I trust in God, I have my faith in Christ but I have trouble believing everything in the Bible. For instance, a problem in Genesis was brought to my attention by a friend who is currently reading the Bible for the 3rd time.
God creates Earth, Man, Animals, etc. in one week. Yet the Book makes no mention of the dinosaurs. Perhaps they could be included under the classification of animals, but even if that is true there is still a problem. From what we can tell, dinosaurs existed 230 million years ago, while humans have only existed for 200,000 years. So how could both have been created in the same week?
Here are some possible explanations I have come up with. I don't necessarily believe these either, but they would fix things.
1. Satan created the fossils to cause controversy over the Bible's credibility.
2. The fossils are actually no more than bone like rocks.
3. A week span during the creation of Earth was much longer than what we now record as a week. For example, perhaps each day then would be equal to 32 million years by how we measure time and after that, days became the length they are today.
4. Scientists who study fossils are wrong in their calculations and the dinosaur fossils are indeed no older than human fossils.
So what do you guys think?
