DINOmite!

I have a confession to make. I'm slightly obsessed with dinosaurs (and Alcatraz, but that's a whole other post) and I'm completely giddy that the Munchkin has been learning about them in school, she is also becoming obsessed with dino's, their history, and how they met their great demise.

She is thirsty for knowledge and we have been spending our afternoons and evenings googling random facts about Dinosaurs.

Did you know...

Dinosaurs have been found in 35 states?

Did you also know that the Brontosaurus never actually existed?  When it was discovered, it was believed to be a different species than the Apatosaurus. In 1903 scientists realized that both dinosaurs where the same so they went back to calling it Apatosaurus.

(Do you really care?)

Google is so much easier than hitting up the library like I had to do in the good ol' days.

I don't geek out on many things, but Dinosaurs fascinate me.

This has also prompted me to start researching what Christians believe when it comes to Dinosaurs. The Husband and I were talking about it the other night, we were stumped. While I think most Christians believe that they existed, their time frame seems to be skewed as to what the scientists believe... It also varies greatly from Christian to Christian,  this also fascinates me.

If you're a Christian reading this post, what are your thoughts on Dinosaurs and when/if they existed? I would love to hear your views.
