Dinosaurs (Part 3)

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 Great entered India, he found huge reptiles kept in cages in approximately 330 B.C. The Chinese are well known for their dragon stories, and they feature dragons prominently in their artwork. In England, St. George killed a dragon that lived in a cave in the 1300’s. An Italian peasant named Baptista killed a dragon whose description fits that of a small dinosaur called a tanystropheus near Bologna, Italy on May 13, 1572. Mammoths and flying reptiles like pterosaurs have been carved on stone in the southwestern parts of America, and the Ica stones of Peru feature T. rex and triceratops.

Furthermore, there are sightings even today of large lizards in remote jungles in the parts of the world. As an example, natives as well as explorers have seen mokele-mbembe in the Congo of Africa:

Biologist Marcellin Agnagna is another trained scientist who officially reported seeing Mokele-mbembe. He said that on May 1, 1983, he and members of his party came across a Mokele-mbembe in the Congo’s remote Lake Tele.12 It had a wide back, a long neck, and a small head. The front of it was brown, and its back appeared black. It was in the shallow water of the lake, and the length visible above the waterline was about five metres (16 feet).

In December 1999, Papua New Guinea’s The Independent newspaper reported a “dinosaur-like reptile” seen twice in the Lake Murray area. The creature was described as having a body as “long as a dump truck,” nearly two meters wide, with a long neck and slender tail. It walked on two back legs that were as thick as “coconut palm tree trunks” and had two smaller forelegs. The head was shaped like a cow and it had large eyes and “sharp teeth as long as fingers.” The skin was like a crocodile and it had triangular scoops on its back. So much for the idea that dinosaurs became extinct 65 million years ago! Humans and dinosaurs have lived together since the sixth day of Creation. Once again the evidence fits the biblical worldview map so we can make sense of reality!
