Does the Mythical Unicorn Exist or Not?

unicorn

Pretty much everyone wants to believe in the magnificent unicorn. They are one of the mythical creatures that seem to be loved on the collective whole. Robert Vavra did a great job of convincing us all that they just might exist.

Worldwide Love Affair

There is unicorn mythology from all corners of the world, however, everyone has to make that call for themselves, even though most of us will continue to believe somewhere deep in our hearts. Perhaps that’s how they do exist, because so many people wish it to be true.

A Real Unicorn Skeleton?

*Sadly the images originally used in this discussion are no longer available :( sorry about that!

This is convincing, although I doubt it’s validity. I was able to find news of a unicorn skeleton exhibition, but it was difficult to tell if it was this that was displayed.

It’s probably just a goat skeleton, but that doesn’t dull it’s cool factor.

Just like a Tiffany’s box, the packaging really sells it. Put a goat skeleton in a box with unicorns on the lid and viola you have unearthed a mythical being.

I’m not a total skeptic, but you’d think if someone found a real live unicorn skeleton there would be news about it somewhere.

The horn on the nose is really what looks fishy, however if it isn’t real it is a well done fake.

A Scientific Letdown

This guy doesn’t buy it, he’s a man of science and the scientific method has no time for magical horse beings, no matter how beautiful they are.

Proof For the Believers

If the above has made you skeptical, never fear, I left the best for last. Even if only a little part of you believes, this video is testimony enough.

If you like unicorns, read more about them. Check out the list of unicorn books I put together just for the unicorn lover in you.

    Alright, now listen people.
    I read through all the comments, and the non believers are wrong.

    Unicorns are real. Just because scientist hasn’t proved that Unicorns are real doesn’t mean anything. They just haven’t found them yet. And Unicorns are in the Bible. Just because other Versions of Bibles doesn’t say anything about Unicorns is probably because they have different type of religion or some sort.
    Different versions me different things.

    I research about Unicorns because people continue to say that they’re fake, but they’re real.

        Damian, the lack of evidence of a thing is not proof of it’s absence. This is axiomatic lest one be asked to prove one’s intelligence, or the existence of things before theorizing they exist.

        Statistics is a much better indicator of what is likely, than simple observation. To much rests on the human interpretation. Too many scoffed at flight, or rockets, or a free press, or women as equals.

        Please. Be biased if you will, that is fine and healthy. But derisive, uncouth and using just plain old bad logic is not helpful to yourself young man.

      I watched the video. Very small. It would appear that the “horn” is part of the back alcove at first.

      However the reflected light index indicates it is more likely a twig attached to the tree. In any event, video analysis shows conclusively that it is NOT part of the alcove.

      Whether it is part of the tree I have yet to ascertain given the change in zoom as the animal bolts. But I’m workin’ on the math to refocus and unzoom to get a mathematically static view from say about 840 or so to it disappearing into the woods on the far end of it’s leap.

      Whatever it is, it’s real, the tree it eats from is real. The “horn” is not a lens aberration, nor a lens flare, nor part of the alcove.

      I won’t say it’s a Unicorn. But Math is a far better arbiter than scoffing.

      Aye alright, just because you believe in the existence in unicorns, doesn’t mean others can’t believe in the nonexistence. Just because we have some myths claiming unicorn to be a horse like creature with a horn, only to be tamed by a virgin; doesn’t mean, its true. Think about it. Is there actually ANY solid proof, enough to convince someone, of their existence?
      The point of this, don’t act like a little b.itch, just because someone finds it hard to believe that a creature from myths and stories actually romes the same planet we live on.

    Hmmm…. The scientist didn’t really prove anything, but that video was too blurry to make any thing out. If you freeze it at [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4PL1ns00h-4&feature=player_embedded#t=33s] you can see something. The big problem is that it’s so out of focus that it could be a wild horse. The problem with what appears to be the horn is that it curves toward the nose, and a “traditional” unicorn horn is supposed to be straight. I’m open to the existence of unicorns, just as I am open to the existence of Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster.

There are Rhinos..everybody agrees…..Why not a wild zebra like horse with a central tusk/horn/antler ? They still hunt Rhinos for their horn, for its magical powers. Makes obvious sense that the ancients hunted the Unicorn to extinction for similar reasons !?

    Unicorns kick ass. They ain’t real. The last video shows what looks like a unicorn, but it is not a unicorn, in fact, it looked as if the unicorn horn is actually a rock in the back.

    1. James

      Yeah. I thought so too.

      Took the video and unrolled all the frames.

      Definitely not part of the rock alcove.
      If you look at the alleged “horn” at frame 861 and compare to frame 885, even accounting for the relative motion it is most assuredly not part of the alcove. :(

      So I looked at the light backscatter. Whatever it is, it is out of the shadow of the hill, so it’s part of the tree, or the equine, or some other unidentified object. But nope. Not part of the alcove.

    why will our ancesters randomly make up such thing as a unicorn unless they’ve seen one. so they must have seen one, or mistaken a horse standing under some shadow and made it seems that it has a horn. or it is real but it became extict because the humans started hunting their horns for something, like we do for elephant’s tusks. so we cant judge it yet.

    Orthodox Jews believe in a type of unicorn called a takhash. (It is also possible that the r’em was a unicorn.) But it probably did not look like a horse and it probably had a spotted coat. The truth is that we don’t know much about it. One of our tradition was that it was very rare (perhaps magically rare in that Gd only made one). Anyway, the takhash skin was what was used to cover the mishkan, the Tabernacle. So that’s Orthodox Jewish belief. Some moderns say that there was no actual unicron and that the tradition is just describing what looked like a single horn (either two very straight parallel horns or maybe a breed of goat whose horns grow together).

    Unicorns are very real, you can say dolphins, are birds are real… But guess what God created many people or animals we don’t know about, but if you were smart, you would go to the bible, you will find you will find unicorn, plus how do you think the lock ness monster or thunderbird came to story or even the boogey man GUESS WHAT! story’s come from real live events from 3,000,000,000 years ago to just yesterday…. But Guess WHAT! Government does not want people in fear so they hunt down creatures that causes NO harm, and kills them and keeps there secret, WHAT DO THINK ABOUT THAT! you may ask ” I’ve never EVER seen a unicorn there’s no such thing” At first you may think that but Unicorns are very real it’s just the Government keeps secrets :( WHY? anyway if you believe…

    Um… actually there are horses that are all white. At the end of the greying process a horse is all white with grey skin. There are also maximally expressed paterns in pintos where the white covers all of the pigmented hairs (Think of it as one giant white spot) There is also a dominate white gene in Thoroughbreds. Last but not least, many people still mistake a very pale cremello as a white horse.

    So there you go. There are 4 ways to have a horse that appears to be white. :)

    Sorry, but there are white horses. True albinos (white born)are white. Extreme sabino overos (white with just a tiny patch of dark hair) can look pure white from a short distance. And – last not least even a grey horse may look pure white – if it starts as a palomino. I’ve known such a horse, in later years he was pure milk-white.

    There are unicorn legends in Europe (including Russia), the Near East, Persia, India, Tibet, China, Japan and the ancient cultures of Mohendjo-Daro and Harappa. Their character is very different. They range from a gentle and healing protector, a spiritual companion, to a siren-like predator, an earth-shaker and an bloodthirsty killer.

    Antal Festetics is a serious scientist and ‘Die ganze Woche’ just a not really serious news magazine. I doubt that he was cited correctly, he wouldn’t endanger his reputation in this way. Further I doubt the whole encounter. The Harz mountains are no horse country. Horses are rare there.
    The legend of the ‘Einhornhoehle’ is much younger than from the frankish period. It was fabricated when the mayor of Magdeburg, Otto von Guericke, built an unicorn in 1663 from fossil bones found at the cave. Guericke’s so-called unicorn had only two legs, and was constructed from fossil bones of a wooly rhinoceros and a mammoth, with the horn of a narwhal. It is still exhibited as a hoax at the zoo of Osnabrueck.

    Just to get the facts straight: 400000 years ago there were no humans (Homo sapiens) as you know them. Our ancestor at that time was Homo erectus (Heidelberg man and Peking man and Java man)and he did not have the ability to speak. They couldn’t tell any tales that might have survived. The gene that enabled speech in humans developed only 100000 years ago. AND they did not live 80 years. 40 years was exceptionally long for good old Homo erectus.

    Legends do not survive that long. Hippidions,Mammoths, Sabretoothcats, giant sloths became extinct less than 10.000 years ago. There are no legends about THEM and they were as unusal as an unicorn.

    Well, a hiding-place in the sky is a very unsafe place with all the modern airplane traffic. Further out there is no atmosphere, that makes breathing very hard (*g*).

    Get your facts straight:
    1.) Lions live in prides, they are not solitary. That ‘trait’ can’t come from them. Stallions often live solitary – that is a horse or wild ass ‘trait’.
    2.) Lion tail? Have you ever seen, that a lion’s tail has a ‘brush’ at the tip? Just like a donkey, so that is a donkey ‘trait’ not a lion’s.
    3.) There is nothing like traits in animals. It is behavior – and it is typical for a species.
    4.)’They live mostly in Europe. In high mountains, away from civilization.’ – Last time I looked, the european mountains were overrun by tourists. Cablecars going up the peaks – civilisation everywhere.
    Wild animals are crowded together in small game reservations and intently monitored.

    Wow you couldn’t be more right, I think it’s ridiculous how so many people come to this site just to make fun of others beliefs. Is it really that hard not to comment if you don’t have anything decent to say? This is supposed to be a fun website where people can comment about the possible existence of unicorns. So plz, if you only have offending things to say, just don’t comment at all. It would make everyone else a whole lot happier =)

    You are exactly right! I think that it is sad how all of these people waste their time bringing others down, and I don’t quite understand why these type of people have to comment in the 1st place….if you don’t believe in unicorns then that’s fine, I’m talking about the people who tell others that they need a psychologist or a shrink or somethin. It’s just plain rude, and nobody wants to hear that. It even makes me kinda sad just readin those comments 8(

    Hey everybody. I would just like to point out how stupid Tory is. He/She states that the early natives killed all horses! ALL. umm. if someone were to research what they state as facts they would come to realize “domesticated” horses started off wild. And the fact. Yes. i said “Fact” tory. That it would be impossible for Something to be hunted down and killed off completely by people who use horses for transportation. Also. i would like tory to explain why there are wild horses in colorado if they are all dead. Just to clarify for people who are to stupid to interpret what i mean. These are LIVE wild horses. And theyre not pets either. hence the word “wild”. But hey. Thanks for the comment tory. =)

    Hey, Tory isn’t stupid! About 10000 years ago the truly wild horses became extinct in America. The first amerindian hunters were probably part of the problem. They hunted horses but did not use them for transport.
    The spanish reintroduced horses to America – as Tory mentioned. The american natives became horseman after the spanish horses became feral in the 16th. century.
    You are the stupid one Zirkle, since you know nothing of the Horse’s history and doesn’t know the difference between wild and feral. Let me spell it out for you in simple words. Wild means: No horse of the lineage was ever domesticated. Feral means: Once domesticated, but gone back to the wild. The descendants of a feral animal are feral too, not wild. The word Mustang means translated ‘stray livestock animal’.

    Una,
    it is nearly 130 years (1880) since the kraken or giant squid was scientifically described and accepted. It’s correct name is Architeuthis and there may be as much as 8! different species. (Architeuthis dux, Architeuthis hartingii, Architeuthis japonica, Architeuthis kirkii, Architeuthis martensi, Architeuthis physeteris, Architeuthis sanctipauli, Architeuthis stockii). In the past, they have found a lot of young Architeuthis but the first adult animal was observed 3 years ago in 2006.
    There is a marked difference between a deep-sea dwelling animal and a land-dwelling animal. We know less about the deep sea than about the moon. Undiscovered big-sized beasts may still live in jungles,the Himalayas or Andes, but nowhere else on earth. Small-sized mammals are discovered up to the present date, but the last big-sized one was the jungle-dwelling Okapi. That discovery was more than 100 years ago.

    Keely,
    it wouldn’t work. The foal’s immune system would reject the strange tissue. It is possible to suppress the immune system with drugs like sandimmune and cortison, but in this case the foal would never be healthy or beautiful. It would be very prone to catch infectious diseases and barely be able to resist them – it might die young. Cortison bloats a body, so it would be very obese and not sleek and beautiful.

    By the way, you seem to be interested in the re’em. While your identification as an aurochs is correct,it is likely that the word was alternately used for another animal. I found in an old book(Friedrich A. Meyer – 1796) an even older citation: ‘The horns of a re’em are beautiful, but they are not strong. (Sifrei, Vezos HaBerachah 12)’
    The horns of an aurochs were very strong. Rav Saadia Gaon seems to identify the re’em as the arabian oryx, a really beautiful antelope with long and slightly curved horns.
    Further, I think we should rule out the persian karkadan. The word comes from Punjabi and means rhinoceros.

    I wish you very good luck with your story and it would be very cool if you would post a link to it here.
    I don’t think, that there is any evidence that horse-like unicorns ever existed (except Kiangs,of course(:)) but I love unicorn stories, specially those from Elizabeth Scarborough. I’m looking forward to yours!

    Keep hoping! Just realise, that the odd toed ungulates have a very, very good fossil record. In theory you are right – anything might crop up. In reality? The chances are slim.

    Keely,
    I love your story!
    If you need some background information look at this link:
    http://digitallibrary.amnh.org/dspace/bitstream/2246/4555/1/N0740.pdf
    It is about the horned horses – they exist in real live, but are no unicorns.
    As far as we know, horses with a single big horn on the forehead never existed, but there is no reason why they shouldn’t evolve in the far future – they have the potential for it. In the past 2 relatives of the horse developed horns: Rhinoceros and Brontotherium. That proves the ability of odd-toed ungulates to evolve horns.
    We can even discern how a future horse unicorn would have to look: The horn would consist of hair, just like a rhino’s horn, therefore it would be fairly massive, have the color of the coat and grow with the years. It wouldn’t be the popular ivory spiral (which is a narwal’s tusk by the way). To support the horn, the horse unicorn’s head would be rather big and massive, but very dishnosed. The backskull would have to be much more pronounced than in a horse today. The neck would be very massive too, and arched. Apart from that, the body plan might be similar to an Andalusian stallion or even a Draught-Horse. I hope, I gave you some information to work with, and pleeeeeeeeeeeease don’t forget to post the link to your new story – I can’t wait to read it!

    a unicorn existed but no longer does.. there’s evidence though it does seems fishy. main things you need to know is, loosen up! your all getting fact and no fiction and its BORING and IRRATATING. its good to loosen up and have a laugh, letting ur imagination run away with u is amazing, fun and lets life be more happy and no so SERIOUS and THATS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!

    I wish people would stop claiming to have evidence wihout sharing it or sharing the references. That’s just stupid. Fishy evidence is no evidence.
    Writing unicorn stories and ‘designing’ a unicorn is much more imaginative and cooler than dropping silly hints. And this discussion is about fact not fiction.(:()

    I love your story Keely! Very creative :) Horses and dragons are my favorite. I like how you ended it ?
    Oh, and I noticed your horse drawings. If you use Paint (it looks like you do), you should buy a drawing pad. It makes it much easier to draw on the computer. No trying to draw with that pesky mouse anymore :) The one I have came with a version of Photoshop and Coral Painter, where you can draw stuff to, only you have sooo many brush options to draw with.
