In a way this is a question more so than an answer....How long is a day to God? To us, it's 24 hours...in the beginning, we don't know how long God considered a day. Remember, people wrote the Bible, and God may have had to put the story of creation into something they could comprehend. The written language didn't come around for quite sometime, so the story had to be passed on verbally until it was written. I'm a Christian myself and I believe in God and that Jesus is my Lord and Savior, and I set great store by the lessons one can learn from the Bible, but I also attribute that there could be human error in it.

Fossile evidence does not need to be ignored to have a firm belief in creation.



Dinosaurs did exist, that is a well proven fact, it does not automatically prove evolution though.



The bible does not teach that the earth was created in 7 literal days
(meaning 7 24 hour periods). In fact it teaches that a day, in
god's sight can seem as a thousand years in man's sight.



Belief in creation, does however, preclude a belief in evolution.
So you have to weigh the facts, for yourself, and come to a conclusion.

Even the most studious of scientists admit that there are flaws and gaps in the evolutionary chain from the fish that jumped out of the water and grew legs and eventually became man.

Even though some theologists would ignore evidence of the dinosaurs the bible clearly indicates that they existed. And if someone made a first hand account of these beings, that also proves that mankind was around at the same time that dinosaurs existed.
