    Has anyone here read the wonderful book AFTER THE FLOOD, written by Bill Cooper from England?

    Bill Cooper has traced the post-flood history of Europe back to Noah.

    Aside from the wonderful geneology tables presented, he also dedicates a couple of chapters to dinosaurs and how they shaped modern folklore.

    Cooper dissects the Beowulf and Grendel poem and basically makes a compelling argument, translating the Nordic words used that Grendel was in fact a young dinosaur of some kind and not a troll, and that Beowulf was a real person, not a mythilogical character.

    If you look at the detail of the poem, Grendel preyed on helpless villages surrounding his lair with stealth like terror. No one could kill him, until Beowulf figured out that if he rushed Grendel, keeping clear of his terrible jaws (that ate men up in goblets to quote the poem), he could use his sword to cut the belly of the terrible Grendel. But he actually was able to twist off one of Grendels "puny forearms" (as said in the poem) and Grendel simply ran back to his lair and bled to death.

    I find this extremely facinating. The book also list other records of dinosaur like beast and flying reptiles that kept early Europeans living in fear and terror, which led to the what we call legends of dragons. Seems these "Legends" originated in facts.

    Looking at this part of history, I can equate Beowulf to a modern day Steve Irwin as were dragon/dinosaur slayers of early Europe.

    Just look how we treat crocodiles and alligators that live near, or end up near neighborhoods. Game Wardens (modern day dragonslayers) used to simply kill them to make the "villagers" safe. Seems it's been going on since the days after the flood.

    Well being from Gator country originally,the game and fish wardens would capture the gator and return it to the wild.
    No I haven't read the book but it sounds interesting.

    Blackbird - I don't know if you realise that the book in question IS by a creationist. I've got a copy and read it through twice - it's very interesting indeed! Also, Bill Cooper (the author) has good info about historical records of dinosaurs. I highly recommend it! [​IMG] [​IMG]
