When Were Dinosaurs Created?

Seeing Dinosaurs Through the Lens of Scripture

Part 1



This is Ken Ham, on a mission to call the church back to God’s Word and the gospel.


If you were asked, “Where did dinosaurs come from?” would you know the answer? Well, it is not a hard question if we use the Bible as our starting point.

Genesis chapter 1 says God created all the land animals on Day Six of Creation Week. Dinosaurs, by definition, are land animals. So they must have been created on Day Six, the same day as Adam.

Now, adding up the genealogies in Genesis, we know that there were two thousand years from Adam to Abraham. And we know it has been four thousand years since Abraham. So dinosaurs were created around six thousand years ago, with the rest of creation.

Dinosaurs are only a mystery if we ignore God’s Word. Tune in this week for answers.
