Dinosaurs, aliens, and the Flood

Science and secularism clash over a specimen much like this Triceratops skull. But another question remains: what killed the dinosaurs?

Two hundred years ago, modern humans rediscovered a class of animals that dwarfed all other animals they knew. Those who found their remains, called these animals dinosaurs – literally, terrible lizards. Conventional origins scientists believe a single event, 65 million years ago, extinguished the dinosaurs forever. They also believe this happened long before humankind appeared on earth.

Scientist fired for discovery

Triceratops horridus as a scientist thinks it might have looked.

Can a scientist lose his job for discovering something new and telling the community about it? It happened recently. And the scientist who lost his job, is going to court to get it back. And that case threatens to pit creation against evolution in a trial to rival Tennessee v. Scopes.

Creation Day 6: Creatures Great and Small

On Creation Day 6, God made the land animals. This included one class of creature usually lost in translation: the dinosaur.

The only known video footage of Cadborosaurus willsi gives the best clues yet to what it really is: a saltwater pod of plesiosaurs.

The Dinosaur Dilemma, revisited: ignoring data and calling it ‘science’

During the Recall movement against Senator Robert Menendez in New Jersey, the intolerant disdain for those opposed to the theories of creation science became apparent in the rhetoric from many in the media and the Menendez camp. The most frequent object of hostility and ridicule was an article published on Creation Science Alive by Recall spokeswoman RoseAnn Salanitri, titled The Dinosaur Dilemma. The article challenges the evolutionists’ assumptions about the age of the dinosaurs’ extinction and compares the current standard evolutionary theory regarding the reason for the dinosaurs’ extinction with the creation account.

This article drew much attention and ridicule, most likely because dinosaurs have become one the best known icons for evolutionists, and (primarily on account of the tremendous size of many dinosaur fossils) are used to support the long ages needed to make a theory like evolution seem plausible. Beginning in the early elementary school years, public school children are indoctrinated with theories surrounding the extinction of the dinosaurs that assume the extinction took place 65 million years ago. By doing this evolutionists challenge the biblical creation account that states that the earth was created in six days approximately 6,000 years ago (according to Lord Usher’s calculations).
