What is a "de facto argument"? --Horace 22:19, 1 March 2007 (EST)

That word, I do not think it means what Conservative thinks it means.. I'm not sure what he means either, and in any event, not all translations use unicorn in those locations, and furthermore in all those locations there isn't any obvious reason that it would have to be reffering to an actual creature.

The hebrew word found in Numbers 23:22 is re'em. The strong's number for this is 07214 See http://www.blueletterbible.org/cgi-bin/words.pl?strongs=07214 . In the KJV this was translated as 'unicorn'. In the NKJV Numbers 23:22 reads "God brings them out of Egypt; He has strength like a wild ox." In the NLT it reads "God has brought them out of Egypt; he is like a strong ox for them." In NIV it reads "God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox." So on and so on. The vulgate reads "Deus eduxit eum de Aegypto cuius fortitudo similis est rinocerotis". While it may be referenced in the KJV nine times, it is not necessarily the right word. Bibical scholars today believe the word refers to a great aurochs or wild bull. Unless one is going to argue that the KJV is the only version of the Bible it is appropriate to make the distinction in the article. --Mtur 17:36, 8 March 2007 (EST)

"The existence of unicorns is controversial"

This is embarrassing.

It is more than embarrassing, especially as Dr. Richard Paley, noted Conservapedia expert on all critters crypto or dinosaurian is merely yanking your chain. I suggest someone check out objectiveministries.com, or at least try googling Fellowship University.

"Baramin" haha, never thought I'd see the word used in a sentence as if it meant something. Human 23:50, 27 April 2007 (EDT)

Should Unicorns be in Category:Mammals?

Given the uncertainty about their actual form? --Jeremiah4-22 13:52, 27 April 2007 (EDT)
