VIDEO: Creationist claims that dragon myths are derived from human encounters with dinosaurs

This week we wrote about Megan Fox, a creationist homeschooler mom who apparently thinks that dinosaurs were actually dragons. Needless to say, we were a little baffled about where she was drawing her conclusions from, but the video below might be able to add a little context. It seems her conclusions were (surprise) biblically based.

According to a creationist author, dragons were once real creatures simply because they appear in the Bible.

“The Bible speaks about dragons,” Darek Isaacs said on the program Creation Today in August of last year.

“Our authority — everything we do we have to measure by the word of God, that’s what I believe. So, we have to go to the Bible, and the Bible speaks about dragons.”

According to Isaacs’ book, Dragons or Dinosaurs, ancient myths about dragons were actually derived from people’s encounters with dinosaurs. Isaacs, like most young-earth creationists, believes that humans and dinosaurs co-existed since they were both created at the same time as the earth — about 6,000 years ago.

“If dragons were in fact entirely mythological, if they were a figment of the imagination, and if they never did exist, then God just compared [Satan] to a make-believe creature that never existed,” he concluded.
