Hey I'm pretty new to the website,what would you class as a gargoryle?



The stone figures frequently attached to the corners of old buildings. It's not just churches either- They have them on the old council buildings and the court-house in the town I live near. I can get some photos if anyone's really interested...  rolleyes.gif  

It is believed the name comes from a particular dragon from France that translated as "the Gargler" because it would spit jets of water from its mouth instead of the usual fire. Given that gargoyles frequently double as water spouts, thus the name was given.

There was a Gargoyles cartoon and a Movie.

Possibly gargoyles as misshapen humanoids with wings is linked back to medieval ideas of Demons.

Closest I've got to capturing one on film is this one that was up a tree. Its a zoom in and is un-enhanced, the mouth and tongue makes me think its real.

No. He wasn't kidding. He believes he sees fairies and such in all these pics. Check his posts. There is nothing to see in any of his pics but blurriness and wishful thinking.

No it was about 20 feet up in a tree, on a tree trunk, the thing that looks like a bucket is a bent branch. To me there seems to be hair on its head and there is something light brown over its left shoulder. The red tongue makes me think its alive. I didn't see it when I took the shot, its a zoom in of another part of the tree, and a genuine crop of a bigger picture.

Yes.

The french monster Gargouille derived from the original latin name gurgulio which means 'Throat' or 'Swallow'.

To the OP; it is all mythology.

I thought you thought this was a gnome, or a fairy.

I've never seen a gargoyle fly except in that cartoon (God that was good, I miss the 90s lol) because they are stone statues carved by men.  If you see something flying at night it's a bat, human craft, bird, or insect, the end.

And no, DC, none of the above are dragons.  And there's no dragon in that picture either.

    It's also my understanding that "gargoyles" were primarily intended as drain pipes which "gargled" rainwater from atop cathedral roofs, hence the name.

thats funny

To believe in God or in a guiding force because someone tells you to is the height of stupidity. We are given senses to receive our information within. With our own eyes we see, and with our own skin we feel. With our intelligence, it is intended that we understand. But each person must puzzle it out for himself or herself.
