Question Evolution part 2 (For part 1)

ISSUE: DID DINOSAURS EXIST MILLIONS AND MILLIONS OF YEARS BEFORE HUMANS?

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE: NO.
1. Not millions and millions of years ago.
2. But Dinosaurs maybe mentioned in the bible.

1. Not millions and millions of years ago

- There are problems with dating dinosaur bones to 65 millions years (to be discussed in a later blog entry)
- According to the bible land animals and man were created on day 6 of Creation.
- Sin brought death into the world, so nothing could have died before Adam sinned (therefore no bones, fossils).
- A global flood could have wiped out animals that were not on the ark, decedents of dinosaurs were on the ark
- How and why they are no longer among us isn't documented, but there are theories

2. Dinosaurs maybe mentioned in the bible.

There are 3 names of animals we see in the bible that could have been dinosaurs (of course the word dinosaur wasn't invented at the time of the old testament).

“Dinosaur” Names, Then and Now
Name and date first written in the BibleScientific Name (best estimate) and date the name appeared
tanniyn (dragon)before 1400 BCdinosaur1841 AD
behemothbefore 1400 BCbrachiosaurus1903 AD
Leviathanbefore 1400 BCkronosaurus1901 AD



Behemoth has the following attributes according to Job 40:15-24
  • It “eats grass like an ox.”
  • It “moves his tail like a cedar.” (In Hebrew, this literally reads, “he lets hang his tail like a cedar.”)
  • Its “bones are like beams of bronze,
    His ribs like bars of iron.”
  • “He is the first of the ways of God.”
  • “He lies under the lotus trees,
    In a covert of reeds and marsh.”
Leviathan has the following attributes according to Job chapter 41, Psalm 104:25,26 and Isaiah 27:1. This is only a partial listing—just enough to make the point.
  • “No one is so fierce that he would dare stir him up.”
  • “Who can open the doors of his face, with his terrible teeth all around?”
  • “His rows of scales are his pride, shut up tightly as with a seal; one is so near another that no air can come between them; they are joined one to another, they stick together and cannot be parted.”
  • “His sneezings flash forth light, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning. Out of his mouth go burning lights; sparks of fire shoot out. Smoke goes out of his nostrils, as from a boiling pot and burning rushes. His breath kindles coals, and a flame goes out of his mouth.”
  • “Though the sword reaches him, it cannot avail; nor does spear, dart, or javelin. He regards iron as straw, and bronze as rotten wood. The arrow cannot make him flee; slingstones become like stubble to him. Darts are regarded as straw; he laughs at the threat of javelins.”
  • “On earth there is nothing like him, which is made without fear.”
  • Leviathan “played” in the “great and wide sea” (a paraphrase of Psalm 104 verses 25 and 26—get the exact sense by reading them yourself).
  • Leviathan is a “reptile [a] that is in the sea.” (Isaiah 27:1)
MY THOUGHTS
- the bible is not just a spiritual book. It's also a history book. 
- Christians don't have to be afraid of claims that dinosaurs existed.
- We can question whether evidence of fossils being million or even billions of years old is accurate. 
- We can find out more so that we can always be ready to explain the faith we have.
