I have a question that I would like answered. Could you please explain to me how dinosaurs fit into the idea of creation? It confuses me, that if the world was created in seven days, how did dinosaurs exist?



Dear Bob,

Thanks for the quick question. I wish I could give a quick answer. I looked in both Catholic Answers and New Advent, but did not see anything on the topic. A serious answer would involve an in-depth study of the teaching of Genesis, especially chapter 1. Dr. Scott Hahn has an excellent series of tapes on Genesis. I would recommend them to you.

Perhaps another reader would like to give a response.

God bless,

Fr. Phil Bloom
