Read the memories carefully and then answer the question. Nights and Dragons-
From the memoirs of the author Abigail Prynne
I sit in my office and hear the thunder rumbling outside my window. Flashes of light broke through the darkness and the wind rushed past my window. The exciting combination of sight and sound conjures up visions of dragons roaring proudly, breathing fire and soaring through the midnight sky. Dragons first fascinated me when I was a child. They've been following me ever since. The wonderful creatures appeared in the storybooks I read in the library, in the paintings I saw in museums, in the movies I saw in the theater and in the dreams I saw in my sleep. When I was thirteen years old, a question consumed me. I wanted to know if dragons ever existed, so I set out to find facts.
When I started my research, I discovered many skeptics. Scientists presented evidence to show why dragons could not and did not exist. They explained that it would be impossible for dragons to fly because they would be too big. They laughed at the idea of fire-breathing dragons. They noted that no other animal has done this. They said that if dragons lived, someone would have found relics somewhere in the world. Well, there were many logical explanations. It would be easy for me to accept that the only place dragons existed was in the imaginations of those who believed.
I could have given up, but I thought of my grandmother. He always told me that "people who think science is the answer to everything are missing everything else." With his words in mind, I searched some more. There were many events that hinted that dragons might not be imaginary. I noticed that cultures around the world described dragons in similar ways. This was strange because they had no way of communicating with each other. I found dragons mentioned in more than just stories. They appeared in ancient legal documents, the travel diaries of Marco Polo, and the Bible. I saw that the Chinese calendar uses a different animal each year. Dragons are included along with eleven real animals. I began to think it was a real possibility that all these people were talking about a creature that actually existed.
With renewed hope that there was some truth to the legends, I sought further investigation. I found that some experts disagreed with the popular arguments against dragons. They suggested that a dragon might have four stomachs like a cow. If it generated stomach gas like birds, it could generate enough to get off the ground. This would give him the ability to fly. If it expelled air as it sank toward earth, it could release gases that could ignite into flames. When the animal died, the stomachs released strong acids that decomposed its carcass over time. Biologists supported these ideas with sketches and models based on known animals. Not everyone agreed with these ideas, but many of the things we accept about dinosaurs and other extinct species began the same way.
I doubt we'll ever know if there were dragons. There can always be two sides to a heated debate. Some will say that the stories come from an active imagination. Some will believe with all their hearts that legendary creatures roamed our ancient world. I'm not sure which side to believe, but the sound and fury of such a night makes me smile. It reignites my childhood dreams and keeps the exciting possibility alive.
