Evidence Dinosaurs Lived With Man (and yes, went on Noah's Ark)
By Bob Dutko
The mere mention of dinosaurs on Noah's Ark or dinosaurs living with man in recent times, let alone dinosaurs in the Bible will draw giggles from evolution believing people, but what if there is actual historic, scientific and even eyewitness evidence for this? The fact is that more and more evidence continues to be uncovered proving everything we've been taught about dinosaurs is wrong. As more of this evidence comes out, the evolutionists won't be able to keep it censored from the text books science journals for much longer.
Dinosaurs have been documented in history by eyewitnesses such as Marco Polo, Herodotus and Alexander the Great. There exists today dozens of cave drawings, mosaics, sculptures and paintings of dinosaurs from ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Cambodia, Europe, Austrailia , North America and all over the Earth. These exist today and you can go see them. In the Top Ten Proofs Dinosaurs Lived with Man audio CD, we document exactly where they are as well as document the existence of completely fresh, non-fossilized dinosaur bones.
Unfortunately, we have been so conditioned to believe that dinosaurs are these prehistoric beasts that lived until 65 million years ago, that if you dare suggest they went on Noah's Ark, then eventually went extinct just recently, you are laughed at for following fables instead of science. But remember, the evolutionary scientists need to convince you dinosaurs lived long before man so they can continue to sell their evolutionary theory. If dinosaurs were alive in just the last few thousand years, Darwin's Theory of Evolution goes out the window, so let's examine some little known facts about dinosaurs.
First, dinosaurs were nothing more than reptiles that continued to grow in size. Most people are unaware of the fact that reptiles never stop growing in size while alive. As humans, we know that our noses and ears never stop growing, but the rest of us does. Same with mammals and most of the animal kingdom. They grow to a certain size, then stop growing. While they do get older, they don't get any bigger. This is not true, however, with reptiles, as reptiles continue to grow in size until the day they die. That's why when you see a tortoise that has lived for 100+ years, it gets to be the size of a bathtub. If a tortoise could live for 500 years, it would literally grow to be the size of a garage and would be considered nothing more than one of the many unique types of dinosaur.
When we look at dinosaurs, we need to realize that they are nothing more than different types of reptiles, lizards, etc., that continued to grow in size for as long as God allowed them to live. If we remember, the Bible says that before Noah's flood, man lived to be hundreds of years old. Methuselah lived to be 969 years old. It was after the flood that God shortened the life span of man. If God allowed man to live several hundred years, it is very plausible to believe he may have allowed animals to live that long too. Remember, we know today that reptiles never stop growing in size throughout their lifetime, so think about what a Gecko or a Komodo Dragon might look like if it lived for 500 years. Can you say “dinosaur”?
Dinosaurs on Noah's Ark is actually a much simpler prospect than people assume. First, the fossil record confirms that very few dinosaurs were large in size. Of course, while there were a handful of dinosaurs types that grew to the large size of Tyrannosaurus Rex or Brachiosaurus, the fossil record itself confirms the overwhelming majority of dinosaurs were about the size of a sheep, approximately 3 to 5 feet in length. The fossils of the giant dinosaurs are certainly more fun to look at in the museums, but the fact is that most dinosaurs were small and only a few grew to large sizes. So, for most dinosaurs, getting on the Ark wouldn't be a problem at all, and as for the occasional larger type of dinosaur, God would have merely sent babies to Noah. Think about it. When God sent 2 elephants to Noah, do you really think God would have sent 2 full grown, massive, 12 foot tall, 5 ton elephants that are past their reproductive prime, or do you think maybe he would have sent a couple of babies that would eventually grow and repopulate the Earth after the flood? Common sense dictates he would have sent baby elephants, Rhinos, Giraffes, etc., as well as a couple of cute little baby Tyrannosaurus lizards, that, just like cute little lion cubs, would eventually one day grow into fierce and dangerous beasts.
The evidence that dinosaurs lived with man in recent history is staggering and overwhelming due to the countless artifacts, drawings, carvings, statues, mosaics and depictions throughout history of Brachiosaurus, Stegosaurus, Plesiosaur, Pterodactyl, Triceratops, T-rex and more. If man didn't live with these creatures, how did artists throughout ancient history and in cultures all over the world happen to re-create these beasts, thousands of years ago, to “coincidentally” look identical to what we see in the dinosaur books and museums today? Some may say “well, they must have seen dinosaur skeletons back then too”. Not so. Here's why.
Dinosaur skeletons aren't found just lying on the ground intact, so someone walking by can look down and see what the dinosaur looked like. The bones are separated, fragmented and embedded deep within the ground, mountains and rock with most of them missing. Occasionally, you might find a piece of a single bone sticking out of a rock here or there, but that's pretty much all we find today. Logic dicates that's all anyone in ancient history would ever have found as well. They would not have been able to create the image of the entire beast without the entire skeleton, yet the science of Paleontology did not develop until the early 1800's. The process of digging out and excavating dinosaur bones from rock didn't begin until then. Consequently, the first complete skeleton of a dinosaur was not constructed until the 1800's.
In 1841, British Anatomist Richard Owen coined a brand new word..... “dinosaur”, from the Greek “deinos”, meaning great or terrible.....and “sauros” meaning lizard. Before 1841 the word “dinosaur” didn't exist. That doesn't mean dinosaurs didn't exist, it just means these giant reptilian creatures weren't called “dinosaurs”. They were called dragons, and dragon sightings have been documented and recorded throughout history by eyewitnesses and have been a part of legend in cultures all over the Earth from England to China. There are even more than 20 references to dinosaurs in the Bible, but of course they're not called “dinosaurs”, as the word did not exist yet. They were called dragons and the Bible even gives detailed descriptions of dinosaurs in various places.
So how did people 2000-3000 years ago know exactly what dinosaurs looked like? There's really only 2 options. Either they saw the dinosaurs with their own eyes, or they constructed the skeletons. There's really not a third option, so let's explore this logically. To think civilizations throughout history knew exactly what dinosaurs looked like in detail by somehow seeing complete dinosaur skeletons is just not logical. Remember, the first skeleton was not even put together until the 1800's and secondly, there are just not that many dinosaur skeletons. Paleontologist Dr. Kurt Wise, with a Ph.D. in Geology from Harvard University confirms that only 0.0025% of the entire fossil record consists of more than a single bone of vertebrate animals. After nearly 200 years of Paleontology, we have been able to come up with justvery few fossils of large dinosaurs.There is absolutely no evidence in history of previous civilizations digging and excavating bones, let alone creating entire skeletons. At best, someone in history might find an occasional large bone shard in the ground and surmise it belonged to some “big animal”, but it's illogical to believe they could, with their imagination, guess exactly what a Tyrannosaurus looked like, or a Stegasaurus, a Brachiasaurus, a Triceratops, or any of the other dinosaurs that have been identically depicted in artwork, cave drawings, sculptures, mosaics and writings throughout history from many different cultures.
You really need to ask yourself, if dinosaurs died out 65 million years before modern man “evolved”, and the first dinosaur skeleton was not excavated and constructed until the early 1800's, how did human artwork throughout history manage to depict several types of dinosaurs that look identical to the dinosaur depictions we see in the science books today? The answer is simple. They drew what they saw with their own eyes. You can get a lot more information in the Top Ten Proofs Dinosaurs Lived with Man. The fact is that although we have been conditioned to believe dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago, science, history and logic actually shows dinosaurs lived with man, there were, in fact, dinosaurs in the Bible and the concept of dinosaurs on Noah's Ark is just not that crazy after all.
