Dinosaurs on the Ark?

The Bible testifies that pairs of all creatures with the “breath of life” came to Noah and entered the Ark (Genesis 7:15). That means dinosaurs were on the Ark!

Some will argue, “But aren’t there thousands of variations of dinosaurs?” There are many variations but not that many kinds. Just like there are many variations of the dog kind but just the one kind, the same is true for dinosaur kinds. There are many variations of the Ceratopsian kind (triceratops, protoceratops, torosaurus, etc.), but just the one Ceratopsid/Ceratopsian kind. There are many variations of the sauropod kind (Brachiosaurus, Apatosaurus, etc.), but just the one sauropod kind. Being really generous, there are about 36 to 85 dinosaur kinds. And Noah took two of each kind, so that’s only around 72 to 170 total dinosaurs!

But then some will argue, “Maybe there weren’t that many, but dinosaurs were too big!” What most people don’t realize is that the average size of a dinosaur was that of a bison. Some were as small as chickens. If they were still around, we could have some KFD (Kentucky Fried Dinosaurs)! Actually, all
dinosaurs started off small because they hatched from eggs. And the biggest an egg can get is about the size of a football. That means all dinosaurs, whether you’re talking about the T. rex, Stegosaurus, Apatosaurus, etc., all started off no bigger than the
size of a football.
With that in mind, it just makes sense that God would have brought juveniles of dinosaurs and other big animals onto the Ark. He would likely bring juveniles because they are smaller, eat less, weigh less, sleep more, and are a lot more resilient. Most importantly, juveniles will live longer once they get off the Ark, giving them more time to produce more offspring, which is the whole reason they were brought on board to begin with.

Really, there is no problem getting dinosaurs on the Ark.
