    Funny comic!

    But, you’re going to have the fighting fundies on your case; after all, the bible attests to the reality of unicorns in Numbers 23:22, 24:8; Deuteronomy 33:17, Job 39:9, 10; Psalms 22:21, 29:6, 92:10; Isaiah 34:7
    Of course, someone will then say that this is a bad translation, and it should be “narwhal” or “rhinoceros” or “oryx”, but then you’ll get a fight between the more fundy KJV-only crowd, and the less fundy “I like my fairy tales, but not too ridiculous” crowd.

    The New King James, the Revised, and most of the newer translation all translate the word as ‘wild ox.’ For 1500 years, the Western Church used the Latin Bible, and it says "rinocerotis, which may be translated as unicorn or rhino (your choice).

    The early Christians (and the first Englishmen to translate the Bible into English) used the Greek LXX Old Testament, NOT the Hebrew (which they could not understand) and the LXX states that the creature was a ‘μονοκέρωτος’, which clearly has just one meaning, ‘unicorn.’ (The early Christians as well as the translator of the Authorised King James Version believed the LXX was a more reliable version of the Old Testament than the Hebrew; besides, the earliest Christians spoke two languages, their mother tongue and Greek, and neither of those were Hebrew or Aramaic).

    Of course, if one goes back to the Hebrew, the word is reem, and a reem looks like this:
