      Birds are dinosaurs and I reckon some birds are mentioned in the bible so yes, dinosaurs are in the bible
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      absolutely YES .. the term dinosaur is a very young terminology for the beasts .
      and the beasts in the book of Job are without doubt such beasts also known through out the ages as dragons of varying type .

      the carvings on the temples in Asia dating back only 1600 years depict whats now called the stegosaurus and there is ever growing evidence of their coexistence with man who has ,as with so very many of the larger animals ,hunted them to extinction ,where natural disaster did not do so.

      its easily searched under stegosaurus carvings on Cambodian temple pillars. of course evolutionists will say its not and creationist will say it is . so it comes down to a question of whom ones faith is truthfully founded in .. man - or God .
      in regard to the other beasts .. the book of job declares God speaking of these beasts and he say of them .. "which i made along with man " so if god declares that he made these beats along with man and the world says otherwise .. we again are faced with the question of whom our faith is in and whom we believe .. man - or God .

      This assumes that all Christians are "young earth" creationists. Science and creationism are not necessarily at odds all the time.

      in regard to the other beasts .. the book of job declares God speaking of these beasts and he say of them .. "which i made along with man " so if god declares that he made these beats along with man and the world says otherwise .. we again are faced with the question of whom our faith is in and whom we believe .. man - or God .
      Again, we have to assume (based on this view of things) that "along with" means "at the same time as". It's reading meaning into something that may not be there. If I say that "various fruit trees can produce apples, along with oranges and bananas", then the context changes. It's not saying apples, oranges, and bananas grow on the same tree, it depends on the "various" qualifier.
      I can't stop the world from turning around, or the pull of the moon on the tide...
      But I don't believe that we're in this alone, I believe we're along for the ride..

      lol no ..it assumes we .. as children believe Gods word without attempting to stuff the infinite majesty and power of God it into the confines of our meager flawed intellects .
      if we can not take God at his word -literally ,( especially where it is beyond our comprehension which involves faith ,without which it is impossible to please god ) when he states a thing in his word .. then how can we truly be saved ? because if we cannot take him at his word in one thing he says then how can we take him at his word truthfully in anything he says .
