Christians are becoming more aware that dinosaurs are mentioned in the Bible. Of course, they are not called dinosaurs but leviathans. The description of them satisfies many that this description of a serpent with a huge tail to be dinosaurs. They were here at the same time as humans and were here until the flood when they were suddenly wiped out.

On Day Five of the creation week, God created great "whales" - according to the KJV version. The KJV translation was finished in 1611. At that time, petrified dinosaur bones had not been discovered until the middle to late 1700's. Therefore, the KJV translators had nothing to compare with the Hebrew word "tanniym" except a whale. The word "tanniym" means preternatural marine/land hideous monster, dragon or whale.  Preternatural means out of the natural. Renditions of dinosaurs shows they are animals that look quite out of the natural from animals with us today.

They were created on Day Five. Five is God's number for death. These animals were intended to some day die. Which they did in Noah's flood. A day of creation consisted of an evening and a day. In other words, Day Five was 24 hours long just as the other creation days were 24 hours long. It did not take millions of years for all this to take place. God spoke them into existence.

Job 41: 1; Ps 74: 14; Ps 104: 26; Isa 27: 1 mentions the leviathan.

There are books by Christian scientists to be found on this subject at such sites as www.CreationResearchInstitute.com and www.AnswersInGenesis.com.

Pictures of these petrified bones still embedded in rock show they died in water and were quickly entombed in mud that caused them to not be exposed to the elements which normally cause decomposition. Glen Rose, TX has found and photographed foot prints of dinosaur tracks with human tracks preserved in a layer below the dinosaur tracks. The dinosaur tracks should have been below the human tracks if they were extinct by the time humans evolved millions of years later.

Scientific Christians have written books that show that the earth is from 8,000 to 10,000 years old at the oldest, not millions of years.
God bless us all is my prayer.

Any scientist who genuinely believes the world is only 8000 years old deserves to be stripped of their degree.
We have RECORDED HISTORY that goes back further then that.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

There are no human foot prints in the Paluxy Riverbed, http://www.talkorigi...aqs/paluxy.html

These "scientific" Christians are anything but scientific.

References in the Bible of your dinosaurs don't even resemble dinosaurs.

The Creation Research Institute and Answers in Genesis are not run by scientists. They are not scientific organizations. They do not have any credible support from scientists, from any field, let alone fields which would be relevant to this topic. You're getting your information from highly, highly dubious sources.

Try to realize it's all within yourself / No-one else can make you change / And to see you're really only very small / And life flows on within you and without you. / We were talking about the love that's gone so cold and the people / Who gain the world and lose their soul / They don't know they can't see are you one of them? / When you've seen beyond yourself then you may find peace of mind / Is waiting there / And the time will come / when you see we're all one and life flows on within you and without you. ~ George Harrison

hell, OOPArts actually "prove" mankind is older even the recorded history, so is even worse for the Cretinists then orthodox history.

But these dinosaurs/Leviathans (Leviathi?) are supposed to have been living at the same time as Humans, aren't they? Like the one that swallowed Jonah. I think probably it'd most likely be either allegorical fables, of which the Bible is, as I'm sure people can agree, replete, or some other such as Crocodiles (which would have been something completely new to the Isrealites in Egypt) or whales, or perhaps Krakens.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

thwy'ee morw then likely misidentified mundane rtifacts and the od rock, but if genuine they blow the Creationist agenda into the wter.

As a minor note here, the plural of livyāṯān (anglicized as 'Leviathan') in Hebrew would be livyāṯānim.

Hehehe, I don't know why, but Christian creationism always gives me a good laugh.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "
