On God’s creation of dinosaurs
There is little definitive work on the ancient life in the sea produced for the Christian book market, yet the earth is literally covered with the memorial evidence of God’s creative work.
My viewpoint differs from creationists who believe that dinosaurs were created in the Garden of Eden at the creation of man and are 6,000 years old.
All things were made by God
My viewpoint differs from creationists only in when God created dinosaurs and whether the creation of man in the Garden of Eden for the redemption of the earth was the only creation on planet earth.
The illustrations for the book example that it does not matter whether the earth has been in existence for six thousand years or six million years, but proves that God created each of these sea creatures and specie families, especially and individually for the time they existed.
The whole earth is literally covered with that evidence through fossil and physical proof. Dinosaur fossils remain as a memorial to God’s original statement in His Word that nature itself proves His being.
Fossils come under the category of divine proof written of in Isaiah 55:13—And it will be a memorial to the Lord, for an everlasting sign which will not be cut off.
Fossils are a memorial to God’s divine creation
You can go to the foundation of the earth and through all of its layers and you will find evidence that cannot be ignored and that will not be cut off.
These fossil evidences of His divine creation will be here until He returns as eternal redeemer and King over all that ever was. All things came into being through Him; and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. -John 1:3 (NAS)
