DINOSAUR MYSTERY – SOLVED!

DID YOU KNOW:  The word ‘dinosaur’ was only made up in 1841, centuries after the Bible was written. ‘Dinosauria’ = (deinos) ‘terrible, powerful, wondrous’ + (sauros) ‘lizard or reptile’ in Greek. It was the name chosen by creationist, biologist and paleontologist, Richard Owen.

POP QUIZ:  So what were dinosaurs called before 1841? Answer.

*

*

*

THINK SPOT :  The King James Bible uses the word dragon or dragons more than 30 times. This has special significance, as the KJV was published in 1611 AD. Only 400 years ago, Bible translators were confident that their readers would know exactly what they were talking about:  real – and not mythical – creatures.

DINOSAURS – THE SHORT (AND BIBLICAL) STORY

Here’s the short story on dinosaurs as I understand it from the Bible, the history book of the universe. But don’t take my word for it. Check it out for yourself:

1.  God made dinosaurs as part of His ‘very good’ creation. Water dinosaurs (plesiosaurs) and flying dinosaurs (pterosaurs) would have been created on day 5 of creation week along with all the other sea creatures and flying creatures. Land dinosaurs were created on day 6 of creation week along with all the other animals that live on land, and just before mankind.dinosaur eating green plant
2.  Man lived with dinosaurs until they became extinct.
3.  Big teeth or not, according to Genesis, all dinosaurs originally would have eaten plants.
4.  After the Fall, when the deadly ‘sin virus’ entered creation, death, decay and disease was the result. Sadly, this included man and creatures turning on each other.
5.  Two of every KIND (or family) of dinosaurs went onto Noah’s Ark, more than likely teenagers. Why teen? They would have been smaller, eaten less, made less mess… unless, of course, they were like some of the teenagers that we are familiar with. :) And they would also have been in top breeding condition for years to come, once the Flood finished.

DID YOU KNOW:  Representatives of ALL land animals and birds were on the Ark, but the dove and the raven are the only ones specifically named in the Bible as being on the Ark.

6.  The rest of the dinosaurs – along with ALL other humans and animals not on the ark – would have perished during Noah’s Flood. The humans were all invited. Only 8 people accepted that invitation. Eight! So what would we expect to see around today as evidence of a worldwide flood? How about lots of water laying around some place? Did you know that according to official figures, the earth today is covered by 75% water?! If you haven’t thought about how massive our oceans are before, you may be shocked. Plus, as Ken Ham succinctly puts it, we would expect to find ‘billions of dead things, laid down by water, all over the earth’. So what do we find? Billions of dead things, laid down by water, all over the earth. They are called fossils. And we find them even in the middle of deserts and on the top of Mount Everest. Water is the essential ingredient to make a fossil. And fossils show evidence of extremely rapid burial, another essential ingredient to preserve soft tissue before it decays or is scavenged, which is why we don’t see too many fossils forming today. Here’s a fossil of an extinct marine ichthyosaur giving birth. It was buried so rapidly, you can clearly see the tiny baby still partially in the birth canal.  :o

7.  The dinosaur family groups (or KINDS) came off the Ark with Noah, his family, and all the other animal kinds and bird kinds, ready to repopulate the Earth.
8.  Dinosaurs are considered to have become extinct since then, sadly, like too many other species we can think of.
9.  However, historical eyewitness evidence confirms that dinosaurs lived for centuries after the Flood. Stories, legends, drawings, descriptions, etchings, carvings, and sculptures of these creatures abound, some possibly exaggerated, but the most recent accounts originate from only a few hundred years ago. Many people knew them then as ‘dragons’. A peasant farmer is reported to have killed a small dinosaur / dragon near Bologna in Italy in 1572 AD while leading his cattle. Ancient people groups all around the world have told stories of heroes who killed large reptiles. And if you insert this phrase: ‘historical stories of dinosaurs or dragons’ into this creation search engine, you will find more. Here is another one:

“St. George had to deal with a dragon. Alexander the Great’s army encountered a dragon. Marco Polo recorded dragon dealings. Flavius Philostratus provided this sober account in the third century A.D.: ‘The whole of India is girt with dragons of enormous size; for not only the marshes are full of them, but the mountains as well, and there is not a single ridge without one…’ Similar accounts have been handed down orally within North, Central, and South American Indian groups. The fact that so many different peoples told the same details authenticates their testimony.” icr.org.

10.  Then as dinosaur numbers started to fade, so did the memories of them ever being around. Back then, there were no 21st century zoo programs fighting valiantly to preserve these magnificent creatures from extinction. Fossils (simply, bones turned into rock) of these ‘terrible lizards’ started to be rediscovered during the 1800s and given a new name… Dinosaur.

11.  As dinosaurs are considered to be extinct today, our knowledge of what they looked like can only be a guess from examining the clues in the fossil record. That is why they are often depicted differently by different artists. Did you know that many dinosaur exhibits were built from only a few fragments of bone?! For this reason, some people wonder if the whole dinosaur thing may have been a fabrication of someone’s imagination. None of us were there, so we don’t know. However, the Creation Museum happens to have a complete dinosaur skeleton on display, with one of the best-preserved Allosaurus fragilis skulls ever discovered. Dinosaur digs are found all over the world. This dinosaur dig has a layer of mudstone 1 meter (3 feet) thick, stretches for 80 acres and is filled with over a million dinosaur bones jumbled together. Plus we do have the account of the one eyewitness who was there – God, the Creator – and that testimony is recorded for us in the Bible (scroll down to find out where).

12.  Scientists have speculated on dozens of different ‘reasons’ on the ‘mystery’ of why dinosaurs became extinct. These speculations include… (don’t laugh):  constipation, sunburn, comets, cancer, volcanic activity, a global dust cloud and fire storm from a meteorite impact. Despite the fact that fossils are laid down by water and buried rapidly, a flood is strangely conspicuous by its absence.
13.  There are many legends, rumours, sightings, and stories (see below) from eyewitnesses that claim that some dinosaurs may possibly still be alive and hidden today!  :o

DINOSAURS IN THE BIBLE? YES! ABSOLUTELY!

elephant and hippo with tails like a cedar

© answersingenesis.org

Job 40:15-24  Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eats grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. He moves his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together. His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. He is the chief of the ways of God. He that made him can make his sword to approach unto him. Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the beasts of the field play. He lieth under the shady trees, in the covert of the reed, and fens. The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of the brook compass him about. Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not. He trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth. He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through snares.

NOTE:  Does your Bible have a modern footnote, something about an elephant or hippo?! Really…! With a tail like a cedar…? Hmmm, have you ever seen an elephant or a hippo with a tail like a cedar?! The Hebrew word תנין (tannin) likely refers to both land and sea serpents or dragons. Maybe there is a better explanation. An extinct one.

Only 100 Dinosaurs on the Ark? Seriously?! Average size of a cow?  (icr.org) How many animals were there and how big was the Ark? Could they fit? When I explained that only about 600 species of dinosaurs had ever been named, that many species had been named from only a piece of one bone, that many of the species were probably of the same “kind”, that many dinosaurs were small, that God wouldn’t have brought the largest specimens to Noah, and that, in my opinion, there were probably only around 100 dinosaurs onboard the Ark, with an average size of a cow; information from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Buried while giving Birth  (creation.com) Have a look at this exquisitely preserved fossil of an extinct marine reptile, an ichthyosaur, giving birth to a live baby—the beak of the baby is still inside mother’s birth canal. There is no way the mother just lay on the ocean floor for thousands of years while being slowly covered by accumulating sediments. To be preserved so beautifully, it must have been buried and hardened very rapidly to avoid damage by scavengers or decay, as we see happen today when something dies.

10,000 Dinosaurs  (isgenesishistory) When we arrived, we saw that a small tent had been set up and an area of land cleared out. There were about 6 people at this site, some digging in places and others doing prep work on bones they had taken out of the ground… Think about this for a moment. There is a layer of mudstone that is 1 meter (3 feet) thick and it stretches for 80-acres. That’s really shallow and really wide. But it’s filled with over a million bones. The big bones are at the bottom and the little bones are the top, having been “graded” through a gravity sorting process. In other words, something had to have killed all these dinosaurs at one time. Have a look at this real dinosaur dig and then organise your own!

Tracking Dinosaurs Down Under  (answersingenesis) The dinosaur tracks at Australia’s Lark Quarry, discovered in the 1960s, have been billed as the world’s only known example of a dinosaur stampede that was preserved as a fossil… a new and controversial interpretation suggests… the dinosaurs were strolling downstream on tippy-toes… God’s Word holds the clue to the real story. Surging waters during the early months of the global Flood would have brought ocean water and sand inland. Fleeing dinosaurs likely pressed their footprints into wet sediment… interspersed minerals cemented the grains, preserving the buried dinosaur prints. Meanwhile, the track makers were swept away in the Deluge.

Dinosaur Tracks can be found on every continent  (icr.org) But just how did they form? Short, punchy video (less than 2 minutes) from scientists who take the Bible seriously; or click here for a short article.

Tiny Pterosaur – a fossil egg  (creation.com) This fossil egg of a pterosaur (flying reptile) is only 2.08 inches (53 mm) long and 1.61 inches (41 mm) across. The pterosaur’s folded wings, tucked compactly inside the egg, give the tiny embryo a wingspan of 10½ inches (27 cm). Had it lived, scientists say that the embryo would have grown into a ‘medium-to-large pterosaur’ with a likely wingspan between 10–20 ft (3–6 metres).

Modern Animals and Plants are found buried WITH Dinosaurs – but this is HIDDEN from the public  (creation.com) Dr Carl Werner and his wife, Debbie, travelled over 100,000 miles (160,000 km) and took 60,000 photographs as they filmed the television series Evolution: The Grand Experiment… They focused on fossils found in dinosaur rock layers, and compared these fossils to modern animals and plants… “We found fossilized examples from every major invertebrate animal phylum living today including: arthropods (insects, crustaceans etc.), shellfish, echinoderms (starfish, crinoids, brittle stars, etc.), corals, sponges, and segmented worms (earthworms, marine worms). The vertebrates—animals with backbones such as fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals—show this same pattern. Cartilaginous fish (sharks and rays), boney fish (such as sturgeon, paddlefish, salmon, herring, flounder and bowfin) and jawless fish (hagfish and lamprey) have been found in the dinosaur layers and they look the same as modern forms. Modern-looking frogs and salamanders have been found in dinosaur dig sites. All of today’s reptile groups have been found in the dinosaur layers and they look the same or similar to modern forms: Snakes (boa constrictor), lizards (ground lizards and gliding lizards), turtles (box turtles, soft-shelled turtles), and crocodilians (alligators, crocodiles and gavials). Contrary to popular belief, modern types of birds have been found, including: parrots, owls, penguins, ducks, loons, albatross, cormorants, sandpipers, avocets, etc. When scientists who support evolution disclosed this information during our TV interviews, it appears that they could hardly believe what they were saying on camera… Paleontologists have found 432 mammal species in the dinosaur layers; almost as many as the number of dinosaur species. These include nearly 100 complete mammal skeletons. But where are these fossils? We visited 60 museums but did not see a single, complete mammal skeleton from the dinosaur layers displayed at any of these museums…”

Modern creatures ARE found in Dinosaur Fossil layers – but this is HIDDEN from the public (evolutionvscreation) Have natural history museums become irrelevant? How did their displays become so outdated and archaic that they are now misleading the public? Have museum curators consciously withheld certain fossils from their public displays, fossils that place the theory of evolution in jeopardy? And WHY would they do that? Here’s a longer interview with Dr. Carl Werner about his astounding discovery.

How to build or sculpt a Dinosaur for a museum display  (answersingenesis) a fun look behind the scenes at the state-of-the-art Creation Museum designed to bring the Bible to life and restore the authority of God’s Word.

Sea Monsters – more than a legend?  (creation.com) Reports of unknown monsters of the deep have been a part of sea lore for hundreds of years, but very little attention has been paid to such tales until recent years. With more and improved scientific methods of investigation, there is growing evidence that they are more than just a product of early sailors’ imaginations… The puzzle is solved, however, when the millions of years are seen as fiction, and the fossils are seen largely as the result of the global Flood described in the Bible. Although many creatures have become extinct in the thousands of years since the Flood, it is far less surprising for creationists than evolutionists when some of them, known only from the fossil record, turn up alive and well.

Bunyips and Dinosaurs  (creation.com) Australian Aborigines have long spoken of a frightening legendary creature they call a bunyip. They say the huge creature inhabits reedy swamps and creeks in parts of Australia. Its howl at night, and the stories of its abducting people and killing animals, have been enough to strike terror. In the early days of settlement in Geelong, Victoria (Australia) in the mid-1800s, reports of the alleged discovery of bunyip bones sparked panic among the settlers. A local newspaper reported in July 1845 that one of the bones found was shown to an Aboriginal who immediately claimed it was a bunyip bone. He was asked to draw the ‘bunyip’. The picture was taken to other Aborigines who had had no chance to communicate with each other, and each of them claimed independently that the bone and picture were of a bunyip… It was reported that the creature stood about four metres (12 or 13 feet) high.

Bunyips – Dinosaurs in Australia?  (creation.com) In 1845, people in the south of Australia discovered a large, odd bone. It was part of the knee of a gigantic animal, and unfossilized. A local Aboriginal man saw the bone and said it was a ‘bunyip’. The settlers thought he just meant a mythical monster, but he insisted the animal was real. Other Aboriginal people also said it was a ‘bunyip’. They said they had seen the animal, and named people it had killed… Next time someone tells you about the time of the dinosaurs, remember our ‘time machine’, the Bible. God made dinosaurs on the same day He made Adam and Eve and every other land animal; information for kids from scientists who take the Bible seriously

Spectacular 3D Dinosaur Fossil  (icr.org) The world’s best-preserved nodosaur stirred wide interest when it went on display… Its skin scales, fearsome shoulder spikes, and possibly even skin colors prompted a fossil pigment expert to declare that it “might have been walking around a couple of weeks ago.”

Dinosaur 3D Fossil  (creation.com) After the outer material was removed, what remained was the fossilized body of an armoured, plant-eating dinosaur called a nodosaur—from snout to hips—basically in its original 3-D shape. This is unusual because most fossils are flattened by the weight of sediment. The shape of its bone structures and scales are clearly discernible… estimated to have been 5.5 m (18 ft) long and weighed about 1,300 kg (2,860 lb).

Amazing design structures in Long-Necked Dinosaurs  (icr.org) the latest research reveals amazing structures that demonstrate the amazing design that could hold 30-foot-long necks aloft

Maybe your child has a dinosaur question they would like answers for? Topics already answered include: Were dinosaurs on Noah’s ark? If so, what happened to them? What happens to bones when an animals dies? Dinosaurs became birds? How could Noah have fitted huge dinosaurs on the Ark? Carbon dating of dinosaur bones? Dinosaurs and the Bible? Fire-breathing dragons? Dinosaur soft tissue – no big deal, right?

Would the real Leviathan stand up  (creation.com) The most promising candidate is Sarcosuchus, a monstrous ‘armour-plated’ crocodile. Sarcosuchus had an unusual bulbous cavity at the end of its snout that could have been used for mixing fire-generating chemicals. Other creatures still alive today (same designer) can do this too, e.g. the Bombardier Beetle.

How many different Dinosaurs were there?  (icr.org) Children are indoctrinated by secular sources to believe that there were hundreds of different kinds of dinosaurs that lived during ‘the dinosaur age’ millions of years ago. Thus, they are led to believe that evolution is true and the Biblical account of creation wrong. However, one begins to lose faith in this type of ‘science’ when a careful investigation is made. Find out about just ten out of them, but it may surprise (and shock) you.

Dinosaur Fossils – Evidence for the Great Flood?  (Christiananswers) information for kids; thousands of dinosaur bones can be found where they were washed together by violent flood waters and buried under mud, sand and rock. Many of the animals were torn apart and their bones broken and jumbled-up. The muds and sands hardened like concrete to form the great layers of fossil rocks we find today… Animals and plants will fossilize only if they are buried quickly and deeply, before predators, decay and weather destroy them.

Dating methods – information for kids  (creation.com) How many times have you heard something like, ‘This animal lived 50,000 years ago’, or ‘This person died 20,000 years ago’? Have you ever wondered how the scientists knew the age of the bone? Those who don’t accept the Biblical account of history look for other ways to discover the age of things. One of these methods is based on a substance found in our bodies, plants and all living things—it’s called carbon.

Dinosaur Teething Problems – information for kids  (creation.com) Have you ever seen a dinosaur tooth? Some large dinosaurs have teeth as long as the width of a magazine page. Could you imagine having to brush and clean those? Dinosaur teeth vary in shape as well as size.

DID YOU KNOW:  The largest sauropod dinosaurs may have been up to 190 feet (58 meters) long and as high as 30 feet 4 inches (9.25 metres). However, many dinosaurs were quite small, like Xixianykus, which was only about 20 inches (50 cm) long. Biblical scientists estimate there were probably only about 50-55 different dinosaur KINDS (55×2 = 110 dinosaurs) on the Ark, with the average size roughly that of a cow.

Fossils are not discovered with a tag saying 'millions of years'
© answersingenesis.org

THINK SPOT:  When dinosaur fossils are discovered, they are found jumbled up with ALL KINDS of modern birds, plants, and other animals, that look just like those we see around us today. This is precisely what we would expect to see from a global disaster like Noah’s Flood. However, museums do not display these fossils, but hide this information from the public. The big question is WHY? Dr Carl Werner investigated this puzzle. You will be stunned at what he found. And although ‘millions of years’ rolls off the tongue so easily, bones don’t come with tags, either… do they?

DINOSAURS + HUMANS? = YES!

Dinosaur didn’t die out 65 millions years ago  a viral video documentary featuring well known PhD scientists from creation.com, answersingenesis.org and icr.org who take the Bible seriously, discussing multiple dinosaur sightings from all over the world; and as Dr Wieland states (at the 13:54 mark) ‘if you only had one or two stories that sounded a bit similar to dinosaurs, you could see it as just a coincidence, but when you have this universal theme right across the globe, many different continents, many different cultures, and over a vast span of human history, then there’s probably going to have to be some universal core truth there.’

Dinosaurs and Humans  (creation.com)

Dinosaurs and Humans  (icr.org)

Dinosaurs and Humans  (answersingenesis)

Some ancient Norwegian Viking vessels have fire-breathing dragons carved on them. Could they have seen Leviathan as described in Job 41 with sparks, smoke, and flashes of fire coming from the mouth and nose?

Genesis Park  (genesispark) A showcase of evidence that dinosaurs and man were created together and have co-existed throughout history.

Dinosaurs and the Bible – Forbidden History  (forbidden-history) Dragon history is nearly universal throughout ancient cultures of the world. Where did it come from? How did different people, separated by continents, describe, record, draw, etch, sew and carve these creatures with such uniformity if they were not eyewitnesses? And why is this history forbidden?

DINOSAURS ALIVE TODAY?! = YOU DECIDE…!

Dinosaurs hidden in the swamps of Africa?  (creation.com) Over the past 100 years, there have been many reports of sightings in a remote area of central Africa of a swamp-dwelling animal known to local villagers as ‘mokele-mbembe’—the ‘blocker-of-rivers’.

Dinosaurs alive in PNG?  (creation.com) villagers travelling in a canoe reported seeing a ‘dinosaur-like reptile’ wading in shallow water

Live Plesiosaurs?  (creation.com) “Of all plesiosaur-like creatures washed up on shores around the world, basking sharks account for over 90%… there is evidence, however, for live plesiosaurs in recent times… it would not surprise me at all if a live plesiosaur was found today.”

Other modern ‘Dinosaurs’ rediscovered  (creation.com) Coelacanth (an extinct fish) and the Wollemi Pine (an extinct tree) have been discovered hidden away – so why not dinosaurs?pleiosaur

Cryptozoological (Hidden Animals) Evidence  (genesispark) possible great reptiles still surviving today; each location has been personally visited and multiple credible reports verified

  • Plesiosaurs (great swimming reptiles) – Lake Champlain, Loch Ness, Santa Cruz, Lake Okanagan
  • Pterosaurs (flying reptiles) – Africa, PNG
  • Sauropod – Africa, Amazon
  • Ceratopsians (frilled dinosaurs) – Africa

Forbidden History  (forbidden-history) Is there evidence that dinosaurs and man have existed together? Are there still living dinosaurs? Have you been told that the dinosaurs died off “millions” of years ago? Is evidence of dinosaurs existing with man being suppressed, because it proves false prevailing scientific theories about the age of the earth and the origin of man and animals?

Whilst researching this topic, I was fascinated and surprised to find so many stories and links, including one person saying eyewitness ‘sightings of pterodactyls in Mexico are so frequent that creationist and missionary John Pendleton is setting up a trap’. I decided to personally track down and write to Mr Pendleton, and he very kindly replied and confirmed this information: ‘Sorry, I don’t have a photo YET! I have talked to lots of people who have seen it. One lady was almost carried off in December 2006. I want to trap the thing live.’ See his video presentation, Dinosaurs and the Bible. At the 13:40 mark in this video, Mr Pendleton talks about a flying dinosaur in PNG that carried a near-dead tribal man off, then dropped him back on the ground when it realised he was still (barely) alive. Apparently, they are known to be scavengers, often raiding new, shallow graves.

*

In another video link that John gave me, he further describes how he is hoping to trap and tranquillize a live flying pterosaur where he lives in Zacatecas, Mexico and put a radio-transmitter on it in order to find the whole family. Pterosaurs are at least the size of a hang-glider. He describes how the lady who was almost carried off in December 2006 was wiring a gate door shut, heard flapping wings, crouched down & managed to elude capture. He also refers to sightings of swimming reptiles in 50 lakes across the world and he confirmed that has spoken to a ‘Nessie’ eyewitness himself; plus there have been reported sightings of pterosaurs in PNG, Australia, New Mexico, USA, Mexico, Venezuela, Africa.

Nessie’s Official Web site  (nessie.co.uk) the official Loch Ness site with information and photographs of possible sightings, the last one recorded in 2011.

NOTE:  I have mainly restricted the majority of my links to Biblical organisations that I know and trust who have Ph.D. scientists on staff (like creation.com / icr.org / answersingenesis.org). If you are interested in further information on this fascinating topic, I found a virtual rabbit warren of links, books and web sites by cryptozoologists (who study ‘hidden animals’) claiming to be investigating live pterosaur sightings reported from all over the world. Could modern, living and nocturnal Rhamphorhynchoid pterosaurs (called ropens) with intrinsic bioluminescence account for some strange sighting of lights? It is claimed that the ropen’s defining characteristic is the glow it emits from its stomach and tail. Many eyewitnesses have claimed to see this glow at night. A simple search will bring up hours of fun!

    • I know, me too. It was a ton of work, but so much fun! :)

      Plus the whole dinosaur on the ark thing / what happened to the dinosaurs is a very common faith question. I like to hit potential problems head on with my kids, before they might become a problem and damage their faith. There ARE reasonable answers for EVERYTHING… even if we don’t know them yet.
