D136:  The dragon on the flag of Wales is proof of recently living dragons


Edited by Greg Neyman


Argument:  One of the oldest British books, The Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, contains the stories of people encountering dragons, and the flag for the country of Wales has a dragon on it.  This is proof that dragons existed recently (and, since dragons were dinosaurs, proof that dinosaurs existed recently)

  1. There is no evidence to suggest that dragons were real

  2. It is not good science to base scientific conclusions upon the writings of medieval England

  3. The Welsh liking of dragons came from the Roman occupation, and was not based on any indigenous life forms in Wales

  4. The only conclusion one can reach is that the Welch people liked their dragon tales enough to put it on their flag.  The same is true of other nations with dragons on their flags (Kingdom of Bhután)

  5. The Isle of Man (a British Isle) has a figure with three legs.  Are we to assume that the island is full of three-legged humans?

  6. Heraldic symbolism cannot be interpreted as based on fact

  7. The flag for Sri Lanka has a lion holding a sword.  Is this because lions in Sri Lanka are armed with swords?
