8. Frequently asked questions
1. Where do dinosaurs fit in the Bible record?
There is no doubt that dinosaurs once existed on the earth. The facts of the fossil records show that. But that is the only fact we have about them. As all dating methods contain untestable assumptions, we cannot be sure when they existed. There is no mention of these animals in the Bible record.
There are places in the Bible record where they could fit in, but we are given no facts in the Bible.
It is the opinion of some that they existed before the time referred to in Genesis 1 verse 1 when the present order of things came into being. Others are of the opinion that they lived before the flood of Noah's time and were destroyed in Noah's flood.
2. Where do the fossils fit in the Bible record?
Like the dinosaurs, the animals in the fossil record could have occurred in an era before our own or could have been wiped out in the chaos that would have occurred in the flood of Noah's time.
