“Then God said, ‘Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind’; and it was so . . . So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.” (Genesis 1:24, 31)

Most TV programs, movies, and books portray dinosaurs as having died out 65 million years ago. We know from the history of the Bible that dinosaurs were made on Day Six of the Creation Week about 6,000 years ago. Dinosaurs could not have gone extinct millions of years ago because Earth isn’t that old! Since the Bible is true, we should expect the evidence to support the Bible—and this is exactly what we find. A scientist named Dr. Mary Schweitzer has discovered soft tissue, such as blood vessels, in a T. rex bone! Soft tissue does not last millions of years; it should all have decayed away. But Dr. Schweitzer found it in a dinosaur bone. Scientists’ belief in evolution and long ages makes them wonder, “How can soft tissue survive for millions of years?” The question they should be asking is, “Are these dinosaur bones really millions of years old?” The answer is no! Dinosaurs are a recent creation, made by God just 6,000 years ago, and most were buried in the Flood just 4,300 years ago.
