Dinosaurs in the Bible’s 6,000 Year Time Frame

One of the most common questions asked at my workshops and seminars are: “Where do the dinosaurs fit in the Biblical time frame?” Many Christians are misled by the evolutionary propaganda that dinosaurs are extinct for 65 million years. The Bible teaches that dinosaurs were created on day six with all the other land animals and lived at peace in Eden. All creatures were set up to eat fruits and vegetables, and so they did too. Not until after the fall and definitely after the flood did animals begin to kill and eat each other to survive. The dinosaurs, being cold-blooded reptiles, survived very well before the flood in the lush garden paradise. They grew gigantic because reptiles continue to grow as long as the food is available. The 100-year-old alligator is awesome!

We have fossils of other enormous creatures from the pre-flood world (dragonflies with a 51-inch wingspan, 12-inch cockroaches, 6-foot tall rabbits, giant sloth’s, etc.). When God told Noah about the coming flood, he told Noah to take two of each “kind” of land-dwelling, air-breathing animal on the ark, including each “kind” of a dinosaur. But weren’t they too big? NO! Dinosaurs hatch from eggs, and the largest dinosaur eggs are about the size of a football. So even the giant T-Rex was once the size of a dog soon after it hatched. So space for young ones on the Ark would not be a size problem. Each “kind” would represent great variety. For example, a pair of dogs would serve the whole dog kind including wolves, coyotes, dingoes, etc. Not two Great Danes, two Poodles, two Daschund, two Timber Wolves, two Chihuahua, two whatever. In summary, the dinosaurs were created at the same time as Adam, lived in the garden, many were destroyed in Noah’s flood, and those that came off the Ark became extinct quickly because of the post-flood conditions.

There are several pieces of evidence that men met dinosaurs in recent times. In a Bible Science Newsletter, a publication that ceased in the 1990s, there was an article documenting human contact with dinosaurs in 13th and 14th century Europe. Many civilizations have legends of “Dragons” that sound like dinosaurs. In the American west, the native peoples have a legend of a creature called the Thunderbird that until the 1950’s anthropologists studying these Native Americans scoffed at this legend as being a myth of folk tale. However, there were reports of cowboys in the early 1800s seeing this creature. In the mid-1950’s fossils were found of a flying reptile, now named Quetzalcoatlus that probably was the legendary Thunderbird. There is an animal living in central Africa called Mokele Mbembe whose description, by the native peoples, sounds like a dinosaur. Look it up on the web in Cryptozoology. I asked an evolutionist recently: “If we found a living dinosaur, wouldn’t Evolution be falsified?” He said: “Of course not we would just have another living fossil.” Evolutionists will never admit to their theory being in trouble. Living Fossil is an oxymoron. Fossils are dead stone pictures of what was ONCE living.

  1. There is another approach to all this. It is the belief that an all-powerful Creator God could create the world and the universe in any way that suited his good pleasure. The longer past of the Earth than a mere 6,000 years does not bother me. My faith is not weakened by a longer cosmological time scale. And, I do see the problems with taking everything in the Bible as literal.

    God could create the universe instantaneously or by a gradual or evolutionary way. What difference does that really make? Those who do not want to work at their faith will look for excuses and latch on to science and evolution. As well, what constitutes a day in the life of God – as when you point to the dinosaurs being created on the sixth day?


    1. You are correct that God could create in any way he choose, but he choose to do it in six days and tell us specifically the sequence and timing in Genesis. According to the text it was six literal days only thousands of years ago. As to why it matters there are many scientific arguments I could give you but all fall short because of the limitations of science. There are two theological reasons why it MUST be six days. You can’t have death before sin, as ALL Old Earth and theisttic evolution models do and remanai with a credible Gospel. Second God pronounced EVERYTHING VERY GOOD after he finished creating at the end of day six. Here is a detailed video explanation for: Did God create everything in six regular days? http://youtu.be/T0DsLjv9gYo
