What is a Leviathan? According to 2014 Merriam-Webster It is something that is very large and powerful AND something large or formidable. Words related to Leviathan are dinosaur, monster, giant, jumbo, and behemoth.

What does The Holy Bible say about Dinosaurs? In Isaiah 27:1 - "In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that [is] in the sea." In Job 40:17 "He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together."

Before the King James Bible was written the word Dinosaur did not exist! The word Dinosaur was invented after the King James Bible was written.

The pictures to your right display the shape and length of tails of an elephant, hippopotamus and a dinosaur. You decide which one you think would move more like a cedar tree?

What Really happened to Dinosaurs

Secular Historical Records Supporting Co-existance

Marco Polo the famous explorer actually records the existence of dinosaurs as part of his explorations.

"Here are found snakes and huge serpents, ten paces in length and ten spans in girth ( 50 feet long and 100 inches wide). At the fore part, near the head, they have two short legs, each with three claws, as well as eyes larger than a loaf and very glaring. The jaws are wide enough to swallow a man, the teeth are large and sharp, and their whole appearance is so formidable that neither man, nor any kind of animal can approach them without terror. Others are of smaller size, being eight, six, or five paces long (1961, pp. 158-159)."

Marco Polo is not alone, several other people have recorded the co-existence of dinosaurs with man, including Alexander the Great.
