Yesterday we learned dinosaurs were created on the same day as Adam and Eve, so dinosaurs and man did live together. But wouldn’t fierce dinosaurs like T. rex have terrorized the Garden of Eden?
Genesis chapter 1 tells us that, originally, people and the animals were created vegetarian. God gave them the plants to eat. This means originally T. rex would’ve been snacking on fruits and plants. But, what about those huge teeth?
Well, just because something has big teeth doesn’t mean it eats meat. We see that today. Fruit bats and lemurs both have sharp teeth, but they eat plants!
It wasn’t until after sin that creatures started eating meat.
