And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind.” (Genesis 1:24)
The Bible tells us that God made the land animals on day six according to kinds. Dinosaurs are land animals and so they were created on day six — along with man.
Reconstructive sketches of the likely 15 kinds of originally created kinds of dinosaurs whose fossils have been found in the Flood sediments of North America are depicted below. For the details of the hypothesis that developed these 15 kinds, many pages of detailed information on each kind, and the evidence that supports the hypothesis see my new book, Guidebook to North American Dinosaurs According to Created Kinds. Also available is a companion coloring and activity book with the same title that is appropriate for children ages pre-kindergarten to grade six.
