Not So Many Dinosaurs to Fit On Noah's Ark

We know the routine. Some sneering sidewinder says, "Ain't no way Moses got all them animals onto the Ark, especially dinosaurs. Too big!" Typically, these people haven't bothered to do their homework, they just have their opinions to express (prejudicial conjecture and begging the question). Everyone knows that dinosaurs fit through the door because they were heavily greased first, then stored in the overhead luggage compartments.


Scoffers have said that there are too many dinosaurs to fit on Noah's Ark. That has been addressed by creationists, but new evidence shows that there are fewer dinosaur species than previously thought.

Creationists have explained about dinosaurs (and the other critters) on the Ark many times. There is something else to consider: there weren't as many as people thought. A fossil would be found, maybe some bones, and then it would be classified. But it turns out that several could merge into one because several that were classified belonged to the same species at different stages of development.
So, how did all of those dinosaurs fit on the Ark? As it turns out, the answer is, ‘More easily than we once thought.’ Why? Because at least a third of the dinosaurs we once thought we knew never existed!

‘Dinosaur Jack’ Horner is one of the best known palaeontologists (fossil experts) in the United States and he has been looking at how dinosaurs grow.1 This is a bit trickier than looking, say, at how frogs grow, because we can’t go out and watch dinosaurs growing directly. We can only look at their fossils.

There are some clues though. One is that juvenile bones are spongier and have more pores in them than adult bones. Spongy bones can still grow, while adult bones are not going to change much anymore.
