You can't technically disprove anything. You merely look at evidence of the contrary and make an assumption based on circumstantial data (wow, I sound like Artemis.). So fairies could technically exist. And I believe they do. Living in isolation. The only way to find them would be to pull a Zito thing (a core probe). And even then, some smug, paranoid centaur would make us believe it's just magma and rock.
I do believe.

This reminds me of Peter Pan: "Everytime a child says 'I don't believe in fairies', a fairy somewhere drops dead" or something like that. I do believe, it's fascinating to think about. It's so cool, but I'm not telling anyone at church, just in case. :)
Of all things, I didn't come on to FG to see my name displayed in the pretty Birthday Box. :-( Now I'll have to wait till next year.

I think that it is definitely possible that fairies 9or something like them) could exist. I can't say that I am sure that they do or don't exist, but it is possible. If they are as intelligent as the faries in Artemis Fowl, that is. Humans know very little about what is underground and in the ocean. We can't prove that they don't exist, so it is theoreticly possible that they could exist.

Well not on an island, but it was an article in a Norwegian magazine called 'Illustrert Vitenskap'(Illustrated Science) about skeletons of small, weird people being find near a cave somewhere, and they couldn't find a way in to the cave, but there might be live examples down there... Or, that's what my mother said(she was the one who read the article).

That said, fairies exist. I'm just as certain of that as those very religious persons are in their gods.

Can you remember which issue of Illustrert Vitenskap that was? I remember having a look at it but I never read the article, and I can't keep searching through every magazine.

Eoin Colfer made a very good choice of how to put the fairy world into our own. New species are discovered all the time but not everywhere. In Ireland it would be hard for a species of big number to hide itself. And the mythology about leprechauns sure is Irish, so it would be hard for the fairies to hide themselves from us. That's of course unless they live in a completely seperated habitat from our own. Like for example far below the earths crust, perhaps even into the mantle or core (like Minerva Scriptor mentioned). But why do they come to the surfice then (so that people can spot them in Ireland)? And why have no one been cought? Simple answer. They're just smarter than us. So if fairies of the Irish type existed then the way Colfer has fictioned it seems to be one of the most likely.

And all of that leads me to believe that there is certainly a chance that faires exists (as Minerva Scriptor also wrote). However I do not find myself in the position to judge the quantity of this chance since I honestly don't have any type of evidence to hold on to. So do I believe in fairies? Until I meet a fairy myself I will only believe in the possibilty.

But don't you think it's strange that in ALL [or so I think] cultures, there's some word/variation of the word for fairies and nature spirits? I believe that as a rule, if there is no word for it, then it isn't native to that specific country [e.g. "computer" or "HTML"].

The fact that each culture has its own versions of fairies is amazing.

These cultures, namely, Oriental, Persian, Indo-Malaysian, European, African, Judeo-Christian all have their fairy mythologies. These mythologies, too, by the way, are very much in common.

Could they exist, then? :unsure:

I saw this documentary at NatGeo or Discovery or The History Channel [I forget which one, sorry] about dragons. The Europeans, Chinese, Ancient Mayans and other civilizations have mythologies devoted to these beings. Could such creatures exist, then?

Archaeologists later on discovered fossilized "dragon-like" creatures in many parts of the world. Some believe that it could be some form of dinosaur. Many theorize that the komodo dragon found in Southeast Asia is the mythological dragon's modern successor.

Is there any chance that archaeologists could dig up "fairy" bones too?

Quite far-fetched, but who knows? :unsure:

i think if they don't exist now, than they've existed SOMETIME... i mean, if dinosaurs, why not faeries? even the BIBLE spoke of fire breathing beasts and not having intercourse with animals (EWWW! :barf: ), but if it was in the Bible, someone must have been dumb enuff to try it... :blink:

If any fairies are reading these, they must be scared to death.

I can't believe that fairys never existed. I believe they did until the 1700's. I mean I wasn't alive when they were. If they are real in this century they keep themselves hidden. :rolleyes:
