Hey, two people in the waiting room of the docters office were debating whether or not the dinosuars were mentiond in the bible. One says no the other says yes. Are the Dinos mentioned in the bible?

No they are not,  a lot of people try to make out that Levithan is a dino, but that is just wishful thinking on the part of Creationists.  Just like the divinity of the Book of Job, the "Dinos in the Bible" question evaporates in the light of enquiry. yes.gif

Didn't have to, you have used that arguement so many times, it was a foregone conclusion!  yes.gif

I have not now, nor ever used the Leviathian as an arguement for dinosaurs in the Bible. Dragons maybe, dinosaurs, no. Wrong person, or very bad assumption.

How about sharing some passages that specifically mention dinosaurs in the Bible instead of bickering?

I'm sure there are no cut-and-dry dinosaur passages.. "And so Moses rode the Brachiosaur into Egypt.."

Embrace the impossible.

I would like to see a passage from the bible mentioning dinosaurs or something leaning towards dinosaurs even. As for leviathan being a dinosaur, thats just absurd no.gif

I thought it was the triceritops?  tongue.gif

I think you were right about the leviaton Mako. That may have been a dinosaur to them. But it breathed fire.  yes.gif

Since 'dinosaur' is a modern word, and didn't exist in any of the ancient laguages in which the Bible was written, then obviously there is no mention of dinosaur per se.

However, some people will argue that certain other words should - or could - be translated as 'dinosaur'.   But in no case is 'dinosaur' the only possible interpretation.

Isn't Leviathan an underwater creature?  Like a whale (the most common understanding of Leviathan).

Anyway, I don't think dinosaurs are specifically mentioned though.  In the scheme of things, they aren't really that important to the themes of the Bible.

You mean God never spoke unto Josiah and said "Lo!  Because I have caused the dinosaurs to become extinct 65 million years ago, so shall Judah rule the land that I promised unto Moses"?  tongue.gif

Ah but to the Creationists, they are very important!  If they leave them out of their little story, people will laugh at them, so they have to explain why there are no longer any dinosaurs.  That is the only reason some Christians even mention them.  Otherwise, the normal average Christian reacts to dinos in the same way as any other person.  Usually with the same enthusiasm as that little boy in Jurrasic Park 1.  yes.gif
