      Again, unless our comprehension agrees in the literal 7 day creation, then we're fine.

      I guess that's a real conundrum for those that might worry about it. But I'll leave that to Ken Ham.

      There is very compelling evidence that dinosaurs as we think of them (their lineal descendents the birds not withstanding) went extinct some 65 million years ago, some 61 million years before the earliest hominids show up in the fossil record, so it is quite unreasonable to ignore all the evidence and say that humans and dinosaurs ever coexisted.

      not if we believe God -to believe mans theories we must cast off belief in the word of God .

      If you have ever heard of the gap theory it blends it all very nicely and allows for both sides to be right

      Well, we all have the choice...do we believe a vast mountain of compelling evidence points to the truth, or do we ignore all that and choose to believe what a tiny minority of Christians (young Earth creationists) believe.

      I choose to believe the bible and if you would look at the gap theory you might see something you could agree with. It is simply that there is a gap of time between verse 1 and verse 2 of Genesis

      I have never read anything in the Bible that would lead me to believe the writers had any idea whatsoever about dinosaurs.

      there isnt one .. Gods word is true -or it is not . gap is only a theory .. and what are the theories origins ? the revelation of the Holy Spirit ..or the carnal; fallen sinful mind of mankind ?

      are dinosaurs in the bible .. very clearly .
