Re: Walking with Dinosaurs

My simple point is that they are found in the same rock strata as dinosaurs and still exist, so your logic that dinosaurs didn't co-exist with us because of their location as fossils is not a sound one.

Re: Walking with Dinosaurs

I wouldn't particularly want to live nextdoor to a sabretoothed tiger, yet there are human and Smilodon remains found in the same strata. Dinosaurs, by contrast, disappear from the fossil record long before humans (or any hominids for that matter) make their first appearance. Getting close to my li...

Re: Walking with Dinosaurs

The greek word "drakon" means snake. The Latin word Draco transliterates from the greek. Many of the quotes you provide here are simply speaking of serpents and not "dragons' in the sense you're hoping equates with dinosaurs. I've asked several times already, but it appears to be being passed over....

Re: Walking with Dinosaurs

St John Damascene, 8th CenturyAD "Some people contrive that dragons can both take the human form and turn into serpents, sometimes small, sometimes huge, differing in body length and size, and sometimes, as was already stated above, having turned into people, start to associate with them, appear to...

Re: Walking with Dinosaurs

Look at the behemoth, which I made along with you and which feeds on grass like an ox. Crocodile?? His snorting throws out flashes of light; his eyes are like the rays of dawn. Firebrands stream from his mouth; sparks of fire shoot out. Smoke pours from his nostrils as from a boiling pot over a fir...

Re: Walking with Dinosaurs

SOunds like a croc to me. Undersides in the mud, scales. Unless you know of a dinosaur that spews fire? Yes. Many dragon legends speak about fire. Here's a quote from 'Beowulf' - an old Anglo Saxon Poem: He could not enter for the dragon's flame. Beowulf was angry, the lord of the Geats, he who sto...

Re: Walking with Dinosaurs

I was interested that the article you refer to skips very lightly over the passages in Job. Not surprising really, as they become problematic to those who believe that these creatures died out. The fact is that the descriptions in Job are absolutely nothing like elephants and crocodiles! I would inv...

Re: Walking with Dinosaurs

What makes you think it more plausible that these references to mythical creatures are referring to dinosaurs of the past that people walked with as opposed to animals still alive today? How many animals that live today do you know that answer these descriptions? It is said they grow up more than t...

Re: Walking with Dinosaurs

Going to bed now. But I'll answer later. In the meantime, can you rephrase your second question - perhaps I'm not that bright, but I don't understand it! Further, what makes you believe that a belief in an old earth is necessitated by a "need" on the part of those holding the positions you disagree ...

Re: The coming evangelical collapse

The article is probably about right. The USA may end up looking something like much of Northern England today. Christians who take their faith seriously and have a truly Biblical worldview are as common as hens' teeth. The empty shells of big empty churches still fill bits of the skyline, but most h...

Walking with Dinosaurs

Evolutionists (and, it appears from this site, old earth creationists) claim that Dinosaurs died out long before we humans came on the scene. After all, if dinosaurs co-existed with us, there would be evidence wouldn't there? Surely there would be a bank of folk memories, drawings, paintings, book i...

Re: The Christmas Star

Here is another question for you.. Why is it that only the magi could see the star? Don't quite understand the question. Only the Magi followed the star because they had came to worship the Messiah Jesus as the King of the Jews and had the means and desire to do so. Maybe others saw it as well. My ...

Re: The Christmas Star

I believe everybody here is looking in the wrong place! I will make 2 points to begin with. 1. Astrology is always spoken of in negative terms in scripture. See the very good article on this website. http://www.godandscience.org/doctrine/astrology.html#fGIZhKsymzeq Why would God use Astrology to poi...

Re: Kirk Cameron on a crusade to debunk evolution

Indeed Zoegirl. Way of the Masters then takes these faulty conclusions and forces them on the newly converted. Needless to say, many cannot accept such foolishness and just walk away saying to themselves "what was I thinking? Fred Flinstone never existed." I find their approach reckless and dangero...

Re: Please Introduce Yourself Here

I want to tell you how much I appreciate this very comprehensive site. I'm from pagan England (I'm serious - where I live, Christians who believe in the authority of scripture are nearly extinct). There is a wealth of very useful material on here and I intend to use the site in future. Many thanks t...
