Dinosaur Bones

After a long heated discussion with Steve on many occasions about dinosaurs, I was just wondering what other peoples thoughts on the subject are: Did they exist? If not where do their bones come from? If they did where do they fit in with the Bible and its timeline?

Apologies for tardy answer, research required.

Check out Job 40 15 to 41 34. Ask yourself what sort of animal is being described. Then ask yourself how Job knew about this sort of animal which evolutionists say disappeared long before man existed.

Creationists believe that God created everything – including the creatures we now call “Dinosaurs”.

As the word “Dinosaur” wasn’t coined till the 1800s, what were creatures of this nature called before that? The Bible words used are Dragon (KJV – meaning “large creature with nasty teeth”), Leviathan and Behemoth.
