Work on Extinction

nicebirdyThe word, “extinction”, is a funny word. It implies that all things under it must be non-existent today. For example, people say dinosaurs are extinct. They say they died out a long time ago and that no more live today. They also say things like this about zooneden (megafuana), pliosaurs, plesiosaurs, etc.

Yes, extinction is an interesting word. I once talked about why the above creatures have to be extinct in the evolutionary mindset. Here is a quote from that study:

See, if dinosaurs were still alive today, and they looked like the fossils we find of them, that would mean, for the evolutionist, that this creature went through 65 million years of existence without changing a bit! That would be devastating for any evolutionist!

But, that would only be for the dinosaurs that lived right before the “major extinction“. Imagine all the other dinosaurs that lived tens of millions of years before the extinction! If these creatures had survived and hadn’t evolved . . . it would not be good for evolutionists.

However, one might ask, what does extinction mean for the creationist.

First off, extinction is not a myth. There are things that are extinct. Certain species of dinosaurs are definitely extinct. Likewise, some species of pliosaurs, plesiosaurs, pterosaurs, zooneden, etc. are extinct. If they were all live we would most certainly see many of them each day. You can’t hide thousands of species of animals very easily.

Secondly, extinction is not anti-science, anti-creation, or anti-evolution. Although it does cross the border of God’s original creation, it is something that effects the post-Fall world.

Thirdly, extinction is final. You can’t bring mammoths back from the icy tomb even if you do have all you need. You won’t get a true mammoth. Remember Sid’s songs on Ice Age: The Meltdown? “Someday, when you’ve gone extinct . . . hey, hey, hey what’s that sound? All the mammoths are in the ground . . . if your species will continue clap your hands *clap, clap*”

Sorry, couldn’t help but add that part. I should note though that God can reverse extinction and will in the end when all former things pass away.

Fourthly, extinction is one of creation’s strongest arguments against theistic evolution.

In theistic evolution, they believe that God used evolution to make the world. However, in the Bible it makes it very clear that death did not come to creation until after the Fall. Therefore, nothing could have died before human beings “evolved”.

This being so, theistic evolutionists have a problem because, according to their belief, death started happening billions of years before humans hit the scene. Now that causes headaches.

Aspects of Zooneden Creatures

I am finally able to write an article on Zooneden! I have been waiting for a long time but just have not had the time.

I would say a few aspects of Zooneden creatures (as far as we will explore them) would be as follows:

Mammals

Often found sketched in caves

Creatures normally labeled as prehistoric

As far as we know, extinct

These, I say, would be a few aspects of the creatures we will be studying. I promise, as soon as I have time, I will write more for this section. But, for now, let’s go a little deeper into the history of Zooneden creatures.

Zoonedens have been branded, by the evolutionists, prehistoric creatures. This word, “prehistoric” means “before written history”. Such a thing does not exist since God has recorded history since the beginning (Genesis 1:1).

So, Zoonedens are not prehistoric. But, what are they?

Zoonedens are any number of mammals that are now extinct, at least as far as we know. They can normally be called Ice Age creatures and even mega-fauna. These creatures were the giants of post-flood ages. As the dinosaurs started to die out these creatures started to die out as well. But, they did it slower and have been better preserved in images and fossils.

The world of Zoonedens is one full of design and complexity that would shock the weak mind of man.

Zooneden

This post marks the beginning of a new series. The only problem: what is with that name?

First of all, this series will be doing profiles and Q&A on creatures like the mammoth and the saber-toothed tiger. These creatures would normally just be called prehistoric but since there is no such thing as prehistory (before written record; the Bible records from the first second of time until the last) I had to call them something else. After some Hebrew and Greek word-searching I came up with Zooneden. These are two words mean “beast” (zoon, Greek) and “Eden” (eden, Hebrew). In short Zooneden means “beasts of Eden”.

Of course, all creatures were Zooneden but since we have names for dinosaurs, pterosaurs, pliosaurs, plesiosaurs, etc. I figured a name that would be easy to understand (and pronounce ZOO-KNEE-DEN) would be able to encompass the animals that will grace this series.

Some of the more famous creatures that will be in this Zooneden series are:

Wooly Mammoth

Smilodon – Sabre-Toothed Cat (Tiger would be the incorrect saying)

Mastodon

Megaloceros

And many, many more.
