Dinosaurs and the Flood

According to the theory of evolution dinosaurs lived from 220 to 65 million years ago. This time frame is referred to by evolutionists as the Mesozoic Age. It is divided into three parts: the Triassic, the Jurassic, and the Cretaceous. The Triassic sediments contain such dinosaurs as Plateosaurus, Compsognathus andCoelophysis. The Jurassic sediments contain such dinosaurs as Megalosaurus,Camarasaurus and Diplodocus. The Cretaceous sediments contains such dinosaurs as Tyrannosaurus, Iguanodon and Velociraptor.

As Dr. Baker read the literature in preparation for his first book Dinosaurs. Three facts became evident from the study of the literature:

  1. They were buried primarily by means of flood action.
  2. Their burial was catastrophic in nature.
  3. This watery catastrophe that buried the dinosaurs was global in extent.

As he worked on this first book, he began to collect these various evidences which taken together begin to add more and more support to the idea that dinosaurs of the fossil record died by means of a global flood. These were referenced in his first book, in the chapter entitled Evidence of a Global Flood from a Study of the Dinosaurs. (He is now in the process of writing a third edition for this original book)

In this seminar, Dr. Baker reviews some of those various evidences which graphically portray the fact that dinosaurs could not have been buried slowly and gradually and that the dinosaurs did not live in three separate ages of millions of years each. The evidence strongly indicates that all the dinosaur fossils as well as most of the other fossils that are now found in the sedimentary rocks represent the animals that were killed during Noah's Flood-- a single global catastrophe.
