I was recently asked by a skeptical high school student this question and I’m not sure how to answer it:
“Which came first: Adam and Eve, or the dinosaurs?”
My thought was that the dinosaurs came first because God created the animals first. Since we don’t believe in a strict interpretation of the creation story in Genesis, could the dinosaurs simply be part of God-controlled evolution and earth setting up? What could I say to explain why the dinosaurs even existed?
I don’t want to give a faulty answer so I was hoping I could get some input.
