I would like to think that fairies/faeries exist. I mean, I would like to think that a lot of things exist. *Is Agnostic...if that means anything to you. XD*

It's just...something that could happen. You never know.

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:

But the differences between the versions of fairies are relatively big. And when I think about it, it's hard to define a fairy. So perhaps we should rather aks if we believe in the existance of fairy-like creatures? I mean, the fairies appearence and attributes as we know them is probibly pretty far-fetched compared to a possible reality. So wouldn't fairies theoretically only exist in our mind?

We find pyramides everywhere in the world. Egyptian, Aztec, Maya, Chinese etc. but none of these old sociaties have been in any known contact, so why did they all make pyramids? It's simple. We wanna build big structures, but with the tecnology at that time the only way to build something tall that would stand is to give it a pyramide shape. And the pyramids mostly only have this basic shape in common. Aztecs used their pyramids for sacrifices while the Egyptians used them as burial chambers. Very different. My point with all of that as that it's likely that similar creatures invented by several seperate cultures shouldn't be surprising since we humans are alike. It can possibly be explained the same way as the pyramids and therefore would not suffice as proof that these creatures exists.

We must belive. If not, then life is not worth living

I don't believe in faeries, but It wouldn't take much to convince me. If I saw one I'd believe.
Do cultures in Africa and South America (especially South America) Have faeirie myths of their own. You said all cultures have the myths, but they could just have gotten them from each other, if SA has their own myths, because they weren't colonized by Britain until later, it would be more proof than if both Scotland and England had them.

I don't believe in fairies exactly, but to be a good fantasy writer you have to somewhat believe in magic.

On a side note, Lufgif returns!

We don't hate you XD .

That's a very good point. Many would probibly say: "It's not magic, you exist because of bing bang, and you can think and feel because of chemicals and electric signals in your body." But really, this doesn't explain why we think and feel like we do, but what happens physically when we think and feel.

Anyway, imagine you travel back in time and bring an airplane. People would point at you up in the air and say "It's magic! She's flying!". No one would do that today, but isn't it magic? Isn't it magic that I'm discussing this topic with people from the other side of the world? How about calculating how an object will break, isn't that magic? Even if it can be explained scientificly it doesn't mean it's not magical. What is magic anyway, can we really define it?

I don't really agree there. Anyone could find the inspiration to invent the fairies. I think Eoin Colfer is a good example to this. Besides, with the humans extreme imagination and a couple of millennia to imagine the fairies, it's very unlikely that we would not invent something like fairies.
