Dinosaurs, the Cross,
and the Bible
By Ken Ham
An aura of mystery surrounds the dinosaurs.
did they come from? Did they evolve? Did they really live millions
of years ago? What happened to them? Are there any living today?
Has any human being ever seen a live dinosaur?
Children and adults alike are absolutely fascinated
by these mysterious monsters. Numerous books and movies have been
produced to satisfy a seemingly insatiable hunger for information
on these puzzling creatures. The truth of the matter, however,
is that there are no real mysteries at all, once you have key
information that is not generally known and is withheld from the
Let’s take a walk through history and uncover
some amazing facts that will answer many of your questions about
these “terrible lizards.”
Dinosaurs Really Exist?
certainly did roam the Earth in the ancient past! Fossils of dinosaurs
have been found all over the world, and their bones are displayed
in museums for all to see. Scientists have been able to reconstruct
many of their skeletons, so we know much about how they may have
Were Dinosaurs Found?
story of their discovery began back in the 1820s, when Gideon
Mantell, an English doctor, found some unusual teeth and bones
in a quarry. Dr. Mantell realized there was something very different
about these animal remains, and believed that he had found an
entirely new group of reptiles. By 1841, about nine types of these
different reptiles had been uncovered, including two called Megalosaurus
At this time, a famous British scientist (and
creationist), Dr. Richard Owen, coined the name “Dinosauria,”
meaning “terrible lizard,” for this is what the huge bones made
him think of.
Makes Dinosaurs Different?
than the huge size of some dinosaurs, the major feature that really
distinguishes dinosaurs from other reptiles (such as crocodiles)
is the position of their limbs. Dinosaurs had posture that was
fully erect, similar to that in mammals. Most other reptiles have
limbs in a sprawling position. For instance, compare the way a
crocodile ‘walks’ with that of, say, a cow. Dinosaurs would have
moved like a cow, with the limbs supporting the body from beneath.
Crocodiles ‘waddle’, as their limbs project sideways from their
Big Were Dinosaurs?
were as small as chickens, and others were even smaller. Of course,
some dinosaurs were very large, weighing in at an estimated 80
tons and standing 40 feet high! The average size of a dinosaur,
however, was probably about that of a small horse.
You’ll Never Forget: AIG's Creation Museum
With summer time rapidly approaching, and folks
looking to stay close to home to save money on vacations, I have
a great recommendation!
If you haven’t visited Answers In Genesis’ (AiG) Creation Museum yet, then I highly recommend that you do
so. It will be a fun and
educational experience that you and your family will never forget!
The Creation Museum, located just seven miles
west of the Cincinnati Airport, (a short, leisurely and scenic
six-hour drive from St. Louis) features some incredible exhibits
designed by a former Universal Studios exhibit director. This
state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot museum brings the pages of
the Bible to life for
the entire family.
A fully engaging sensory experience, the Museum
offers beautiful murals, realistic scenery, computer-generated
visual effects, over 50 exotic animals, life-sized people and
dinosaur animatronics, a state-of-the-art planetarium, and a special-effects
theater complete with misty sea breezes and rumbling seats.
And this is just a fraction of the exhibits and things
to experience at the Museum.
You’ll want to plan at least a day’s visit
(two would be better) to even begin to take it all in. The museum’s
exhibits will captivate you, entertain you and educate you while
revealing biblical truths about creation and God’s plan of salvation.
AiG has designed the Museum in a particular
order to emphasize the Bible
allowing each guest to explore the Bible
and science through what they call “The Seven C’s of Biblical
History.” The Seven C’s stand for Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe,
Confusion, Christ, Cross, and Consummation.
Your walk is a one-way, self-guided tour that
begins at the Canyon Entrance where you’ll first visit a dinosaur
excavation. From there you’ll travel back 6,000 years to
the dawn of creation witnessing the true time line of the universe
unfold through the Seven C’s.
The walk through takes an average of 2 to 3
Adam Giving Names to God’s creatures

dinosaurs. Explore many
of these amazing creatures along with fossilized dinosaur eggs,
a Triceratops skeleton casting and much more!
Note: the dinosaur den is not handicapped accessible and
is located on the Lower Level Palm Plaza.
The Petting Zoo—New in 2008
Newly established in 2008, you’ll see a variety

designed to give guests a hands-on experience with some of God’s
amazing creatures and is located on the museum grounds, across
