dinosaurs figure prominently in evolutionary discourse, we
must not be tempted to “throw the baby out with the
bathwater”. Evolution is a faulty theory based on a faulty
premise, but dinosaurs did indeed exist. That they did
exist is evident in the fossil record, and you will see a
passage from the Bible that could be referring to dinosaurs.
As I said, the
fossil record gives evidence of the existence of dinosaurs.
Intact fossils have been unearthed, and their very large
footprints have been discovered as well. According to the
evolutionists, dinosaurs lived hundreds of millions of years
ago, becoming extinct 60 million years before humans walked
the earth. There is no science behind the age
approximations though, and they actually contradict the
fossil record. Scientists in the former Soviet Union, as
well as in Arizona, have unearthed dinosaur tracks and human
tracks in the same layers of the same rock. This would be
impossible if dinosaurs had died out millions of years
dinosaurs, just as he created man. Evidence indicates that
dinosaurs were wiped out by the flood. Did Noah take
dinosaurs on the ark? The Bible tells us that Noah did what
he was told, so that indicates that he did indeed bring
dinosaurs on the ark. Some species of dinosaurs were quite
aquatic, and would not have needed to ride on the ark. As
for the others, Noah probably selected young dinosaurs. He
would have done this for two reasons: young dinosaurs would
be smaller, and thus more suited to life on the ark, and
they would also present the best choices for being able to
reproduce after the flood. Why did they then die after the
flood? Probably due to the scarcity of the foods that were
previously staple nutrients for the dinosaurs.
One of the oldest books of the
Bible – Job – mentions creatures that were most likely
dinosaurs. The book of Job was probably written around
2,000 years before Jesus was born. The Bible's best
description of a dinosaur-like animal is recorded in Job
chapter 40. "Look at the behemoth, which I made along with
you and which feeds on grass like an ox. What strength he
has in his loins, what power in the muscles of his belly!
His tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are
close-knit. His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like
rods of iron. He ranks first among the works of God..."(Job
40:15-19) The behemoth were not afraid. They did not need to
be; they were huge. Their tails were so long and
strong that God compared them to cedars - one of the largest
and most spectacular trees of the ancient world. Some Bible
scholars think this passage refers to elephants or
hippopotami. This is incongruent with the description
though, as elephants and hippopotami have tails like ropes
or cords, not like “cedars” as described in Job. The next
chapter of Job talks about another huge, fierce animal – a
sea monster named Leviathan. It was not a whale or
crocodile, because the Hebrew language had other words to
describe such animals. Leviathan may be a plesiosaur – a
large, seagoing reptile that evolutionists say became
extinct 60 million years before man evolved.
The evolutionists have certainly
identified more species of dinosaur than ever actually
Evolutionists too often use partial skeletons to develop
artistic renditions of some amazing creatures.
Archaeopteryx was, for a long time, championed as a
transitional form between reptiles and birds. Even
evolutions now dispute that claim, as fossils of modern
birds have been discovered in deeper layers of the earth.
Furthermore, many skeletons have been fashioned from bones
found fifty feet apart and dozens of feet separated in
Dinosaurs did exist. They did not evolve over millions of
years, though. They sprang suddenly onto the planet,
probably on the same day during which God created man.
Dinosaurs became extinct almost as suddenly. Evolutionists
who insist that dinosaurs evolved cannot support that claim,
as there are no transitional forms (fossils that show one
species changing to another) to submit into evidence.
