When did God make dinosaurs?
In Genesis 1:24 we read, “And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.” All the “beasts of the earth” were made on day six. We read in Exodus 20:11 “For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.” Everything that was made that ever lived upon the face of the earth was made in those six days. God made dinosaurs within those six days; he made the ones that live in the sea and fly on the fifth day and the ones that roamed around on the earth on the sixth day.
So did men and dinosaurs live together as contemporaries? Yes. We read in the book of Job regarding dinosaurs. Job 40:15-24 “Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. He moveth 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.”
There is also much physical evidence that shows that men lived in the same time as Dinosaurs. One such example can be found in the town of Glen Rose, Texas. Through that town runs the Paluxy River. In the bed of this river were discovered dinosaur footprints. Some of these dinosaur footprints are on display at the University of Texas at Austin. The interesting thing about these footprints is that right along side there are human footprints. The human footprints were made in the same time frame as the dinosaur footprints. How could this be true if dinosaurs did not live in the same time as humans?
There is other evidence as well. In some old Indian dwellings in Havasupai Canyon in Arizona there are pictures of dinosaurs that were drawn on the wall by humans. Human footprints have been found in rock that is supposed to be 500 million years before man appeared. Human footprints have been found with trilobites. Human skulls found 130 feet below the earth under 5 separate layers of lava. There have even been some fossilized dinosaur bones found that have human carvings on them done with a flint stone. The evidence points to the fact of the coexistence of dinosaurs and man together in the same period of time.
