What About Dinosaurs?
Did all the dinosaurs die 65 million years ago?
Seven Facts About Dinosaurs:
1. God created the dinosaurs.
"For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is,..." Exodus 20:11
As far as our physical universe, that doesn't leave out anything.
2. Dinosaurs were on Noah's Ark.
Dinosaurs are reptiles. Reptiles keep growing as long as they live. Man lived an average of 912 years before Noah's Flood. Can you imagine how big some of the lizards got? God wouldn't put the biggest and oldest ones He could find on there, He would take some of the smaller ones. The biggest dinosaur eggs they have ever found were a little bit bigger than a football. As far as we know, all the dinosaurs started out small, then grew up.
Besides that, Noah's Ark was pretty big.
According to the Bible dimentions it was 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high, with three floors on it. That's like one and a half football fields long.
3. Dinosaurs are described in the Bible after the flood.
See Job 40:15-24
4. After Noah's Flood, dinosaurs used to be called "dragons," until they invented the word dinosaur in 1841.
There are thousands of legends of people seeing and killing dragons.
See Job 41:1-34; Psalm 104:25-26; 74:13-14; Isaiah 14:29, 27:1-2, 30:6
5. Before Noah's Flood, all the animals ate plants (so did humans).
29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. Genesis 1:29-30
6. Dinosaurs and people have lived together.
In Nurluc, France they renamed their city because of a creature they killed that was bigger than an ox and had three horns coming out of its head.
Ica Stone, found in the Ica valley in Peru. The people lived there about 3,000 years ago. How did they know what dinosaurs looked like?

7. Some dinosaurs may still be alive.
In Africa there is a creature living in the Likouala swamp the natives call "Mokele Membe," which means "river blocker."
What about Loch Ness?

Some other sightings are "Ogopogo" the Lake Okanogan monster in British Columbia; "Caddy" the Cadboro Bay monster in Vancouver; the English Channel sea serpent; "Bessie," or "Lemy," the Lake Erie monster; "Champ" from Lake Champlain between New York and Vermont, etc.

There are actually over 200 places around the world reporting dinosaur-like creatures still alive.
Some people are skeptical when they hear that some dinosaurs might still be alive. But if I believed God created the dinosaurs about 6,000 years ago, and then they went through Noah's Flood, if someone told me there were no dinosaurs still alive anywhere, I would be skeptical of that.
I have an audio presentation about dinosaurs available for download on this site. I also have a dinosaur DVD listed in our catelog. Check it out.
