At the risk of opening up an giant-sized can of worms, today I'm addressing the topic of prehistoric man and the dinosaur age. There are a lot of theories on this subject, from the evolution of man, on up to dinosaurs being created right along with Adam, somewhere around six thousand years ago. Some are a bit of a stretch, while others sport some credibility. I'd like to share with you an idea that's not new, but not extremely widespread either. What, you may ask, does this have to do with the Bible? Ha! Glad you asked.nnFirst of all, ancient man and his prehistoric creatures did, in fact, exist. It's hard to deny the existance of such creatures, while gazing into the lifeless and empty eye sockets of a dinosaur skeleton. In addition to dinosaur bones, we also have dinosaur fossils. We have evidence carved in stone of what we call the "cave man." It's important to acknowledge their existence, because to say they never walked the earth would be ridiculous in light of the evidence. The dinosaur skeleton is proof of its being!nnAt the same time, it's just as ludicrous to think that prehistoric man (and the dinosaurs he shared the earth with) lived at the same time that Adam did... that there's some sort of flaw in the scientific measuring of the times gone by. First of all, one would think that somewhere in the Bible... assuming that the men of Adam's time shared the earth with the cave man... somewhere they would have been mentioned by someone.nnSecondly, it's universally accepted that the people and creatures of the prehistoric age were rendered extinct by what we generally call the "Ice Age." Assuming that's true, and there's no reason to disbelieve it, then Adam and the rest of mankind (along with all the creatures of our time) would have perished, as well.nnSo, we are left with the choice of believing science, which claims they existed and provides the evidence of such... or believing the Bible, which provides little evidence at all on the surface. The truth, however, lies somewhere in between. If we can't reconcile the Bible to the known and proven existence of the prehistoric age, for instance, how can we reconcile it to our own time? To our own needs? To our very salvation, even?nnTo read more on this topic, please click the link below.
