A very simple question, which i will look forward to the answers...
Where in the bible does it mention the jurassic period..i.e (dinosaurs).
I mention this to every Jehovas witness that comes knocking on my door...

Hahahahaha!

I don't think it does mention anything to do with Dinosaurs or prehistoric era life forms.

I used to be friends with a couple catholic or christian (not sure what religion) kids that used to go to my primary school, their parents were under the impression that the Earth was only like 6000 years old.
We had an excursion to a Museum once which had dinosaur bones on display, the two mates I mentioned before weren't allowed to go because their parents said that it goes against their church and the Bibles teachings, and that the Earth wasn't around millions of years ago.

How can people believe this? There are bones like RIGHT THERE!

I don't believe the Bible mentions the Jurassic Period. I also don't see where it discounts the Jurassic Period either. The Bible seems more focused on human history rather than fauna or flora. There are a few words that we don't have definitions of like "behemoth" and "leviathan" but it's unclear whether these are current beasts or extinct ones.

Regarding Jehovas Witnesses, my advice is to read the whole chapter of the Bible from which the sentence was pulled. If the chapter doesn't gel with the context of that one sentence, this should tell you something.

I've seen the 'math' on how this 6,000 is claimed to be from, however it makes a few assumptions as I see it.

The only way I can see someone reconciling this is if they believe that God put the bones there to deceive mankind. Deception, as I understand it, is not the practice of God but rather the enemy.

The bible doesnt mention mobile phones or computers either.. Why??... Because those names and words had not been invented yet..

The word "dinosaur" was first coined by Sir Richard Owen in the 1900's..

The bible does however refer to giant lizards called Behemoth and Leviathan. It also mentions dragons..... You do the math...

Damn you! When you're right, your right. I was going to say something very similar. The bible does describe great beasts calles Behemoths indeed.

I may be an athiest, but I at least know about what I don't believe in!

Yes, but dragons aren't mentioned until Revelation...so unless time is moving backwards...

It is behemoth...lived in the swamps, on the plains, and in the mountains. Is described as being large with legs like iron, and each step echoes..ie thunder lizaed.

Many theologians and commentators claim it is an elephant or hippo...but the description of the tail is the key.... a tail like the cedars of Lebanon...

the cedars of lebanon were huge and strong...used and referred to by soloman in construction of the temple. Ever see the tail of a hippo or elephant...tiny in respects to the creature. A massive animal with a massive tail...in all geographic locations...Behemoth= dinosaur.

Refer to the Book of Job... I like the KJV best, most descriptive too.

Aha! Learn something new everyday. I missed the tail part, thank you for this. All new brain-food to throw into the mix for me.

It does not mention dinos but this whole thing is really just an attempt to troll. If you were really trying to find an answer you obviously have the internet and could look something simple like that up.
I know what you are trying to do you are waiting for someone to respond "they were put there by the devil" but that probably will not happen.

Dear Conspiracy Seekers,

It infers from the initial post that the poster's regular visitors are covering up a part of earth's historical past, namely the Jurassic Period. Indeed if any group were hiding the truth of history, make this not a conspiracy? Need the original post say the 'magic' word? Whistleblowers, put down thy whistle.

I believe the bible from Genesis-Revelations is speaking of man only. When man was Created. Or more accurately when the non-corrupted version of man was created.

When Cain killed his brother Abel, he was afraid that someone (not God) was going to kill him after he was banished forever more.

In the Book of Enoch (a gnostic non-canonized book) It speaks in more depth of the Nephilim. How The angels of heaven, lead by Satan (angelic name of Azazel), came upon the earth and mated with man kind creating Nephilim (Giants with 6 fingers on each hand and 6 toes respectively).

It is my belief that God then created Adam and Eve. They were free of the angelic taint. Then that is when Azazel (being jealous of Adam and Eve) decided to then tempt Eve with the Fruit of Good and Evil. She ate of it then so did Adam.

Therefore they were cast out of the Garden of Eden. Noah was the grandson of Enoch (who is mentioned briefly in Genesis), who was then commanded to create an Arc because God was going to rid the world of the taint of Angelic-Human hybrid (Nephilim). Noah, his sons, and sons wives being the only ones who kept to Gods word and was without taint.

My two cents excuse the rant

A better question is, "How do you get females to follow your sect, when it clearly states the 144,000 will be virgin males descended from the twelve tribes of Israel?"

That's one I'd like the answer to...nothing really in it for them....
