Are there dinosaur sightings in historical times?

Even after losing most dinosaurs in the Flood, these awesome animals were not extinct. Some survived from the Ark and eventually were the source of dragon legends that we read about today. In the Sumerian story of Gilgamesh, dating to around 2000 B.C., the hero killed a dragon found in a forest. As Alexander the [&hellip

What happened to the dinosaurs?

Following the Flood, the world was dramatically changed. The Ice Age was a period of glacial activity that covered approximately 30 percent of the earth; today about ten percent is covered with ice. After the Flood, it took approximately 500 years to cover the land with ice and another 200 years to melt the ice [&hellip

Did God create dinosaurs?

Dinosaurs are a source of interest as well as confusion. Whether you like Jurassic Park or not, you need to know how they fit into a biblical worldview. First, you need to know some background about the word “dinosaur.” Sir Richard Owen, the most distinguished zoologist in Britain during the mid-19th century, was the first [&hellip

Evidence of the Flood (Part 4)

A fourth geologic evidence for the Flood is that rock layers were laid down in quick succession with rapid or no erosion between the layers. In contrast, the dominant view today is that slow and gradual processes required hundreds of millions of years to deposit all the rock layers. If that were true, you’d expect [&hellip

Evidence of the Flood (Part 3)

A third geologic evidence for the Flood is that sediment layers, sometimes miles deep, are spread across vast areas and deposited rapidly. One example is the famous Grand Canyon in Arizona. The rock layers exposed in the canyon walls belong to six very thick, distinctive sequences of sedimentary rock layers that can be traced across [&hellip

Evidence of the Flood (Part 2)

A second geologic evidence for the Flood was the rapid burial of billions of plants and animals all over the planet. This is what you would expect to find in a global catastrophe such as the Flood. Now, how do you make a fossil?  In order to produce a fossil you need a quick burial, [&hellip

Evidence of the Flood (Part 1)

There are four main geologic evidences for the Flood. First, fossils of sea creatures are found high above sea level on every continent. Amazingly, even the Himalayas of Nepal, with the highest mountain in the world, Mount Everest, have marine fossils there. Why is that? Because Mount Everest, like all other land masses, was under [&hellip

Where did the “races” come from?

If the Bible’s Flood account is true, and only eight people survived the Flood, how did mankind originate from Noah’s family? Or some will say it this way: how did we get all the “races”? Actually, there is only one race—the human race. The different groups of people are classified that way by skin color [&hellip

The Flood and the Rainbow Promise

When it comes to the Bible’s Flood account, the idea of the Ark floating on a planet totally submerged is the biggest objection people have. Usually skeptics will say that Noah’s flood was local in scope, limited to only his part of the world. However, if that were true, there would have been no need for [&hellip

How big was Noah’s Ark?

Children’s books and toys of Noah’s Ark often lead to another objection about the truthfulness of the Flood—how did all the animals fit in there? Genesis 6:15-16 gives us the dimension; it was 450 feet long by 75 feet wide by 45 feet high. So imagine a four story building that is one and one-half [&hellip
