I’m, involved on a religous debate on another forum. Somehow the concept of unicorns came up and I’m left wondering: Excatly HOW do we know these things didn’t exist. I have some ideas, but would like some answers from someone in the know
When did the unicorn myth arise?
Have the ancients declared the myth to be myth, or did they truly believe in the existance of unicorns? (In other words do we have a writer of the time saying: “And so here Pete paints the mythological unicorn hunt to symbolise fertility and the prowess of men”).
I know there are no fossil records of unicorns, but are there fossils that would suggest such a creature could nto have existed?
