Age of the Earth Creation/evolution Paleontology Science

What about those 100-million-year-old dinosaur fossils?

Evolutionary ‘science’ alleges the earth is about 4.6 billion years old and life started 3.8 billion years ago on the planet. It also alleges that life evolved from a single-celled ‘last common ancestor’ to all the diversity of life we see today. According to their story, the dinosaurs lived some 230 million years ago and died out about 63 million years ago. The claim is that the fossil evidence supports this evolutionary story, whereas the Bible tells a completely different story. Most of the fossils are then the result of sudden burial in all the sedimentary layers laid down by global flood waters about 4,500 years ago. Dr Jim Mason presents some compelling arguments to answer the title question. He looks at the so-called geological column, where the flood fits into that, evidence on the age of fossils, uniformitarian principles, sediments and varves, soft tissue, blood cells, and DNA in dinosaur bones, homology and transitional forms.
