Does the Bible Mention Dinosaurs?
Many people think that the bible doesn't talk about dinosaurs. They use this as an excuse for not believing in creation. The fact is, there are 3 animals in the bible that are unfamiliar to us. These animals are the tanniyn, behemoth and the leviathan. The bible gives a very detailed description of the behemoth and the leviathan.
then why did it take so long for the church to formally recognize hte fossiles we were finding as dinosaurs?

It clearly doesn't since nonavian dinosaurs have been extinct for 65 million years.

Wait, I take that back. Dinosaurs are mentioned very early in the Bible. According to the Bible they were created on the 5th day.

WTF? How do you go from talking about the suicide rate of countries per capital, to the suicides rate of catholic priests, as proof of the suicide rate of countries.?
scienctific deduction at it's best.lol
ummm...we were talking about the nonbelievers being happier and healthier. in fact, it was you that brought up the subject about people being taught your cult faith would not have as many suicides?

can you not even remember your own posts that started this thread?

of course teaching a false godless,souless, nihilistic "your life is nothing but the result of an interaction of chemical" view of science to kids is the way to go.
no wonder that murder and suicide rate is up so high among kids.
just in case you forgot....

have you thought about re-thinking your world view to something you can actually defend?
Your claim was that love pain and happiness were chemical processes. Which would be physical evidence, not non-physical.sorry your the one who loses.

"dinosaurs" is a new science made up word. The name Dragons were used for many year before dinosaurs.

Nope, I am correct. I was also correct about Jesus predicting that he would be buried the wrong amount of time.

And you don't even know where the word dragon came from.

Here is a hint, it does not apply to dinosaurs.

Anyone care to explain the discrepancy in the fossil records?

I thought Neanderthals were special. But there's one particular human species that caught my attention - the rhodesian men, or the homo rhodesiensis. They lived longer than the neanderthals, spanning three pleistocene periods: lower, middle, and upper paleolithic, as early as 500,00 years and as recent as 13,000 years ago. No photos available except for one stinking black and white photo of a side view skull. The front view, only a replica of the skull. I find that very strange because there are other fossil records for much earlier fossils such as the jaw of homo habilis with a full set of teeth dating 1.75 million years ago and the earliest found skull from the miocene period!

Should I dig deeper? or should I look for more skeletons in the closet? LOL.

When did I say that? i said their effects can be measured. and yes, that would be physical evidence of love or pain.

Why is this a problem for you? why do you consider this a discrepency?

Yeah right, just electrochemical interactions! The answer still does not define sentience, ie your own ability to think and reason.
