If one has to think about Dragons, then probably an animated visual comes along or an animated film. For many the question arises… Are Dragons Real? Is there a truth to this myth that there were flying creatures similar to the ones looking like dragons?
Tracing back to history, it was believed that there were huge flying serpents who the Greeks and Sumerians talked about. In the earlier versions of the story, it was believed that these creatures were exotic. Sometimes they were perceived as helpful but other time provocative and harmful. So, how true would it be to say, “Dragons are Real”?
Are Dragons Real? Myth Decoded!
The story of these dragons progressing from the Greek culture towards the Christian era found relevance within the pages of the Bible. Pretty sure, at that time, professing Christians would have never asked, “Are Dragons Real”? For them it was an antitype of Satan.
In Christian religious text, the book of Job, a dragon looking-creature is termed as Leviathan. Live Science reports about the Book of Job describing the creature in detail.
It reads, “I will not fail to speak of Leviathan’s limbs, its strength and its graceful form. Who can strip off its outer coat? Who can penetrate its double coat of armor? Dares open the doors of its mouth, ringed about with fearsome teeth?”

The same text continues to speak of dragons spew fire- one of the characteristics that is most seen in films. Another feature seen in movies is smoke coming from the flaring nostrils of the creature.
The Book of Job further explains: “Its snorting throws out flashes of light; its eyes are like the rays of dawn. Flames stream from its mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. Smoke pours from its nostrils as from a boiling pot over burning reeds. Its breath sets coals ablaze, and flames dart from its mouth.”
There are so many TV series and films that use the dragons as characters. Take for example, the hugely popular TV show Game of Thrones, or the movie, How To Train your Dragon. Will all these clues out there, what are the chances of Dragons being real. What do you think- Are Dragons Real?
