Well said, and agreed.
Not sure which of you I'm supposed to agree with overall, but I can entirely get behind what you've said here - I think there's a lot we don't know,
haven't witness or pinned down with widely-known evidences, or otherwise opened ourselves up to acknowledging.
Additional, as to dragons, I find it telling that a lot of the accounts of dragons throughout history describe some well-known dinosaurs quite
sufficiently, and to this day we still have the occasional report of dinosaur-like creatures in diverse areas (Pennsylvania, the Congo, and many many
others) with the indigenous readily IDing, consistently and across various languages/cultures, the same dinos when presented drawings/dino art.
Worldwide floods? I'll consider that one very much up in the air as well, seeing as how floods have shown the ability to lay down stratification and
sorting quite nicely, fossils can form quickly (and as a rule depend on flood-like or other such conditions, being quickly secreted away from
atmosphere), and large geological formations can be formed in what is essentially a heartbeat as compared to gradually. The common view is that
there's no evidence, but especially coupled with the global-consciousness 600+ flood myths, I think the evidence is all around...
And abaverage mentioned talking snakes, but if you dig into the language - as well as some other global consciousness mythos - Genesis doesn't really
refer so much to a snake as it does a trickster, enchanter, the bright and shining, and whatever other descriptors you choose to employ.
Love the weird!
