Are unicorns real? Well, no. They used to be considered real by scientists of the time though. Naturalists have made some errors over the years, for instance, when Greek sailors found an elephant skull they thought the trunk hole was an eye socket and called it a Cyclops. People in history can not be blamed for their errors: there’s a lot of bonkers looking beasts about in this world, so a horse type creature with a single horn isn’t that mad really, not if you compare it to a kangaroo a duck billed platypus or a manatee.

I’ve put together this small collection of old unicorns images for no other reason than that they are pleasing to me. Unicorns are unfortunately now heavily associated with little girls, fantasy dream worlds and genuine nutters. Within the latter category lies someone called Diana Cooper, she believes in unicorns as kind of spirit guides. Here’s some blurb from her website to give you some idea of the scope of her nonsense:

Unicorns are pure white seventh dimensional horses who have returned to Earth for the first time since Atlantis to help us with our ascension. They are known as the purest of the pure and have qualities of love, peace, calm, gentleness, hope, majesty, caring, magic and mystery.  They will come to you when you are ready, helping you too to develop your unicorn qualities.   

They have spiraling horns of light which radiate from their foreheads, through which they give healing, joy and enlightenment. The light of a unicorn is so powerful that it enters you gradually, in waves, only ever as much as you can cope with at any time.”

Watch this video if you want to learn about the royal unicorns and their hierarchy, and how you, yourself can meet one, should you wish. This is the kind of tosh that will fling us back to the dark ages people:



And if you’re on twitter, don’t worry you can follow her, here’s a lovely example of one of her moving tweets (one of the retweets is mine btw):

That saddened me, so lets get some historical perspective…. I reckon if you got too close to a unicorn it would charge you and disembowel you, so there.

And then I found this by mistake, now I’ve seen it, you have to look too. It’s only fair…. wrap your eyes around this beauty. Yes, it is real, and no I don’t know what’s happened there, I couldn’t bring myself to read in to it, just in case I accidentally found more rank pictures in the same vein. So she’s a real life human unicorn, (humicorn?)
