I saw this article on Facebook today, posted by one of my more radical Christian friends. It is supposed to explain how dinosaurs coexisted with
humans. I have no problems with religion, I could care less what people believe, BUT that being said, when I see things like this it makes me realize
the brainwashing Chistains recieve, and im sure this happens in the other religions as well.
The article is shown here:
What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs?
In the article, I found many things that went against everything I believe and I would say it goes against what a majority of the members on ATS
believe. Of these things what I found most interesting is shown here:
According to the Bible: Dinosaurs first existed around 6,000 years ago.3 God
made the dinosaurs, along with the other land animals, on Day 6 of the Creation Week (Genesis 1:20–25, 31). Adam and Eve were also made on Day
6—so dinosaurs lived at the same time as people, not separated by eons of time.
Gen 1:25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground
according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
Gen 1:26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the
livestock, over all the earth, [fn] and over all the creatures that move along the ground."
As you can see they were both created on the same "day", but not at the same time. If each day is not a literal 24 hour period the bible in way is
contradicted by dinosaurs being around long, long before man.
That is a red flag right there. It claims that its only been 6,000 years since they roamed the Earth, I'll just stick to the obvious here, we
have so many sites that predate that number! One of the most well known of these I think is
The site isn't just old, it redefines old:
the temple was built 11,500 years ago—a staggering 7,000 years before the Great Pyramid, and more than 6,000 years before Stonehenge first took
This is based on a literal 24 hour day interpretation as well.
Another interesting statement made in the article is this:
After the Flood, around 4,300 years ago, the remnant of the land animals, including
dinosaurs, came off the Ark and lived in the present world, along with people. Because of sin, the judgments of the Curse and the Flood have greatly
changed earth. Post-Flood climatic change, lack of food, disease, and man’s activities caused many types of animals to become extinct. The
dinosaurs, like many other creatures, died out. Why the big mystery about dinosaurs?
I dont think I have to further elaborate on the misguided words of this article, but that is just my opinion and to each his own. I just had to vent
my frustration from reading this
Many people have misguided interpretations of things, religious and non-religious. However I leave you with this.
They may be wrong, but they are still right. Remember that before you ridicule someone for something, you may end up looking the fool
