For thousands of years stories about strange, exotic creatures have been the subject of many conversations around campfires, dinner tables and work sites.

Among many others, this would include the Amphisbaena, a snake with two heads, one at each end of the body, and the Stymphalian Birds, which were man-eating birds with beaks of bronze and sharp metallic feathers they could launch at their victims. Of course that is not to mention the Lockness monster, a cryptid, reputedly a large unknown lake monster that inhabits Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands, Big Foot, an ape- or hominid-like creature that some people believe inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America, fire breathing dragons and the Leviathan, a sea monster spoken of in Job 41. These and many other legendary monsters have excited wonder and fear in the hearts of people.

Could it be that they were real . . . with the facts stretched to suit the intent of the story teller? On the other hand superstitions, fables and legends too numerous to tabulate are so ludicrous that educated people do not wish to dignify them with serious consideration. But which do you believe? While do you discount?

It is always interesting when a viable discovery displays evidence that proves one of these subjects of interest actually existed. Our current lesson pulls information from a news account regarding one of these discoveries and will consider the problem of superstitions in the light of Biblical truth.
