Monsters of the Ancient World
by Bruce Barton
Evolutionary theory holds that dinosaurs dominated the earth during the Age of Reptiles, some 230 to 65 million years ago, before mammals evolved. Then they were all killed off by some catastrophic event, generally supposed to have been an asteroid strike. But mounting evidence indicates that although there was a cataclysmic event in the past, some dinosaurs survived. Hundreds of clues from many different cultures around the world lend support to the contention that they were around much more recently than 65 million years ago. If this is true, serious questions are raised about dinosaur evolution and the evolutionary timescale.
This talk will introduce the subject of dinosaurs, and present evidence from paleontology, archaeology, legends, old chronicles, and the Bible that stories of ancient monsters were more than just myths. This evidence will undergird the case for recent creation and the accuracy of the Bible.
