Did Dhinosaurs really exist? Does that mean the fossil record and evolution is true? Has mankind existed for more than 50,000 years?

The bible says there were 10 generations between Adam and Noah. So does that mean the earth is 6000 years old? Did the dhinosaurs get wiped out in Noah's Flood. But then why weren't the dhinosaurs saved?

    Dinsaurs never existed. Both the Qur'an and Sunnah are perfectly clear that Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala created the elephant to be the greatest land animal. According to the authentic naration by Nasir bin-wahlid vol 5; Allah (s.w.t) describes the elephant as the chief of the land animals from THE BEGINING. Most Islamic scholars agree that dinosaurs and evolution fall under al-fitenah the great deception).

    Yes, the dinosaurs really existed.

    That means that the fossil record is true.  That does NOT mean that atheistic evolution is true.

    Adam was the first flesh on the Earth, according to Genesis 2.  (Genesis 1 is the spiritual creation of life.  Genesis 2 is the physical creation of life.)  So yes, man has existed for more than 50,000 years.

    No, it means that the fall of man occurred about 6,000 years ago.  Or maybe that human history began about 6,000 years ago.

    No, I think most of the dinosaurs were long gone by the time of the Flood.

    Yes dinosaurs existed, and homo sapiens have been around for about 300,000 years.

    Yes they existed. Fossil records and evolution are true.  Yes.

    The Bible is not based on science.

    Yes.  No on evolutionism.  No.  Not 6,000, but closer to 7,574 (using LXX numbers).  Yes and a few were saved.

    Dino bones and human bones C14 date about the same, showing that humans and dinos lived about the same time.  (See vids below if you want to be a real expert on dinosaurs.)  Like a lot of animals since then, they went extinct.  Even today, there are animals on the verge of extinction.

    Since God created the world maybe they did or didn't. If God wanted too He could create an AGED world which appears older than it really is. We take it for granted that everything was made fully formed but what if God created a world which appears to have evolved over millenia in over a few thousand years? Since the world was created in an adult state isn't God capable of creating a world that fits into the evolution modal? Obviously if God created the world science and the Torah can harmoniously coexist. Obviously scientists can be wrong and interpret things wrong but God is perfect and doesn't make mistakes. 

    Ask a scientist why they believe dhinosaurs are green or red or yellow. Most of them cannot know what color dhinosaurs were. Most of the jungles were full of plants and food. Most snakes and lizards in rainforests are usually green ir bright colored. So scientists speculated dhinosaurs are probably the same.

    The fossil record cannot be used an as accurate measurement for determining the age of the world. However that isn't to say that those events couldn't or didn't happen as they appear, time and interpretation is the big question. Could God have created fossils in the ground? Could God fast-forward millions of years in 24 hours? Of course all possibilities are open to debate but Jewish law holds that it was literally thousands of years ago that God created the earth. The Torah is Gid's Word what happened, science is man's opinion. Those of us who see that the world is not accidental and believe God is Creator trust His Word over any scientific theory or interpretation. The religious person holds the Bible over science, atheists hold science to have more weight than the bible. Which camp do you associate with? 

    While I am compelled to accept the "young earth creationist" narrative I believe it is not impossible for God to have created the world slowly in stages as it agrees with science. But that doesn't make sense according the bible. The entire account of Genesis almost would become mythology or allegory if you try to make the explicit words of bible allegorical and exaggerated.  Noah was a real person and the flood was a real cataclysmic event. No matter the stretch of imagination it is impossible to stretch 10 generations in 50,000 years or more. Even links to Apes, Neanderthals, fish and so on have to be a mistake according to the biblical account of creation. 

    I don't believe dhinosaurs existed and roamed the earth during Noah's generation. You have a good point why would the dinosaurs be saved? Truth is they would be too big to even fit inside the doors of the ark and too dangerous and difficult to care for.

    Dinosaurs absolutely existed.  Evolution is absolutely true.  The Earth is about 4.5 billion years old.  We have SOOOO much evidence.  Like WAY more than I can reasonably explain here.  Please, PLEASE, go read about it on a credible website or youtube channel.  DO NOT get your science information from religious sources - remember, religion has spent thousands of years RESISTING science.  Many scientists were denounced as heretics throughout history.

    Adam and Noah are fictional characters.  The Bible is a book littered with scientific inaccuracies, and internal contradictions and thus has no credibility.  

    If you trust Ken Ham, the idiot who created the 'Ark Encounter', which is a scam theme park, he put dinosaurs ON THE ARK...except nowhere near all of them or enough of them because they wouldn't fit.  Rather than realizing that this meant his idea was wrong and re-thinking it, he just went forward anyway.

    Dinosaurs were real. The fossil record shows punctuated stasis not gradual change over time. Intelligent humans have only been around for 25 thousand year at most. The creation stories in Genesis are allegory.

    The "theory of evolution" is an oxymoron because evolution has no scientific credibility to be considered a "theory". Charles Darwin was a flat earth conspiracy theorist. If you read his book The Voyage of the Beagle (published in 1839), he clearly noted the earth was flat with four corners. Funny how atheists are comfortable teaching Darwin's 'theory' of evolution, but the fail to teach his flat earth theory.
