A story covered by the British Broadcasting Corporation (click here) about a supposed dinosaur stampede reveals new scientific research overturning the thoughts of earlier scientists. It turns out that fossilised footprints, instead of revealing a stampede of dinosaurs, in fact suggest dinosaurs swimming through water. Although the story doesn't actually make the conclusion, it is entirely possible that the footprints in Australia are evidence of dinosaurs trying to escape the flood waters in the tme of Noah.
As I have written before, all the evidence to me now shows that dinosaurs lived at the same time as humans, and the flood is the reason why we find fossils today. The only discrepancy between the BBC story and the Bible is the alleged dates in the BBC article.
This booklet, What really happened to the dinosaurs? helped me understand Biblical history in light of the fossil evidence found in the world today. And believing in the early chapters helped affirm my faith in Jesus, just as he implied it would.
John 5:46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?
Noah's flood was a real historical event. I'm preaching on this very theme on May 26th. The flood teaches us that God is very patient, but his judgement is coming.
Matthew 24: But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. 37 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. 38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, 39 and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
When Jesus returns, will you be ready? Or will you miss the boat?
