We know without doubt that there were millions of years of creation prior to our current era. We know that there were plants and animals in existence then there aren't today. We also know that there were different types of plants and animals in each prehistoric era.
According to Biblical Creation when god made the earth, animals and plants he saw that they were "good." Why then did he have a need to create different species for each separate era and kill off all those prior? Was it like a try and try again type of deal?
I've always wondered how Creationists beliefs explained the different eras of existence prior to this one... I know many believe the Dinosaurs died off in "the flood." But that answer doesn't answer the complete extinction of multiple eras full of existence prior to the Cretaceous Period (which was the last prior to current era).

Figures... there is scientific proof of something and it's excused away by 'satanic tricks'. lol.

A well educated Young Earth Creationist would tell you this: the atmosphere prior to the flood was higher in humidity and the entire climate was more tropical, thus it was an ideal climate for the dinosaurs, which being reptiles needed a warm, fairly humid environment. The sudden and extreme climate shift after the flood which wiped out most of the Earth's early population was most likely too much for the dinosaurs to deal with and adapt to, and so they slowly died off. As to the "geologic time scale", well, I will refer you to a site that has more room than I do to explain the objections Young Earth Creationists have to the "geologic time scale":http://www.allaboutcreation.org/geologic-time-scale.htm. This site is pretty much an Intelligent Design/Young Earth site, so it has all their info and arguments on it about everything.

I don't know why things become extinct, my faith allows for scientific reasoning.
