I do alot of reading from the Bible, I do consider myself a religious person, I also think that the Paranormal is part Religious, concerning Demonic forces, since it was fallen Angels who rebelled against God, got thrown out of Heaven, to me that makes it religious.
For a long many years now I have thought about UFO's, Dinosaurs, prehistoric man etc. The Ancient Cave drawings that show what appears to be aircraft, people in space suits, and Ive always had a hard time trying to figure out how all this fits into the Bible. We know all this is true by the evidence of Dinosaurs that leave behind fossils, Prehistoric man, things in this world such as early civilizations that appear to have been extremely intelligent, built cities with such precision that they couldnt have done it by themselves with the tools of the day.
I have asked many a Preacher about this, and most all of them either change the subject, or simply make the excuse that UFO's are the works of the devil, just to get me off their backs. I will always be faithful to the Bible, but it doesnt cover the Dinosuar ages, or early man millions of years prior to Adam and Eve. I suppose it will always leave me with tons of questions that will never be answered.
Just a thought.

A very thoughtful question, often asked. I don't have the answer, and I will venture the guess no one else does either, and many will feel uncomfortable in admitting they don't know, even if they are supposed to be "specialists in the field". The Bible was written for and given to Mankind. It applies to us and our immortal souls, and the preparation for salvation. It was not intended for elephants, manta rays, eels, or dinosaurs. I don't feel the omission of these really affects the message or its intent. Also, time as we know it, was developed by man, as a point of reference for past, present, or future events. What is time to an Immortal Being, and how do they properly convey it to us? We base everything on the earth's rotation, and its annual trip around the sun. The messages given to man to record had to pass through our filters and concepts, to write and record as best we could understand. The musunderstanding, in any, and the faults therein, belong only to us in our limitations. The intended and important portion of the message is there. To me, it doesn't really matter if the message was delivered from the top of a mountain, the middle of a field, or the front of a pulpit. Or, the time of day, year, from what calendar, or in what manner. All that really matters is The Message.
