    Hello everyone,

    Im not sure if this is a right place to ask this,so it's not please forgive me.
    I did a little research on internet about dinosaurs as always,and i found something about Lizard man of Scape Ore Swamp.
    I ask on other forums about cryptozoology and i get answer from one guy who lived 15 miles from that place.

    Here is a wikipedia link of story about lizard man:

    Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I know this probably isn't place but i wanted opinion about it from you as a scientists,so please tell me could this be real story or just a legend?

    PS.
    Here is answer what i get from guy who lived near that place:

    I grew up 15 miles from Scape Ore Swamp. The news media missed the real story. If they had just explored gone about 15 miles from the Interstate they would have discovered that the people there have been dealing with these things for at least 150 years. Oh they are real alright. I personally know probably a dozen people who have seen them. Everyone knows someone who has around there. I've heard them scream in the swamps and break trees down. Makes the hair stand up on my arms just talking about it. I could tell you stuff you that would blow your mind. Carolina Bays so thick with briars it takes 1/2 a day just to chop your way into one. Inside huge swamp oaks hide cold clear pools over white sand filled from black holes the size of manhole covers with water boiling up from deep down. They move around in the heavy woods following the rivers, and hiding out in the Bays. Huge disks moving silently and slowly over the swamps and bays just over the treetops with what looks like a search light, the beam as big around as a 50 gallon drum aiming down moving thru the woods. They gather under the beam. It draws them. I know people that have seen families of them with little ones looking up at the light, arms raised towards it. You stay away from that place. The people there don't like outsiders.

    A whole lot of, "I know people that claim to have seen something."

    "My sisters nephews schoolmates brothers best friends aunts coworkers mother swears she saw one of whatever those things are called..."

    I can top that easily- I can say I personally saw them.
    I saw them pirouette in daisies with flying saucers overhead and unicorns frolicking in the meadow nearby. I saw it all with my own two eyes- I swear I did...
    But then I left because I had a date with a gnome.

    There is not enough evidence to convince me (beyond reasonable doubt) that such a being exists.

    Sad when you think about, in this wondrous technological age that despite decades of eyewitness accounts, there isn't a camera made that can take a decent picture of a crypto-zoological creature.
    All that belongs to human understanding, in this deep ignorance and obscurity, is to be skeptical, or at least cautious; and not to admit of any hypothesis, whatsoever; much less, of any which is supported by no appearance of probability...Hume

    Anyway,what do you think why is so much reptilians and serpent worship in human history around whole world?
    Almost every culture had reptilian gods.

    Because snakes = venom = bad = scary = worship to make them go away. Why are there so many dragon worshipers?

    How can one worship something that does not exist?

    from the wiki
    The Lizard Man is described as being 7 feet (2.1 m) tall, bipedal, and well built, covered in dark hair with scaly lizard like skin on hands, feet and face. It is said to have three toes on each foot and three fingers on each arm, which witnesses say measure 6 feet in length and 2 feet in width. The creature has an incredible degree of strength, more than capable of ripping into a car. It might have a tail with six spikes
    How does something 7ft tall get around with arms or feet that are 6 feet long and 2 feet wide? I don't see something shaped like that moving very fast or at all for that matter. If any crypto beast did exist, it would still be subject to the laws of physics.

    I've no idea - but it seems to be a popular thing to do.

    Just make sure you aren't trapping them out of season. The Dept of wild life doesn't tend to like that very much.

    The original account is consistent with smokescreen: 17-year-old arrives home very late, with car scratched and dented, says the Lizard Man did it.

    But all cultures have "wild men of the forest" myths, that explain the universal reality of outlaw and otherwise homeless tramps skulking at the margins of civilization. The myths refer to real wild men, and may be more or less colourful.

    Let me guess, you had to pay for the cinema tickets and dinner because they were a little short?

    Even the British of the 80's had this going on. Some even caught them on video.
