15 15 1. Did dinosaurs once live on the earth? Yes

16 16 1. Did dinosaurs once live on the earth? Millions of years ago, long before there were any people, there were dinosaurs. Dinosaurs were one of several kinds of prehistoric reptiles that lived during the Mesozoic Era, the Age of Reptiles. ZoomDinosaurs.com ALL ABOUT DINOSAURS!

17 17 1. Did dinosaurs once live on the earth? The dinosaurs dominated the Earth for over 165 million years during the Mesozoic Era, but mysteriously went extinct 65 million years ago. Paleontologists study their fossil remains to learn about the amazing prehistoric world of dinosaurs. ZoomDinosaurs.com ZoomDinosaurs.com ALL ABOUT DINOSAURS!

18 18 1. Did dinosaurs once live on the earth? ZoomDinosaurs.com ALL ABOUT DINOSAURS!

19 19 2. When did the dinosaurs live?

20 20 2. When did the dinosaurs live? People did not coexist with the dinosaurs (except for the birds). Although the image of human cave dwellers hunting dinosaurs is well established in fiction, it is far from accurate. People didn't evolve until about 65 million years after the dinosaurs' extinction. Except for the birds, who are the sole surviving descendants of the dinosaurs, the dinosaurs and people are well separated in terms of geologic time. ZoomDinosaurs.comZoomDinosaurs.com ALL ABOUT DINOSAURS!

21 21 2. When did the dinosaurs live? Genesis 1:24 and 25 (New King James Version) 24 Then God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind; and it was so. 25 And God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

22 22 2. When did the dinosaurs live? Job 40:15 Look at the behemoth, which I made along with you…

23 23 2. When did the dinosaurs live? Job 40:15 Look at the behemoth, which I made along with you… Job 41:1 Can you pull in the leviathan with a fishhook or tie down his tongue with a rope?

24 24 2. When were dinosaurs found?

25 25 2. When were dinosaurs found? The story of their discovery began back in the 1820s, when Gideon Mantell, an English doctor, found some unusual teeth and bones in a quarry. Dr Mantell realized there was something very different about these animal remains, and believed that he had found an entirely new group of reptiles.

26 26 2. When were dinosaurs found? By 1841, about nine types of these different reptiles had been uncovered, including two called Megalosaurus and Iguanodon.

27 27 2. When were dinosaurs found? At this time, a famous British scientist (and creationist), Dr Richard Owen, coined the name Dinosauria, meaning terrible lizard, for this is what the huge bones made him think of.

28 28 3. What makes dinosaurs different?

29 29 3. What makes dinosaurs different? Other than the huge size of some dinosaurs, the major feature that really distinguishes dinosaurs from other reptiles (such as crocodiles) is the position of their limbs. Dinosaurs had posture that was fully erect, similar to that in mammals.

30 30 3. What makes dinosaurs different? Most other reptiles have limbs in a sprawling position. For instance, compare the way a crocodile walks with that of a cow. Dinosaurs would have moved like a cow, with the limbs supporting the body from beneath. Crocodiles waddle, as their limbs project sideways from their body.

31 31 4. How big were dinosaurs?

32 32 4. How big were dinosaurs? Some were as small as chickens, and others were even smaller. Of course, some dinosaurs were very large, weighing in at an estimated 80 tons and standing 40 feet high! The average size of a dinosaur, however, was probably about that of a small horse.

39 A photo of Puff the Magic Dragon, one of the "dinosaur" petroglyphs near Middle Mesa at the Wupatki National Park in Arizona. It appears to be a depiction of a fire-breathing dinosaur. Though there is no certain way to date such petroglyphs, it is believed to be at least several hundred years old.

40 A picture of a dinosaur fighting a mammoth from the book Buried Alive by Dr. Jack Cuozzo. It was taken by the author in the Bernifal Cave, one of the caverns in France that is renowned for Neanderthal artifacts.

41 This picture was drawn by North American Anasazi Indians that lived in the area that has now become Utah approximately 150 B.C A.D. The brown- ish film which has hardened over the picture, along with the pitting and weathering, attests to its age.

42 42 Inca Ceremonial Burial stones, believed to be from the Nasca culture. Over 1100 were found in the 1930's by Dr. Javier Cabrera.

43 Here is a creature we know today as the triceratops. Is it possible that this was made by someone who actually saw a dinosaur?

44 44 5. What is the evidence that dinosaurs once lived on the earth? We find their bones and fossils all over the world. We find drawings of dinosaurs in caves all over the world. Archaeologists and historians find sculptures of dinosaurs all over the world.

50 An artifact from Tiwanaku, an important Pre- Columbian archaeological site in Bolivia. Tiwanaku is recognized by Andean scholars as one of the most important precursors to the Inca Empire. The sculptor depicted a dinosaur- like creature at least 800 years before European scientists discovered dinosaurs.

51 Some of the beautiful French chateaus built at the close of the Middle Ages and early 1500's have dramatic dragon illustrations carved into their walls, ceilings, and furniture.

54 Deep in the jungles of Cambodia are ornate temples and palaces from the Khmer civilization. One such temple, Ta Prohm, abounds with stone statues and reliefs.

55 Western science only began assembling dinosaurs skeletons in the past two centuries. (Pictures are courtesy of Don Patton.)

56 56 5. What is the evidence that dinosaurs once lived on the earth? We find their bones and fossils all over the world. We find drawings of dinosaurs in caves all over the world.

57 57 5. What is the evidence that dinosaurs once lived on the earth? there were rumors of a huge animal seen in the African Congo. The description fit that of a sauropod dinosaur.

58 58 5. What is the evidence that dinosaurs once lived on the earth? there were rumors of a huge animal seen in the African Congo. The description fit that of a sauropod dinosaur. 1980s - a team led by an evolutionary scientist traveled to the area to see if they could photograph the animal. Team members claimed to have seen it, recorded its roar, but didnt get a picture.

64 64 5. What is the evidence that dinosaurs once lived on the earth? In the fifth century before Christ, the famous Greek historian, Herodotus, wrote about the winged serpents of Arabia. Similar reports come from Egypt, Ethiopia and India.

65 European reports of flying serpents living in Egypt persist through the 1600's. The Italian naturalist Prosper Alpin wrote a fascinating natural history of Egypt in the 1580's. All is precisely like modern fossil reconstructions. A French wooden image, dating from the 16th century, displays remarkable features of a pterosaur.

66 66 5. What is the evidence that dinosaurs once lived on the earth? In the fifth century BC, the famous Greek historian, Herodotus, wrote about the winged serpents of Arabia. Similar reports come from Ethiopia and India. Their descriptions are similar to what we know about pterodactyls.

69 69 6. What happened to them?

70 70 6. What happened to them? Evolutionists claim an asteroid impact 65 million years ago changed the climate so dramatically that the dinosaurs became extinct.

71 71 6. What happened to them? The dinosaurs went extinct about 65 million years ago, at the end of the Cretaceous period, which was a time of high volcanic and tectonic activity. There are a lot of theories why the extinction occurred. The most widely accepted theory is that an asteroid impact caused major climactic changes to which the dinosaurs couldn't adapt. ZoomDinosaurs.com ALL ABOUT DINOSAURS!

72 72 Researchers believe they have discovered the world's biggest crater off the coast of India which they think may be responsible for the extinction of dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

73 73 Mr. Chatterjee believes the impact of an asteroid or comet of this size would have vaporized the Earth's crust on collision, killing most life and leaving ultra-hot mantle material to well up in its place.

74 74 6. What happened to them? Evolutionists claim an asteroid impact 65 million years ago changed the climate so dramatically that the dinosaurs became extinct. Biblical creationists believe dinosaurs became extinct for the same reasons species become extinct today.

75 75 6. What happened to them? Evolutionists claim an asteroid impact 65 million years ago changed the climate so dramatically that the dinosaurs became extinct.
