Dinosaurs -- on Noah’s Ark?


Part 8



This is Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis , and the popular Creation Museum.


Many people wonder about dinosaurs, the ark, and Noah’s flood. Were dinosaurs on the ark? Well, the answer is yes!

You see, the Bible tells us two of every kind of land-dwelling, air-breathing animal were on the ark. And that description includes dinosaurs.

But would they fit on the ark?

Well, keep a few things in mind. First, the ark was a huge ship. Second, most dinosaurs weren’t huge. The average size of a dinosaur is about the size of a buffalo, and some were even as small as chickens! Lastly, even the biggest dinosaurs started out small. God probably brought so-called “teenagers” to Noah to take on the ark with him.

So could Noah fit the dinosaurs on the ark? Absolutely!
