Under God's Right Arm: Pesky Dinosaurs
By: Colson Crosslick

It’s amazing that in this day and age of allegedly enlightened people that there are still large pockets of the population that believe that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. This is one of the grand lies perpetuated by evolutionists who insist on the silly notion that the earth is several hundred million years old and that dinosaurs once ruled a world without human beings.

Obviously, these scientists – and I use the word lightly – have never read the Holy Bible. A careful study of God’s words in the Bible proves that the earth is only a few thousand years old, most likely just 6,000 years old. We’re a young planet!

That means, of course, that dinosaurs walked the earth with human beings. God created all living creatures on the sixth day, according to the Old Testament. The text is quite clear:

“And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.” (Genesis 1:24-25)

It is amazing how scientists have been duped by the mad ramblings of one man -- Charles Darwin -- and his theory (a theory mind you!) about evolution. The entire concept of natural selection is so ludicrous that it’s amazing that anyone takes it seriously. Yet most schools teach evolution and reject the sound science of creationism. In fact, evolution is the foundation of modern biology!

How bizarre given that we possess the greatest scientific manual on the planet – the Holy Bible. The Bible gives us a matter-of-fact, rational, and wholly undisputed explanation directly from God on the how the world was created. It isn’t complicated. God made the world.

I’m a student of intellect (and have several degrees from unaccredited Christian Universities) so this is easy for me. I’ve studied biology, astrology, chemistry and teratology in college. But even a child can understand the simplicity of creationism compared to the overly complicated and unlikely “science” of evolution. What is more rational in your mind?

  1. All the plants and animals in the world were developed through an evolutionary process where individual organisms struggle to survive and those with the best or most favorable characteristics for their environment will be more likely to survive. As a result, those favorable traits will be passed onto their offspring and become the dominant characteristics among organisms.


  1. An omnipotent, omnipresent God designed our universe, planets, plants, animals and human beings in six days.

Most rational thinking people automatically choose “B” because it is easier to understand. Remember the phrase your mother used to tell you when you were a kid? KISS. Keep It Simple Stupid.

Evolutionary scientists stumble all over each other like circus clowns trying to make the concept of creation overly complicated. Let them live in their land of delusions! The enlightened know better.

So let’s return to the subject of dinosaurs. Our evolutionary scientists like to claim that human beings and dinosaurs never walked the earth together. False! How do we know this? The Bible, of course!

“Look at the behemoth, which I made along with you and which feeds on grass like an ox. What strength he has in his loins, what power in the muscles of his belly! His tail sways like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are close-knit. His bones are tubes of bronze, his limbs like rods of iron.” (Job 40: 15-18)

What is being described here – the behemoth – is a dinosaur! The word “dragon” is also found in the Old Testament and what is a dragon to the ancients is nothing less than a dinosaur in today’s parlance.

So what happened to these mighty reptiles? Most of them were destroyed when God flooded the earth. Noah saved pairs of animals – dinosaurs among them (I know what you’re thinking – how could dinosaurs fit on the ark? But it’s simple really – Noah took pairs of baby dinosaurs with him).

The flood and the mud that came with it buried the other dinosaurs (this is why we discover their bones as fossils). The survivors from Noah's Ark didn’t fare so well and they died out – probably due to the new conditions of the world after the great flood. Extinction is a fact of life – just ask the Woolly Mammoth and the Dodo Bird!

Oops, you can’t! They’re extinct! Just like the dinosaurs.

Non-believers like to point to dinosaurs as evidence that Creationism is wrong. Now you have the facts to argue against the ridiculous notion that dinosaurs once ruled the planet millions of years ago. You can also tell any non-believers that they’re going to go the route of the dinosaur if they don’t begin to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior.

Maybe if the dinosaurs did so they would be around today.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16)
