Why don't religious people believe in Dinosaurs? And why can't evolution be a part of God's plan?

I've actually heard relegious people claim Dinosaurs are a huge conspiracy, and that scientists only claim to have find fossils in an effort to turn people away from God. Also, evolution is about adaptation and survival.... why can't that be part of Gods plan to help the human race survive?

    A person who says that is ignorant. I find no contradition between religion and science. I am a Christian and I believe in evolution and the bing bang theory.

    I don't know who the people you are talking about are but no main stream Christian teacher claims that dinosaurs didn't exist. As to why evolution can't be a part of God's plan, micro-evolution is definitely a part of His creative genius. God created animals to be able to adapt over generations to thrive and survive in this fallen world.

    But claiming that an amoeba turned into a fish that turned into a frog that turned into an ape like creature that turned into human beings is ridiculous as well as running counter to the teachings found in the Bible.

    Check out some of the articles about the fossil record and about evolution from the Answers button @ http://web.express56.com/~bromar/ and you'll see the proof of that.

    I believe in Dinosaurs and in God. I don't totally believe the adaptation/evolution.

    After all - it's widely accepted that alligators and crocodiles have been largely unchanged for thousands of years - why would they not adapt while others did? They are not the only ones. It doesn't make sense. In believing His word it states we were created in His image - not evolving from sea creatures.

    In a more specific way - it's widely said that Thoroughbred horses were bred solely from Arabians. Arabians are distinctive in a shorter back and fewer ribs, lumbar vertebrae and tail bones than other breeds. To listen to some reports crossing lines of Arabians made a super horse - the Thoroughbred. Yet no other line of Arabians has ever changed physically - in thousands of years they have stayed largely the same. With that the case - and humans selecting and breeding them - how can I believe that if a horse doesn't change in all that time that there could be the vast differences from sea to amphibious to mammals. That part I am not convinced about.

    Dinosaurs are pre-flood creatures. The Bible mentions dinosaur like animals like Leviathan and others. I do not see the contradiction. Fossils are proof of the Great Flood, but evolutionist like to call the findings part of the "Ice Age". You can find seashell on mountain tops, this proves the Great Flood theory.

    Evolution is a theory. Academia, however, attacks and belittles any student who even questions the theory. A lot of people don't believe in evolution.

    The problem with dinosaurs is that a lot of Christians believe the earth is only about 6000 years old. Evolution is just human knowledge explaining the process of the natural that no longer fall under the exclusive purview of God. As human knowledge expands, the power of God fades.

    Dinosaurs in the Noble Quran:

    A questioner on my Message Board at: http://www.answering-christianity.com/cgi-bin/mess... asked the question about why Allah Almighty never mentioned dinosaurs in the Noble Quran?

    Allah Almighty did mention dinosaurs in the Noble Quran. While the word "dinosaurs" is a modern word that refers to the gigantic animals that existed perhaps millions of years ago, Allah Almighty referred to all created "beasts" as "dabbah". A "dabbah" in the Noble Quran consists of all animals, including the dinosaurs.

    "Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth; in the alternation of the night and the day; in the sailing of the ships through the ocean for the profit of mankind; in the rain which God Sends down from the skies, and the life which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead; in the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth; in the change of the winds, and the clouds which they Trail like their slaves between the sky and the earth;- (Here) indeed are Signs for a people that are wise. (The Noble Quran, 2:164)"

    "He created the heavens without any pillars that ye can see; He set on the earth mountains standing firm, lest it should shake with you; and He scattered through it beasts of all kinds. We send down rain from the sky, and produce on the earth every kind of noble creature, in pairs. (The Noble Quran, 31:10)"

    Notice in Noble Verse 31:10, Allah Almighty said that He created the mountains to prevent the earth from shaking (which had been scientifically proven to be true. Please visit: www.answering-christianity.com/mountains.htm), and then after that He, the Almighty, created beasts and scattered them throughout the land. These first beasts that were created before mankind are what we call today "dinosaurs".

    THe Bible does not disprove dinosaurs. The Bible disproves evolution. "In the beginning, God..." Can we explain that, if we were created in God's image, that this would come from an ameoba? Bible says that God created man out of the earth. These facts contradict each other.

    Evolutionists believe we were created by chance. the Bible says that God created the heavens and the earth, created the birds and al l living things, including man. It also says that God BREATHED life into the man. None of these facts can relate to the theory of evolution.

    You must either be not religious, raised in a creationist religion and have never learned about other religions or ignorant. I would urge you to inform your self more about what other religions believe. At least people don't know you here - but you might get laughed at in public for making such a blanket generalization.

    Plenty of religions accept the theory of evolution. For example, I am Catholic. We do. We go by the spirit of the bible - not the letter.

    My dad always told me that God used rocks from other planets to make the earth and that some of those rocks already had dinosaur bones in them. What a load of crap. Needless to say I don't believe anything my parents say now. Religion IS the opiate of the masses.
