FLYING WINGED (REPTILES) SERPENTS.............account recorded by Greek historian Herodotus ?
The Greek historian Herodotus 484 b.c.-425 b.c. Who is known as the "
Father of History " in western culture wrote and recorded , after
investigation , accounts told to him of flying winged reptiles . These
flying winged serpents wings are not described as having feathers but
resemble the wings of the bat. He also witnessed for himself the death
debris of these creatures , heapes of bones and spines piled high .
Could it be that these flying winged reptiles are indeed pterosaurus or
some other form of flying reptile species that supposedly died out
approximately 65 million years ago ?
HERODOTUS account :
the serpent its form is like that of the watersnake; and it has wings
not feathered but most nearly resembling the wings of the bat. Let so
much suffice as has been said now concerning sacred animals."
... ... ----------
"There is a region moreover in Arabia, situated nearly over against the
city of Buto, to which place I came to inquire about the winged
serpents: and when I came thither I saw bones of serpents and spines in
quantity so great that it is impossible to make report of the number,
and there were heaps of spines, some heaps large and others less large
and others smaller still than these, and these heaps were many in
"The region in which the spines are scattered upon the
ground is of the nature of an entrance from a narrow mountain pass to a
great plain, which plain adjoins the plain of Egypt;
story goes that at the beginning of spring winged serpents from Arabia
fly towards Egypt, and the birds called ibises meet them at the entrance
of this country and do not suffer the serpents to go by but kill them.
On account of this deed it is (say the Arabians) that the ibis has come
to be greatly honored by the Egyptians, and the Egyptians also agree
that it is for this reason that they honor these birds."
"As for the serpent its form is like that of the watersnake; and it has
wings not feathered but most nearly resembling the wings of the bat.
Let so much suffice as has been said now concerning sacred animals."
The History of Herodotus, Part II, #75 & 76.
COULD IT BE THAT DINO'S AND MAN ACTUALLY LIVED ALONGSIDE ONE ANOTHER , and very recently ?
Did these artists witness these animals for themselves ?
JUST WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF MAN AND DINOSAUR CO-EXISTED ?
Louis Jacobs , former president of the society of Vertebrate Paleontology ......
"Such an association (man and dinosaur) would dispel an Earth with vast
antiquity . The entire history of creation , including the day of rest ,
could be accommodated in the seven biblical days of the ......Genesis
myth . EVOLUTION WOULD BE VANQUISHED ."
Mr Jacobs does not hold
to the biblical worldview , this is obvious by his calling the Genesis
account myth , but he clearly understands that if man and dinosaurs
co-existed then it is the final nail in the coffin for the Evolutionary
From the evidence that is available , which spans every
tribe and nation globally , it is obvious that man and dinosaurs
co-existed . The very book (Bible , Word of God ) he attempts to claim
as myth contains eyewitness accounts of what are clearly known by us
today as DINOSAURS .
A great book for anybody searching out evidence
for the co existence of man and what we call today dinosuars then the
following book by Bill Cooper is a great read . http://www.amazon.co.uk/After-flood-Post
