“Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox.”
The Genesis creation account tells us that in the perfect world that God created there was no death. This means that there were no predators. In fact, Genesis 1:30 specifically states that God gave all the beasts and birds every green herb for food. And, yes, this would include all the dinosaurs. Some discoveries made in 2005 now add strong scientific evidence to support the Genesis account that in the beginning all the beasts ate the green herbs for food.
Of course, evolutionists found great amusement in these Bible claims since even plant-eating dinosaurs didn’t have the right kind of teeth to eat, say, grass. And besides, they said, grass did not evolve until long after the dinosaurs were extinct. Scientists from India’s Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotony examined fossilized sauropod droppings to see what they were eating. Common in such droppings are bits of silica called phytoliths. These bits of silica were the remains of the plants eaten by those dinosaurs and are unique to each species of plant. To the surprise of the entire scientific community, the phytoliths were made by grasses, including relatives of rice, bamboo and forage grasses.
It is now unquestionably clear that grasses did exist when the dinosaurs lived and that the sauropods ate grass. On this fact, the Bible was right all along, and evolutionary science was wrong.
Father, I thank You that Your Word is true in all that it teaches, including my salvation in Jesus Christ.
