Sharp Teeth Eating Plants?

Seeing Dinosaurs Through the Lens of Scripture

by Ken Ham on November 14, 2017

Part 2



This is Ken Ham, author of the eye-opening book Six Days and Church Compromise.


Yesterday, we learned that dinosaurs were created on Day Six of Creation Week, the same day as Adam and Eve. Now, this means that dinosaurs and man once lived together. But wouldn’t fierce dinosaurs—like T. rex—have terrorized the Garden of Eden?

Genesis chapter 1 tells us that, originally, people and animals were created vegetarian. God gave them the plants to eat. This means that T. rex would have been snacking on fruit and plants.

But what about those huge teeth?

Just because something has big teeth doesn’t mean it eats meat. We see that today: fruit bats and monkeys eat grass.

It wasn’t until after sin that many animals ate meat.
