If there is time to deal with it, I would appreciate a more extended explanation about how the one (invention of dragons) is related to the other (Jung’s Collective Unconscious).
It is commonly held that the memory of dragons with man is the remnant of man’s experience of contact with wild beasts of the lizard family in older times, some of which live to the day, like crocodiles. The memory has become resident in its partial capacity to remain with the genes, which fact allows us to talk about evolution with living creatures through time as they adapt to the environment better based on the experiences of their ancestors.
This partial capacity may be compared with that of the memory of the whale, where the memory of the mother is transferred whole to the offspring. It happens with whales only. This is why they are considered, so to speak, as the wisest animals we know.

What do you mean by “believe in creation”? I am asking because creation must have happened at some time (otherwise we are in a non-existent world like in a dream now) while I suspect that by “creation” you probably mean “Biblical Creation”, the particular manner in which the world was created, which is what the Bible tells us. I hope you forgive my asking but it is not right only to assume what others mean.

Birds appeared on day five, but other land animals did not appear until day six, so how did birds evolve from land based animals?
Stars where made after the earth...day four..
Bible shows God creating man from the dust of the ground, it does not say, man come from another animal.
And Eve was made out of part of Adam.....
Just to name a few problems....
Again I need your help, Dark Knight
, if of course there is enough time for you to devote and if you are not tired of helping us understand these difficult matters.
I know that in the American mentality, the phrase “there are problems” is common, and it is often used to mean a lot. Unfortunately, not all members who read these posts are American. I am trying to see what you are saying here above, so I would beg you to lead me by correcting my following understanding.
There are problems in how to explain how birds appeared on the fifth day of Creation according to the Bible, and at the same time accept that birds evolved starting from animals of the land. Because these animals were created by The Almighty on the sixth day.
I did not understand why the stars are compared with earth as made after it, unless you mean that this is against the widespread opinion that stars and this planet (Earth) were created in a line of time which is not exactly the starts first, then the Earth, but according to it, the Earth was made in a process when some stars had already come to existence.
While the human being was made from dust and God’s breath and also from the body of the first male man later, some scientists held until recently that man came from the apes, a theory which has by now been proven false of course. Those who negated the Biblical way of creation of the human being are now searching other avenues of explanation, for example, they say that man appeared on the planet and study to find out how.
