Historical Evidence for Dinosaur and Human Co-existence
by Garrett Dupre
“God made the beasts of the earth[…] and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind; and[…] God created man[.] And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
– Genesis 1:25-31
Did dinosaurs and humans ever live contemporaneously? Certainly. The Book of Genesis makes it clear that every kind of land animal was created on the same day as man; therefore, people and dinosaurs must have walked the earth at the same time for at least some portion of history. This article will inspect the historical evidence for this fact, beginning with a very controversial description of an animal from one of the Bible’s oldest books.
