    The purpose of the Bible is not to inform us about all that ever was or ever will be; otherwise we would have a multi-volume Bible larger than the largest of encyclopaedias. The purpose of the Bible is to tell us what G-d has provided for us in this life. So the Bible tells us almost nothing about the pre-Adamic period and very little about the post-millennial time period. It may be acceptable for people to speculate about these matters, as long as it is understood to be merely speculation and not to be considered truth. However, such speculation is never profitable to our faith or our ability to obey the purposes of G-d in our lives. Genesis 1.2 contains a very important statement. “And darkness was on the face of the deep”. G-d had existed from eternity prior to this point and what we read about in Genesis chapter one was not His first work. But Genesis chapter one tells us nothing about the eternal pre-existent works of G-d. We cannot say that G-d existed eternally but never did anything until the moment that He created the heavens and the earth. G-d is not a G-d of eternal passivity. To put it more bluntly, G-d has existed for untold billions of years and He did not spend all of prehistory doing nothing, but we are not told what He did do. We are told that darkness was on the face of the deep, but darkness is not a substance; it is not something, darkness is in fact the lack of something. Darkness is the lack of light. Darkness actually has no power (although Christians often think that darkness is a rival power to light). Conversely, light is a substance and is powerful in its own right. This is true Biblically and scientifically. As an example: if the ionosphere were to be covered with some form of a thick blanket so as to exclude any light from reaching the earth, and if all light sources on the earth were extinguished, then we could say that a “darkness covered the earth”. If you then were to go to the end of the fishing pier at the beach and light a single candle, the light from that candle would be visible all the way to the horizon. Only an obstructed view of the end of the fishing pier would limit the visibility of the light. The light of one candle has more power than all the darkness, because darkness is not a substance, but the lack of light. The very fact that Genesis chapter one says that darkness covered the earth means that something was acting as a blanket over the earth at that time. It could be safely said that G-d had not existed in darkness prior to that moment, because where G-d is there is light. Yet the Bible tells us almost nothing about this time period, even though that time period is much longer than the time period that stretches from the creation of Adam until the end of this age. Now we have an interesting fact. What we think of as the supernatural world existed prior to Genesis one, but we are not told when G-d created this supernatural world, nor are we told when He created the world we live in now. In Genesis 1.1 the heavens and the earth are portrayed as being pre-existent; then at some point in His eternal existence G-d covered the earth with a blanket and darkness fell on the surface of the earth. Starting from Genesis the chronology of the Bible seems to trace a period of about 6,000 years. But we know that the earth is much older than 6,000 years and that the light we see coming from the stars has been travelling to us for at least tens of thousands of years. So these elements were not created six thousand years ago. But because the creation of the earth and the creation of the other heavenly bodies are not relevant to our salvation, the Bible does not comment on their history. We can speculate that the evil spirits are the disembodied spirits of beings from a pre-Adamic time period. But we can only speculate about that. The theological assumption is that at some point before the creation of Adam the angel Lucifer rebelled against G-d and took with him 1/3 of the seraphim and these spirits from the pre-Adamic creation. Then in Genesis 1.2 we find the words tohu v bohu, 11 which indicate that a judgement came upon this pre-Adamic race; after which G-d started a new creation with Adam. But spirits exist eternally. In fact a spirit could be likened to an algebraic mathematical ray. A ray has a starting point, which is the time when it is created, but it has no end point. This is in contrast to G-d, who in algebraic mathematical terms is a line. In algebraic terms a line has neither a starting point nor an ending point. A line continues forever in the past and forever in the future. Since these rebellious (i.e. evil) spirits of a pre-Adamic creation are deathless, they have continued to exist into our time period, seeking physical bodies to inhabit. The reason they seek to occupy bodies is because these beings are very limited in their completely spiritual state. Creation is incomplete without a physical state. We tend to think of the physical world negatively, and the spiritual realm as being more important. But in fact the Bible tells us that in the future G-d will live forever with us in the physical realm, after He has created the new heaven and the new earth. 1

      Troy Day Be blessed for this lengthy explanation brother.
      I believe many people needed it.
      I personally don’t have any known facts about the pre Adamic period and I don’t think there is any Biblical explanation about the period so we humanely try to travel back into spacetime and establish the truth about the Pre Adamic period thru evidences that surround us e.g. darkness, water (there is no mention of God creating water…in the Bible), the deep and many pre historic and geological archeological factors….which is really a daunting task.
      Hebrews 11:3 says God spoke creation into existence…and I guess this verse is referring specifically to Genesis verse which God says God SAID “Let there be light”….and a sequence of other ” let there be..let there be…” until verse 31 when we are told God saw that EVERYTHING He has created was very good.
      The complexities of life around us and in us doesn’t in any way reflect a six earthly day creation story neither is the vastness of the physical universe(not to mention the spiritual) support the theory.
      God is eternal has no beginning nor end but surely the whole universe has a beginning….
      The Bible clearly states “IN THE BEGINNING….”and goes on to explain what happened in the beginning….ie God created the HEAVENS and the EARTH…and from there downwards the narration is about HOW the earth was created but there is no details on how the heavens were created.Yet you find this statement in chapter 2 verse one ”
      “Thus the heavens and the earth WERE completed in their vast array”…
      Nothing is mentioned about a pre Adamic race or life from Genesis 1:1-31 when God saw all that He has made was very good.
      Pre creation ” elements ” that we find in Genesis 1:1 is not only darkness, but ” void” and water….so the premise is that if it was a BEGINNING then we would have read LET THERE BE WATER…as it was in the case of LIGHT but we don’t see that and this causes us to speculate that something had happened in the beginning BEFORE the beginning mentioned in Genesis 1:1….for how did water or darkness come about?
      But as you have said earlier if the purpose of the Bible is NOT to inform us about all that ever took place or ever will be, then we have to accept that the narration in Genesis 1:1 -2 was cut down to size to fit our kindergarten minds (Aren’t we before God?)
      Interpretation and misinterpretation of Genesis 1 and 2 is only humane…but I don’t believe in a God who just wakes up and helter skeleter begins to throw light left and right not knowing where they will land…
      If a wise man never jumps into a business without first preparing a business plan, without first making a feasibility study how much more would the Wisdom that gave the wise man a mind of that nature of plan and preparation be?
      God is a God of plan and preparedness…
      Albert Einstein once said that God doesn’t play dice with creation..
      I concur.He didn’t create a pre Adamic race that failed, then began afresh…
      He would be a God of trial and error not knowing the end from the beginning….

    Robert Erwine just for you and Gary Micheal Epping with corrections

    The fact that the spiritual world is eternal is confirmed throughout Scripture and we will not take
    much time to explore the subject. However, even science has shown that the spiritual world is eternal.
    Because both the Hebrew and Greek languages have only one word that is interchangeable for wind,
    spirit and breathe, we can know that to God there is no difference between these three concepts. It is
    a scientific statement that matter cannot cease to exist. As a result every time you breathe (that is:
    every time you take in wind or spirit), you are inhaling molecules that were breathed out by Jesus at
    creation. Every breath you take allows you to partake of the Spirit of Jesus.

      William DeArteaga The big meteor that left the Chicxulub Crater and the k9 layer 65 million years ago. It certainly did kill the dinosaurs and the impact most likely would have caused mountains to quake as in Jer 4:24, but I doubt this meteor could have caused the earth to be covered in water as in Gen.1:2. The K-9 layer associated with the impact had no water shown afterwards and a different kind of life appeared after the dinosaurs –the Caenozoic era. Whatever caused the earth to flood in Gen 1:2, had to come after the Caenozoic era. I guess Ken Ham forgot this eras animals on his ark encounter. 🙂

    If one has the right hermeneutic, it’s easy. There is only ONE world wide flood mentioned in Scripture; that flood happened in Gen 6-8 during Noah’s time. Virtually all dinosaurs were destroyed in that flood.

    There were also dino’s after the flood for a short time. The Chinese Emperor had one as a pet. The Inca’s in South America also seen different kinds & both Far East & South Americans drew them on art work, pottery, blankets etc.

    How did they survive the flood? Simple, Noah took a few kinds. You know the average size of all the dinosaurs are about the size of a large sheep. Just get a baby male & female & there you have it.

    The earths atmosphere changed after the flood. Dinosaurs could not survive their size post flood earth. So they died off.

    A question that contributes to this answer is including Why or how Dino’s were so large (the ones that were large).

    In Hebrew verse 22 continues, and monster
    69
    in delicate palaces. This is a difficult word to
    explain because there are two words in the Hebrew Bible that some Christian commentators believe
    are actually different spellings of the same word and other Christian commentators believe are two
    separate and unrelated words. The two words are tannim
    70
    and tannin.
    71
    This word also occurs
    once in the feminine plural form tanot,
    72
    which could be the feminine plural form of either tannim or
    tannin. In the appendix at the end of this chapter I have listed all the places where these words occur
    in the Hebrew text, how these words were translated into the Septuagint and also how they are
    translated into English.
    The rabbis understood each of the three Hebrew words to correspond primarily to the Greek
    word dragon.
    73
    Indeed the Authorised Version of the Bible
    74
    usually translates each of the three
    words by the English word dragon. So it is clear that the ancient rabbis thought that tannim and
    tannin were the same word, or at least had the same definition. Most languages have words that mean
    exactly the same thing but vary slightly in their spelling.
    75
    The variant spelling and pronunciation is
    usually a result of geographical differences between the people who use such words (i.e.: the
    difference in the spellings of British and American words).

    So the Hebrew words tannim and tannin are interchangeable, and now we must establish what
    they mean. In Genesis 1.21 this word is used of creatures that are related to the sea (also in Job 7). In
    Exodus 7 we know that the creature that transformed from the rod of Moses had a tail. In Deut. 32.33
    the word is paired with snakes. In many other passages the word is used in relationship to other types
    of animals that feed on carrion. So we have the image of a creature that lives on the land and in the
    sea, has a tail, feeds on carrion and reminds people of a snake. To me the only creature that most
    closely matches all these descriptions belongs to the reptile family, which includes alligators,
    crocodiles, lizards, iguanas and gila monsters.
    The Hebrew words tannim and tannin are translated into Greek as dragon.
    76 Because of the
    great mythology that has developed in Europe about dragons, we need to take a moment to understand
    what this word actually means in Greek. The root of this Greek word is derkomai,
    77
    meaning to look
    at. So the original meaning of the word dragon
    78
    in Greek means a creature that has very good
    eyesight.
    In the New Testament the word dragon only appears in the Book of Revelation,
    79
    where it talks
    about a creature who took control of one third of the stars of heaven.
    80
    The dragon fights against
    Michael and against the angels who are aligned with Michael. The war takes place in the heavenlies.
    So there is a general idea that this is a reference to Satan (who was an angel of light, a seraph) and
    because he takes one third of the seraphim with him in this war, a theory has developed that Satan
    was once a co-eq

      In the Septuagint the word dragon is usually an interpretation of the Hebrew tannim and tannin,
      however there are eleven exceptions to this general interpretation. Noting these exceptions gives us a
      way of defining what the rabbis had in mind when they used the Greek word dragon.

    Leviathan.
    This word is never actually translated into English. Leviathan is simply a transliteration of the
    Hebrew word. The description of Leviathan in Job 40.15-23
    91
    is very strange; he has fire coming out
    of his mouth and beams of light from his eyes (40.18-19). Pride is a shield to him (40.15). This is not
    the description of any earthly creature. But the fact that it specifies that pride is a shield to him would
    probably be a reference to Satan, who sinned through pride. So the rabbis seem to be saying that
    Satan is the dragon

      Because I also believe they remained for quite a while.

    The rabbis also translate the Hebrew word na-hkash

    had the general idea of a snake or a serpent when they translate nahkash as dragon. But the other

    I imagine Noah was a pretty smart guy since he preach the gospel for 150 years! Therefore I think he could figure out with these monstrous animals “called dinosaurs” he could easily take the eggs and incubate them for the period of time on the ark. Then they could hatch after the ark landed! No feeding necessary, no large cages necessary. Since people are speculating here…

I don’t discount that there are many theistic evolutionists in the OEC crowd, but not me. I can’t see it in the fossil record. I do see an incredibly old earth full of many animals that showed up without warning and disappeared without warning in mass creation and extinction events like the Cambrian explosion, over millions of years. I also see Adam being created outside of the garden, being brought into the garden, working the garden, naming the animals, getting lonely, God putting him to sleep, performing a wifeendectomy, waking him back up and him seeing his newly made helpmate and say, “At long last!”, all in one 24hr time period…..yea I can’t believe that all took place in one 24 hour period, which is but one of the 5 literal meanings of “yom”. No instead if the other meaning of “yom” is understood, then all the pieces fit. The good news is that this is really not a salvation issue anyway.

    Easy. Genesis Day 5 included the period covering the Cambrian Explosion and the evolution of flying creatures and “gadowl tanniyn” (aka great reptiles, which is your dinosaurs). Day 6 covered the period including the evolution of mammals and eventually hominids.

    Those who hold to a young earth creationist view based upon a surface reading and absolute literal interpretation in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary do the biblical text, and the faith, a great injustice.

    The Bible says animal after it’s kind was on the ark, that includes the animals we now call dinosaurs. Though the Bible doesn’t say so, but it is logical that each animal may have been young and everyone fit on the ark. In the Bible there are animals mentioned and described such as livathon and behemoth. Those may have been what we now call dinosaurs. Nearly every culture has stories of what they call dragons, they might have been what we now call dinosaurs. What happened to them? Likely they went extinct from environmental conditions, disease, or being hunted into extinction by man.

It also exposes the ludicrous explanation the old earth’s and biogenesis types are offering for the fact that the Chinese, American Indians and numerous other cultures drew pictures of them. There is also a 16th century grave with a picture of a brontosaurus (?) on the casket. There were no archaeologists around at that time. And then the testimony of Job to Leviathan? There are lots of questions.

    Answers in Genesis says that the animals on the ark were babies so they wouldn’t take up so much room and require nearly as much food as grown animals. If dinosaurs were on the ark then they got off of it when everyone/everything else did. I read somewhere that several species of animals went extinct after leaving the ark because they didn’t have an adequate food source. To me, this makes no sense; why would God preserve them from the flood only to let them starve afterward? That’s crazy.

    Personally, and this is my opinion, I’m inclined to believe that God placed the dinosaurs in the fossil record when He made the earth. It explains why no human remains are found in the same geologic strata as the dinosaur remains. It explains why there are no living dinosaurs today (If God provided a food source for everything else, why not dinos?). Nor, does my position contradict the young earth theory by feeding into evolution.

    I’m aware of two arguments people can claim against my position. First, that God made every beast of the field and brought it to Adam to be named (Genesis 2:19). When you go to the Hebrew language to learn the definition of ‘beast’ you find that it means ‘fresh.’ Well, if God placed dinosaurs in the geologic column they wouldn’t have been ‘fresh’ and present for Adam to name. Nor would they have been on the ark which does away with the need for an event to make them extinct.

    Second, while Job does mention the Behemoth (40:15) and Leviathan (41:1) these are defined by the Hebrew as a ‘water ox such as a hippo’ and a ‘wreathed animal, a serpent (esp. a crocodile), respectively. Additional references to these creatures in Psalms and Isaiah have the same definitions.

    Well, why did God create dinosaurs, but tell us so little about them? In my opinion, God created them to test mankind. Three different times in scripture, Garden of Eden, Job and Jesus in His wilderness experience, God tested people. God is always testing people. Dinosaurs are a perfect test to determine if man will trust what he sees or if he will trust what God says. For example, people who don’t want to believe in God love to use dinosaurs as their fall back ‘proof’ that the earth is billions of years old. When they believe this, it allows them to laugh at the Genesis account of creation which, of course, means they fail the test of trusting God.
