lol, you've touched on an interesting topic with a picture that only raises further questions.

10/10 points ;)

I am wondering what everyone thinks about the dinosaur debate as it pertains to religious arguments.

My experience has been that some believe that Dinosaurs are in conflict with the timeline the bible lays out.

I have once heard a southern baptist minister in the US claim that dinosaurs are a test of the christian faith. I have heard all sorts of commentary that fossils were falsely placed there by god as a test. Im not one to seek solace knowing that god is a prankster, however i'd love to hear how others interpret this in their faith. (this is not a faith bashing session, religion interests me and i feel that if people really looked into their religion more, would find solutions to multireligious/multicultural world peace of sorts).

The idea is that the story was handed to humans by angels. But the discriptors of time are very similar to the hindu cycles of time. something like 10 billion years being equivalent to 1 day or one night in the life of brahma... something like that... (i mean in relation to the creation story)

Our Native Elders have Metaphors to live by … I believe somewhere in History … Horus (re spelling) was born to the virgin Marie … he also walked on water and healed people … 3000 years before Jesus …

It seems that somewhere along the line … someone made it like “real” no longer a Metaphor to live by

I think Jesus on dinosaurs would be the ultimate attack unit in any computer game.

Or a final boss.

The dinosaur debate is to (some of) the religious as the Elvis/alien connection is to the tinfoil-hats, massively important yet utterly devoid of evidence.

When I was a Christian I went through a phase where my religious dogma needed to trump reality and that eventually lead me to atheism. The dinosaur "debate" is an interesting semi-intellectual exercise, much like the Atlantis debate.

Jesus and Dinosaurs existing are not exclusive from the other. Duh. Both as historical facts being well established one has to wonder how dogmatic Christians veered off the cliff when it came to: DINO's are older. That's it. No freaking debate needed here.

I also had bizzare thoughts as to how GrammaFreddy came up the the original post, I even imagined that somehow HMNI achieved a higher level of consciousness, so much so that he managed the most successful New Age Astral Projection ever and took over GF's keyboard and account. I had to look at the OP thru blurry eyes so many times, it hurt.
If Putin stopped, he'd be saving Russian lives as well. Never thought the right would have a field day but June 24/2022 it is.

Oop, apparently we have a debate.
