Dinosaurs


#1

My 11 year old son ask me a question the other day I could not seem to give a complete answer to. He asked me if dinosaurs lived before Adam and Eve and if so how long? My other son is also very into dinosaurs and we read lots of books about them. They give different reasons for why dinosaurs are no longer on the earth and I wonder what the correct response is to that. Could someone these dinosaur dilemas for me?

I cannot vouch for all of the information at the following link, and you may wish to preview it before turning over the mouse to your sons, but this may help get them started:
