  • "In the Bible, in Job 40:15–24, God describes to Job (who lived after the Flood) a great beast with which Job was familiar. This great animal, called “behemoth,” is described as “the chief of the ways of God,” perhaps the biggest land animal God had created. Impressively, he moved his tail like a cedar tree! Although some Bible commentaries say this may have been an elephant or hippopotamus, the description actually fits that of a dinosaur like Brachiosaurus. Elephants and hippos certainly do not have tails like cedar trees!

    Actually, very few animals are singled out in the Bible for such a detailed description. Contrary to what many may think, what we know now as dinosaurs get more mention in the Scriptures than most animals! So dinosaurs—all the different kinds—must have lived alongside of people after the Flood. "

  • Moki, I think that is because the Leviathan is a seriously scary beast. Satan has a lot of names. But I do believe that there were creatures named Leviathan, and that the word was not just reserved for Satan.

    I wonder if La Vey gave him that name or if it is something that he picked up from earlier writings? Hmm. I can see that being a good name for him. I think I prefer "the Lord of the Flies" myself, LOL.

  • Their fossils litter the earth and a frozen, intact baby mammoth was recently discovered and examined by scientists. And I don't really care what the bible says about dinosaurs--none of it is true anyway.
