Quote# 40225

I will settle this once and for all because I have an answer (that can't be disputed) for why the Earth CANNOT have been created billions of years ago. Dinosaurs are in the bible ('Dragons',' Behemoths', 'Giant Lizards','leviathons') the description given for these creatures match only the skeletons which archaeologists have discovered to be dinosaurs, which means humans and dinosaurs were around at the same time. When they were around - we were around. Which was not billions of years ago.

Yeah but my book says dinosaurs died out by the time humans came around.

*Wields biology book*

I don't recall any "Giant Lizards" being mentioned in any translation of the Bible I'm familiar with.

The mentions of dragons are relics of the period in which those Bible versions were created (KJV, Geneva, etc.) Those p[assages in earlier versions refer to jackals, wild oxen and other non-fantasy creatures. Similarly most scholars believe the passage referring to the behemoth is talking about a large bovine. The leviathon likely refers to a whale.

It seems your answer CAN be disputed.

Dinosaurs didn't exist with humans, and, if they did it wouldn't prove goddidit.

"that can't be disputed"

No. Wow, that was easy!

6/1/2008 6:10:18 AM


aaaaaaaaand you're a moron.

"the description given for these creatures match only the skeletons which archaeologists have discovered to be dinosaurs"

Wrong. The descriptions could be any large animal. The one fundies love to point out, because of its "tail swinging like a cedar", as being a sauropod doesn't count as the KJV changed it from "his penis hardens like a cedar".

Even if the descriptions did fit dinosaurs, it could also mean that some people had stumbled upon dinosaur skeletons.

And another thing, even if dinosaurs lived with humans how does that prove the earth isn't billions of years old?

Occam's Razor, bitch. YOU FAIL.

6/1/2008 6:42:45 AM


Dinosaurs weren't around billions of years ago either, just a couple of hundred million years ago. So how does this prove the age of the Earth is not billions of years?

I am beginning to cry at the stupidity....

You're just asking to be pwned aren't you?

Still using biblical assertions in a debate against atheists...

6/1/2008 7:43:51 AM


Never heard about the bible giving a description for Leviathans, Behemoths or Dragons (well, I also never heard of the bible mentioning dragons at all ;) )

6/1/2008 8:37:41 AM


sorry, but mythology about large animals and then the discover of very different long extinct animals don't actually fit together. Besides, I don't recall digging up any unicorns, or really anything that could be mistaken for a dragon (at least of the common flying variety).

6/1/2008 9:07:53 AM


So why arent there any human skeletons in the same places as dinosaur ones?

6/1/2008 9:12:07 AM


Funny how the dragons, behemoths, giant lizards and leviathans are given less time in the Bible than Mary Magdalene's diaphragm. It's also worth noting that there is absolutely no mention of anyone being eaten by giant lizards or of villages being stomped flat by diplodocuses.

It also makes me wonder why none of the art left behind from that time depicts our relationship with the dinosaurs. I'm standing by for an explanation as to why the military forces of the time didn't employ them as mounts or living battering rams.

I can't express myself in words, so I'll use image macros.

6/1/2008 10:24:28 AM


Yes, -you-of all people have settled this. No more discussion here people, move along now, the argument is over.

You think they might have mentioned them a bit more in the bible, if the dinosaurs walked with the humans...

6/1/2008 11:33:51 AM


There were stories, church stories, from the 15th century featuring dragons. Pick a damn lane.

" Dinosaurs are in the bible ('Dragons',' Behemoths', 'Giant Lizards','leviathons') the description given for these creatures match only the skeletons which archaeologists have discovered to be dinosaurs,"

Which verse tells us the number of horns on a styracosaurus?

As soon as I read "cannot be disputed", I knew it was going to be a strawman army.

So what if dinosaurs were in the Bible and walked with humans? How does that prove they weren't around a hundred million years ago? Coelacanths were thought to have gone extinct 65 million years ago, but then we found one alive in 1938. If there were dinosaurs in the middle east at the time of Isaiah, they didn't leave any remains. Where there are dinosaur fossils, we never find humans mixed in with them.

behemoths and leviathons refer to whales. Giant lizards is something frequently assigned to iguanas or komodo dragons. Dragons are fanciful creatures much like unicorns, et al.

I have a story that says the descendants of Jesus are still among us and its got better evidence.

In the words of Lex Luthor: WRONG!

Well, there's your first mistake.
