We often hear that dinosaurs died out millions of years ago. But that’s not true. God’s Word, the Bible, tells us something totally different.

It’s NOT a big mystery. Dinosaurs were created about 6,000 years ago on Day 6 with the other land animals AND with people. Yes, dinosaurs and humans lived together (Genesis 1:20–25, 31).

The sauropods were the largest dinosaurs ever discovered. They weighed up to 100 tons (91 m. tons), were up to 138 ft. (42 m) tall, and shook the ground as they wandered over the earth looking for plants to munch on.


The dinosaur fossils we find today formed during Noah’s Flood, or its after effects.

In the Bible?

Yes! The word “dragon” is used in the Bible, and it may describe dinosaurs. Look up Isaiah 27:1 (KJV) & Malachi 1:3 (KJV).

On the Ark?

Yes! Dinosaurs were on Noah’s Ark. God sent at least two of each air-breathing, land-dwelling animal (Genesis 7:2).
