Why isn't the word Dinosaur in the Bible?

Many have asked this question.

Perhaps you have also wondered about this.

And, yes, it is true -- the word "Dinosaur" is NOT in the Bible.

Alas, since dinosaurs are not mentioned in the Bible, many people think this is ‘proof’ of an ‘old earth’ of millions and millions of years.

But is that an accurate conclusion?

Actually, there is a simple reason why the term ‘dinosaur’ is not in the Bible.

So what is this simple reason? you ask.

Ok, here it is ---

Dinosaurs are not mentioned in the Bible because the name ‘Dinosaur’ was not coined until 1841.

Richard Owen was the one who originated this name.

Prior to that time they were probably called “dragons.”
