    In the Creation at the beginning of the Bible, how come the Bible never mentions anything about dinosaurs?

    I think the scientific proof of the existence of dinosaurs (and the fact that they are NEVER mentioned as a creation of God in the Bible) pretty much proves the Bible is not a book of complete facts, wouldn't you say?

    OK I know what some will say: There was not a need to discuss or talk about dinosuars in the Good Book and that is why they are not mentioned. Whatever.... Science has proven that dinosaurs roamed the earth MILLIONS of years before man was created. Well in the Book Of Genesis, the creation of Earth by God is discussed, and the creation of MAN is discussed, but how come no mention of "God's creation" of dinosaurs???

    I'd love to get a decent answer to this question from one of the Christians here....

    The Bible was written by men who had no knowledge of dinosaurs. Maybe god forgot to tell'em about those big lizards when he gave them the skinny on everything else, eh? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] you're not supposed to take the bible literally - except for the parts which fit your own particular political agenda of course.

    Well here's what I think about it. The description that the Bible gives about creation doesn't go into any detail about which animals were created and which ones were first, it just says that God created them. Just because it doesn't mention dinosaurs or any other animal specifically doesn't mean it's false.

    I put some agreement to what Astrobond just said, but also I don't believe the creation story in its literal sense. I'm a believer in the bible, so I don't believe in Darwinism, either, and while I believe there is some truth probably in the creation story, I just don't believe it's the whole story. Like, Adam and Eve had three sons - where did the women come from that they married? The biblical story of creation is one that was handed down by the Israelites until someone finally decided, "Hey, we should write this down", so, much like any of the good Dave stories in "Crazy From The Heat", some details may have changed along the way. I don't think we're supposed to take the whole 7 day thing literally anyway, I believe somewhere else is says "a day to God is like a thousand years" or something like that (never been good at quoting scripture, no matter how many times I read it!)

    Genesis: Chapter 1, Verses 20-25

    20 Then God said, "Let the water teem with an abundance of living creatures, and on the earth let birds fly beneath the dome of the sky." And so it happened: 21 God created the great sea monsters and all kinds of swimming creatures with which the water teems, and all kinds of winged birds. God saw how good it was, 22 and God blessed them, saying, "Be fertile, multiply, and fill the water of the seas; and let the birds multiply on the earth." 23 Evening came, and morning followed--the fifth day.
    24 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth all kinds of living creatures: cattle, creeping things, and wild animals of all kinds." And so it happened: 25 God made all kinds of wild animals, all kinds of cattle, and all kinds of creeping things of the earth. God saw how good it was.

    Okay, so it goes into a little detail [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img], but I think my point is still good. The description of "all kinds of swimming creatures" and "all kinds of wild animals" can include just about any animal including dinosaurs.

    Very cool Van Gully. But I see nothing there mentioning the millions of years the dinosaurs roamed the earth.

God is all around you and in you. He believes in you and loves you already, just as you are, so you're half-way there! Read the Bible for inspiration and insight, not as a document to debunk or critique, and you might be surprised. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    One way to think about it is to look at the four gospels. Each one of them gives an account of the life of Christ, but each is told from the standpoint of that writer's experiences with Christ. Sometimes Matthew, Mark, and Luke all talk about the same event, but you get different details from each person. They aren't inconsistant with the other's account, they just happen to include or exclude certain details.

    The Genesis account of creation is the only one that was written down and put in the Bible, but that doesn't mean that's all that God did.
