But no one has ever seen one, so how does evryone know?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Because all literary descriptions and artistic depictions tend to follow the same formula, differing only in style. How do the artists know? I have a feeling that's where this discussion is going to take us.

Reminds me of part of a Smullyan book, where he talks about existentialism. Great line: "of course there are unicorns; they just don't exist."
"Torture doesn't work" lol
Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

The commonly-accepted prettified image of a fairy is largely a Victorian fantasy. In earlier times, fairies were typically seen as grotesque and malevolent.

Everyone knows what an Angel looks like... Smile

But no one has ever seen/photographed one, so how does everyone know?

We've seen paintings.

And don't ask how the painters knew. That's like asking "who made God?"--it's just bad manners.

We watch Dr. Who.
