Matthew McLain, Dr. Marcus Ross, Matt Petrone, Noël Lay, and Matthew Speights take issue with Dr. Gabriela Haynes’ 2022 discussion of the difference between birds and dinosaurs.
Evolutionists assert that several dinosaur species had feathers, but what do the genes say?
Based on several findings, no reason remains for Archaeopteryx to be classified as anything other than a bird.
The biblical account of Noah’s Flood provides an update to modern microbial biogeography and modern creation apologetics.
Artwork at Cambodia’s Angkor Wat temple appears to depict a dinosaur. Though the engraving is “stegosaur-like,” this interpretation has been criticized.
The evidence for a large impact at Chicxulub may not be as strong as generally believed. A case can also be made that there was no impact.
A bas-relief carving from the 12th–13th century Ta Prohm temple in Angkor, Cambodia is hailed as a possible depiction of a recently living stegosaur.

If we do not understand the dimensions of the war we are engaged in, we are already halfway to theological and historical oblivion.
Most literature states the average dinosaur was only the size of a sheep. This paper hopefully assists creationists base statements on the best available data.

Dinosaurs on Answers Research Journal
The existence of dinosaurs and their extinction are the subject of many debates. Dinosaurs are used as one of the key points against the authority of God’s Word regarding His creation, especially in relation to the account of Noah’s Ark and the Flood. Opponents claim that dinosaurs are a result of evolution, sharing an ancestor with birds. Skeptics of God’s Word also assert that dinosaurs did not live with humans and that they could not have fit in the Ark.
It’s important to remember that dinosaur is not a word in the Bible since it was not created until the nineteenth century. But the descriptions of creatures mentioned in many books, chapters, and verses of the Bible perfectly describe animals that are today known as dinosaurs. These eyewitness accounts are evidence that the biblical authors lived with dinosaurs and were writing about them as they did any other animal. Also, God created all land animals on Day Six of the Creation Week in the same day He created Adam and Eve, so dinosaurs did indeed live with humans. Lastly, dinosaurs did not evolve into birds or share an ancestor with birds. Birds were created on Day Five of the Creation Week—before dinosaurs. Birds and dinosaurs are two different created kinds.
The aim of these research papers in Answers Research Journal (ARJ) is to scientifically analyze dinosaurs from a biblical perspective of a recent creation. These peer-reviewed articles address issues related to dinosaurs and what happened to them in the pre- and post-Flood world.
