    Eh... Wikipedia is only a reliable and precise source if you have the level of Media Literacy that allows you to question various sources for reliability in a decent manner.

    So... if you are dealing with a Dunning Kruger level of inability in the area of Media Literacy... saying it is not a reliable source is kind of true. Even though the current stance should not have you able to make accurate statements about reliable sources. It is a really weird form of coincidental urban mythology with relevant reality. As the urban myth is true for the cases of people spreading it--but people not spreading it, there is a chance that it is not true, due entirely to levels of competency in Media Literacy being the actually source of said Myth.

    That being said... Wikipedia DOES exist in the same area that if you can properly handle that being reliable... you can also properly handle the Weekly World News as being reliable. As you are going to spend more time looking into the sources, what is being referenced, how accurately it is being referenced, any possible misinterpretations, etc.

    The issue comes mostly from when you are not spending most of your time going to the sources being citing... anything is about as reliable of a resource as the rags Rupert Murdock is in charge of.. the only difference is that Wikipedia does not have a page 3 girl.

    ... wait... I've just got a BRILLIANT[LY TERRIBLE] IDEA FOR A POSSIBLE COMPETITOR TO WIKIPEDIA! The website that is too big to take on rationally anymore... it involves a similar repository of information... but I also have a Page 3 Girl on it.. or just have all the pages done like it is a Page 3 Girl saying it all! Yes! I HAVE NO REASON TO THINK THIS IS SOMETHING I COULD EVER REGRET! NO WAY THIS COULD BACKFIRE IMMENSELY!

    Complex web made from complex threads, making it very complex.

    Naw... it is more just a large mass of simple easy to follow structures.

    Essentially... once you have a sufficient amount of easy to follow structures, it becomes indistinguishable from a single complex structure.

    That is the true folly of humans.

    If it's mythical then it doesn't exist, hence why it's mythical...

    I believe they may have been real a very long time ago and were catalogued  (drawn) somewhere and thats how they became "mythical ". 

    Perhaps proof such as skeletons and whatnot haven't  been discovered because they are fossilized too deep in the earth?

    Myths are not from something not existing.

    They come from the events of the alleged stories taking place so far from where you are in location, time and/or comprehension that makes them into myth.

    It is more a matter of distance. Which makes most myths more like a long running game of "telephone"--which makes the fun in them trying to determine what were additions, and what were removals from the original information.

    I believe the existence of some mythical creatures are more credible than others, and there's always a chance some may actually exist, there's plenty of evidence for the existence of Bigfoot for example, videos recorded, pictures, fur samples retrieved, witness testimony, Bigfoot appears to be a relative of Humans etc.

    Logic and Reason Above All Else

    Until the day comes when there is solid and clear evidence of their existence, I will assume they are just wild imagination, embellishment or misinformation created by our ancestors. 

    If you watched the animated movie Monsters, inc, the part where the monsters from the restaurant each gave their account of what they saw, I believe this is probably what happened in real life a long time ago with our ancestors.

    A flying bat could be described as a 'black, screeching creature that flew in the cover of darkness".

    Im awesome. You are not.

    You misunderstand...

    Mythical creatures are creatures of pure story. Creatures such as bigfoot, Loch Ness monster and other paranormal creatures are a different type of being...

    I don't believe in anything I don't have credible evidence to support. With one exception, Megalodon. I think on some level I KNOW it doesn't exist, but I just want it to be true so badly.

    I believe the existence of genie, (creatures created by God from fire (some of whom are Muslims and some infidels), a creature that cannot be seen by the naked eye) because I experience it myself.My junior in college got possessed in front of me.
