"Look at the land beast, Behemoth. I created him as well as you. Grazing on grass, docile as a cow -- Just look at the strength of his back, the powerful muscles of his belly. His tail sways like a cedar in the wind; his huge legs are like beech trees. His skeleton is made of steel, every bone in his body hard as steel. Most magnificent of all my creatures, but I still lead him around like a lamb! The grass-covered hills serve him meals, while field mice frolic in his shadow. He takes afternoon naps under shade trees, cools himself in the reedy swamps, Lazily cool in the leafy shadows as the breeze moves through the willows. And when the river rages he doesn't budge, stolid and unperturbed even when the Jordan goes wild. But you'd never want him for a pet -- you'd never be able to housebreak him!" ...If you can’t hold your own against his glowering visage, how, then, do you expect to stand up to me? Who could confront me and get by with it? I’m in charge of all this—I run this universe! (MSG -- Job 40:15 - 41:11).

Dinosaurs Coexisted With Man

Did dinosaurs die out 65 million years ago as Evolution teaches? Certainly not. This theory was developed before many dinosaur fossil discoveries had been made. More and more "fresh" fossils are being found - with blood still inside. In fact, many fossils may have blood in them, but they simply haven't been cut open to look inside because the evolutionists thought it impossible that any blood could still exist after 65 million years. Cells and DNA break down in just thousands of years. Yet we are finding fossils which are supposed to be 65 million years old - with blood still inside. This tells us that the bones are quite young.

Reptiles never stop growing. So therefore, a dinosaur is simply a very old reptile that has grown very large, but of species which are extinct today. But reptiles don't live as long today.

In Nurluc, France they renamed their city in honor of a dragon slaying. The animal they killed that was larger than an ox and had three horns coming out of its head. The well-known old European science book, “Historia Animalium,” says that dragons were not extinct in the 1500’s A.D., but were very rare and relatively small. In the Bible, the book of Job 40:15 (probably from about 2000 B.C.) describes in great detail the Behemoth. Huge, lumbering and living in swamps, it had a tail “like a cedar tree.” Evolutionists claim this creature was an elephant or hippopotamus; but with a tail like a cedar tree? I think not.

Marco Polo lived in China for 17 years, around 1271 A.D. Upon his return from Asia, he reported of families raising dragons, yoking them to royal chariots for parades and special occasions, and using dragon parts for medicinal purposes. Interestingly, the twelve signs of the Chinese zodiac are animals, eleven of which are everyday, extant creatures (rat, horse, dog, ox, rabbit, tiger, snake, ram, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.) The twelfth is the dragon. Why would the Chinese include the “mythological” dragon with these common living animals? And we trust Marco for other history why not also dinosaurs or "Dragons"?

This carving (left) was found on a Cambodian temple wall. It is an excellent depiction of a stegosaurus, many hundreds of years old. How could they have known about stegosaurs if they had never seen one? The Ica Stone (right), found in the Ica valley in Peru. The people lived there about 3,000 years ago. How did they know what dinosaurs looked like? Below are some of the evidences for Plesiosaurs still living in Lake Okanogan (Ogopogo), Lake Champlain (Champ) and Loch Ness (Nessie), etcetera.

A story appeared in the May 1965 issue of Fate Magazine:In a first-person account, Edward Brian McCleary claimed to have had a terrifying experience on March 24, 1962 off Pensacola, Florida. McCleary and four friends paddled a life raft out to dive on a wrecked ship. A sudden storm came up, forcing them away from land. At night, a fog closed in on them. In the fog, they hear something moving, and then saw what looked momentarily like a “like a telephone pole about ten feet high with a bulb on top” in the fog. The object was, however, a plesiosaur-like animal. More specifically, “The neck was about 12 feet long, brownish-green and smooth looking. The head was like that of a sea-turtle, except more elongated with teeth. There appeared to be what looked like a dorsal fin when it dove under for the last time. Also, as best I am able to recall, the eyes were green with oval pupils.” This creature proceeded to kill McCleary’s companions one by one. McCleary alone managed to make it to a protruding mast of the wreck they were diving (the U.S.S. Massachusetts), where he clung until daylight. Later he drew a sketch of the creature (shown below).
