    So, were there dinosaurs on the ark?
    If so - how can they get on since they were so big

    If they were on the ark - why do we not have dinosaurs today?

    1) There could have been dinosaurs on the ark. Neither the dinosaurs nor any of the other animals would have had to be adults. Any of them, including dinosaurs, could have been young'uns.

    2) Animals have gone extinct since The Flood. Also, the climate was perfect when the earth was created. After the fall of Adam and after The Flood the climate probably radically changed. True catastrophic climate change for some species.

    Dinosaurs were extinct by the time of Noah. Dinosaurs were extinct well before God created man, as far as I know.

    Yes, they were small not yet adults

    then they would have a full adult life cycle to reproduce

    What about Job 40 and Psalm 74:14, the Leviathan?

    Many think the earth was created less than 7000 years ago, with apparent age, so God just planted weird bones to create the idea the earth is really really old. :)

    Many years ago I visited Dinosaur National Monument in the northwest corner of Colorado. There I saw excavations where Dinosaur bones were sticking out of the ground. How they got there is unknown to me.

    Of course there were dinosaurs on the Ark. As has been pointed out, who said they had to be adults? Were there lions on the ark? Obviously. Was the DoDo bird on the Ark? Why not?

    Why do we not see human fossils with dino fossils? Could the Bible give us the answer? I believe it does. It says humanity was blotted out destroyed.

    Once again a Calvinist asks a question which implies I hold unbiblical views. These folks have no regard for truth.
    The wine at Cana appeared to have existed as grape juice, which had grown on vines, and slowly ripened day after day in the sun.

    Did I say God did not create things with apparent age. Nope.
    Did I say everything we find that indicates great age is actually young? Nope

    Why did you dodge the question? If God did not create things with apparent age, do you hold to Adam being created as a baby? It's a simple yes or no.
