Old-earth proponents often argue that if man and dinosaurs lived at the same time, their fossils should be found in the same layers. Biblical creationists believe that man and dinosaurs lived at the same time because God said that He created man and land animals on Day Six. Why don’t we find human fossils with dinosaur fossils?
The Bible states that two of every kind of land animal and seven of some went onto the Ark. Some skeptics ask, “How could two of every kind of dinosaur fit on the Ark?” If dinosaurs sailed on the Ark, where are they today?
There are many references to historical evidence of dinosaurs and man living together, such as the petroglyph in Natural Bridges, Utah, legends and stories of dragons in Europe, and use of the dragon motif by the Chinese. But one striking physical in Asia is the bas-relief picture of a dinosaur in the ruins of Angkor outside of Siem Reap, Cambodia.
According to evolutionary time, crocodiles have been around since the time of the dinosaurs—and yet, humans live with crocodiles today. So why is it ridiculous to think humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time?
Was there ever an advanced civilization on earth before humans? That’s the “thought experiment” being posed in an article published by two astrophysicists.
Tim Chaffey, AiG–U.S., responds to yet another hostile reader, who takes particular offense to the idea that dinosaurs and humans coexisted.
Yes, dinosaurs and humans co-existed—but not in the Lotus Mountain Fortress.
The evidence that humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time is all around us. As Bodie Hodge, AiG–U.S., points out, it’s the same evidence that evolutionists have staring them in the face.
Creationists don’t claim that dinosaurs are still alive today. But because we believe at least two of each dinosaur kind survived Noah’s Flood (i.e., were on the Ark), we view the possibility as distinctly more likely than evolutionists.
It has long been stated that since human and dinosaur fossils are not found together, therefore they did not coexist. Bodie Hodge takes issue with this fallacy.
Bodie Hodge answers a reader’s question concerning the fossil record.
If human bones aren't found buried with dinosaur bones, it simply means they weren't buried together
There are many references in creationist literature to historical evidence of dinosaurs and man living together. But one striking physical and historical evidence in Asia is rarely mentioned: the bas-relief picture of a dinosaur in the ruins of Angkor outside of Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Australian Aborigines have stories of encounters with huge, sometimes frightening monsters which range from what sound like dinosaurs to giant marsupials, also believed to have long become extinct.
The monstrous creature was obviously a vegetarian, but its size was overwhelming. Its hips were built to withstand the enormous force of each pounding step and its midsection was a mass of muscle.
In 1919, rumours abound about a large animal seen in the interior of the Congo, in Africa.
