There have been a few. I am not going to search for every known instance, but quite a few came up with a bing search. Before they knew what they were misidentification would be problematic.
The oldest certain find of dinosaur bones, not speculating or inferring, was by Chang Qu, 4th Century BC, Sichuan.
Way back in 1676, Robert Plot, the curator of an English museum, described and drew a thigh bone that he believed belonged to a giant man. Although that fossil disappeared without a trace, the surviving illustration suggests that it may well have been part of a "Megalosaurus." Later, in 1822, large teeth discovered in England by Mary Ann Mantell and her husband, Gideon, were thought to be the remains of a huge and extinct iguana. It wasn't until 1841 that British scientist Richard Owen came to realize that such fossils were distinct from the teeth or bones of any living creature.www.scholastic.com...

yes... that is how scientific theists think.
now we just need to research if there are any instances of uncovered dinosaur bones recorded before the science of Archaeology was invented.
Archaeology came into being because of Biblical History, when scientist first went searching for those places mentioned in the bible they didn't have a name for this type of science, the science of uncovering the past.
You want to know something else interesting? they found all those places in that fairy tale novel called the Bible.
I find that quite interesting, Sumer, Babylon and even Ur the oldest civilization, all explained and talked about in the bible and only uncovered in the 19th and 20th centuries.
You can put your hand on a piece of wall at Ur and touch it, physical hard scientific evidence... as real as dinosaur bones.

So whether the video is made by legit Christians or a group
mocking them, the issue is the same. I have heard Christians
claim that Dinosaurs are a hoax for almost my entire life
and not only from Fundy churches, I was raised Lutheran
as a kid, and they told us dinosaurs were a hoax.
Which Lutheran church? I don't mean which specific one but was it a Missouri Synod Lutheran church? I think they are fundamentalist.
Two of them and they were both in the Los Angeles area,
and I never really thought of that; maybe they were fundamentalist.

Oh geez .. I haven't seen and read so much Bullc*** in a long time ...
I don't even understand their motivation here .. let's pretend they are right and the Dinosaurs really didn't exists .. honestly, who would care? Would that shatter our entire modern society? Probably not ... would that bring people closer to "God"? Probably not .. Will the "Deniers" profit from this in either way? Probably yes...
So this whole thing is just an attempt to make some money based on a very simple shotgun-recipe:
1) Take a proven and accepted topic and turn it 180 degree
2) Mix God or some other entity in it
3) Put your YouTube channel together and go public
4) Harvest the people who stick ...
People have too much time on their hands...
It probably wouldn't hurt if there were a few more complaints
They're all part of a Facebook group called "Trolling with Logic".
Sometimes I wish we lived in the world based on the film "Invention of Lying" (minus that part where lying is ever invented), or it should be a mandatory international law that all satire work should have a disclaimer of being satire, because I am dead dead dead dead tired of trying to figure out if people like this are pulling our legs or are really first-class idiots.
