'Dragon' does not describe a dinosaur. It describes a big scaly creature to be sure, but not all dinosaurs are big nor scaly. Infact, the
descriptions of dragons don't appear to conform to any dinoaurs.
they are mentioned in the Bible,
All that is mentioend in the bible is a large 'leviathan' or 'bohemoth', not a dinosaur.
and literally every civilization on earth. the King of Babylon reported in his documents raisning dragons to pull his chariots,
He also reports dealing with his babylonian gods and that they are the creators of the world. That hardly makes either true.
dragons of the sea have been recorded in captains log books,
That hardly means that they exist. And, notably, dinosaurs were not aquatic. So whatever these captains were noting they wouldn't've been
in the 1700's US weather reports flocks of dragons moving different directions were reported, but the dragons werent important
Now you have moved into the realm of absurdity. You are actually contenting that dragons were flying in giant flocks across the american colonies(and
you do realize that the US didn't come into existence until the very end of that century) not so long ago but that they've just died out completely
and people just forgot about them entirely?
and in the Bible, only 2 kind of dino was broight on the ark, prolly only babys.
That is not what the bible says. it says that multiple representatives of every animal were taken, sometimes pairs sometimes more.
a dino is techinically a big lizrad type reptile,
A dinosaur is technically neither big, lizard like nor reptillian. There were smally dinosuars, there were dinosaurs that were nothing like lizards,
and there were dinosaurs that had anatomy and physiology that is nothing like any reptile.
the world wide flood killed em all
What world wide flood? There is no evidence for a global flood
, the dino, along with mans life long living shortened down to only 80 years present day, which before hand they lived for about 900
Actually its been noted in the 'why did people in the bible live so long' thread that these numbers probably refered to lunar months, and it ends up
working out to some old but reasonable ages. Besides, why would people's lifespan be reduced to a tenth of what it was after the flood?
they obviously dont get to big in just a few years, not not the thousand years old ones.
Actually the only studies on sauropod growth rates that I am aware of demonstrate rather reasonably that they grew extremely rapidly when they were
look into the Congo area, its unmapped, (the swamp) adn supposively has dino's living it.
The congo has been explored. There aren't populations of dinosuars running around in it, nor is there any reason to think that there is. Supposedly
the natives talk about a weird animal called mokele mbembe or something like tht living there. If odd reports without anything hard to back it up
are 'sufficient evidence' then, at least, a lot of other things would have to be held true.
