The bible mentions Giants (GOLIATH) So
Goliath was huge. There had to be food sources. This could imply huge creatures lived there.
There is a description of what appears to be some creature that does not fit any other animal. I believe it is in Genesis. I don't know the scripture off hand, but I will try to look it up for you and get to you later.
Dinosaurs no.But in apocalupse full mentionts of creatures that we meet in gothic muths .You know about dragons and etc.
The Book of Job mentions The Leviathan as a huge sea creature and it also mentions The Behemoth who's tail sways like a cedar tree.
Just a note: Job is the oldest book in the Bible.
No because man was created after the ages of dinosaurs. Dinosaurs (every crawling, creeping....creature...for the good of humans. Dinosaurs (dead) caused the fossil fuels we have relied on. There's no reason scientific data cannot exist in the Bible. It's NOT either you believe in the story of creation or the story of evolution. It's a matter of collecting data that supports BOTH scientific and theological beliefs----which, if done concisely and correctly will lead to answers that make sense. God created science and maybe man is inferior to interpret them satisfactorily. TToni9
There are a few mythical creatures which creationists have tried to use to claim that man and dinosaurs lived at the same time, but given what we know of the past diversity of life, it seems unlikely that the earth could have supported all of these organisms living at the same time and that if they did, that the cultural references to giant animals are so few and far between, it seems unlikely therefore that man and dinosaurs really did live together.
The bible does mention whales in Genesis. Now if you include the possibility that whales lived as far back as dinosaurs...which they may have, then it is at least a creature of the prehistoric eras. But no dinosaurs per se. Legends of dragons in far eastern cultures might point to reminants of the prehistoric age, that being an explanation why humans are always hunting them down in myths, but again not a likely reality.
There has always been a lot of discussion about this topic and the only references I can find are more arbitrary as well.
As the others have mentioned here: there is the "Behemoth" from the land (Job 40:15-24), which has been speculated as everything from a Hippopotamus to a Brontosaurus; and "Leviathan" (Job 3:8; Job 41:1; Psalm 74:14; Psalm 104:26; Isaiah 27:1 ) from the sea, which has been thought to be either a huge whale or a giant sea serpent of some kind, possibly even a Mosasaur-type dinosaur?
There were "Giants" in those days as mentioned in Genesis... and many Creationists hold the belief that the whole "carbon dating" thing is way out of scale in time frame because of the "Flood Layer" found in geological evidence as well as other factors. Not to mention the fact that going by Biblical sources, we would believe that God created life more instantaneously versus evolution over "millions" of years (or at least He speeded the process up quite significantly).
This does not surprise me with the scientific evidence of Dinosaurs actually living beyond their normal era, as in the Coelacanth for example and rumors of other things like "Loch Ness".
Maybe these are the animals that lived outside the Garden of Eden in the more "harsh" world from the beginning? It's one of those things we may have to wait and ask Him ourselves later!
Here is an interesting Hub however on the subject (and catches a lot of flak):

These kind of things are always worth keeping your mind open to. God CAN do anything He wants (and quite frequently does!).

When it comes to the question of dinosaurs, it all comes down to our limited understanding of what might be considered to qualify. Archeologists have uncovered some pretty interesting things that don’t quite fit any normal classifications. In addition to what Rev. Ted has pointed out, let’s not forget that Satan is referred to as a dragon in Revelations 12. References using the term dragon are found throughout the Old Testament; Deuteronomy, Psalm, and a number of the Prophets. There is also some surprising insight given in the extra canonical book of Enoch, once considered valid as scripture. The simple fact is we don’t have a reliable method to determine just what existed in ancient biblical times. If we take in the account of the Nephilim, referred to in Genesis 6, the door is opened for all sorts of possibilities. There are many that believe that these were the basis for the Greek/Roman and Norse gods as well as the many others found in antiquity.
I guess for the individual it boils down to what you choose to accept as valid source information. Here is a reference that probable leaves more questions to mind than it answers.

Is it possible to truly be religious as well as believe in the evidence of science with theories such as evolution, the Big Bang and dinosaurs existing prior to man not along side? (Please keep it clean and civil guys, thank you.)

For one thing there was no one to record the events of creation when it happened. Another reason why the narrative proves to be just imaginative is...
