Most people have seen the Jurassic Park movies or have read the books. But these stories are fictional stories about dinosaurs being cloned and put in a zoo type setting for people to see until a mishap takes place and releases them from their enclosures to run amok on the island. These movies are based on the evolution theory that dinosaurs died out about 65 million years ago. They believe the Jurassic period of the Mesozoic Era was the height of the Age of the Reptiles, particularly dinosaurs. By finding insects (mosquitoes) trap in amber (fossilized tree sap) they were able to extract dinosaur blood (DNA) from the insect and clone a dinosaur using frog’s DNA to fill in the gap sequence of chromosomes. Sounds good for a fictional movie. But the true place where dinosaurs were housed was not a park but an “ark“. This ark that Noah built by God’s instructions (Genesis 6:14-16) was big enough to house a lot of animals even dinosaurs which were created on the six day of creation week. So this would give the reason dinosaurs were seen by man.
Many cultures around the world have legends about dragons. These dragons looked similar to a lot of dinosaurs. Most descriptions of dragons show them as reptilian in nature. Some have huge plates on their backs with spikes on their tails such as the Stegosaurus. Some were described with horns such as the Triceratops while others had ferocious teeth like Tyrannosaurus. Recently, they found soft bone tissue inside a Tyrannosaurus dinosaur bone. Could it be dinosaur fossils are only thousands of years old instead of millions of years old.
To this day, there is reports coming out of the jungles of Africa about sightings of dinosaur-like animals living in the lakes and rivers in remote areas. There is a well documented story of an encounter with a dinosaur by a well-known naturalist of that time named Ulysses Aldrovandus, who recorded an encounter between a peasant named Baptista and a dragon whose description possibly fits that of a dinosaur called Tanystropheus. The encounter was on May 13, 1572 near Bologna in Italy. The peasant killed the dragon.
In the book of Job we have a description of an animal that has the possibility of being a dinosaur. The creature called “behemoth” is only mentioned one time in the King James Version of the Bible in Job 40:15-24. Job’s description of it does not match any known animal living today. This is because there is “no” animal living today that has a tail like a cedar. Job said in his description that the creature’s tail moved like a cedar tree (straight tall evergreen trees) in the wind. Just go to a natural history museum and check out the dinosaurs now. Paleontologists have changed the position of the tails on dinosaurs. They are now straight behind them and up in the air. Just go to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh and see the dinosaur fossils there, especially the Diplodocus and Apatosaurus fossil specimens and see their huge, long whip-like tails that are straight behind them and up in the air.
