    I am looking for academic books that deals with the claims that man lived with dinosaurs?

    I heard on the radio that there is a lot of documentation for both living at the same time in the last 6,000 years.

    I want the non Bible sources only.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    There certainly are people who believe that but I am totally unaware of any credible academic sources That would support that position.

    Don't worry; there's nothing biblical, either.

    I know some use proof texts from the bible for animals that are not clearly identified. They also quote a mythical, figure of speech creature that has seven heads.

    I am really only interested in academic sources on this topic.

    The speaker on the radio said something about dragons.

    Thanks all,

    Today, academia is sold out to the concept of evolution. But there are things out there available to you. The old science book Historia Animalium claims that dragons (now known as dinosaurs) still existed in the 15th century, but were rare and much smaller in size than before. The concept is supposedly so new, according to 'science' that the word dinosaur itself didn’t even come around until the 1840's. Before that point, these large lizards were commonly called dragons.

    Marco Polo described the chariot of the Chinese emperor being driven by these dragons. Alexander the Great referenced two dragons he saw in India, that were being kept by an Indian king in a cave and worshiped by the people, which were each well over 100 feet long. The ancient Greek historian Herodotus wrote descriptions of the large 'dragons' around in his day and even gave accounts of the methods the Egyptians used to smoke out the large winged serpents (probably Pterodactyls) from caves so they could kill them.

    There is information about where they've found viable soft tissue and elastic blood vessels within T. Rex samples (). There's also soft tissue discoveries from a Mosasaur and a Hadrosaur. These would indicate a death much more recent than 50+ million years, which people unbelievably still claim.

    You can also find depictions on ancient pottery of dinosaurs. A time when 'science' will tell you these people should have no idea what they even look like, let alone know they exist. But they have interactions with people on some of these, including eating people, or in at least one case, being ridden by people. Like these...

    There's a stegosaur carved into the Ta-Prohm temple in Cambodia, which was built centuries ago. Mind you, they should have had no idea about such a creature. There are literally thousands of sculptures and writings from the ancient world referencing these 'dragons', something that should be absent from the timeline of the ancient world if they died out millions of years before man.

    If someone ever tells you there no evidence whatsoever of such things, they don't know what they are talking about.

    Whoooooooo cares? Of what importance is it to Christians today? He embraces our lives, our love. What more should we seek?

    Concerning the flesh found, what would preserve it for thousands of years could also do so for longer periods too.

    I am really only interested in academic books which I can check footnotes and other scholars can respond to in writing. I have loud ringing in both ears which makes most movies impossible for me to follow. I have found that "popular" or self publish authors tend to quote sources that can not be verified. One author, Dave Hunt to be specific even quotes himself as an expert, pretending he is quoting someone else. See his book, Beyond Seduction and check the footnotes for yourself. I do not have access to my notes at this point in time.

    And they didn't because it's not a stegosaur. It's actually a Sumatran Rhino.
    - Stegosaurs had thin snouts. The carving shows a fat snout like that of the Sumatran rhino.
    - Stegosaurs didn't have external ears or horns resembling ears on their heads. The carving shows ears like those of the Sumatran Rhino.
    - Stegosaurs had spikes on the end of their talk. The carving shows no tail spikes, just the normal tail of a Sumatran rhino.

    The veracity of God's Word... unless, of course, you don't care about that.

    I gave you one old academic source and some accounts of historical writings that you could flesh out, and that's probably as close as you'll be able to come in this day and age while evolution suppositions currently control the secular world.

    I disagree. The carving shows spikes down the back of the animal - that is a Stegosarus. It may be a species we do not (yet) have in our museums, but you cannot deny that new surprise species of dinosaur fossils are found all the time. Many of the animals shown are slightly simplified, but they are still recognizable. Rino's do NOT have plates along their back... period!

    No it does not. Stegosaurs didn't have spikes on their backs, they had plates. The "plates" in the carving are leaves in a jungle which is where one would observe a Sumatran rhino - and I already showed that the nose, ears and tail don't match that of a stegosaur.

    No, it's a known species - the Sumatran rhino. sumatran-rhino_727_600x450.jpg

    And stegosaurs have spikes on their tail (which the Ta Prohm carving lacks) have thin snouts (the Ta Prohm carving has a fat snout) and they lack external ears (which the Ta Prohm carving has). It's almost as if you didn't even read my post because you're not addressing any of these problems for those claiming it's a stegosaur.

    I believe the sentence included implied paranthetic words, thus: "I cannot think of a (honest and accurate) polite reply".

    I hope you would agree that it would be inappropriate to thank someone for adding to the nonsense that already floods the internet.

    I would agree that I would not thank someone who adds the nonsense of evolution that already floods the internet, but that's not what I did.

    Yes, it is exactly what you did, sadly.
