    There is no such thing, nor was there ever, as a brontosaurus. The closest is the apatosaurus. The 'brontosaurus' was the result of putting the wrong neck and head on another dinosaur...

    Helen!!!

    (Webdog, I promise I am not hijacking the thread!)

    My 4th graders in my bible class wanted to know what happened to the dinosaurs and were they on the ark. I found myself unable to give them accurate information other than my opinion (which isn't accurate)! :laugh:

    They also wanted to know how did the animals get scattered back all across the world after the flood.

    Please give me a "4th grade" version of what to say. I told them that I was going to ask the smartest living person that I knew.....(that's you!)

    I think my favorite would be "Gwangi" from the movie The Valley of Gwangi; a tyrannosaurus rex discovered in a hidden valley, a 'land that time forgot.' We also see a cute little eohippus, a pterasaur or 2, and what I've never lost my laughing interest in-- cowboys trying to rope Gwangi. Too cool -- Show me another movie with cowboys and dinosaurs!

    You're sweet.

    Remember, Noah took pairs of KINDS on the Ark, so there were a lot less animals than we often think of. Second, yes, there were dinosaurs on the Ark, but they would not have been the older adults, but more probably younger juveniles. I'm sure the Lord had mercy on Noah when He caused the animals to congregate at the Ark!

    After the Flood the world was still essentially one continent surrounded by masses of water. It would have been a marshy, steamy world at first, but still one continent. We read in Genesis 10:25 that it was not until the time of Peleg that the earth (eretz) was divided. The Hebrew word literally means 'that which is firm' and has nothing to do with populations of people, but, in the context of Genesis 10:25, land masses.

    The dinosaurs were almost completely wiped out at the time of Peleg. This corresponds to what is known in geology as the K/T extinction event, dating atomically at 65 million years ago but this corresponds to our orbital of 3025 BC. There were a few dinosaurs which evidently survived this time, as we read ancient histories mentioning monsters, see pictures of some on friezes in Rome and Greece, hear mention of them in Chinese history, Egyptian history, etc. Are there any still alive today? I don't know.

    These articles might help:

    God bless.

    You lost me here, what does, "atomically at 65 million years ago but this corresponds to our orbital of 3025 BC" mean?

    Atomic time is time as measured by atomic processes, such as the caesium clock or radiometric dating. It is not constant, as measurements have shown, and is not in agreement with our orbital time scale, which is how we do our calendars (the moon orbiting the earth, the earth orbiting the sun, etc.). When we take measurements from the redshifts from distant galaxies, it tells us the speed of light when the light was emitted from those objects, and that tells us how fast the atomic clocks were going. This can be mathematically correlated to show where it fits in our orbital time frame.

    This has been the focus of my husband's work for many years. He stumbled into it accidently when he discovered that three hundred years' worth of measurements showed the speed of light had not remained constant. At first he figured that in about two weeks he could find where the instrumental or human errors were and that the speed of light would indeed prove to be a constant. The deeper he got into research, the more convinced he became that there had indeed been changes in not only the speed of light but in other things, such as the mass of the electron, something called Planck's Constant, and some other 'constants.' Published measurements have shown these changes, but they seem to be ignored or glossed over by academicians.

    Barry's work (my husband) can be found on his website here:

    But I just love my Brontosaurus burger and Pterodactyl eggs. They wouldn't lie to me on TV. :laugh:

    My favorite dinosaur growing up was the Stegasaurus. Now it is the t-Rex.

    Triceratops with three long horns
    A beak like a parrot
    And a ring around his neck.
    OH, Triceratops with four big legs
    And a tail

    In

    Back!



    I have passed this legacy on to my offspring. The love of Triceratops will never fade from the earth.....:eek:
