Feasibility: this section is slightly tongue-in-cheek! But I am serious that, in the huge variety of creation, such a system is possible or even likely. After all, if no-one had seen it, is it likely that such a story would be invented? Oelphick 01:45, 26 September 2006 (EDT)

Alexander The Great

Is an example of a situation where I wish Creation Wiki would quote an Ancient source directly, not a Creationist talking about it. It reminds me of the alleged Alexander UFO sightings, which after I looked into them wound up to be completely bunk.--MithirandirOlorin 13:51, 26 May 2011 (PDT)

Be specific, what parts of what articles are you referring to? And what referenceS?--Tony 13:40, 24 May 2011 (PDT)
I haven't read them yet, I'm referring to the sources cited for the Alexander section, I wish they'd just cite the ancient sources directly rather then use modern ones.--MithirandirOlorin 13:51, 26 May 2011 (PDT)
Oh I gotcha... Ya... Well if you have references for these ancient sources put their links on the page... I know I would like to read them :).--Tony 21:33, 24 May 2011 (PDT)
I'm trying to find them, one of the sources listed here lists as his main source Onesicritus who unfortunately isn't considered very credible and we don't have his writings directly anyway.--MithirandirOlorin 13:51, 26 May 2011 (PDT)
Our information on Alexander comes mainly from 4 sources. Diodorus, Arrian, Curtius and Plutarch. I want to know which one of those I should look for this reference in. If Onesicritus did relate such a story, we'd know it from one of those authors. --MithirandirOlorin 14:34, 18 March 2014 (EDT)
If the source is the work known as Pseudo Calisthenics, that is a fictional source not historical. --MithrandirOlorin 16:12, 16 November 2014 (EST)

Eric Lyons article

It seems like this article should be referenced and/or footnoted here. In particular in the Fire breathing and/or Bible dragons section "No Dinosaur…Ever Breathed Fire" by Eric Lyons, M.Min.

The information on the bombardier beetle is interesting, although it's already mentioned in this article and discussed in more detail in Fire breathing dragon. However, the discussion on the behemoth would be suitable for the Behemoth article. Clarinetguy097 19:04, 24 September 2017 (EDT)
Agreed. Its disturbing how quickly people are to just dismiss historical content in the Bible because we've not seen it happen. --Ashcraft - (reply) 12:33, 26 September 2017 (EDT)
