Dinosaurs and the Bible

…Could it be that Lucifer had reign over this earth before he rebelled against God and became Satan? Could it be that the inhabitants of this planet (dinosaurs and cavemen and whatever else may have been here) were led into rebellion against God by the fallen angel Lucifer, who became Satan? Could it be that the earth was destroyed prior to Noah’s Flood? Science says it was. Since the earth was covered with water in Verse 2 of Genesis, could it be that the earth was destroyed by flood twice?

What was the command God gave Noah’s family? Genesis 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons,and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply and REPLENISH the earth. KJV What does the term “replenish” mean? It means to “refill”. What had happened that Noah was told to “refill” the earth. The flood of course.

Where else in the bible can we find the commandment to be fruitful, multiply, and replensih the earth? In Genesis 1:28 we read And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, multiply, and REPLENISH the earth and subdue it. Who was God talking to? Adam and Eve. Why were Adam and Eve commanded to “replenish” or “refill” the earth unless the earth had once been full and something had happened to wipe out the life that was on the earth. …

It was a moment of crisis in my faith. As a young doctoral student in astrophysics, I had just read some work by Stephen Hawking that would eventually go into his classic A Brief History of Time. Up to this point in my Christian life, I had relied on a solid argument to use with my atheist friends. In response to, “The universe began with a Big Bang,” I countered with, “But who started it all off—who lit the explosion?” And at the time, science seemed to support my answer: There was no way to combine quantum theory and relativity and therefore no way of describing the first moment of the universe.

Hawking, however, was speculating on how the universe might have lit its own Big Bang. If that was true, did I need a Creator anymore? I asked Sir Robert Boyd, a leading physicist and Christian, about whether Hawking might be wrong. Sir Robert simply replied, “The biblical Creator doesn’t need to hide in little gaps in science.”

The Christian doctrine of Creation has often been hijacked by controversies over how old the universe is. It has been hollowed out by the theory that God simply ignites the universe and then goes off for a cup of coffee, never touching his masterwork again. It is interesting that attacks on belief in a Creator, whether from Hawking, Richard Dawkins’s The God Delusion, or Lawrence M. Krauss’s recent A Universe from Nothing, tend to target this diminished deity. But the Bible has a much bigger understanding of God as Creator. Not only does the doctrine of Creation feature in Scripture beyond just Genesis 1, God’s creative activity permeates every moment of the history of the universe.

My Hawking-induced crisis of faith spurred me to move beyond a “God of the gaps”—a shrunken deity enlisted merely to fill any remaining pockets of mystery that science has yet to illuminate. Indeed, my experience has been that recapturing the doctrine of Creation in its scriptural fullness points us toward a much more exciting understanding of creation. It points us toward a God for whom science is a gift rather than a stumbling block. And perhaps most importantly, it points to a Creator God who is worthy of worship, enjoyment, and trust.
