies know such details about dinosaurs many hundreds of years before paleontology was even invented? Could it be that these details were so well known (accounts found on every continent on earth) because mankind walked with such dragons (dinosaurs) and pterodactyls?

Mesopotamian “Humbaba” was a dragon pictured as a large, scale plate covered monster. The dragon had powerful legs and talons of a vulture. His head had horns (like a bull) and his tail was long and spiked like a serpent. (Drawing by Fafnirx.) The similarity to dinosaurs is perhaps exaggerated but the similarities are unmistakable.

Marco Polo wrote on huge serpents, he described as having “two short legs” with “three claws on each leg”. He noted they “dwelled in caves during the day to avoid the heat”. The serpents had “jaws wide enough to swallow a man, teeth large and sharp, and their whole appearance is so formidable that neither man, nor any kind of animal can approach them without terror.”

Pterodactyl flying reptile

Herodotus wrote: “There is a place in Arabia, situated very near the city of Buto, to which I went, on hearing of some winged serpents; and when I arrived there, I saw bones and spines of serpents, in such quantities as it would be impossible to describe. The form of the serpent is like that of the water-snake; but he has wings without feathers, and as like as possible to the wings of a bat.

Herodotus, Historiae, tr. Henry Clay, 1850, pp. 75-76.

Marine Sea Serpent recorded as either black or red in color

During the Medieval period, the Scandinavians described swimming dragons. The Vikings placed dragons on the front of their ships to scare off such “sea monsters”. The oldest reliable sea serpent record we have was written by Olaus Magnus in his book Historia de Gentibus. The story describes a Catholic priest who was exiled from his Swedish homeland and saw a sea monster “of an astonishing size” (about 75 ft long). This sea monster was sighted in 1522 near an island named Moo. Magnus’s credibility is attested by his most famous work, the 1539 book Carta Marina, which presented the most accurate map of Scandinavia or any other European region in existence at the time.

Mummified dinosaur reveals organs and skin detail.
Many of the nodosaur’s terracotta-hued armor plates have retained sheaths that were once made of keratin, the same material that’s in human fingernails.
Armored dinosaurs’ trademark plates usually fell off early in decay, a fate that didn’t befall this nodosaur. The remarkably preserved armor will deepen scientists’ understanding of what nodosaurs looked like and how they moved.
The nodosaur’s extraordinary preservation captured its armor plating in 3-D, only slightly squished in comparison to its shape in life.
