It is not possible to live without the ego unless you live every breath of your life meditating on a rock somewhere.

I don't know.

However, according to some ancient texts, such as Mayan, they say man has been here before.

If I remember correctly, the Mayans say this is mans 3rd or 4th cycle. Supposedly, we were here before and will be here again after we either destroy ourselves or are judged and wiped away.

It is possible, if the cycles are true, that man was here with the dinosuars.

In fact, it has always been a strike against evolution in my book - how could a brontasaurus evolve into that WAY large beast.

Maybe the flintstones really did have a pet named 'Dino'.

I would have said in the same way, and indeed for the same reason, that Giraffes have such long necks. In fact pretty much everything seems to have been bigger back then.

I was once informed, by a person with supreme confidence in this idea, that fossils are made from plaster, and were buried by God to give us something to do. I thought I'd share that because it seemed relevent, and I hope it answers your question

Read nephraTeri,
Teri has it figured out. The bible doesn't mention dinosaurs because the folks who made up the story only to have it re-written a zillion ti,es just didn't know about Texas let alone dinosaurs.
If you are ignorant of the existence of something there is no way you can talk about it.
God didn't create dinosaurs because god didn't know about them. God only knew what Mesopotamian people knew 3000 years ago and while they knew a lot they didn't really have a great deal of knowledge. Our benefit is that we came 3000 years later and benefit from vast knowledge compared to the ancients and we know sooo little it is pathetic.
The stuff we make up today will look just as rediculous in 100 years; forget 1000!

why couldnt god have created them what makes them so diferent from every other creature weve claimed god created but here is my answer

there is a gap btwn gen1:1 &2 of possibly thousands of years i wont really try to prove this but if you wnt proof in scripture ill answer you w/ questions in this lucifer ruled the earth there was men and angels on the earth at this time when Lucifer convinced everyone to rebel against God Gid flooded the earth there is more detail to this but that is the basic concept it is believed that dinosaurs lived during this period

another theory is that the fallen angels that mated with some women did so with animal s which was described in the bk of giants i believe that the giants and dinosaurs and possibly thunderbirds or giant squids and stuuf were created that way so no i dont believe that God created them but he could have

and the ages set on the earth and fossils and stuff by radiocarbon dating cant be given any credit to that method has been disproved many times though they can prove the age of the earth with other methods which is biblical according to the gap theory

So Essen your willing to make a conclusion on somthing so profound, on some broad nondescriptive text?

I cant explain the dinosaurs not being in the bible, but I can probably explain why man/woman believes there is a god.

God created everything. The word Dinosaur is not mentioned in the bible because it was not created until the 1800's. However, there are at least 2 accounts of Dinosaurs I know of, Leviathan and Bohemoth.

Leviathon in Job
1 Canst thou draw out leviathan with a fishhook? Or press down his tongue with a cord?

2 Canst thou put a rope into his nose? Or pierce his jaw through with a hook?

3 Will he make many supplications unto thee? Or will he speak soft words unto thee?

4 Will he make a covenant with thee, That thou shouldest take him for a servant for ever?

5 Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? Or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?

6 Will the bands of fishermen make traffic of him? Will they part him among the merchants?

7 Canst thou fill his skin with barbed irons, Or his head with fish-spears?

8 Lay thy hand upon him; Remember the battle, and do so no more.

9 Behold, the hope of him is in vain: Will not one be cast down even at the sight of him?

10 None is so fierce that he dare stir him up; Who then is he that can stand before me?

11 Who hath first given unto me, that I should repay him? Whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.

12 I will not keep silence concerning his limbs, Nor his mighty strength, nor his goodly frame.

13 Who can strip off his outer garment? Who shall come within his jaws?

14 Who can open the doors of his face? Round about his teeth is terror.

15 His'strong scales are his pride, Shut up together as with a close seal.

16 One is so near to another, That no air can come between them.

17 They are joined one to another; They stick together, so that they cannot be sundered.

18 His sneezings flash forth light, And his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.

19 Out of his mouth go burning torches, And sparks of fire leap forth.

20 Out of his nostrils a smoke goeth, As of a boiling pot and burning rushes.

21 His breath kindleth coals, And a flame goeth forth from his mouth.

22 In his neck abideth strength, And terror danceth before him.

23 The flakes of his flesh are joined together: They are firm upon him; they cannot be moved.

24 His heart is as firm as a stone; Yea, firm as the nether millstone.

25 When he raiseth himself up, the mighty are afraid: By reason of consternation they are beside themselves.

26 If one lay at him with the sword, it cannot avail; Nor the spear, the dart, nor the pointed shaft.

27 He counteth iron as straw, And brass as rotten wood.

28 The arrow cannot make him flee: Sling-stones are turned with him into stubble.

29 Clubs are counted as stubble: He laugheth at the rushing of the javelin.

30 His underparts are like'sharp potsherds: He spreadeth as it were a threshing-wain upon the mire.

31 He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: He maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.

32 He maketh a path to shine after him; One would think the deep to be hoary.

33 Upon earth there is not his like, That is made without fear.

34 He beholdeth everything that is high: He is king over all the sons of pride.

Bohemoth in Job

15 Behold now, behemoth, which I made as well as thee; He eateth grass as an ox.

16 Lo now, his strength is in his loins, And his force is in the muscles of his belly.

17 He moveth his tail like a cedar: The sinews of his thighs are knit together.

18 His bones are as tubes of brass; His limbs are like bars of iron.

19 He is the chief of the ways of God: He only that made him giveth him his sword.

20 Surely the mountains bring him forth food, Where all the beasts of the field do play.

21 He lieth under the lotus-trees, In the covert of the reed, and the fen.

22 The lotus-trees cover him with their shade; The willows of the brook compass him about.

23 Behold, if a river overflow, he trembleth not; He is confident, though a Jordan swell even to his mouth.

24 Shall any take him when he is on the watch, Or pierce through his nose with a snare?
