Who Made Dinosaurs??? Did Dinosaurs ever exist? If they did exist, does the Bible talk about them? Do Dinosaurs disprove the accuracy of the Bible? Or, do Dinosaurs confirm the integrity of the Bible? While this lesson is about Dinosaurs it is about whether or not we can trust the Bible!
Did Dinosaurs Ever Exist? 1822 AD—Dr. Gideon Mantell, a British country doctor, and his wife discovered large fossilized teeth in a rock quarry in Great Britain. In 1825 he named the extinct animal Iguanodon! In 1842, Richard Owen, the leading British anatomist, named them “dinosaur,” meaning “fearfully great lizards” or “terribly great lizards.”
Dinosaur fossils – found on all 7 continents from Arctic to Antarctica! 300 discovered on Colorado/Utah border at Dinosaur National Monument! 10,000 dinosaur bones found in another place in Utah! Dinosaur Graveyards – Large collection of bones found in many places across the earth! What is the explanation?
Who Made Dinosaurs??? Evolutionists believe accidents of nature produced dinosaurs 165 million years ago! The Bible says that God created Dinosaurs (Gen. 1:24,25; EX. 20:11). If God did create Dinosaurs, why doesn’t the Bible talk about them? Job 40:15-24 – This probably describes the dinosaur—remember the name “dinosaur” not given until 1842!
Did Dinosaurs and Humans Exist at the same time? Evolutionists say dinosaurs became extinct long before humans existed! The Bible says they existed together! What is the Evidence? Job 40:15-24—The writer of Job knew what a dinosaur looked like even after the flood of Noah’s day! Evidence from scientific artifacts!
A platform in the Paluxy River bed near Glen Rose, Texas has been exposed by consulting geologist, Dr. Don Patton and volunteer workers, revealing three dramatic trails of dinosaur tracks. The primary trail pictured below consists of 136 consecutive tracks, extending over 400 feet.
A series of 14 human footprints with at least 134 dinosaur tracks in the bed of the Paluxy River, near Glen Rose, Texas.
This fossil footprint (-3B) is in the bed of the Paluxy River near Glen Rose, Texas. It is one of a 14 track sequence called the Taylor Trail. The tracks are consistently 11.5" in length with consistently alternating rights and lefts. They are among and, in this case, within dinosaur tracks.
This print is one of the most spectacular in the sequence. When examined carefully a right human foot print can be seen in compelling detail, almost completely within a dinosaur foot print. Click on this picture to highlight the details of these two amazing prints. (Click on photo for high resolution) highlight the details
outline of the dino track, then the outline of where the human stepped partially in the dino track.
An excellent example can be seen in the National Museum Of Cambodia in Phnom Pehn. He built the beautiful temple monastery Ta Prohm in honor of his mother, dedicating it in 1186. One of the animals enclosed in these circles is a stegosaurus.
What is the Explanation for Dinosaur Graveyards? Evolutionists try to explain with local floods! Does not explain! The worldwide flood of Noah’s day is the most logical answer (Gen. 7:19-21). How and When did dinosaurs become extinct? Flood did not destroy all dinosaurs! (Gen. 7:1-3, 7-9).
Dinosaurs Confirm the Accuracy of the Bible! Are We Willing to Accept the Evidence???
“We take the side of science in spite of the patent absurdity of some of its constructs, in spite of its failure to fulfill many of its extravagant promises of health and life, in spite of the tolerance of the scientific community for unsubstant- iated just-so stories, because we have a prior commitment to naturalism. It is not that the methods and institutions of science somehow compel us to accept a material explanation of the phenomenal world, but, on the contrary, that we are forced by our a priori adherence to
material causes to create an apparatus of investigation and a set of concepts that produce material explanations, no matter how counter-intuitive, no matter how mystifying to the uninitiated. Moreover, that materialism is absolute, for we cannot allow a Divine Foot in the door” --Richard Lewontin, Harvard Geneticist, The New York Review, January 9, 1997, quote from Reason & Revelation, April 2004, p. 35).
