Well, the bible doesnt say anything about dinosaurs.
Witch means that dinosaurs never even existed.
The only reason we find dinosaurs bones and oil is because the atheists planted the evidens all over the world so to make the curch look bad

I asked my very religious friend the same question and he said

Dinosaurs lived around 6000 years ago when the earth was created, but Noahs great flood buried their bones so deeply it tricked scientists into thinking they were much older than they actually were. Also, carbon dating is highly inaccurate.

I looked up the margin of error on carbon dating. Its about 1%.

Well to me, being someone to who believes in God, Dinosaurs were once an extremely intelligent and advanced civilisation, they controlled everything fairly and were equal amongst others, they even invented ways on using fuel without the use of oil. They were able to go to space and they even met other races, but one of the races they met got pissed off with them, so a massive war started between the dinosaurs and the aliens, the aliens managed to wipe out the dinosaurs but didn't get them all, thats why when ever we site alien ships flying around earth, it's usually a dinosaur trying to get back to home, but can't find a way how, so they feast off the livestock, abduct us to see how far we advanced and so on.

If you can accept that planets (dynamic systems that have weather and a range of environments) and heavy elements are the result of reactions in stars then what's so strange about the idea that the idea that molecules formed under the volcanic conditions of earth to self replicate and slowly become proto-cells? I'm not saying you're wrong or anything, everyone can believe what they like as long as it doesn't reduce the living standards of others. But the way you said your reasoning; 'god put down elements like carbon' sounds like you just have gaps in your knowledge about how those things come to be and are observed being created today. I just believe when making such a huge life decision about what you believe, learning everything is important.

The Bible doesn't specifically say how old the earth is. The creationists, and I mean the ones who are dead sure that evolution is false and there couldn't be dinosaurs, like to believe that the earth is 6000 years old because God created the earth in 7 days, then Adam and Eve sinned. However, there is nothing in the Bible saying that the earth is 6000 years old, or that dinosaurs didn't exist. The Bible doesn't specify how long Adam and Eve were in the garden before they sinned. It could have been a few million years or something. Also, God night not have created the earth in exactly a seven day period. Moses could have possibly just used days when he wrote Genesis so that it would be easier for people to understand and comprehend, but who is to say that God didn't create the earth in a period of billions of years, and that the ages of dinosaurs were in between when God created animals and humans. Who is to say that God didn't create every living thing using evolution. That is why it annoys the crap out of me when creationists ignore scientific evidence just because the Bible doesn't specifically say that the earth is billions of years old and dinosaurs existed. Well good sir, that is what I think about religion and dinosaurs. I hope I have helped in some way.

It's a much better answer than I've gotten from some people, who just tell me 'God doesn't say anything'. So thank you very much :)

Hi, Jesus here.
You might have heard of me.
"If you believe, you'll find out that Dinosaurs still exist!"

I'm wondering what religion explains at all

Ok where do I start. I am christian. I believe God created man and all things on this planet. But wait for it, I also believe in evolution and science etc. The Genesis stories were written in a time of a lot of confusion, and people wanting answers. So the church came up with this idea that God created all things to ease some debate. I see Genesis more as a parable then a truth. As far as I am concerned, God willed everything into what it is today. He created dinosaurs, he willed evolution, but he did not necessarily create everything in 7 days. I know a lot of people will disagree with me here but there are a lot of us who think in this way. There are a few conservative christians who will rub our religion in your face and slaughter you if you question it, but keep in mind there are many of us who believe in science as well and will respect your beliefs as an athiest if you respect ours. Thumb down if you like, but hopefully this gives you another perspective.
Have a nice day

So I knew a guy who's mom was a crazy mormon. Her explanation for dinosaurs is that they lived on a different planet and a meteor with a bunch of bones crashed into Earth a long time ago and that is why we find dinosaur bones. You really can't make this **** up.

Okay, so as a Believer in God I would love to throw my two cents in. It is true that we believe the earth is roughly 6000 years old. We believe this because the Bible actually talks about how old certain men, especially in the line of Christ, were when they had their children, and also how old they were when they died. As for the dinosaurs, just like any other species, it is very possible that they just went extinct. Look at all of the animals on our extinct and endangered lists right now anyway. As for carbon-dating, I don't know much about it and I'm not too interested to be personally honest. I believe that it may be possible that the dinosaurs had gone extinct before the flood of Noah and that the extreme pressure from the water may have made it seem like the bones were much older, like I said, I don't know much about it. This is just what I feel and what I thought i should share.

If all animals were created at once like that we would not observe the striations of the fossil record. Carbon dating relies on the use of radioactive carbon isotopes to date things, so "water pressure" would have no effect on the process.

They usually attribute the term "great beast" or what have you to mean dinosaurs considering it's a fact they existed and well they have to fit those in there somehow. Don't mention the fact that only .0001% of the species on earth are mentioned at all and surprisingly all that happened to just be in a 10-20 mile radius of the writers but I digress.

Otherwise (as already stated by 2 or 3 posters to this post) creationists usually say dinosaurs lived at the same time as man and some believe they still exist today. Even though 6000 years really isn't a long time so the fact that we were surprised there were even a large amount of dinosaurs only a few hundred years ago astounds me.

I just want to point out that many religions accept evolution, (as I personally am Catholic and believe in both God and evolution). The Catholic Church's stance is that evolution has occurred and God simply created the universe and influenced its formation, not the literal interpretation of Genesis and creation of Earth in 7 days. So some religions agree quite well with almost all of science. Also I just want to point out that the Catholic Church also admits that aliens are quite within the realm of possibility.

i dont believe god created the world in seven days as we know it. In the bible is says that thousands of years is about a day to him. I beleive there were dinosaurs for quite a while, then they died, then came man
