When Were Dinosaurs Created?

This is Ken Ham, on a mission to call the church back to God’s Word and the gospel.

If you were asked “where did dinosaurs come from?,” how would you answer? Well, it’s not a hard question if we start with the Bible. Let’s take a look.

Genesis chapter 1 says God created all the land animals on day six of creation week. Dinosaurs, by definition, are land animals, so they must’ve been created on day six. And that’s the same creation day as Adam. Adding up the genealogies in Genesis, we know there were two thousand years from Adam to Abraham. And we know it’s been four thousand years since Abraham. So, dinosaurs were created around six thousand years ago, during creation week.

Dinosaurs are only a mystery if we ignore the Bible!
