  • Well in the book of Job, I think it is like chapter 49 or 50, it talks about the leviathan and the behemoth... the leviatian is a fire breathing creature that sounds an awful lot like a dragon, and the behemoth sounds an awful lot like a dinosaur... so I would say yes... I think there are dinosaurs mentioned in the Bible...

  • there is in the book of genesis the part which says God created all manner of running flyign and creeping things and saw that it was good. This was a "day" of the "week" before he created man and woman.... so if we interpret day into thousands of aeons, why not? All i knwo is im Catholic and i believe in and love science and the skeletons at my native NYC museum of Natural History -- what are they paper mache? lolololol omg they find new skeletons every day all over the world... and people dont believ in them . also there is the loch ness monster AND legends of fire breathing HUGE dragons that lived STILL in the middle ages in remote caves... i think those were vestigal dinosaurs... and look at alligators and komodo dragos yikes

  • No, there aren't dinosaurs in the Bible. There aren't skunks in the Bible either, it doesn't mean the Bible denies their existence.

  • Dinosaurs supposedly came before man, so I would say "No".

  • Dinosaurs existed a few million years before the Bible...or the story of Adam and Eve.

  • Some people argue that the behemoth and the leviathan are dinosaurs while some people have suggested they are referring to a hippo and a croc. Who the hell knows- I mean obviously dinosaurs were real, and just because they would be mentioned in the Bible- which does have SOME scientific facts in it, really means nothing. Ancient people often used real animals, people and places in their mythology and there would have been dinosaur fossils back then to fuel the imagination.

  • Yes. the Behemoth and the Leviathan.
