Were Dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark? (yes)
answersingenesis ^ | unknown | staff

Posted on 01/13/2009 9:58:56 AM PST by Ron Jeremy

So, Were Dinosaurs on the Ark?

In Genesis 6:19–20, the Bible says that two of every sort of land vertebrate (seven of the “clean” animals) were brought by God to the Ark. Therefore, dinosaurs (land vertebrates) were represented on the Ark. How Did Those Huge Dinosaurs Fit on the Ark?

Although there are about 668 names of dinosaurs, there are perhaps only 55 different “kinds” of dinosaurs. Furthermore, not all dinosaurs were huge like the brachiosaurus, and even those dinosaurs on the Ark were probably “teenagers” or young adults.

It is hard to take them seriously when they still refer to the Brontosaurus. Other than children's coloring books, no one has called the Apatosaurus that in decades.

Dinosaurs were long gone by a few million years before the first man ever walked the face of the earth. But I do wonder if the snail darter was on the ark?

No ... dinosaurs were not on the Ark. When God told him to gather two of every land animal, the term “non-extinct” was implied.

Duh.

Dinosaur DNA or embryos could have been onboard if they were meant to be

The world is preparing another “Noah’s Ark” for plant life to try to survive the next catastrophe. For all we know there are similar preservation repositories for animal and human life.

If “Planet X” swings by in 2012, some are planning to try and be prepared.

Noah was pretty smart. He took baby animals on the ark with him. Since dinosaurs were just overgrown lizards..... You anti-creation people are funny.

Who cleaned up the Brachiosaurus’ poop and how did they discard it if, according to the Bible, they weren’t supposed to open any of the doors for something like 45 days after the rain stopped.

I suppose if you can have a couple of lions, some grizzlies and dire wolves on the Ark, the smaller dinosaurs wouldn't be much of an issue.

The issue is feeding all of those animals for 40 days and 40 nights. And what happens when the rains end and the floods recede? 40 days covered in water would have killed all of the plants on the planet. And, what are the predators supposed to eat post-flood if there are only two of each herbivore species left? As soon as the T-Rex eats one of the elephants, that's it for that species.

The rate of growth would make some like a Brachiosaurus the size of a sherman tank within a month, and they would require about their body weight in food when they are young.

> Were Dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark? (yes)NO

While many animals were on Noah's Ark, they had all finished evolving from dinosaurs millions of years before the Great (Local) Flood which wiped out the human civilizations populating the Middle East of the time. With few exceptions these animals were very similar to the animals that we have today.

That’s not true and science can’t prove that. All their so called proofs are based on presupposition and your belief in their theory is based on years of indoctrination.

So, show us some evidence that any dinosaur species survived long enough to interact with humans. You've got a pretty big gap in time to fill.

A long time ago, when the Earth was green,
There was more kinds of animals than you’ve ever seen.
And they ran about and played while the Earth was being born,
And the loveliest of all was the unicorn.

There was green alligators and long-necked geese,
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees.
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you’re born,
The loveliest of all was the unicorn.

The Lord seen some sinning and it caused Him pain.
And He said, “Stand back, I’m going to make it rain!”
He said, “Hey, Brother Noah, I’ll tell you what to do,
Go and build me a floating zoo,”

“and take some”.......

“Green alligators and long-necked geese,
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees.
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you’re born.
Don’t you forget My unicorns.”

Old Noah was there to answer the call,
He finished up the ark just as the rain started to fall.
Then he marched in the animals two by two,
And he called out as they came through,

“Hey Lord,”

“I’ve got green alligators and long-necked geese,
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees.
Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord, I’m so forlorn,
I just can’t find no unicorns!”

And Noah looked out through the driving rain,
Them unicorns were hiding, playing silly games.
Kicking and splashing while the rain was pourin’,
Oh, them silly unicorns!

There was green alligators and long-necked geese,
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees.
Noah cried, “Close the door because it’s starting to storm,
And we just can’t wait for those unicorns!”

The ark started moving, it drifted with the tide,
The unicorns looked up from the rocks and they cried.
And the waters came down and sort of floated them away,
That’s why you never see unicorns to this very day.

You’ll see some green alligators and long-necked geese,
Lots of humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees.
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you’re born,
You’re never gonna see a unicorn!

How big is a raptor when it’s born? Maybe the size of small squirrel? If Noah was able to build a huge boat he could probably manage to build a couple small cages to keep baby raptors in.

Doesn't that go both ways? Of course, science has this darn little thing of carbon dating fossils.

But I know, I know.. God made carbon dating work where it would trick people into not believing that the earth is 5k years old.

Strange to assume dinosaurs made it on the ark. Even if a person believes in the Biblical account of creation and of the flood, why would that mean dinosaurs made it on the ark? What if they weren't (or most weren't) around by that time?

I used to find these crevo threads interesting but mostly for the arguments that ensue. I've never quite figured out why a Creationist would assume the Bible was written as a science manual - and I'm a Creationist.

Double check your Genesis. It rained for 40 days and nights, then the Ark floated for 5 months. They entered on the seventeeth day of second month, and it landed on Mount Ararat on the seventeenth day of the seventh month.

As to what the animals ate, well, the Bible says that Noah and his three sons and their families all entered the Ark. It didn't say they all got off at the end.

The Old Testament of the Bible is laconic and appears in many places to be telling large stories in too few words. It was originally meant as a kind of a Reader's Digest version of what Jews call "midrashim", meaning the full body of very ancient rabbinical literature. Jews simply have more writing from further back than anybody else does.

Louis Ginzberg's "Legends" appears to be the largest body of such literature ever translated into western languages. It used to be a difficult thing to find but now is freely available on the net. In book form it consists of seven volumes, altogether a bit more than a foot thick. Some of it is clearly fanciful while aspects of it provide a much better flavor for details of the times they describe than we might have had:

Legends of the Jews, Louis Ginzberg:

http://philologos.org/__eb-lotj/

These texts flesh out some of the tales you read in the Bible, e.g.

Noah trying to save dinosaurs:

Quote:

One animal, the reem, Noah could not take into the ark. On account of its huge size it could not find room therein. Noah therefore tied it to the ark, and it ran on behind.[34] Also, he could not make space for the giant Og, the king of Bashan. He sat on top of the ark securely, and in this way escaped the flood of waters. Noah doled out his food to him daily, through a hole, because Og had promised that he and his descendants would serve him as slaves in perpetuity.[35]


Astral changes associated with the flood:

Quote:
The flood was produced by a union of the male waters, which are above the firmament, and the female waters issuing from the earth.[39] The upper waters rushed through the space left when God removed two stars out of the constellation Pleiades. Afterward, to put a stop to the flood, God had to transfer two stars from the constellation of the Bear to the constellation of the Pleiades. That is why the Bear runs after the Pleiades. She wants her two children back, but they will be restored to her only in the future world.[40]

There were other changes among the celestial spheres during the year of the flood. All the time it lasted, the sun and the moon shed no light, whence Noah was called by his name, "the resting one," for in his life the sun and the moon rested. The ark was illuminated by a precious stone, the light of which was more brilliant by night than by day, so enabling Noah to distinguish between day and night.[41]


The flood itself was part and parcel of some larger catastrophe which was almost certainly solar-system wide. It was preceeded by seven days of intense light, indicating some sort of a nova-like event or blowout of some sort:

King James Version:

Quote:

GEN 7:4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth.

GEN 7:10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.

ISA 30:26 Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that the LORD bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound.


The section in the index of Ginzberg's Legends (vol 7) which absolutely connects Gen 7.4 and Isaiah 30:26:

http://tinyurl.com/75lp7v

http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r53/icebear46/flood.jpg

In other words, Isaiah was not talking about cramming seven days worth of light into one day as is commonly supposed but rather was referring back to the light of the week preceeding the flood.

Nor is there any reason to think anybody would make up a complex story like that or refer to something like that without bothering to explain the reference unless he assumed the reference was common knowledge at the time.

“Who cleaned up the Brachiosaurus’ poop”

I guess God is stupid. Or, maybe not. Maybe He trusted Noah to just take dinosaur eggs or baby dinosaurs.

Pro 17:28 Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips [is esteemed] a man of understanding.

The Bible, having been written by God, is unassailable.
