    If Dinosaurs existed before man, how come man was created few days after God created animals?

    According to scientists/archaeologists, dinosaurs existed for thousands of years before man came into existence. According to the bible, man was created few days after God created animals. But I want you to note what this scripture says, " With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day (2 Peter 3:8b)."
    So, did dinosaurs really existed or the bible didn't just record it?
    Afterthought: Apart from the bible, are there any other religious books that talked about dinosaurs?

    If you want answers, there isn't enough room here but these links I give you thoroughly explain dinosaurs and all aspects of them, when they lived on earth, what happened to them from a biblical and I might add, scientific perspective, they are not mutually exclusive. Start with the video then explore the links that have topics you are interested in. www.answersingenesis.org/dinosaurs/

    You might find this link very interesting: Here it is explained why human fossils haven't been found with dinosaur fossils. www.answersingenesis.org/dinosaurs/huma … -together/ This excerpt will heighten your interest.

    "Often, people believe that if human bones aren’t found with dinosaur bones, then they didn’t live at the same time. Actually, all we know for sure is that they weren’t buried together. It is very easy for creatures to live at the same time on earth, but never even cross paths. Have you ever seen a tiger or a panda in the wild? Just because animals are not found together does not mean they do not live in the same world at the same time.

    A great example is the coelacanth. Coelacanth fossils are found in marine deposits below dinosaurs and in other marine layers that date about the same age as dinosaurs. It was once thought the coelacanth became extinct about 70 million years ago because their fossils are not found in any deposits higher than this. However, in 1938 living populations were found in the Indian Ocean. It appears that coelacanths were buried with other sea creatures during the Flood—as we would expect. The example of the coelacanth shows that animals are not necessarily buried in the same place as other animals from different environments. We don’t find human bones buried with coelacanths, either, but we live together today, and people are enjoying them for dinner in some parts of the world. We find many examples like this, even with creatures that did not live in the sea. One popular example is the Wollemi Pine, which was fossilized in Jurassic deposits, supposedly 150 million years ago. However, we find these trees living today. Another great living fossil is the Ginkgo tree, which supposedly thrived 240 million years ago, prior to the dinosaurs. Yet, they are not found in layers with dinosaurs or post-Flood humans, even though they exist today. The list of “living fossils” goes on. Because animals and plants aren’t buried together, it is no indication that things didn’t live together."

      Thanks TSAD.
      But, even if animals and man didn't coexist, as of that time, don't you think there should also be fossil remains of man? At least we know that they all existed on earth, so even they are not buried together, we should still find sth.

      You didn't even investigate beyond the excerpt? Look further&you will be convinced that what you just asked is scientifically&logically highly unlikely considering minute amount of fossils found&the small populations of time.Morein the li

      So according to you the world is only 12,000 yrs old. Because that is about all for recorded history. And why can't we find any writing from Adam and Eve. ??

      There you go again, attacking instead of answering the ?s posed to you. You don't have any answers, just more name calling.

      No attack, just the truth. If the truth insuklts you that's your problem. I have answered your questions beyond satisfaction and u have ignored everything I've said, why, because you are not capable of reason.Show me u are and change.
