Sharp Teeth

Recently we attended a meeting where the question about the sharp teeth in dinosaurs and other 'prehistoric' animals was discussed.

The usual thought about the presence of such 'sharp teeth' is that they were needed in order to eat meat.

But, is that the reason?

Another view is that the sharp teeth are needed to eat plants, nuts, and other 'hard' things.

Why is this important?

Well, If you are an 'old earther' you likely believe that dinosaurs and other animals of 'long long ago' were meat eaters.

If you are a 'young earther' you likely (gasp) believe the Bible is true when it says that before the flood animals (and man) did not eat meat but were vegetarians.

So, what about this?

Interestingly, a 1 min 29 second video from ICR addresses this question.  I think you will find it very interesting and informative.  HERE'S THE LINK
