    The word Dinosaur (meaning big lizard) does not appear in the bible at all. There is no doubt such creatures existed and were necessary for the reasons I suggested on another question. I would not think they were anything like the Stephen Spielberg representations. Yes, they existed before Adam and Eve.

    The Bible does talk about Leviathan and Behemoth which appear to be the crocodile and the hippopotamus. The principle subject of the bible is about how God dealt with his rebellious children and how he created prophet dramas with the faithful ones who became his friends. These dramas are now being used to train the great crowd of 21st Century potential Armageddon survivors

    Some scientists believe Dinosaurs became extinct because of a meteor collision with earth. That does not conflict with bible knowledge though it might conflict with some of the outlandish theories of evolution.

    Man and domestic animals were much more recent creations.

    Almost every tribe and race on earth has a distinctive flood legend in its traditions. I was very struck by the similarity of belief between the Aborigine and the Navajo Indians.

    The figure 8 is part of the Mandarin character for flood and the book of Job indicates the Job was an Oriental.

    It is known that some 40 million animals were buried in the Ice tundra of North America and Canada. Many of these were Mammoths with their flesh intact and tropical vegetation in their mouths and stomachs.

    The big problem here is the naive fundamentalist belief that the earth was created in 6 literal 24 days whereas modern bible students known for over 100 years that we still have over 1,000 years of the seventh day of Gods rest to complete.

    Hope that answers your questions




    Assuming a date of Creation about 6,000 years ago, Adam and Eve co-existed with dinosaurs. According to Creationists dinosaurs were wiped out in the Flood, though why they were not in the Ark is hard to explain. I suggest you visit the site https://www.answersingenesis.com to try to understand the creationist viewpoint.
    There was only one reptile in the garden of Eden.

    It is, when all yours is not even sensible drivel.
    Dino's existed with Adam. In the book of Job, who existed with Adam before the flood, (as evidenced in the book, Satan is free to walk among the earth and still in council with God), it describes Behemoth as a dinosaur: "...his tail is like a cedar...bones as strong as pieces of brass...his bones are like bars of iron...he is chief of the ways of God...he drinks up a river...trusted to draw up Jordan in his mouth."
    The reptiles are descendents of the dino's. Just as the dog is descendent of the wolf.

    Freedomfighter: Why do people seem to come to the conclusion that Job is talking about a hippo or a crocodile? Job:40:18-21 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.This is obviously a type of dragon or dinosaur. When has anyone ever seen smoke or fire come from a hippo or a croc!

    Excellent point CB. I had trouble with the "sparks" shooting out. But then I discovered that there is a lizard, or salamader, can't remember which, that shoots salt particles out of his mouth and nostrils that "sparkle". It isn't hard to believe then an ancestor of his had the capability to shoot "fire and smoke".
    This should be interesting :)

    I'm curious myself as to what the bible believers have to say about the dinosaurs we know about. Were they real or did someone create a bunch of bones to make it appear dinosaurs roamed the earth at some point?

    Did Adam and Eve live with the dinosaurs? Or did they exist before Adam and Eve? Or maybe after Adam and Eve?

    Per your instructions. "SO!"

    I think you should stick to reading the bible more closely.

    LMAO. You're so funny. You've just mad my day, Sadie.

    Hi Sadie, I haven't the foggiest.  But I like your name though.

    Who are mere men that they should think to restrain Gods idea of time, to their fraction of fractions of but a moment in eternity. which in itself is but an idea, a place in God!   When a trillion million years is but a thought in God, what is 6000 years, by the measure of men, but a measure of his own feeble  limitations!  Such declarations are Ludicrous, the mentality, closed minds most fundamental!   What is a year of man to the year of God, when God can create eternity in but a blink of a thought.  The Time Sphere, Eterenity , was but one of Gods greatest ideas. for in it He seeded His idea of Existence containing all universes, all his evolving ideas of forms.


    Of these there were many each in their own uniqueness, each in their own time, until the perfect form was perfected in the advent of MAN.  This creature could achieve the consciousness of Himself by the Good Spirit contained within the form.  It was by this Good alone men may be reborn in the Image of God.   For God is not in the image man only as man is become the image of GOOD, which is God.  Therefore evidence of God is time itself for it contains all the Good ideas of Himself.     Let them see it who can, let any hear it who can, let all who are able receive it who can.  Amen
