What were “Dinosaurs”?

As one person once said, “I felt literally sick once when I went to a dinosaur display as I overheard parents telling their children how many millions of years ago each dinosaur lived. And then I got sad as I realised what was happening. Those precious children were being taught that the Bible is a lie!!!”

Firstly, we need to address the word Dynasauros – “Dinosaurs”, because that word never existed before 1841.  The word “Dinosaurs” has been conditioned into our minds to mean a creature that lived on Earth millions of years ago and were destroyed by an asteroid.  However that is not the case, as there were no “Dinosaurs” as that word was only invented around 170 years ago! A more truthful and accurate term would be to call them “terrible lizards” because that is what “dinosaurs” means.  And remember, there were no “dinosaurs”, that word was invented in 1841, so there are NO such things as “dinosaurs” that we have been brought up to believe in.  “Dinosaurs” is one big deceptive lie direct from Satan, the father of lies, John 8:44, to deceive the entire world with, Rev 12:9.  And let’s be honest, we all have been lied to and deceived with the “dinosaur” stories of them living on Earth millions of years ago.

Notice the photo above, this is Richard Owen’s illustration of a camel’s skeleton.  Look carefully, if you only were to see the bones, it would look like a “dinosaur” wouldn’t it?  So many of the “dinosaur” fossils we see today may very well look very different in real life back then to the imaginary images they claim they would have looked like.

And most people do not realise that the average “dinosaur” was about the size of a sheep.  Some of them were the size of chickens.  A few of them got to be gigantic.  These creatures are just different kinds of lizards/reptiles.  Most people are not aware that lizards and reptiles never stop growing for the entirety of their life.  The older they get, the bigger they get.  The largest “dinosaur” is only the size of a basketball at birth however.

Lizards and reptiles, NOT “Dinosaurs” were created on Day 6 with other land animals and man(humans) in the book of Genesis 1:24-31. 

Since we were children, Satan and false teachers have brainwashed us, and drilled into our psyche the lie and false idea and belief that the Earth and universe is millions and even billions of years old.  And most people just go along with this lie, never question it, never do their own research and learning, they just parrot the lie to others, even to their own children!  

However, anyone who diligently studies the Scriptures and scientific facts will learn that the universe is very young and the Earth is nearly 6,000 years old, not millions of years old. For credible and solid evidence of this, and how evolution is wrong, please watch this video (Click on photo to be taken to video):

Any sincere Scripture student will calculate that the Earth is no more than 6,000 years old, because the Creator gave us  a “birth certificate.” For example, using a personal birth certificate, a person can calculate how old he is at any point. It is similar with the Earth. Genesis 1 says that the earth was created on the first day of creation (Genesis 1:1-5). From there, we can begin to calculate the age of the earth.

Let’s do a rough calculation to show how this works. The age of the Earth can be estimated by taking the first five days of creation (from earth’s creation to Adam), then following the genealogies from Adam to Abraham in Genesis 5 and 11, then adding in the time from Abraham to today.

Adam was created on day 6, so there were five days before him. If we add up the dates from Adam to Abraham, we get about 2,000 years, using the Masoretic Hebrew text of Genesis 5 and 11. Most scholars would agree that Abraham lived about 2,000 B.C. (4,000 years ago).

So a simple calculation is:

5 days
+ ~2,000 years
+ ~4,000 years

= ~6,000 years

At this point, the first five days are negligible. Quite a few people have done this calculation using the Masoretic text (which is what most English translations are based on) and with careful attention to the biblical details, they have arrived at the same time frame of about 6,000 years, or about 4000 B.C which brings us to around 6,000 year old Earth. Two of the most popular, and perhaps best, are a recent work by Dr. Floyd Jones and a much earlier book by Archbishop James Ussher (1581–1656). See below:

Jones and Ussher

Name Age Calculated Reference and Date
Archbishop James Ussher 4004 B.C. The Annals of the World, A.D. 1658
Dr. Floyd Nolan Jones 4004 B.C. The Chronology of the Old Testament, A.D. 1993


Any serious Bible student also knows about the 1 day equals 1000 years teaching in Bible prophecies, and the 1,000 year “Sabbatical rest” coming, so 1 day equals 1000 years in Bible prophecy and there are 7 days per week (“7000″years) cycles, so the 1000 year “Sabbatical rest” is to come after the Earth is exactly 6000 years old, which we believe is any year now.

We need to ask ourselves, “do we really believe what the Holy Scripture teaches?”  If your answer is YES, then you have to agree that the Earth is no more than 6000 years old and that man and animals, lizards and reptiles used to live a lot longer than what they do today, for example, Adam lived 930 years (Genesis 5:5). Seth lived 912 years (Genesis 5:8). Enosh lived 905 years (Genesis 5:11). Kenan lived 910 years (Genesis 5:14). Mahalalel lived 895 years (Genesis 5:17). Jared lived 962 years (Genesis 5:20). Enoch lived 365 years before Yahweh took him (Genesis 5:22–24). Lamech lived 777 years (Genesis 5:21). Genesis 9:29 records that Noah lived 950 years.  But the oldest man in the Bible, outliving all the rest, is a man named Methuselah, who lived 969 years (Genesis 5:27).  If someone denies all this, they need to renounce their belief in the Scriptures and throw their Bibles in the trash can and renounce Creationism and become an Atheist and Evolutionist!

Long ago everything lived longer, man, plants, lizards and reptiles etc. But as sin deepened and the atmosphere and earthly environment became more and more toxic and polluted, man and living creatures decayed a lot quicker, that as a result, instead of living to 900 years a person is fortunate to make 100 years maximum and reptiles and lizards also die a lot sooner than in the days of Adam and Noah etc.

As mentioned already, lizards and reptiles never stop growing. Man has a cut-off mechanism,  lizards and reptiles don’t! They keep growing for as long as they live, so back then that’s why they were so large because they lived to be so much older. 

In August 2014, an alligator which measured 15 feet and 9 inches long and weighed 1,011.5 pounds was found by members of the Stokes family, see photo below. Looks a bit like a “dinosaur” doesn’t it?

That’s all “dinosaurs” were,  lizards and reptiles that never stopped growing and cause everything lived longer back then they became HUGE! So lizards and reptiles (“dinosaurs”) grew and grew for hundreds of years and never stopped growing!

If lizards and reptiles today lived as long as they did back then, we would today also have GIANT lizards and reptiles known as “dinosaurs”, and you would see GIANT turtles for examplec the size of a CAR. But cause they don’t live as long as they did back then, they die before they can get that big.  

However, having said that, look at these photos, there are large creatures roaming the Earth today, they are the size of “dinosaurs”.

Certain lizards and reptiles were killed in Noah’s flood and ceased to exist, hence, we no longer see certain lizards and reptiles today. We only see remnants of their skeletons because they were not chosen to enter Noah’s ark and were left behind to die in the flood.

Look how similar the bearded dragon for example looks to a “dinosaur”.

If a bearded dragon was to live as long as lizards and reptiles lived in the day of Noah etc, for hundreds and hundreds of years, it would today look like a gigantic “dinosaur”.

It is a fact, the oldest living animals today are reptiles.  So we conclude, there were no such things as “dinosaurs” that evolved from something else that lived millions of years ago on Earth.  That is a lie that originated in Satan to feed the development of atheism and evolutionism, to deceive the world into doubting the accuracy of the Scriptures and the Creator and Creationism.

We encourage everyone to come back to biblical truth and stop believing the deceptive lies you were brainwashed, conditioned, wired and programmed to believe as a child.
