Does the bible even say anything about Dino's or galaxies?

I've been going to church for a few months now and I'm having such a
Hard time grasping this whole god thing. Maybe Jesus. He was a self disciplined
Passionate caring spiritual, person who sometimes let his sinless existence make him cocky
But he was focused on his preachings? Wasn't he born in sin? I'm not real educated on B.C. Stuff but it makes sense that religion and god were taught to maintain order, give people a reason not to be crappy people and so it's not so depressing to tell our kids, that we just... Die and that's it. Recycled into the earth?

  • May be there is something about dino or galaxies in Bible.But by the time there occurs so much changes in Bible. If you want to know answer of your any question, either it is related to your life or you want to know about the truth of this universe, you will find it in Qur'an. I suggest you to read translation of Holy Qur'an.You must search its translation on google.

  • The word "dinosaur" didn't exist until the 1800's. so you won't find the word in there but, there are descriptions of large beasts that could describe what we know as dinosaurs in most Bible translations. I'm not sure if it describes galaxies but it does refer to the cosmos as an "expanse" and it does describe the Earth as being "hung on nothing."

  • Job walked with dinos. It doens't say the word but read the description and it matches them.

  • Nope, the authors weren't omniscient and were clueless about dinosaurs and galaxies. Heck, a heliocentric universe was beyond them, never mind the idea of galaxIES ;)

  • You don't need God or religion to have a reason NOT be crappy people. It's in how you raise them not what they believe. And if you find the idea of death as depressing without an "afterlife' it is because you are a pessimistic person and take for granted the little things in life that make it worth it, even if there isn't an "afterlife" when you die.


    As for the Bible mentioning Dinos and Galaxies, no it doesn't but people will twist it anyway they can to justify what they know is wrong with the Bible rather than admit it is fundamentally flawed.

  • When dinosaurs roamed the earth, there was no man to document it, so why would it be in the Bible? No matter what mainstream relgion you are, Muslim, Jewish, Christian, I am unaware of any of them that mention dinosaurs.

  • Job belongs in Genesis (time wise) and in the book there is mention of behemoths and leviathans which arent called dinosaurs. basically they are creatures that are so large & wild that only God can tame them...theyre used to show God's strength. in medieval times the ppl changed the creatures to sound more poetic & musical...why else would Unicorn be in the Bible (Job 39:9).

    most Christians believe Jesus' mother, Mary, was a virgin when she gave birth. so he was born without original sin...and some Catholics believe Mary herself was born without original sin.

    but yeah im with ya on the "religion to control the ppl" idea.

  • I don't think they knew much about galaxies back in biblical times.

  • Dinosaurs and galaxies wouldn't have been mentioned in the Bible because those aspects of the world hadn't been figured out yet. There are zillions of things not mentioned in the Bible--computers, TV's, semiautomatic weapons--because they hadn't been achieved, so to speak. The Bible mentions beasts and stars, which were understandable to the people. Applying our broader vocabulary to the Bible as we advance is not the same as twisting it to meet our needs.
