Dinosaurs in the Bible? YES. Christianity. 73 Extended Discussion 3/18/15 8:10am

You short-change yourself; creationist scholars are not smarter than you. They're just rather good at convincing people with their style. you deal in imagine and the Greeks, I will continue looking for answers. I deal in considering whether ideas have - or can have - support. But keep this in mind. There's a difference between these two approaches: 1. Obtaining the facts, and deriving ...

We do need evidence for whether any hypothesis is consistent with reality; and the more spectacular the claim against what is known, the more spectacular the evidence must be. So yes, there is no current evidence for a fire-breathing, semi-aquatic, predatory dinosaur having lived within the last three thousand years. There is evidence that the descriptions of animals and/or their fossils g ...

The biggest problem with claiming dinosaur (as Hovind liked to) is that we would need evidence of their being alive well within human history. We have that for, say, woolly mammoths which lived on isolated arctic islands until about 2000 BCE, whereupon they rapidly vanished, most likely due to human predation. We don't have that for dinosaurs; we don't have evidence of those (other than bird ...

Great. I am not trying to persuade you necessarily, but we both have presented our side, and you know why I reject your suggestion, and I know why you reject mine. We keep on with the general same information but explain it differently. I think at this point, if we arent trying to persuade each other, we will have to agree to disagree on who or what this Leviathan is. Now as far as the 1611 tra ...

I had been unaware of any specific request to do a line-by-line analysis of the chapter, so there is that. We'll set that aside though, as it is no longer of consequence. :puddi: Disagree. I am debating an extinct creature here that we do not see today, a great creature. That is the whole reason I am debiting. You are assuming such a great creature could not exist because you do not see it ...

Short form: If you're going to keep quoting creationists, then you're not going to hold my interest. Biblical crypto-zoology is something that I do kinda have interest in - and I will say that in the course of this thread I have learned some things - both of palaeo-zoology and of ancient Hebrew. It's not in every such discussion that I can walk away with that. However, I'm not interested in w ...

I'm encouraging you to look at it in another way. You're refusing because you're locked into your own preconceived idea. mankind did coexist with some of the megafauna. Now you are lying. You said "prehistory" are the 7+-meter long crocodiles prehistory, or not? You don't even understand the word prehistory: it refers to all of time before the development of writing (around the 3000s BCE). ...

Shortening post with spoiler tags. This is likely to be my last post for this thread. Not certainly, but likely. It's based on more facts than your creationist sources can muster. Hold it right there. Am I arguing from a Greek standpoint? This is a straw man argument. Except that the Septuagint translated those terms drakwn (or drakontos, in the genitive,) wherefore the Latin used draco ...

Except that they didn't describe dinosaurs. We've already handled re'em and behemoth; tannyn and leviathan are no harder. Ancient cultures called what we know today to be called dinosaurs, they called dragons, all over the world. They had depictions of them, writings and descriptions of them which fit what we know today to be dinosaurs, yet they called them dragons, serpents, terrible beas ...

The distinction between "reptiles" (lepidosaurs, which includes lizards, snakes, other things you typically think of as reptiles that aren't crocodile-shaped) is made in the sternum and teeth. Snakes are here because they're evidently related to lizards. Between crocodiles and dinosaurs, it's ankle structure; crocs can surprisingly switch between squat and upright running, with squat being ...

That's... odd, that you've gone that long without them quoting 1 Corinthians 7 at you. The short form: marriage sucks, unless you're really horny and at risk of running about having arbitrary sex. In that case, you should get married so that you have a single valid target for your arbitrary sex. Paul of Tarsus, doling out marriage advice.

Neither. 1. Sharks are fish, and were fish 200 million years before there were any dinosaurs. :3nod: 2. Crocs and gators (different families under Order Crocodilia)... they're archosaurs, but they're not dinosaurs. The best analogy I can find for this in a moment is this: dogs are Carnivora, but dogs are not felines. Archosaurs split into two clades, pseudosuchia and ornithodora, ...
