What Happened to the Dinosaurs?

Seeing Dinosaurs Through the Lens of Scripture

Part 4



This is Ken Ham, author and speaker on why we can trust the Bible.


There is a lot of secular ideas for why the dinosaurs went extinct: an asteroid impact, overeating, and some say starvation. Also: indigestion, climate change, and others are suggested.

But the Bible gives us the proper framework for understanding their extinction.

When the dinosaurs got off the Ark after the global Flood, they entered a radically different world. It was filled with new challenges. Then the Flood was followed by an Ice Age, which radically changed the climate. And, of course, hunting by humans a likely factor too, now that humans had been told they could eat meat.

Dinosaurs went extinct for the same reasons creatures go extinct today—changing climates and so on.
