Recent discovery of dinosaur bones have revealed that some may have grown to a length of 130 feet and weighed nearly 100 tons. Many of these large dinosaur fossils indicate that these animals also had very long tails. In some ways, it’s kind of fortunate that these big guys have died out. It makes driving a lot safer. Can you imagine how much damage you could do if you hit one of these?
Most Paleontologists state matter of factly that dinosaurs died off about 60 million years ago, give or take a few million years. They will also say that dinosaurs and man never lived at the same time.
The Bible though is very clear that God made all the beasts of the earth on the sixth day of creation. (Gen 1:24) He told Job that He made the behemoth along with you. (40:15) He reasoned with Job to observe the creature and described him as having his strength in his hips, power in his stomach muscles, and that his tail moves like a cedar tree. (40:16,17) There are no familiar animals living today that fit such a description. Neither a rhino, hippo, nor elephant fits this description, especially concerning the tail. Cedar trees grow quite large with some having a girth as large as 40 feet and a height of 100 feet. That’s quite a tail!
If dinosaurs walked with Job, how is it that science teaches that man and dinos never lived together? How is it that they died off millions of years ago when Job probably lived only about 4,000 years ago and creation occurred about 6 to 7 thousand years ago?
To acknowledge that man lived with dinosaurs men might have to acknowledge that the Bible is true. If it is true, then creation might be true. If creation is true then God must exist. If God exists then man is answerable to Him. Like Job they would be forced to the conclusion, “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.” (Job 42:5,6)
