God created the flood right? and it killed off the dinosaurs, then how come the underwater dinosaurs died too?

Is this a serious question? I don't mean to seem unkind by asking, but...

...the flood didn't kill off the dinosaurs (where did you hear that it did?)

Christians who believe Genesis like Jesus apparently believed Genesis have come to the conclusion that the dinosaurs must surely have died at the flood.
Since Jesus made reference to the man and woman being created at the beginning of the creation, this places Jesus holding a very literal belief system in connection with Genesis.
The heresy of Evolution, would never agree that the literal man and woman, Adam and Eve, were anywhere near the time of "the beginning".

So taking Genesis literally would naturally place many of the dinosaurs' creation on the very same literal day that both Adam and Eve were created. That is day 6 when all the original land dwelling animals and Adam and Eve were created.
Some dinosaurs were water dwelling so they were created on the previous literal day, day 5 of creation week.
A very intelligent question has been raised with regard to God who is omnipotent, which question may have even been raised by children:
Why did God take so long to make everything?

After becoming exposed to the bizarre belief system necessary to embrace under the heresy of evolution, adopting a childlike faith like what God's Holy Child possessed and exhibited suddenly becomes extremely intelligent.

Hi bondservant4him,
There is an answer to your question but, it is very controversial and suppressed and can be found by studying the book of Genesis in the original Hebrew text and also the book of 2nd Peter in the original Greek text. This will require a lot of resources, time and some archaic lingual abilities...
My advice is to just put the subject on the self for now and know that there were dinosaurs and that there is a God who created them and everything else that was created.
This would be and act of faith and evidence of your trust in God to protect and not mislead you, when God is ready or thinks you are ready He will answer all of your questions and address all of your concerns.
Some more advice is that if this subject is really that important to you, then pray and ask God to lead you to His knowledge that will keep you content and satisfied until He enables you and all of His children with full knowledge and wisdom about all things.

We don't know if all dinosaurs were killed before the flood. None of us were there to actually see what Noah loaded onto the ark.

If you believe in the young earth theory (earth age < 10,000 years) you can make the argument that some dinosaurs may have been among the animals brought with Noah and eventually died on their own some time after the flood. Of course Noah would have not loaded multi ton animals onto the ark, he would have brought younger baby ones. The vast majority of dinosaurs were small like the size of a sheep and smaller.

Something important to note is it has been shown that fossils can be formed in a matter of a hundred years or so, not the millions of years secular science wants us to believe. For example, fossilized remains of people have been found from the civil war time that look millions of years old.

As far as sea creatures go, there are many alive today that people would call dinosaurs if they only saw a skeleton and never actually seen one alive. I don't think it's really hard to say some fossilized bones of sea animals may simply be extinct animals and not really anything radically different from a living animal today.

Honestly, there is no good, specific answer for this (with those who believe in solely in evolution or with those who believe solely in creation). Evolutionists believe dinos lived pre-man, creationists generally believe dinos lived with man and baby dinos went with Noah on the ark. Big difference, but neither side has definitive answers and/or irrefutable proof. Here is an small example of what each side theorizes...

Evolutionists variously say: starvation, overeating, poisoning, extinction, predatory mammals ingested or destroyed their eggs, inhalation of volcanic dust, comet and/or meteorite collision with earth, mass suicide, parasites and other illnesses.
Creationists variously say: starvation, overeating, poisoning, extinction, predatory mammals ingested or destroyed their eggs, parasites and other illnesses, change in composition of earth's air and gasses changing plant-life on earth following the flood
So, as you see above, there are some differences and some similarities. Some creationists have even gone so far as to claim that when the Bible makes reference to various life such as tanniyn, leviathan, and behemoth the writers were really talking about dinosaur, brachiosaurus and kronosaurus, respectively. Personally, I think that's a stretch.

The one thing we do know is that dinosaurs *did* exist (you should realize that when the first dino fossils were discovered in the early 1800's, most Christians refused to believe that they were anything *but* animals we already knew existed), and now they don't. :dunno:

I tend to look at the whole debate this way: in the eternal scheme of things as far as salvation is concerned, does it really matter? ;)
