Dear Steve,

I was amazed while reading your article about the age of the earth, to read your possible theory of Satan creating the dinosaurs! I have always felt that this was the case, but had no proof. I have asked people who knew more than I , and they have told me that God created everything. I also felt that the dinosaurs are inconsistent with God’s character. But I was told that God created them to be future fuel for us. I am so glad to read your explanation. It makes sense. I had never made the serpentine connection. And you certainly explained it in a way I never could have. You are a blessing to us, you’ve been given wisdom and insight from God, and it is so appreciated!

Dear Sandie,
Thanks for your positive comments and reactions. I do want to clarify that what my article proposed is that Lucifer designed and created the dinosaurs with delegated creative power from God the Creator (the Elohim). Lucifer was himself a created being (Ezekiel 28:15) so he did not have innate creative power. Lucifer apparently had this delegated power for so long on earth (in our measure of time) that he became puffed up in vanity and came to see himself as God’s equal (Isaiah 14:12-14). He forgot that “what God gives, God can take away.” Lucifer’s wielding of delegated creative powers from God is the only logical explanation I can see which explains why 1/3rd of the angels also thought Lucifer was God’s equal (Revelation 12:4).
The dinosaurs were clearly built for battle, conflict and inflicting major damage upon each other. This is the complete antithesis of what God creates. God created a perfect creation at Eden wherein everything was “very good” (Genesis 1:31) and all species lived in harmony. When God restores our world in the future after Christ’s return, Eden will be restored and “they shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain” (Isaiah 11:9). Isaiah 11:6-9 confirms that animal natures will all be made peaceful and harmonious when this age yields to the millennial age/Messianic Age. It is a telling point that when Lucifer (who became Satan) and his rebellious angels were hurled back to earth (Luke 10:18), God wiped out the dinosaur life forms that had composed the pre-Adamic world, and the planet became a flooded, darkened wreck (Genesis 1:2, Jude 13) until God recreated life on the earth beginning in Genesis 1:3. God did not want the dinosaurs in his creation!
