Those creationist Christians typically place the "extinction event" in Noah's day, thus long after the fall of the historic Adam. An example is from the well-known Young Earth model defender, Institute for Creation Research, who published a rebuttal in their 2001 article Chicxulub and the Demise of the Dinosaurs written by one of their scholars: ...

To expand on GratefulDisciple's answer... ...the short version is that a lot of them don't. There are, as I see it, three-and-a-half options. GratefulDisciple already explained the "young-Earth Creationist" approach, which is to "reconcile" the two views by rejecting the Uniformitarianist worldview outright. There are many excellent ...

Background information regarding the state of humanity prior to the flood: The depravity and ungodly lifestyles of the entire world at that time were enough to cause the Lord to “regret that He had made man” (Genesis 6:1-6). Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight, and the earth was filled with violence. And God saw the earth, and behold, it was corrupt, ...

Is there mentioned any exact location where Adam and eve have been sent? No. And for good reason; the Flood caused massive, catastrophic changes to the world, such that any such information would be meaningless post-Flood. If one accepts Genesis, then, the question is pointless, because, while the answer might be interesting from a standpoint of pure ...

Until Mary Schweitzer's discoveries of soft tissue it was scientific orthodoxy that soft tissue could not remain as soft tissues for more than a few thousand years: the oldest soft tissue until her finds were in Egyptian mummies. Once she found supposedly much older soft tissue, amongst the scientific community that stopped doubting her, there was a huge ...

There are two kinds of 'free will' which philosophers speak about: liberty of spontaneity, and liberty of indifference. Liberty of spontaneity means we are free to act according to our desires, whereas liberty of indifference means we are free to choose our desires. So, for example, liberty of spontaneity means I like cheese and I can eat it whenever I want. ...

Is there any Christian teaching as to where Adam and Eve were sent after their fall from the Garden of Eden? The short answer: Not officially anyway, but for some tradition says otherwise! For example the Catholic Church has no official teachings on this matter. But in the Revelations of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich, she mentions that Adam and Eve were ...

One scholarly publication, a 2015 MDiv thesis by Mathew Thomas Hollen (of George Fox Evangelical Seminary, Portland, OR) Irenaeus Of Lyons: A Defense of Recapitulation, proposes to recover the FULL EXTENT of the theory of recapitulation, which now usually refers to merely the atonement aspect of salvation. The theory is that the Pre-Fall Adam was created ...

were all animals vegetarian/vegan before the fall? Yes; they were created this way (Genesis 1:30), and will be this way again in the New Creation (Isaiah 65:17-25). Did carnivores evolve from vegetarian ancestors? Be careful with the word "evolve". Evolutionism is an anti-theistic fallacy that has never been demonstrated and the only "...

I believe so. God created man and woman male and female before the fall. He didn't create only men before the fall, then after the fall, say "Well, we need more of you, so let's make you so that you can reproduce!" Also, as @agarza pointed out in his comment, God says in Gn 1:28, before the fall, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and ...

Concerning a fallen nature: 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree of the garden, 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for on the day you eat from it, you will certainly die.” (Genesis 2:16-17) One way of looking at God's command is to combine it with this: For in Your sight a thousand ...

Hippolytus's Easter table has ΠΑΘΟϹ ΧϹ (the passion of Christ) on a day on which the 14th of the Paschal moon falls on Friday, March 25th. The computist of AD 243 says that the world was created on March 25th, and that Jesus was born on Wednesday, March 28th, the same day that the sun and moon were created. (De Pascha Computus 4). But he says the ...

This is an interesting topic. Who have you met that truly reflects "the image of God" in their entire lives and lifestyles? Absolutely no-one if you are honest! The truth is that man was never "fully" in God's image -- otherwise Adam would not have disobeyed His Father. The confusion is due to the translation of "God created man in ...

In Calvinism, God is the primary author (not the secondary "author" as-in the "doer," but the author as-in the planner) of sin. Calvin points out that those who think God didn't plan and arrange the fall are straining the gnat of Adam while swallowing the camel of Original Sin, which he attributes to God's doing in us, not nature or ...
