Dinosaurs and the Bible

Why can I not get a straight answer about the perplexing questions – why are the dinosaurs not mentioned in the bible? AND Why were there no dinosaurs on Noah’s ark? I am sure I am not the first to ask these questions and I am sure I will not be the last. AND if in fact they are mentioned (by some other description) why is it that their bones are being discovered? Where is the garden of Eden? Where is Noah’s ark? Where are the remains of the broken tablet that the 10 commandments were chiselled on? How about cave dwellers? How did they, the dinosaurs, fit into the bigger picture? Where they perhaps a first draft? Where they perhaps akin to building a Lego model and then perhaps changing your mind, tearing it down and starting again?

Some people have said that the dinosaurs were wiped out in the great flood that killed off most people exact Noah and his family. So if this is the case, and we attribute a much higher intellect and an all-knowing being, should it not have been evident that the dinosaurs would be out of place in such a world?   

It is said that Adam and Eve had a hard life when they were evicted from the Garden of Eden. The tale of what happened after they left appears to be told through a ‘third party’. It all appears to be presumption, assumption and hearsay. They were not the words of Adam and Eve themselves. At no point does it appear to relay any primary data only secondary data.

Newsreader Good evening. Here is the news on Friday, the 27th of Geldof. Archaeologists near Mount Sinai have discovered what is believed to be a missing page from the Bible. The page is presently being carbon dated in Bonn. If genuine it belongs at the beginning of the Bible and is believed to read “To my darling Candy. All characters portrayed within this book are fictitious and any resemblance to persons living or dead is purely coincidental.” The page has been universally condemned by church leaders.
