Satan created the dino's. They contribute to his lifeview of death and destruction and future eternal damnation through fire. They are a tribute to his self centered, self serving ideology. They depict his gruesome looks and bloodthirst. They were not required to make fossil fuels. The compressed vegetation was enough for that.

I doubt that is true. Satan has no power to create, his only power is being great at making people deviate from their faith. Dinosaurs could be placed by God for us to have entertainment, argue, and grow with each other. There is nothing more beautiful then watching something you made grow and explore.

Imagine a world without exploration and the need to achieve, how boring would living here be? I believe God knows what is best for our species. People complain about dying not understanding that if we did not die the Earth would over populate.

Whether you believe in religion, the bible, being that it was basically stolen from all the other old world religions predating it by thousands of years, or you believe in evolution. We would not even be where we are now if it were not for dinosaurs, and all the flora and fauna of the past inhabiting this earth. They made fossil fuels, gasses, and oils that we use in abundance today!! That is the whole point! Whether it happened as one grand design or it was simply a byproduct of evolution doesn't really matter now does it? There are far too many variables and holes in all of the speculations that have been brought forth, can't we just take it as it is? We may never know why.

We, as a species ourselves, seem to believe that dinos and land masses and civilizations and planets and universes just "popped up" overnight. We seem to forget that everything comes forth over time. I am talking about very long periods of time in every case.

Our very own civilization is the result of an ongoing, excruciatingly slow process of evolution (I don't mean from apes) that is at the core of everything in the universe.

I am okay in believing that a non physical, non gendered "source" was responsible for the slow creation of ALL species, just the same way we, as the human creator species, have created all sorts of specific breeds of canines. You want one with a flat nose, long tail and stripes like a zebra? Well, give me a 100 years and thru a series of specific breeding standards, I can create that for you.

Here is a conundrum for those that still like to think of a long haired, grey bearded "guy in the sky" creator that loves you if you are good but sends you to hell if you don't follow the guidelines. So this god knows all, created all, knows the outcome of all, is responsible for the end of all, created all the details of all and knows in the end (all knowing) what you are ultimately going to do in the end. He has a grand plan of a perfect eternity that is all planned out by his inspiration....hhhhmmmmm.....

Tell me why he created your feared devil in the first place...."He" already knows the outcome and it certainly wouldn't be very smart for an intelligent creator to create an opposing force that works against his own perfect force, now would it.

The intelligent creator would create a wide open plain full of grass. Then create antelope to eat it. Then would create cheetahs to eat the antelope. Then would create vultures to clean up the mess...etc., etc., etc.

Everything is in existence the way it is cause.....that's the way it is...

Sleep well... All is okay...

It is the fall of man that created the ultimate satan as we now know. satan was on earth until he used adam and eve as a tool for his plan. You are off topic my friend. off topic indeed and yet nobody has posted anything up

I smell an atheist agenda. it would make sense seeing how we are talking about dinos and now we are disproving God now. I thought this site was better moderated

Why? Oh God, Jesus Christ, that is so simple!

God created dinosaurs so that everyone else could all laugh very loudly at all the super-confused Christians (whilst obviously keeping within the ATS T&C parameters)!\



But seriously now... The question is, "Why did God create Christians?"

I'm pretty sure angels are ethereal creatures and therefor have no bodies that could fossilize.

Anyone ever wonder maybe Adam and Eve weren't humans? I could be way off I'm too familiar with the bible but I think the only description it says is that god created them in his image so whos to say they are human.

oh and btw he didn't create dinosaurs he just put the fossils here for us to have fun with building up make believe creatures in our museums while he laughs at us, believing they existed once.........lmao JK

Why did God create dinosaurs?

Why WOULDN'T God create dinosaurs?

It's the first thing I would do if I were God. "Right then, first on the agenda are giant reptiles. Huge vicious looking monsters that I can watch devour eachother......."

"Bored with dinosaurs now, what, I wonder would be the coolest most wicked awesome way I could kill them off? Oh yer, a giant meteorite would look epic from up here......"

"Right then, whats next? Maybe some humans that look like me but haven't got all of my super powers. Yer, I can watch them fight it out for the next few hundred thousand years......"

"Wow, this is boring. I think I'll send my son down there with some special powers to mix things up a bit. He's becoming a nuisence here to be honest, turning all the water into wine and getting everyone drunk......"

"Ah, this is much more entertaining. Job done, for now......"

I think the question is..."Why didn't God create leprechauns that freely give their gold and pink 2ft elephants that breed with 4ft green giraffes and produce purple eleraffe offspring?"

How come no one looks at the big eraser called an astroid that God sent. I think if we were hangin out with the dinos their would be just a tiny problem every day. ROFL.


can't you see the trouble the earth went just to create us?

Jordan River,

You are correct in a way. I did get off topic in the fact I didn't mention the word dinosaur in my post. I was under the impression that folks would be able to make the connection between my "canine breeding" analogy and the OP's subject matter of dinosaurs. I guess the old saying is true, "Never assume".

Dinosaurs are only one "part" of the entire scheme of the entire creation. Are the stars, the universe, the oceans, the plants, man, dinosaurs, tress, etc., etc., etc., not also "part" of the entire creation? The asteroid you mentioned would be a part of the creation as well.

I do have a hard time believing that a great and mighty Zeus like god, deems it "loving" to annihilate his creations by throwing a flaming fastball of ice and metal at this creation called earth so that his next idea, man, can come into existence.

I suppose that is just me though. I quit fearing god and satan and all the other stuff that we have been told to fear and it helped me see things in a different light. I am not suggesting YOU believe that way, but it works well for me. It's kinda funny though...One of the most important foundations of the religion you follow says "Judge not"...You certainly seem adept at putting me into a certain category...I think you mentioned I am somehow an "atheist" trying to push an atheist agenda?

Nice.............Enjoy your christmas lights this year.

OP -- Why just dinosaurs?

Scientist say that 99.9% of all species that ever existed on Earth are extinct. So, why did you stop at dinosaurs? What about all of those other extinct species?

However, if one is of the mind that God is the creator of the universe -- i.e., the WHOLE universe (including other planets with potentially other alien species), then that person may say that all of God's creations have a purpose in God's plan -- even the extinct ones.

For example, it is thought that dinosaurs evolved into the birds we have today. So there is a link between dinosaurs of the past and our world today...

...which brings up the next interesting point: why are we concerned with "today". The Universe is 13 billion years old, and IF the universe has a supreme creator, why would that creator be only concerned with "now"? If there is a God who created the universe, that universe has a long past and an even longer future. Dinosaurs (and humans) are only a "blip" in the grand scheme of things.

When humans are extinct (in a relatively short few million years -- 10s of millions if we're lucky), the question then could be asked, "Why did God create Humans?"

G-d created the dinosaurs so that millions of years later we would be able to run our world on fossil fuels!!


Seriously though, I always ask this question to people who are devout believers. Never hear a good response. Also, God supposedly created the Universe/World/ living creatures in a week. On which one of those days did he create the dinos, and which day of the week did he wipe them out? No wonder the guy had to rest on the seventh day, thats a lot of work!!

actually a lot of creationists take the stance of an early earth and the extinction being due to the noahic flood....that explains the mass extinction...it doesn't explain the dating of the fossilized remains...which...well...imo isn't 100% scientific....it remains to be seen just HOW ACCURATE these modern dating methods actually are.....


No. It doesn't remain to be seen at all. Radioactive isotopes decay at a observable and predictable rates. Each isotope available for dating decays at different rates - carbon has a very short half life, so it is used for relatively recent dating. To date much older fossils, scientists look to the decay of other isotopes in the surrounding soil (above and below the fossil) - most likely Uranium 235. Just because you don't want to take the time to actually learn what radiometric dating is doesn't mean that its accuracy "remains to be seen." A lot of things "remain to be seen" if you have your head buried in the sand.

Let me get this strait - your premise is that a perfect and magical wizard, a master of time and space, created the universe, but he screwed up somehow and had to kill everyone. Within in his infinite power, the most efficient and humane means to wipe out all the bad people on earth was to drown them in a giant flood along with all other life? So, he can make an entire universe from scratch, but when it comes to killing people, the only means at his disposal is water levels/rain? Also, your single mass extinction would presumably require human skeletons and dinosaur skeletons to be found at the same sedimentary layer, which is not the case since our species did not yet exist at the time of the dinosaur's extinction.

God also designed their genetic code so that pervasive inbreeding would eventually lead severe mutations and infertility, but knowing this he still figured that two of each animal would be sufficient to repopulate the earth? Assuming this is true, we are all the result of Noah's inbreeding and we all changed skin colors spontaneously at some point, without evolution, to promote the most efficient production of vitamin D based on our region of origin's exposure to sunlight of varying intensity?

Do you have any facts or evidence to support anything you just said besides a book of fairy tales?

I'm not a Christian but have gone to church many times. Our church was not fundamentalist as so many Christians here are. The stories in the bible are considered parables. Many cultures and religions have their own creation parables. Fundamentalism is a recent phenomenon. Taking the bible literally alienates a lot of people as a lot of those old stories sound pretty silly and disagree with modern understanding of science and how the universe evolved. The old stories were written by people with their own beliefs and primitive understanding.

Anyway, I suspect that if there is a God, it happened more like this. He created the universe with physical laws and let everything run its course. The dinosaurs, people, and other lifeforms all occur by chance and in various forms. It's a big experiment.

Hi,

Please explain how you are so sure of radio active decay in light of Heisenberg's uncertaintiy principle?

Possibly that is why there is little faith in the accuracy of isotpoic decay measurements?

Peace!

You guys are all wrong. God created the earth in 7 "Human" days, as you the society claim to be, then he created man. The bible doesnt specify he created men right after he created the Earth.

Dinosaurs are the outcome of an atmospheric evolution, so as us Humans. The point of angels is just rhetorical.
