A major stumbling block for people when they try to make sense of the Bible and science is the reality of dinosaurs.Because of word "dinosaur", a term coined in 1841 by Sir Richard Owen, a British anatomist, is not found in the Bible many people assume that means dinosaurs aren't mentioned in the Bible. Not only are they mentioned, they are spoken of in a matter-of-fact fashion. The Hebrew word tannin -- meaning dragon -- is used many times, while two creatures mentioned in Job 40 and 41 ("behemoth" and "leviathan") are clearly some type of huge, extinct creature closely resembling dinosaurs. Ironically, evolutionary scientists sometimes use the word behemoth in describing large dinosaurs.The bones of these mysterious creatures are fossilized all over the world -- from fierce, gigantic crocodile-like beasts, to the famous T-Rex. Evolutionists tell us that dinosaurs ruled the world for some 160 million years and then died-out 65 million years ago, probably the result of an asteroid slamming into the Earth.The Bible, though, tells us that God made the land animals on Day Six, the same day He made man. This account couldn't be more opposite from the evolutionary view.So who's right?Well, it's important to remember that creationists look at the same evidence evolutionists study. They just come to different conclusions. If evolution is true, then Genesis really is a collection of myths. This seriously undermines the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for if man is a direct, biological descendant of the fearsome dinosaurs, then Paul's inspired message in I Corinthians 15:39 is wrong: "All flesh is not the same flesh; but one kind of flesh is of men, and another flesh of beasts, andanother of fish, and another of birds".You see, the Bible tells us plainly that God created a perfect world, but it was marred by Adam's sin. While evolution says that man came from death, the Bible says that death came fromMorris, John D. is the author of 'What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs?
