Dragons and dinosaurs in the bible
Dragons or Dinosaurs?: Creation or Evolution? by Darek IsaacsDragon legends are found in nearly every culture around the globe. They have been thought to be myths. Yet, mysteriously, these dragons sound a lot like the other giant scaled reptiles, dinosaurs. Could they be one and the same? Surprisingly enough, the answer to this question is a powerful truth that confirms biblical authority and demolishes the theory of evolution.
This book brings forth many new theories and evidence that are sure to fascinate the reader.
Dragons and Dinosaurs — Do they exist in the Bible?
There are many references to dinosaur-like creatures, or if you prefer the older name, dragons, in the Bible. This is not unique to Scripture. Ancient literature from around the world is filled with references to these frightening monsters, which display many striking similarities to one another, as well as to modern scientific descriptions of dinosaurs and other extinct reptiles. These globe-spanning similarities are hard to explain if the creatures mentioned in these ancient texts are purely mythological. How did ancient peoples around the world know about these animals, and how they looked and acted, if they had never seen them alive?
I think most of us grew up listening wide-eyed to tales of heroes fighting dragons and rescuing beautiful damsels. Of course, these stories are romantic and always have a good ending, and most children love the beauty and simplicity of these romances. The stories may be fantasies, but the teaching and moral of these traditional stories are usually wholesome. This is unlike the images of dinosaurs that we learnt from documentaries, or from visiting a museum. We know that dinosaurs existed because we have fossils, even though these awesome creatures are now extinct. I think the contrasts for dragons and dinosaurs are features to resolve for modern education, as it is necessary to separate reality from fantasy.
Are the Biblical Dragons actually Dinosaurs?
The truth about Dinosaurs & Dragons
It is the most dramatic and important opening of any chapter of any book. Given as a declaration of fact, the first verse of Genesis covers the creation of time, space, and matter in a single sentence; a solitary breath. Thus began the world and everything in it. Today, we continue to discover physical evidence of many creatures that no longer exist, including reptiles known as dinosaurs. Their skeletal remains give us a glimpse into the structure and size of these remarkable animals. Yet the controversy rages: Did these creatures evolve into existence and eventually become extinct millions of years before humanity stepped onto the scene of world history? Or were humans and dinosaurs created by God; co-existing for centuries before saurian extinction?
