SPF 088: Dinosaur Questions Answered - Part 2

How did the fit on the ark? How did the dinosaurs become extinct?  Are we sure that dinosaur bones are not millions of years old? Answers to these questions reveal a worldview that impacts other areas of belief. Scientist Jonathan Sarfati taught me a lot about dinosaurs at a recent conference and I’m sharing a few Dino facts that make sense through the lens of the most accurate history book we will ever have.

Dinosaur Questions Answered - Part 2

Were the dinosaurs on the ark?

  • According to Genesis 6 two of every kind of animal went aboard the ark

How did the dinosaurs fit on the ark?

  • The arc was huge. 
  • 450 long
  • 75 feet wide
  • 45 feet tall
  • Imagine 6 semi trucks wide for 1/2 a mile standing at four stories tall
  • It was a sea worthy vessel and could not capsize 
  • Page 243
  • Only about 55 kinds
  • Dinosaurs didn’t have to be fully grown
  • Most dinosaurs were relatively small

Why aren’t humans buried with dinosaurs if they were alive during the same time?

  • Evolutionists claim the order of the fossil record (trilobites at the bottom, humans at the top) is due to a succession of life-forms on Earth, which occurred over many hundreds of millions of years
  • But since Fossils are a record of death, creationists believe that most of these fossils and their subsequent order were formed by the year long global flood
  • Consider order of death during the flood
  • With the flood starting with the fountains of the great deep sedentary sea creatures would be buried first, then swimming sea life, 
  • And as flood waters rose, shore river animals and plants
  • Then small mammals, amphibians, dinosaurs, low land forests
  • And last, large mammals, birds, and upland forests

How did the dinosaurs become extinct?

  • Many died in the flood
  • The rest died out through illness or at the hand of men
