    Did God just put bones of dinosaurs in the earth to confuse us humans?

    Did scientists make a mistake about the age of bones?

    Where did all the races of man come from?

    Where are dinosaurs mentioned in the bible?

    Is God the author of confusion?

    Was Cain the son of the devil?

    Did Jesus say that the Pharisees were children of the devil.

    Are there children of the devil here today?

    Can you answer correctly enough to get a passing score? That would mean you answered 100% correctly.

    This test is one that 90% will fail. Does that make any difference? Probably not since these are not salvation issues. I just want people to hunger for more knowledge and not think these are just silly questions.

    They walked the earth in the previous creation. God didn't create this world without form and void, it became that way because of sin.

    Job was from that previous creation. How do I know, read Job again.

    The dinosaur bones are remnants of the world wide flood in Noah's day. If you want to know more about them here is a helpful link to Answers in Genesis: Dinosaur Bones

    The legends of dragons that exist show that dinosaurs still lived recently. Answers in Genesis also gives some helpful information on this subject. Search | Answers in Genesis

    There might have been a previous creation that was destroyed because of sin but if so there are no traces of it left today. And why do you think Job was part of that creation?

    I don't think it could have been world wide because Cain lived through it. So did all the different races of people that God created.

    The flood was regional.

    Hmm . . . what is the commonality here . . . Devil's spawn?

    In 6 days God created the heavens and the earth and everything in them, so on the seventh day, you are to rest, God told Israel.

    So then the same sorts of days in which all was created - everything in the heavens and the earth - is the same sort of day that they rested in, that 24 hour period called the Sabbath.

    An nowhere does the Bible say that God did not first create a formless and empty world. It says God didn't create it to be formless and empty.

    And what do we see in the creation account? That this formless and empty world was given form, and was filled. So indeed, God didn't leave it that way.

    Much love!

    Did God just put bones of dinosaurs in the earth to confuse us humans?
    Of course not. But then, they need not be confusing if you recognize the global flood that killed them, buried them, to fossilize.

    Did scientists make a mistake about the age of bones?
    Of course! They assume everything has always been the way they see it now, and that's an incredibly risky assumption!

    Where did all the races of man come from?
    There is only one race . . . man. And he came from God's creative act. Do you mean, why do some people have different skin pigments?

    Where are dinosaurs mentioned in the bible?
    Word search . . . dragon . . . leviathan . . . behemoth . . .

    Is God the author of confusion?
    Of course not, but some remain confused just the same.

    Was Cain the son of the devil?
    Did Jesus say that the Pharisees were children of the devil.
    Are there children of the devil here today?

    I'll take these three together . . .

    If you will understand God is saying about this . . . Adam knew his wife, and she bore a son. So . . . was Cain Satan's son? OR Adam's son? And how did he act? What was his mind? What about the Pharisee's minds? Their actions? What about people today? Are you asking whether these are Satan's physical progeny? And the 100% answer is yes?

    Satan is not having sex with billions of women to produce billions of demon-spawn.

    Much love!

    I must admit, you have an answer for everything. So it must be true. No need to quote scripture since you say so.

    You ask
    Was Cain the son of the devil?
    Did Jesus say that the Pharisees were children of the devil.
    Are there children of the devil here today?

    The answer is 'yes' to all three. Jesus said to the Pharisees "Ye are of your father the devil"
    Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

    These Pharisees were not Jew's, they were children of Esau, who married the women of Cain after his father had told him not to.

    No need for you to poke fun at my response, because is it the word of God!

    I don't see the possibility that Cain, or anyone else aside from Noah and those with him on the ark survived.

    Genesis 7
    19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
    20 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.
    21 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:
    22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.
    23 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.
    24 And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

    Much love!

    Where did the bones of dinosaurs come from?

    The dinosaurs, and generally speaking, the other layers of fossilized creatures we find in the earth are the remains of the pre-flood earth. Plants, animals, and in a few cases, human artifacts are the remains of the creatures buried in the deluge of Noah's time.

    Long "natural" processes do not account for fossilization. Animals that lay down and die are scavenged, decay, and do not form fossils. And in fact fossilization is now known to occur in a matter of months in ideal conditions, and in a few years in average conditions.

    Long processes do not account for the layered sedimentation. For the layered sedimentation, you need to have lots of motion in a large body of water which is carrying with it the mud and rocks and trees and plants and animals. As the water moves, the objects sort according to buoyancy, and size, and so forth, giving you a layer of this rock then a layer of that rock, with these fossils, and those fossils.

    And of course one of the particularly interesting things to me when we look at fossils are the fossilized trees, standing upright through "millions of years" of rock layers. That speaks volumes to me.

    Much love!

    Dinosaurs once lived on the Earth... I'm not sure how your question makes sense.

    I believe science is wrong on the age of dinosaur bones but don't think it matters so much.

    Races of men come from adaptations God built into man s DNA.

    Cain was only the son of the devil in the same sense that all disobedient sinners are. He was just a man.

    The people who know the truth and reject it are sons of the devil because of rejecting God.

    I just saw this part . . .

    He only needed to have sex with one, Eve.

    So then, nothing in the Bible about Satan having sex with Eve, and nothing in the Bible about Cain surviving the flood (actually, it seems clear to me that he didn't), I am a little curious how you've come to think this.

    Much love!

    No

    Maybe, but I would have to get the education to begin to even say.

    From God

    I don't think they are but some believe they are in Job, could be

    Nope

    Not in the sense that Satan gave birth to them but in the sense they follow him without realizing it since Satan is the Father of lies and the Pharisees were hypocrites

    Yes see above

    Depends on the rubric you use and the grading criteria

    To answer these questions one must dig deep, but I will just say:

    The trees in the garden were not trees but people created in Gen 1, just as the tree of life represented and was Jesus, God.

    The tree of good and evil represented some good people and at least one very bad person, the devil, or shall we say one person who was possessed.

    Eve told God she was seduced and she did eat, or to say she had sex with the person that was evil. The baby she had first was of the devil, Cain, and then a baby of Adam, Abel. Twins, but not identical.

    Cain was cast out of the garden but took a wife and that is how the world became populated with children of the devil.

    Think about it! Jesus said to those Pharisees "ye are the child of the devil.
    Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
    Jesus can not lie.
