What about the Dinosaurs?
This frequent question, asked in just this way, implies many questions related to dinosaurs—a word meaning "terrible lizards." When did they live? What killed the dinosaurs? What were they like? What does the Bible say about them? Could so many large animals have fit on the Ark? There were about 500 different types of dinosaurs. Most were large; some even gigantic. One adult dinosaur was as tall as a five-story building. However, some adults were small, about the size of a chicken.
Many questions will be answered if we focus on one question, "When did they live?" Two quite different answers are usually given. Evolutionists say that dinosaurs lived, died, and became extinct at least 60 million years before man evolved. Others believe God created all living things during the creation week, so man and dinosaurs lived at the same time. If we look at the evidence, sorting out these two very different answers should be easy.
NO THERE ARE NOT JUST THE TWO ABOVE TEACHINGS; THE THIRD IS THE CORRECT ONE - THEY LIVED BEFORE MAN WAS CREATED, WHEN THE COVERING CHERUBIM RULED THE EARTH. HOW LONG THAT WAS FOR IN NUMBERS OF CENTURIES WE ARE NOT TOLD - Keith Hunt
Did dinosaurs become extinct at least 60 million years before man evolved? Almost all textbooks that address the subject say they did. Movies and television vividly portray this. One hears it even at Disney World and other amusement parks. Some will say that every educated person believes this. We frequently hear stories that begin with impressive-sounding phrases such as, "Two hundred million years ago, when dinosaurs ruled the earth,..." But none of this is evidence; some of it is an appeal to authority. Evidence must be observable and verifiable.
TRUE THERE IS NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE AS TO WHEN DINOSAURS AND THE DINOSAUR AGE STARTED AND STOPPED, BEFORE THE WORLDWIDE FLOOD OF GENESIS 1:2 CAME, AND DESTROYED NOT ONLY THE DINOSAURS BUT THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH ALSO - Keith Hunt
Did man and dinosaurs live at the same time?
Scientists in the former Soviet Union have reported a layer of rock containing more than 2,000 dinosaur footprints alongside tracks "resembling human footprints."1 Obviously, both types of footprints were made in mud or sand that later hardened into rock. If some are human footprints, then man and dinosaurs lived at the same time. Similar discoveries have been made in Arizona.2 Were it not for the theory of evolution, few would doubt that these were human footprints.
AH WHAT BROWN AND OTHERS DO NOT SEEM TO GET, IS THE FACT THAT IN THE BEGINNING OF MANKIND, GOD MADE SOME HUGE DINOSAUR TYPE CREATURES ALSO. WHERE DO WE GET THE STORIES OF "DRAGONS" AND "DRAGONS BLOWING OUT FIRE FROM THEIR MOUTH OR NOSTRILS"? BROWN AND OTHERS FORGET MANY ANIMALS IN THE PAST, AS LIKE TODAY, BECOME EXTINCT ! Keith Hunt
Soft dinosaur tissue has now been recovered from several dinosaurs: three tyrannosaurs (T. Rex) and one hadrosaur. It is ridiculous to believe that soft tissue can be preserved for more than 60,000,000 years, but it could be preserved for 5,000 years.
I AGREE THE TIME FRAME FROM EVOLUTIONISTS IS OFTEN WAY WAY OUT IN LEFT FIELD; BUT ALSO THE TIME FRAME GIVEN BY "CREATIONISTS" OF 6,000 YEARS AGO WHEN THE UNIVERSE WAS CREATED BY GOD, IS ALSO WAY WAY OUT OF THE BALL-PARK - Keith Hunt
The Book of Job is one of the oldest books ever written. In it, God tells of His greatness as Creator and describes an animal, called Behemoth, as follows:
Behold now, Behemoth, which I made as well as you;
He eats grass like an ox. Behold now, his strength in
his loins, And his power in the muscles of his belly.
He bends his tail like a cedar; The sinews of his
thighs are knit together. His bones are tubes of bronze;
His limbs are like bars of iron. (Job 40:15-18)
Marginal notes in most Bibles speculate that Behemoth was probably an elephant or a hippopotamus, but those animals have tails like ropes. Behemoth had a "tail like a cedar" Any animal with a tail as huge and strong as a cedar tree is probably a dinosaur.
NO PROBLEM: JOB IS NO DOUBT DESCRIBING A DINOSAUR TYPE ANIMAL; CREATED WITH MANKIND, BUT HAS NOW BECOME EXTINCT - Keith Hunt
Also, Job 40:19-24. says this giant, difficult-to-capture animal was not alarmed by a raging river. If the writer of Job knew of a dinosaur, then the evolution position is wrong, and man saw dinosaurs.
AS LIKE THE TALES OF FIRE-BELCHING DRAGONS, THERE WERE CREATURES WITH MANKIND THAT WE COULD WELL CLASSIFY AS DINOSAUR CREATURES; THEY BECAME EXTINCT; OBVIOUSLY THE CREATURE JOB DESCRIBES AIN'T WITH US TODAY. SOME DINOSAUR TYPE CREATURES MADE WHEN MAN WAS MADE, DOES NOT NULLIFY A WORLD OF DINOSAURS BEFORE THE EARTH BECAME "WITHOUT FORM AND VOID" AND COVERED WITH WATER - GENESIS 1:2. - Keith Hunt
The next chapter of Job describes another huge, fierce animal, a sea monster named Leviathan.3 It was not a whale or crocodile, because the Hebrew language had other words to describe such animals. Leviathan may be a plesiosaur (PLEE see uh sore), a large seagoing reptile that evolutionists say became extinct 60 million years before man evolved.
AGAIN, GOD CREATED DINOSAUR SEA MONSTERS WITH MAN; THEY ALSO HAVE BECOME EXTINCT SINCE JOB WROTE HIS BOOK. MANY ANIMALS HAVE BECOME EXTINCT OVER THE THOUSANDS OF YEARS SINCE MANKIND HAS BEEN ON EARTH; PEOPLE TODAY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT CERTAIN ANIMALS BECOMING EXTINCT, IF NOT SOMEHOW PROTECTED FROM THE DESTRUCTIVE HAND OF MAN - Keith Hunt
Figure 180: Probably Not a Plesiosaur. This 32-foot-long "monster," caught by a Japanese fishing ship off the-coast of New Zealand in 1977, was unfortunately thrown overboard shortly after this picture was taken. The animal made front-page news for weeks in Japan. Several Japanese scientists felt that it was a plesiosaur, and a Japanese postage stamp seemed to commemorate the discovery of the first modern plesiosaur. In the 6th edition (1995) of this book, this animal was incorrectly labeled as a "possible plesiosaur." Later, after reading English translations of opinions of other Japanese scientists and seeing similar pictures of decaying basking sharks, it seems more likely that this was a large basking shark.4 Decay patterns near the shark's head give the appearance of a neck. My apologies for the error.
For the past three centuries, reports have come from the Congo in western Africa that dinosaurs exist in remote swamps. Eyewitness stories are often from educated people who can quickly describe dinosaurs. Two expeditions to the Congo, led by biologist Dr. Roy Mackal of the University of Chicago, never saw dinosaurs, but interviewed many of these witnesses and concluded that their reports were about dinosaurs and were apparently true.5 If any of these accounts are correct, man and dinosaurs were contemporaries.
AGAIN NO PROBLEM; GOD CAN MAKE DINOSAUR CREATURES AT ANY TIME IN HISTORY OF THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE. AS WE HAVE SEEN THE BOOK OF JOB TELLS US ABOUT TWO SUCH CREATURES; BUT THEY DO NOT EXIST TODAY, THEY BECAME EXTINCT. THIS DOES NOT ELIMINATE A WORLD BEFORE MAN WAS CREATED THAT WAS INHABITED BY DINOSAUR CREATURES OF ALL TYPES; A WORLD THAT THE COVERING CHERUBIM [WHO BECAME SATAN THE DEVIL] WAS GIVEN AUTHORITY OVER. AS OTHER STUDIES ON THIS WEBSITE SHOW; HE WANTED GOD'S THRONE; HE TOOK 1/3 OF THE ANGELS WITH HIM IN REBELLION; THERE WAS WAR IN THE HEAVENS; THIS EARTH WAS DESTROYED [THE SURFACE WAS] AND THE AGE OF THE WORLDWIDE DINOSAURS CAME TO AN END - Keith Hunt
Consider the many dragon legends. Most ancient cultures have stories or artwork of dragons that strongly resemble dinosaurs.6
AH I'VE ALREADY STATED THAT FACT - Keith Hunt
The World Book Encyclopedia states that: The dragons of legend are strangely like actual creatures that have lived in the past. They are much like the great reptiles [dinosaurs] which inhabited the earth long before man is supposed to have appeared on earth. Dragons were generally evil and destructive. Every country had them in its mythology.7 The simplest and most obvious explanation for so many common descriptions of dragons from around the world is that man once knew the dinosaurs.
What caused the extinction of dinosaurs? Primarily, the flood. Because dinosaur bones are found among other fossils, dinosaurs must have been living when the flood began. Dozens of other dinosaur extinction theories exist, but all have recognized problems. [See pages 116-117.]
YES INDEED, THE FLOOD!! BUT NOT NOAH'S FLOOD, BUT THE FLOOD OF GENESIS 1:2. - Keith Hunt
Most of the food chain was buried in the flood. Therefore, many large dinosaurs that survived the flood probably had difficulty feeding themselves and became extinct.
THIS THEOLOGY OF DINOSAURS LIVING THROUGH NOAH'S FLOOD CONTRADICTS THE TEACHING OF NOAH'S FLOOD, AS BROWN AND OTHERS TEACH IT [HUMMM…MAYBE BROWN DOES NOT] - THAT ALL LIVING THINGS ON EARTH DIED IN THE WORLD-WIDE [AS TAUGHT] FLOOD AT NOAH'S TIME BUT THOSE ON THE ARK. WITH THIS TEACHING NO DINOSAURS SURVIVED NOAH'S FLOOD TO DIE OF STARVATION AFTERWARDS - Keith Hunt
Were dinosaurs on the Ark? Yes. God told Noah to put representatives of every kind of land animal on the Ark. (Some dinosaurs were semiaquatic and could have survived outside the Ark.)
THE WHOLE TRUTH ABOUT WHAT "FUNDAMENTAL CREATIONISTS" TEACH CONCERNING NOAH'S ARK AND THE FLOOD, IS SHOWN TO BE FALSE IN THE IN-DEPTH STUDIES ON THIS WEBSITE CALLED "NOAH'S FLOOD WAS NOT UNIVERSAL" - Keith Hunt
But why put adult dinosaurs on the Ark? Young dinosaurs would take up less room, eat less, and be easier to manage. The purpose for having animals on board was so they could reproduce after the flood and repopulate the earth. Young dinosaurs would have more potential for reproduction than old dinosaurs.
DINOSAURS WERE SIMPLY NOT ON NOAH'S ARK PERIOD - SEE THE STUDIES I'VE MENTIONED, PROVING THE TRUTH ABOUT NOAH'S FLOOD, AND WHEN THERE WAS INDEED A WORLD-WIDE FLOOD - Keith Hunt
Certain bones in dinosaur bodies show annual growth rings, as trees do. Dinosaurs, early in life and late in life, grew at very slow rates. During mid-life, they went through huge growth spurts.8 Therefore, during the year dinosaurs were on the Ark, juveniles probably weighed less than 60 pounds. (A 2-year-old T. Rex weighed 66 pounds. The largest known T. Rex lived to the age of 28 years.9 Dinosaurs did not become large because they lived long lives.)
THIS WHOLE TEACHING FROM PROTESTANT FUNDAMENTALISTS OF NO DINOSAUR AGE; A WORLD-WIDE FLOOD AT THE TIME OF NOAH, IS ALL WRONG THEOLOGY. THERE WAS A WORLD-WIDE FLOOD FOR SURE, BUT BROWN AND OTHERS HAVE IT IN THE WRONG FRAME OF THE HISTORY OF THIS EARTH. REMEMBER TO STUDY THE STUDIES CALLED "NOAH'S FLOOD WAS NOT UNIVERSAL" ON THIS WEBSITE.
THERE WAS INDEED AN AGE OF DINOSAURS ON THIS EARTH, THAT BECAME EXTINCT VIA A WORLD-WIDE DESTRUCTION AND FLOOD. THERE WERE DINOSAUR CREATURES MADE WITH MAN, THAT EVENTUALLY BECAME EXTINCT - THE BOOK OF JOB MENTIONING TWO OF THEM. FIRE-THROWING DRAGONS OF HISTORY BEING ANOTHER TYPE OF DINOSAUR - Keith Hunt
