A lot of people thought that man and dinosaurs are millions of years apart. I would just like to know how many in myLot that man and dinosaurs have co-existed in some point in time? Would anybody believe that dinosaurs and dragons are mentioned in the Bible but by different names?

The Bible can be a very puzzling book. I would entertain the idea that maybe dinosaurs and dragons are in the Bible by different names. What do you think? Do you have any scriptures that you believe refer to them?

You could try reading Job chapter 41. There is a creature there mention as a Leviathan. It closely resemble a dragon. And in Job 40:15-24 it describe another creature name Behemoth. This one resembles a dinosaur seen in the movie Jurassic Park. Those with long neck that eats the leaves of the tree.

Dinosaurs and man never coexisted. Many cultures have tales of dragons and giants, presumably because early man must have found very large fossilised bones from time to time and made up stories to rationalise them.

Maybe. But if it's written in the Bible would you believe that they have coexisted?

No. I don't believe that everything in the Bible is literal fact. It also depends a great deal on translation. There are plenty of stories about people killing dragons but they are metaphorical images, not reality.

I've always wondered about that. It's a very interesting question. Sometimes I think maybe God put fossils there just so that it would be a debate. Not so much to test people's faith, but just to leave questions. You know what I mean? Like if all evidence pointed to God in every single way without any doubt, believing would not mean anything. Just another thought. ~Jesus loves you and I do too~
