Dinosaur extinction

Where did most of the dinosaur fossils come from?

The Great Flood. Copyrighted by Films for Christ.

The Bible tells of a great flood that covered the entire Earth—Noah’s Flood. This was the greatest disaster in history. Nothing else has even come close. The Flood waters rose above all the world’s mountains and killed most of the air-breathing, land animals and all but eight people in Noah’s family (Genesis 6:12-13, 7:21-23). It destroyed the entire surface of the Earth (Genesis 9:11).

Great supplies of water stored underground came bursting out (Genesis 7:11, 8:2). The Earth’s crust heaved and buckled unleashing terrible volcanic eruptions and massive earthquakes like the world has never seen before or since.

Rain poured out from a dark, thundering sky in unending torrents. Waves of loosened earth and trees slid down hillsides burying plants by the thousands. All of the cities were totally destroyed. And so was God’s garden in Eden. For forty days the rains continued. And the waves continued to rise, fed by vast amounts of underground water which used to feed the rivers and springs of the world, including the Garden in the land of Eden (Genesis 2:6; 10-14).

Under the pressure of this worldwide disaster, the earth shook again and again causing huge tsunami waves to sweep across the sinking land. So great was the destruction that every human being died and with them, millions of animals and plants.
