Really though, I doubt dragons breathed fire - though they obviously existed at some point since both chinese and mayan, and even european cultures refer to them.
Well, bear in mind that the word "dinosaur" is a fairly modern invention. It's possible that the 'dragons' old old were merely the last feeble remnants of the dinosaurs. You never know. We think we've got the planet measured down to the last millimetre, but there's still so much left to see and learn.

"Some bacteria today seem to cause problems. And same thing with viruses, they cause problems. But it may only be to the weaker individuals. When somebody gets a cold, if a virus is really causing this, why doesn't everybody get the cold?"
[in response to the question 'how come that stars continue to burn if they have no oxygen?]
"I'm sorry but I don't know that I have a positive answer. [....] As far as the oxygen required, I'll have to pass on that one too and do some more study on that one. I don't know that I could prove one way or the other. I think there are different types of burning though - some do not require oxygen. Sorry about that, Andres. I'll have to do some research and check back with you on that one."
"We see a red shift from quite a few of the stars. That is interpreted to be the star is moving away. It may be true, I don't know. It could be the star is moving sideways. I don't think you can tell the angle of the stars movement - or even if the star is moving from the red shift. "
"The ancient horse is a Hyracotherium, which was originally called the hyrax, is still alive today in Turkey and in East Africa."
site (especially seminar number 3) he cites many examples of dragons in modern times.
These videos certainly changed my beliefs. He is, however, a strong christian activist, but just try to ignore that and listen to the several valid points he makes.
