DinosaursWhen dinosaur bones were first found they thought that they belongedto giant lizards. The word “dinosaur” means “terrible lizard”. The largerdinosaurs must have seemed to be terrible to the smaller animals.
Some ofthe first dinosaurs were only about as big as a small dog. That is how bigthe horses of that time were. Over the years, as the dinosaurs aged, theygrew to be much more large in size. The sizes of dinosaurs ranged greatly,all the way from two feet long to one hundred and fifty feet long. Theyweighed as much as fifty tons, which is seven African Bull Elephants. Wefirst discovered the fossils and bones shortly under the surface of theEarth.Order now
After scientists got more into the study they started to dig deeperdown. The fossils get so deep because of the years of rocks and dirt thatwere piled up on it. Some also get buried if a dinosaur were to die nextto a river, and over the years the river probably changed courses a little,so therefore the bones would be covered up. They would actually be in thebank of the river. Evolutionistic ViewThe Evolutionary theory states that everything evolved over millionsof years.
Evolutionists say that dinosaurs came from six million yearsback. They also say that the Earth is four to six billion years old. Theysay that fifty million years ago there was horses no bigger than dogs, andbirds as tall as man, three hundred million years ago giant dragon fliesbuzzed around in the large forests, six million years ago small animals,called trilobites, lived in the sea and were rulers of the world. Evolutionists think that the world started off with just plants on it, thencame many- legged animals from the sea (walking fish) that took over.
Theyfeel that a certain kind of fish evolved into the first four-footedanimals. After millions of years those animals tuned into dinosaurs. Thatis how dinosaurs got started. Then finally the dinosaurs died off andlittle, furry, four-legged creatures appeared. These animals were calledmammals, which then took over the world.
Then those mammals evolved intoman. The Evolutionists believe, very strongly, that dinosaurs were extinctmillions of years before there were even any people to walk the Earth. Why did dinosaurs become extinct? The Evolutionists had a hard time trying to explain why dinosaursbecame extinct. They had over fifty-five different theories that wouldjust “come and go”. Out of all of those explanations not one of them was asatisfactory one.
A theory that works for large animals would not work forsmall animals, and vise-versa. Whatever happened, Evolutionists agree thatit must have been a catastrophe on a world-wide scale. Christians View”God created all the animals, including the first dinosaurs” – Genesis1:20-25. “He made everything in the entire universe – people, stars,planets, and all that there is.
” – Exodus 20:11, John 1:3. Those are notthe exact words of those verses, but it is a summary. What that says thereis that God created everything on Earth and that includes Earth itself,therefore dinosaurs had to have been created by God, which proves evolutionwrong. Dinosaurs are even mentioned in the Bible, of course not by the term”dinosaur”.
It uses the ancient name “behemoth”. The Bible bestdescription of a dinosaur is in Job 41:15-24. Job is a very old book,probably written around 2000 B. C.
Here God describes one of the largerdinosaurs. It is said to be describing a Brachiosaurus. It is a giantplant eating animal with strong bones. It is not afraid of anything. InJob this dinosaur is compared to the ancient ceder.
“Look at the behemoth which I made along with you andwhich feeds on grass like an ox. What strength he hasin his loins, what power in the muscles of his belly!His tail sways like a ceder; the sinews of his thighsare close-knit. His bones are tubes among the worksof God, yet his maker can approach him with His sword. The hills bring them their produce, and all the wildanimals play nearby. Under the lotus plant he lies.
. . “-Job 41:15-24 There are tracks in Texas that are embedded in hard rock that show thatdinosaurs and man walked at the same time. There is one human track andone dinosaur track seventeen inches apart. I think that shows the thought”that dinosaur and man never saw each other” is wrong. ComparisonFrom all the facts here I believe that the Christian theory iscorrect.
The Evolutionists couldn’t find a reason for the disappearance ofthe dinosaurs, and I think that the flood wiped all but the one that wereon the Ark. After the flood the dinosaurs could not handle the conditions,so they all died off. The theory of the canopy collapsing, I believe is whydinosaurs are gone. The atmosphere after the flood was too harsh and hot. Also there was a big air pressure release after the flood.
After doing myresearch, I do not understand how Evolutionists believe what they do. ContrastIn Evolution the beginning of time was started by accident. Theplanets just popped into place. That opposes the Christian theory.
Christians feel that God place all of the planets in a specific place. Creation was a matter of time. It took six days for the universe to becreated. According to Evolution it just happened instantly. You can readanything in Genesis 1 and you will contradict the Evolutionary theory.
SupportWe as Christians must not believe in Evolution because it iscompletely against what the Bible teaches. Some Christians believe inEvolution, but I do not understand how they can. It says right in Genesis1 that it took God six days to create the world, not millions of years. Evolutionists says that we don’t even get in touch with dinosaurs, howcan’t we? Adam named all of the animals. In my research I found there arethree things we need to know about dinosaurs. 1) They did not evolve.
2) They fit perfectly in with the Bible’s record of history. Godcreated them and they are even in the Bible. 3) The Bible explains why they became extinct- the Flood.
