Seems to me, that just about every culture around this big blue marble has these things.And i feel that some, not all mind you, only some might be based in fact. For instance the Dragon. While countries from around the world have their own version of the Dragon, the similarities are so close together, and these peoples have never met,that it adds credance to the fact, that their just might have been Dragons amoungst us..thanks.
