Feedback: Dinosaurs Living with People—The Biblical Worldview – Answers in Genesis

Dinosaur Fossil from OCR.org

I love this statement that they started their answer with in the excerpt they had in their Answers Weekly Newsletter.

Since the Bible is the Word of God, and since God cannot lie, then the Bible is trustworthy. That is our starting point.

That is exactly how I feel about what is written by me here on this blog. I start with knowing that God’s Word is truth and that all these birds that were created for our enjoyment, were Created By God, Not Made in China or Made in the USA, but Made By God.

Anyway, the following article excerpt came from Feedback. It has to do with Dinosaurs living with humans.

Q: Why do we believe dinosaurs lived with people?

A: Since the Bible is the Word of God, and since God cannot lie, then the Bible is trustworthy. That is our starting point. We are told that land animals were created on Day Six, and this would include dinosaurs. Since Day Six is also when man was created, we certainly believe dinosaurs lived at the same time as man.

How do you explain the various petroglyphs of dinosaurs found around the world? How do you explain the fact that so many dragon legends from around the world describe creatures that match what we know about dinosaurs from their fossils? How do you explain the biblical account that seems to describe something like a brachiosaurus, called behemoth in Job 40:15–24?

  1. There is what is considered a ‘gap’ from Genesis 1:1 to Genesis 1:2 which if read correctly, will show you that there was creation (Gen 1:1) and RE-creation (Gen 2:1), both by God.

      • Go to the scriptures, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” This says that God ‘created’ which says that where there was once nothing, now something is made. However, a cataclismic (sp) event took place, and evidence of this was a flood, “The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep [water]. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters”. To be clear, God makes nothing that does not have form or is void of anything because He is perfect. Thus, He re-created as it says in the next verse, “Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.” God re-created for six days and rested on the seventh. To go back to what was on the earth before re-creation, there are many opinions regarding this. Think of it this way: If re-creation is under 10K years, what about all of the evidence that there were other creatures that roamed the earth millions of years ago? There is so much that we will never really know until we have the opportunity to ask God one day. To get back to the creation question, be sure to not listen to opinion – instead go to the original Hebrew that the scripures were written in the OT and translate it carefully in its original context. And, Adam was in re-creation.

  2. An excellent article, Lee. And the link to the article on the “gap theory” is significant. I have also listened to more than one teacher who, using the original Hebrew language, makes clear that there was only one creation and one command for man and woman to bring forth children as well — rather than the normal English understanding of the word “replenish.”

    I would add one more thought to this discussion as well, if I may. Many people really do misunderstand the time period in which satan and his angels were cast down to the earth. If we study the Word carefully, we see that until Jesus’ finished work, satan still had open access to the presence of God. He came freely into His presence a number of times during the Old Covenant (two examples were concerning Job and concerning Joshua). But AFTER Jesus finshed His work of salvation and took His blood into heaven, from that point on, we do not see satan as having any access whatsoever to the presence of God.

    And if we study Revelation 12 very closely, we see that it clearly couples the final “throwing down” of satan to the earth with the victory of Jesus Christ: At the time of satan’s being cast out of heaven, the voice in heaven says, “NOW is come salvation and strength and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ. And the accuser of our brethen is cast down which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” The final casting out of satan is tied irrevocably to Jesus’ finished work, and the shedding of HIS BLOOD. So to believe that satan was cast down to earth before the creation of Adam and Eve, is to believe serious error concerning the finished work of Christ.

    I believe true students of the Bible must take the revelation of the New Testament as the light in which to interpret and undersand the Old. That being the case, this passage in Revelation 12 is much more to the point than any of the Old Testament scriptures and/or words that people try to use to prove a theory of two creations.

    Continued blessings on you and your work!
