Let Golden Lights shine on the World of Dragons

HEY, I JUST FOUND A FEW MORE DRAGONS

THANKS TO MALCOLM TANG FOR LETTING ME BORROW THEM

Do Dragons Exist?

If they don't exist, then how did they end up in different cultures all across the world? Unless everyone had observed the same thing, or else dragons would only be a minute part of a certain civilization.

Cultures and civilizations all across the globe are separated by distance and time. They are uniquely defined in terms of knowledge, philosophy and fate. Some went extinct; some invented the compass; some created paper. Yet all of them have one thing in common; the existence of a ferocious, fire-spitting, huge serpent-like creature, and with its wing(or no wing) it could soar thousands of miles, spreading fear into the communities below.

Assimilation of culture is limited to certain civilizations, perhaps connected via trade or exploration.
For example the Indian and the Chinese were connected via trade, and as a result Buddhism was brought to China.
But lets not forget that the Greeks and Eastern Europeans also have their own version of dragon which is almost identical to the dragons of India and China, and they had never crossed the vast Steppe and stepped into China.

In Europe, dragon is the symbol of fear and evil. No one wishes to see a dragon, lest get devoured alive.
Kings and the nobles favored the slaying of dragon, even when the dragon is not destroying villages and towns.
Stories of dragon slayers were popularized and heroes were hailed as saviors. In the bible, the dragon is the symbol of the Devil himself.
This concept was made eminent by the Catholic Church during the Dark Ages, in their endeavors to manipulate the people around them to be dependent on God.
