When Did Dinosaurs Live?

Evolutionists claim dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. But it is important to realize that when they dig up a dinosaur bone it does not have a label attached showing its date. The Bible states that God made the land animals, including dinosaurs, on Day Six (Genesis 1:24–25), so they date from around 6,000 years ago.

Dinosaurs and Men Together

According to the Bible, humans and dinosaurs originally lived at the same time; they were not separated by millions of years. There are many biblical and extrabiblical clues that humans continued to have first-hand knowledge of dinosaurs after the Flood. The Bible mentions several large, mysterious animals.

Dinosaurs and the Age of the Earth

When someone finds a dinosaur bone, he gauges the depth of the bone in the sedimentary layers and then uses the date that is assigned to that depth. As Christians, we look at this same evidence: dinosaurs and the depth at which their bones are buried. Then we look at the biblical explanation of the geologic layers.
