According to the Bible, a massive flood covered the earth-Noahs Flood, when God judged the world for its wickedness. This worldwide flood occurred 4,300 to 4,400 years ago according to the genealogy recorded in the Bible that tracks the lineage from Adam to Jesus. All the dinosaurs (except the ones on the Ark) drowned and were quickly buried in dirt and mud. They are among many of the fossils that are uncovered today. These fossil remains are found in Flood sediment. Today, the flood sediment is commonly referred to, in man produced charts geared toward evolution, as the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous layers.
A significant part of the belief that the universe is billions of years old rests with the idea that dinosaurs roamed the earth millions of years ago and are part of an evolutionary chain leading to man. Where did this notion come from that supports an age of dinosaurs millions of years ago, long before mankind was created? This certainly is not what God's Word teaches. And, I will add the physical evidence and the study of DNA do not support such a claim.
In the early 1800s, the fossil remains of dinosaurs uncovered brought more and more attention. The study of these "great fossil lizards" became of great interest to European and American scientists, and in 1842 the English paleontologist Richard Owen coined the term "dinosaur" from the Greek-deinos "terrible, monstrous" sauros "lizard". In the Bible we have references to these "terrible lizards" - the Behemoth, Leviathan, Dragon, and Fiery Flying Serpent. The Bible provides the proof that what we commonly call dinosaurs today came off the Ark and existed after the worldwide flood. (See my next blog that will be titled: Creation Series: Dinosaurs - A Look at Biblical, DNA and More Physical Evidence.)
Just to answer the question, how did some dinosaurs get so big? The simple answer is they lived very long lives and lizards continue to grow throughout their lifespan. Remember Adam lived for 930 years provided for by the perfect atmosphere that existed before the worldwide flood took place.
Devised in the early 1800s, the geologic chart of Earth's supposed history is totally geared to the "theory"of evolution. It is because of man's imagination, instead of looking to God's Word for the true and accurate answers, that Divisions of Geological Time have come into being including the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous periods considered to have occurred millions of years ago.
Following information summarized from Unlocking the Mysteries of Creation by Dennis R. Petersen.** Consider this: If you found fossil trilobites and took them to a paleontologist. He would ask where did you find them? Then he would identify the layer as "Cambrian." Next, he would look at the Geologic Chart and pronounce the trilobites to be about 450 million years old. When, you ask how do you know that? The response would be, "Because they are in the Cambrian layer."
**Taking your peeked curiosity on to a geologist. You show him a picture of the place you found your fossil trilobites and ask how old would you judge this layer of rock to be? He would ask, what kind of fossils have you found in it? Trilobites. Easy to answer, its about 450 million years old. How do you know that? If trilobites are there then we know the layer is that old.
**Circular reasoning. Geologist's are arguing in a circle. "The succession of organisms has been determined by the study of their remains embedded in the rocks, and the relative ages of the rocks are determined by the remains of the organisms they contain." Quote from Geologist R. R. Rastall in Encyclopaedia Brittanica, 1956.
In summary - The age of the rock layer is determined by what fossils are found in that layer. And, the age of the fossils determined by the rock layer in which they are found.
The truth is the worldwide flood explains the deposit layers and the fossils found in these layers explain the order in which each creature drowned and was buried in dirt and mud. The physical evidence points directly to a massive flood occurrence. The worldwide flood during the time period of Noah, 4,300 to 4,400 years ago.

Thanks again Sister Dorothy, for sharing this! God Bless you and your family richly! Dave
Thank you for your supportive comments dear brothers in Christ.
I do believe in these end days many will be turned away from the deception Satan has penetrated society with and turn to God's Word and its truth, realizing the great need to honor God and not mock Him.
Let us bless God and be a blessing to others!
