Our culture is saturated with the idea that dinosaurs lived “millions of years ago”. No matter where we look — children’s books, movies, TV, academia — the prevailing view is that dinosaurs ruled the earth long before man arrived on the scene.
However, a growing number of people are questioning this narrative. For example, the scientific community has been rocked in recent years by the discovery of soft-tissue fossils containing red blood cells, blood vessels, and flexible ligaments, indicating that dinosaurs may have been alive more recently than commonly thought.
Here are just a few examples:
History also is replete with dragon legends from all over the world, and many ancient artifacts, sculptures, carvings and drawings clearly depict dinosaur-like creatures.
Here are some intriguing examples:
The evidence is compelling on two counts:
(1) It poses a serious challenge to the belief that dinosaurs lived “millions of years ago”.
(2) It is consistent with a young earth and global flood as described in the Bible.
The problem with the “millions of years ago” narrative is that it undermines the central message of the Bible, which is founded upon a good God creating a perfect world only around 6,000 years ago, without “millions of years” of death and suffering and “evolution” (scientific evidence supports a young earth and refutes the theory of evolution; while natural selection is an established fact, evolution is not).
Therefore, what we believe about dinosaurs and when they lived has major theological implications for the moral character of God, the authority of Scripture, and the very Gospel itself. To find out more, please see our feature in CREATION magazine:
