This first quote describes me, a sauropod dinosaur.
Can you think of any other animal that has a tail like a cedar tree?

stripped and naked: I will make a wailing like the dragons, and mourning as the
Yes, God's Word talks about us. We were created on the
same day as mankind, and we survived until relatively recently. So don't write
off dragons as fairy tales. They were us... dinosaurs... a part of God's creation.
