Wait. . . did Thomas just say that unicorns existed in the psalmist's day? Did unicorns survive the flood after all?
Well, probably, but don't get too excited unicorns aren't what you think they are. Thomas cites Job 39, explaining, "'The rhinoceros', that is the unicorn, 'will never desire to serve you', but will die. . '"
So there you have it from Thomas Aquinas: rhinos are unicorns.
Tri Star has led me astray.
But I guess a rhino running across the screen wouldn't sell as well.
For those who might not understand that this post was intended with humor, let me be clear. . . I am not suggesting that Thomas believed rhinos could fly.
