Dinosaurs & the Bible… by orchardblog

Here’s a question that Colleen posted on the blog:

If dinosaurs are billions of years old how does that fit in with creation? I understand that animals were created before man, but there wasn’t billions of years between the creation of animals to the creation of Adam, right? I have heard that dinosaurs are possibly addressed in the bible but where?

Great question. There are so many great resources that would probably be a lot more helpful than my comments on this.

Obviously, the word “dinosaur” doesn’t appear in the Bible, but there are words that people have theologians and brainy Bible people leaning towards the idea that perhaps dinosaurs were mentioned under the name “dragon”. Here are a few scriptures where the word “dragon” or “dragons” is us
Deuteronomy 32:33; Job 30:29; Psalms 44:19; Psalms 74:13; Psalms 148:7
Isaiah 13:22, 34:13, 35:7, 43:20; Jeremiah 9:11, 10:22, 14:6, 49:33, 51:37; Micah 1:8; Malachi 1:3

There are some interesting uses in these verses. What’s interesting to me is that there isn’t much evidence of “dragons”, but there is tons of evidence pointing towards the existence of dinosaurs. So in my simplified way of thinking, it would totally make sense to me that dinosaurs were indeed a part of the landscape at some point many years ago.

Here is a link that might help point you in the right direction. (Hugh Ross is one of the best Christian/scientific researchers I know of.

Reasons.org – this is Hugh Ross’ website which attempts to answer a lot of questions regarding Creationism VS. Evolutionism. He also has some good links to discussions on the age of the earth.

Check out this link.

I know that I haven’t answered your question, but there’s something to point you in the right direction for now. Does anyone else have any thoughts?
