[...] I am skeptical of mainstream theories about dinosaurs. In large part I believe the dinosaur craze is a cultural thing started by Europeans. In black households, dinosaur figurines, movies, etc., are not as common, and my children certainly did not grow up with dinosaurs in the household.
Dinosaur "science" is largely a European trend. Outside of Europe, dinosaurs were unheard of until Europeans spread the theory to others. Africa is the birthplace of the world's oldest civilizations, yet we have no records of Africans ever encountering or speculating about dinosaurs. Why is this?
I do believe there were other large creatures in history though - just not the giant lizards we have been taught to believe in. The large lizards are from European mythology and are based on dragons. The Bible has a different explanation:
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
- Genesis 6:4
These horrific abominations were produced when angels mated with humans and they are the reason God sent the flood to destroy them and their offspring. I believe the large bones turning up all around the world are evidence of this event.
