Supplemental materials

Q&A: Dinosaurs


The Creation Answers Book, Chapter 19

Discussion questions

  1. In your own words, explain the history of dinosaurs according to evolutionists: When did dinosaurs live? Where did they come from? What did they eat originally? Why do we find dinosaur fossils today? etc.
  2. In your own words, explain the true, biblical history of dinosaurs: When did dinosaurs live? Where did they come from? What did they eat originally? Why do we find dinosaur fossils today? etc.
  3. Summarise the evidence that humans and dinosaurs co-existed
    1. from the Bible
    2. from archaeology
    3. from more recent anecdotal reports
  4. Review the difference between ‘origins’ and ‘operational science’ (See Chapter 1). Which aspects of paleontology fall under the realm of ‘origins science’? Which aspects are considered ‘operational science’?
  5. What is meant by the term ‘Christian worldview’? ‘Secular worldview’?
  6. What is our knowledge of the way dinosaurs looked based on?
  7. Read Job 40 and Could Behemoth have been a dinosaur? Based on this, and the information in the Creation Answers Book, what type of animal do you think ‘behemoth’ was?
  8. How could dinosaurs have fitted in Noah’s Ark? List some evidence that confirm dinosaur bones have not been around for millions of years. (See also Dinosaur bones: Just how old are they really?, and Sensational dinosaur blood report!)
  9. Research endangered species programs and extinctions happening in the present. Based on this information, what types of things may have caused the dinosaurs to become scarce or extinct? Read Did a meteor wipe out the dinosaurs? for information that refutes a common idea that a meteorite impact caused the dinosaurs to become extinct.
  10. Why is it important that we are able to explain the existence of dinosaurs within a biblical worldview?
  11. If a dinosaur was found to be living today in the remote jungles of New Guinea or the Congo, what would it prove in regard to evolution and creation?
  12. What are the advantages and problems with using dinosaurs as a creation apologetic?
