On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (09/03/20), Hank follows up on a question he was asked on yesterday’s broadcast on whether dinosaurs and human beings lived during the same time period. The short answer is no, as Hank said yesterday. But unfortunately, if you were to look up that question online, you would find out that the internet is awash with supposed evidence that points in the exact opposite direction. Young Earth creationists point to human footprints discovered alongside dinosaur tracks in the Paluxy Riverbed of Glen Rose, Texas. And so it is argued that these footprints in stone prove not only that dinosaurs lived contemporaneously with human beings, but that the world is a mere six thousand years old. In truth, while footprints of carnivorous dinosaurs are in evidence, there’s no compelling evidence whatsoever for human footprints in the same time and space. In fact, many prints claimed to be human are merely erosion patterns—an illustration of wish giving birth to reality. For further information please see The Creation Answer Book.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- Is Ecclesiastes 3:18-21 referring to the spirit of animals going up or is it just humans? Is there anything in the Bible that says what happens to the soul of an animal?
- Are you on board with the verse in Genesis chapter 6 where it says that the angels looked upon man and saw their beauty and procreated with them?
