100 Million Year-Old Dinosaurs?

This article was inspired after reading the news about another dinosaur nesting sight that was recently discovered, in the Golden Gate Highlands National Park in South Africa.

"The eggs, embryos, and nests come from the rocks of a nearly vertical road cut only 25 metres long," said Prof. Robert Reisz of the University of Toronto at Mississauga, who led the study. It was also widely publicized that the new discovery is apparently more than 100 million years older than previously known nesting sites.

In an older article on this blog, The Master Plan to Destroy Christian Families, posted on 29 May 2010, I briefly touched on the subject of dinosaurs mentioning, among other things, that the comprehensive Wikipedia article dealing with dinosaurs makes no mention of the oldest written description of these creatures, as recorded in the Book of Job, i.e. – the behemoth in chapter 40 and the leviathan in chapter 41.

Incidentally, the behemoth described in Job has been commonly identified as possibly being a Sauropod dinosaur, of which Brachiosaurus was a prominent example [source]. They were by far the largest plant-eating creatures to ever roam the earth. The other creature, leviathan, described in Job is a picture-perfect description of a Sarcosuchus, commonly called "SuperCroc". It was one of the largest giant crocodile-like reptiles that ever lived, and capable of surviving both in water and on land. Several of their fossils have been discovered in Gadoufaoua, Niger in the Ténéré Desert, which is part of the Sahara. This colossal armour-plated creature weighed approximately 8 to 10 tonnes. It is no wonder that the awesome description of this ferocious beast in the Book of Job, chapter 41, mentions that even the mighty are afraid of this creature, and that attacking it with iron weapons, such as the sword, spear, dart, or even the habergeon, had little effect… “He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood. The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble." (Job 41: 25-28)

Incidentally (for those who are wondering), most scholars agree that the Book of Job chronicles events that took place between 1280 and 1270 BC – about 100 years before the Exodus...(more than 3,200 years ago). It is also evident from the text of the book itself that it is older than any other book of the Bible. The most compelling evidence for the antiquity of the book of Job is its use of Hebrew words. Click here to download a  PDF copy (only 551 KB) of G. L. Bartholomew’s book titled, “Dating the Book of Job”. The book contains a lot of number crunching, but it is a worthwhile read, for those who are interested in the subject.

Wikipedia’s ongoing deception:

We’re in the year 2012 already, and with Wikipedia content being continuously updated and revised by an ever-growing number of editors, it puzzles me why there are still no Biblical references to these creatures. Why is the Biblical behemoth simply described as “a mythological beast mentioned in the Book of Job,” and the leviathan simply described as “a sea monster referred to in the Bible.” Has anyone of those editors ever gone to the trouble of actually reading the vibrant and detailed descriptions in the Book of Job?

Even the pages dealing respectively with Sarcosuchus and Brachiosaurusmake no mention of the fact that  the descriptions pertaining to “leviathan” or “behemoth” in the Book of Job are in fact accurate depictions of these two species of dinosaur.

Wikipedia’s main “dinosaur” article, which is quite comprehensive, does not provide one single reference to the substantial evidence that has emerged over the years - evidence which strongly suggests that dinosaurs actually co-existed with intelligent humans.

Evidence that dinosaurs co-existed with humans:

Various petroglyphs, hieroglyphs, and paintings, closely resembling the appearance of different types of dinosaurs, have been found in various places throughout the world. 
For example:
  • The petroglyphs at Natural Bridges, National Monument Utah, whose creation has been attributed to the Anasazi Indians who lived in the region approximately between the fifth and fourteenth centuries AD.
  • The 2500 year old ceramic fired figurines discovered at the foot of El Toro Mountain on the outskirts of Acambaro, Mexico.
  • Dinosaurs depicted on the artwork of a Mesopotamian cylinder seal, dated at 3300 BC.
  • Dinosaurs depicted on various man-made artefacts such as pottery and tapestry, excavated in the ancient tombs of the Nazca culture in the South American country of Peru, and  believed to date back to 700 AD.

Besides the dinosaur depiction from the middle ages included in Athanasius Kircher's 1678 book Mundus Subterraneus, several ancient historians, including Josephus and Herodotus, have written about flying reptiles. In addition, ancient literature is filled with references to dragons. (The term “dinosaur” wasn’t coined until 1841).

Incidentally, the May 2010 posting provides a very straightforward explanation as to why some of these creatures (dragons) spewed out flames of fire and smoke from their bellies.

The modern-day consensus:

The modern-day consensus is that dinosaurs are a diverse group of animals of the clade and superorder Dinosauria. They appeared during the Triassic period, approximately 230 million years ago, and were the dominant terrestrial vertebrates for 135 million years, from the beginning of the Jurassic (about 200 million years ago) until the end of the Cretaceous (65.5 million years ago), when the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event led to the extinction of most dinosaur groups at the close of the Mesozoic era. Source: Dinosaurs: the most complete, up-to-date encyclopedia for dinosaur lovers of all ages. New York: Random House. ISBN 0-375-82419-7.

The addition of the word “most” in the above paragraph does not imply that massive creatures, such as the “leviathan” or “behemoth”, as described in the Book of Job, survived at the close of the Mesozoic era, and/or that they co-existed with humans. It is rather an implicit reference to the fact that some birds survived, and that these feathered creatures continue the dinosaur lineage to the present day. In other words, the experts are now implying that dinosaurs are, in fact, not extinct, as the lineage of certain types can be found in birds. Although this fact truly confuses the whole dinosaur dilemma even further, as it has always been my opinion that modern-day reptiles such as, crocodiles for example, are the close relatives of certain dinosaur types, it also stirs the imagination regarding old Chinese stories about flying dragons.

Conclusion…

Although mankind has made amazing technological advances in a relativity short period of time, there’s also been an enormous amount of vital knowledge that has been deliberately suppressed, hidden and/or destroyed. This “vital knowledge” that is being withheld from us has nothing to do with a type of wisdom or intelligence that generates further technological advancements… It is rather a type of knowledge that effects us mentally, morally, and spiritually. The destruction and/or distortion of Biblical Truths (God’s Word) is merely one form of assault that has a profound effect on how we perceive and balance certain concepts such as, "morality", "God" and "truth".

Many facts in the Bible have already been proven scientifically correct. One day, when we it becomes ‘common knowledge’ that ‘TIME’ is not the same in different places in space, and that the concept of ‘TIME’ is effected by other factors such as, VELOCITY and MASS for example, and that the closeness of all the Universe's mass at the time of "the beginning" could thus have effected ‘TIME’, will we begin to understand that humans (not apes) were created at the same ‘TIME’ as dinosaurs, and that fashionable talk concerning dinosaur fossils that are 100 million years old, and thus could not have co-existed with humans, is all a rather hollow and dubious scheme that does nothing to advance ‘knowledge’, but rather smothers it.

“Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.” 
(God speaking  -  Book of Job 41:15)

In the interim… while we’re being bull-dazzled by the co-workers of satan, who are doing their utmost to take control of our lives and our minds, LET’S STAY FOCUSED ON GOD’S WORD.
