Does my answer shock you?
No, I’m not one of those Christians that claim that all of the fossil record was put there by Satan to confuse us.
I believe in the fossil record as being a record of plants and animals that lived in the past and died. But none of them are ‘prehistoric.’
Think about it. What does the word ‘prehistoric’ mean? It refers to anything that existed prior to history or more accurately, recorded history. Prehistoric is an evolutionary term used to help convince people that there were billions of years of unrecorded history prior to mankind coming on the scene.
By referring to dinosaurs, pterosaurs and cavemen as being prehistoric, they are brainwashing you to believe that they all existed before modern man evolved the ability to write and record history.
But let’s look at it from a biblical perspective. The first Hebrew word in the Bible is ‘barashith’ which means ‘beginning’ or ‘[in the] beginning.’ That’s very important to understand. Before time, space and matter, there was only God. He is eternal and before everything we can comprehend. ‘In the beginning’ signifies that everything started with God. At that moment, He created time, space and matter. I know it’s difficult to understand, but God is outside of time, space and matter. He is not bound by it like we are.
The second Hebrew word in the Bible is ‘bara’ which means ‘create’ or ‘created.’ The third Hebrew word is ‘Elohim’ which is one of the Hebrew names for God. Although it looks like we would read the three Hebrew words in that order, we don’t. Just like many languages when you translate them, the word order shifts. When we read the opening of Genesis 1:1, we read it, ‘In the beginning, God created…’
The important thing to remember is that the Bible is the Word of God, given to man so that we can know Him better and have a record of our history. Remember what 2 Timothy 3:14-17 says:
“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.”
God’s written record starts from the very moment God created time, space and matter.
Therefore, there is no such thing as ‘prehistoric animals’, is there?
The truth about ancient history has been suppressed for more than 150 years. In the nineteenth century, higher critics added thousands of years to the history books to discredit the Bible and its authority. This book, back in print after 200 years, will be the frontal assault that could overturn the whole of secular humanism. It connects biblical and secular history in way that proves the Bible’s chronology is correct. That’s why we’ve reprinted it and it made it available for the modern world to rediscover. The craftsmanship of this reprint is second to none.
“Years ago I purchased this rare book from a widow in a small West Virginia town. Her late husband was a collector of old history books. Once I opened the book I couldn’t put it down. Intricate maps of the ancient world unfolded before my eyes. Fascinating illustrations with the translation of ancient languages and charts with the ages of the Antediluvian Patriarchs were interspersed throughout the text. I’ve never seen Biblical and Secular history woven together in this way. I’ve always known that the Bible’s history was true–but my faith in God’s Word was strengthened like never before.” Ray Vallorani, Co-Founder of Tolle Lege Press
