Since you have decided to ignore my request for an explanation as to why you think that the dinosaur fossils are an elaborate hoax, and why you think
that this is the simplest explanation (which it is not), I shall lay out the two possible theories you have presented.
Creation Theory (ie No Dinosaurs)
~6000 years ago, God created the Earth in a seven-day period. He created misleading geographic features, such as stratification, with the supposed
intent to make his future creations believe that the Earth had existed for a much longer period than it actually had. The purpose for this action is,
supposedly, to intentionally decieve humans to test their faith. Those who have absolute faith in God (as he is described in a specific 2000 year old
book) would shun any alternative explanations of the Earth's age and formation, and in doing so would be granted eternal life. Those who are capable
of critical thinking would be banished to hell for eternity since their intellect is offensive to their creator.
God then created two humans, Adam and Eve, who then populated the entire world. After a few generations God wiped out the entire human population with
a great flood, except for Noah and his three sons, who then repopulated the earth once again. During the time of the Roman Empire, God sent his own
son, who is actually God but not God at the same time, to Earth to die in a blood sacrifice to save humanity from its sinful nature which is inherent
due to a mistake made by God back in the days of Adam and Eve...but this doesn't really have any bearing on this discussion.
At some point in the last 6000 years, God fabricated skeletons of large lizards, making them seem older than the entire universe that he had created,
with the sole intent of decieving humans to send them to hell. In spite of his supposed loving nature, God wants everyone who isn't a blind sheep to
The Logical Alternative
~14 billion years ago, the universe supposedly expanded from a singularity. Subatomic particles under intense heat and pressure fused together to form
basic elements, which gathered to in massive amounts to form stars. Aging stars explode releasing chunks of matter, which get caught in the gravity of
new stars, and thus solar systems are formed. With the proper combination of elements and a nearby star, a planet can produce life, and thus the Earth
gave birth to microbial life, then plants and sea creatures, then creatures of the air and land, and finally sentient life; Humans.
Humans, being superstitious and primitive at the time, invented the idea of an angry, jealous God that wants everyone to believe in him without
question. They invented different sets of rules and when these rules disagreed with eachother there was much bloodshed. They sometimes claimed that
God was intentionally trying to trick them to test their faith, but in reality this was a deception in itself to inhibit the growth of knowlege and
keep the people subservient to dogma.
In recent history, humans have moved away from the dogma and have made a series of observations and discoveries which give us an estimation of the
actual age of our world and the universe. Among these discoveries are the bones of ancient creatures who existed between 230 million and 65 million
Of course, many humans still cling to the old ways of thinking and claim that all the overwhelming evidence is merely a fabrication to mislead us and
send us to a fiery burning pit for eternity. What these humans don't realise is that these discoveries in no way disprove the existence of a divine
creator, but they do help to discredit a 2000 year old book written in his name. They fear the loss of their traditional beliefs, because they fear
that they do not really know why they are here and what created them. This fear is effectively restrained by an overriding faith (ie blind trust)
which is derived from their book, which is why they defend it with such fervor.
