This is the first post of my blog series about whether dragons are, in fact, evil. It covers the Bible, as the entire series is a result of my discussion with a quite religious relative on whether dragons are evil and whether I should use a dragon as logo for my blog (the same dragon I'm using as an avatar here - and yes, I drew it myself). The answer to the question is, naturally: it is complicated. Are Dragons Evil, Part 1 – Introduction and Bible Summa summarum: as I said, complicated. But as can be seen from above, even the Bible - the Old Testament, especially - does not support the idea that all dragons are somehow inherently evil. Dangerous, independent and violent, yes, those are all true - though even the "violent" part is not actually true for all dragons. But evil, no - or at least no more than any other living beings.
