    Of course. Didn't you ever see a show from the 60's called It's About Time?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpFZWS30OOo

    In case anyone's never heard of this show before, I resist the urge to give a clear hint by naming its creator/producer and his contemporary 'hit' show.

    There are some reputable conservative Bible commentators who believe that the creatures that the KJV (and a few other translations) calls "Behemoth" and "Leviathan" actually refer to creatures that we would call "dinosaurs."

    One of these commentators was Henry Morris. Some credit Dr. Morris's writings (most notable among them are The Genesis Flood and his commentary on the book of Genesis entitled The Genesis Record) with the resurgence of the "Young Earth Creationist" (YEC) movement.

    There are also many (if not most) prominent educators and technical scientists who have been affiliated with the Institute for Creation Research (which Dr. Morris help to found) that also believe that these two creatures that are mentioned in the Book of Job are also what we'd call dinosaurs today.

    One thing that led Dr. Morris to believe that what we'd call dinosaurs did, in fact, co-exist with humans at one time was the discovery of a fossilized rock on which there was a foot print of a very large reptile-like creature over which was the foot print of a human.

    The fossilized rock that Dr. Morris included in his The Genesis Flood can be viewed at a Creation Science museum not too far from the Paluxy River in eastern TX. (This is a small river that flows into another river in eastern TX. [It's about 100 miles SE of Dallas, TX.]

    Morris claims that this fossilized rock was actually taken from the Paluxy River bed.

    Some historical apologists believe dinosaurs existed up until 1500 AD. Why are there dinosaur drawings on cave walls? There are numerous reports and art depicting dragons after the time of Christ, and the word dinosaur wasn't used until 1841. Most believe dragons were actually dinosaurs because the drawings and reports look like a dinosaur as we have made them out to be.

    I have answered that before.....perhaps not in response to you. Yes, I believe death existed LONG before the event we know as the "fall".

    You did not answer my question. Do you believe in the literal six day account of creation?

    Also, never forget, Janet Reno proves there is life on Mars, and Nancy Pelosi proves there is life on Uranus.

    I believe you are onto something here. One of my hobbies is genealogy, and as of recent I have used ancestry.com. Some of the lines dies out quickly, some I have back into before 1000. It is very striking how many coat of arms have a dragon on it. The flag of Wales is a dragon.

    Yes I do, but cannot figure out what that has to do with the existence of dinosaurs. It is a fact they existed, unless God planted the bones in the ground to give employment to archeologists.

    At this point in time, I disagree with you about the timing of the Creation. However, I do keep an open mind, and things like dinosaurs is one reason why.
