The US government has seized the bones of a dinosaur worth one million dollars

Listen to Today's Program Play

The courts in NY state issued a warrant forcing an auction house to return the fossil bones of what they call a 70 million year old dinosaur unearthed in the nation of Mongolia where it was discovered in the last decade.

The bones of the dinosaur were sold at auction in NY for one million dollars, but the court said that the sale was illegal because the fossil was illegally imported into the US.

The transaction for the sale of this dinosaur fossil has also been termed a fraud since there are those who say that the bones are not 70 million years old as claimed, thus the value of the bones is way over priced.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The sale of a 70 million year old dinosaur fossil for one million dollars is not only a fraud in the world of collectors, but totally contradicts the Bible account of Creation as well as the end time scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy.

A recent news report of the sale of a 70 million year old dinosaur fossil for one million dollars motivated the US government to stop the sale and actually confiscate the bones to return them to their rightful owner in Mongolia. When I read the story, I was taken back by the fact that someone was naive enough to pay one million dollars for a bunch of bones not nearly as old as claimed but also not as rare either since there are vast numbers of these bones across the world and even some dinosaurs still alive in our world today. The alligators found in the Everglades in Florida are the living species of dinosaurs that can be found in America. For sure, these bones are not 70 million years old having been created around 6000 years ago, Exodus 20:11 and Genesis 1:24 - 25.

This report is evidence of how God's Word is absolute in its record of Creation as found in Genesis 1. As one adds up the number of years between Creation and the Flood, Genesis 5 and the years total between the Flood and Abraham, you get approximately a 2000 year period of time. We know that Abraham lived about 4000 years ago, thus a 6000 year period of time from Creation until today. The connection between the Creation account recorded in Genesis 1 and Bible prophecy for the end of times is found in many biblical accounts of both Creation and Bible prophecy. Let me give you one example. Zechariah 12:1 speaks of Creation and the rest of Zechariah 12 lays out a prophetic scenario for the end times.

The Biblical account of Creation, absolute truth is indeed setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.
