I have a theory that holds a lot of weight, in fact it could be the missing reality between science and religion where both have appeared a myth.
After watching the beginning of the film a Land Before Time where they teach as truth the Big Bang Theory and Evolution I was glad it was a cartoon and I could explain it away as just a story, which it is, just as someone would explain away a Bible cartoon or book as just a story. However this was on the back-end of a real possibility that even science couldn’t refute and the Bible accounts could be true.
Hear me out with an open mind, after all I have nothing to gain personally.
When a man attempts to climb a mountain one of his main enemies to overcome is altitude, because altitude means that the air gets thinner and that makes it hard for life to survive, a man might pass out and in some cases die.
Having said that let us take into account the story of Genesis:
6 And God said, Let there be a firmament [the expanse of the sky] in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters [below] from the waters [above].
7 And God made the firmament [the expanse] and separated the waters which were under the expanse from the waters which were above the expanse. And it was so.
8 And God called the firmament Heavens. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day.
Let us firstly look at this concept of the fact that it has been listed that there is a record of a great expanse of water above the waters (sea) below.
Let us fast forward to the account of Noah in Genesis 6
17 For behold, I, even I, will bring a flood of waters upon the earth to destroy and make putrid all flesh under the heavens in which are the breath and spirit of life; everything that is on the land shall die.
Now the Biblical account was that until this great flood there had been no rain, the earth was watered with the mist and dew of the land so the concept of a great rain was alien.
Science tells us that many of the world’s canyons rivers etc needed a great expanse of waters to fall and flood like situations to carve out the river ways etc as we know them today but there is no record of any such events except the assumed happening of such an event. The only account of such an event is the story of Noah and the Ark.
But what about the dinosaurs and how did mankind get wiped out as Noah’s story tells us?
Let us assume for one minute that sea level back then was not sea level now, the reason I say this is in the account of both science and Noah a great amount of water fell from the sky and lifted sea levels over virtually all land and the bible never tells us that the water levels return to their original levels.
So instead of assuming that the water levels were as high as they are today we must assume that the levels were much lower, in fact there have been many findings of whole cities actually very far under current sea levels, completely intact.
In assuming that the water levels were much lower and that cities were under current sea levels we can assume that mankind and life lived much lower in altitude than they do today. Bear in mind at this point the fact that the Bible accounts of Giants and giant creatures roaming the earth and the fact that there is plenty of evidence to the fact in modern science.
We can now assume that life lived much further under the current sea levels than they do today which also means that the air was much thicker at these lower altitudes as can be examined today in science from sea level to the top of any mountain.
If life lived much lower in altitude than they do today then that would mean that larger animals such as Dinosaurs could have lived as well as giants quite comfortably, but then imagine a great flood:
- All life would try to escape to higher ground in order to save themselves from drowning
Now imagine that all life was trying to get to higher ground when they did the altitude would create and air density issue which would cause these animals to firstly pas out, secondly to die and thirdly when the water levels because so high that the life in question could get no higher in altitude and also no higher on land this would mean that all of life would be drowned.
Now, science speaks of an ice age to explain many phenomenons around the world but these same phenomenons can just as likely be caused by great flooding on the earth, also scientifically observable evidence. So let us forget an ice age and think of it as a flood age, perhaps 3 months or so (Bible account) all of these ice age phenomenons could just as much be caused by a flood of this magnitude over this period of time.
We must think of the probability of the water subsidence not returning to its original sea levels which would mean that Noah and his family would run aground up Mount Ararat and would then only have what was once referred to as the highlands (before the flood when sea levels were lower) which would also mean that the only life that could survive at these new high land levels would be the much smaller creatures as they are known today from the Elephant to the Rodent with mankind left. Let us presume Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest was a part of this equation and think of the principal of the survival of the fittest in this case.
David was said to have fought a giant, so we know that a giant could survive at the new altitudes but for how long? The bones of Giants have been found around the world and these in excess of 35′ and the accounts of Giants in Genesis would match such findings, however we can assume that Goliath and his genetic pool were much smaller than that from the Bible accounts so we can already see a decline in the survival of the weakest if the altitude was too thin for the 36′ giants, that might leave the survival of perhaps 12′ giants still managing to survive at these new higher altitudes. The problem would be things such as food sources and a decline in number to procreate etc. eventually dying out to leave the fittest members the smaller human of 6′.
So far we have accounted for both the scientific and Biblical claims and yet to find reason to doubt either but just from a more realistic perspective than millions of years etc.
When we consider the other Bible verses in Genesis account of creation we can see that it continues to follow along the same discoveries as science with its knowledge of Pangaea:
9 And God said, Let the waters under the heavens be collected into one place [of standing], and let the dry land appear. And it was so.
10 God called the dry land Earth, and the accumulated waters He called Seas. And God saw that this was good (fitting, admirable) and He approved it.
11 And God said, Let the earth put forth [tender] vegetation: plants yielding seed and fruit trees yielding fruit whose seed is in itself, each according to its kind, upon the earth. And it was so.
12 The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed according to their own kinds and trees bearing fruit in which was their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good (suitable, admirable) and He approved it.
As you can see it highly more probable that with all of the evidence available to actually study that the Bible accounts of creation and Dinosaurs and Giants and mankind, the flood etc are actually more likely to be true than the accounts of millions of years, evolution and an ice age.
And that is where science meets religion in a factual way.

This is an add on to my original blog where more evidence has come to light as seen in picture below and quote in the last comment on this blog.
“A mass of ceratopsian dinosaurs fossilized in thick heavy sediment. They also appear to be at the top of a hill, perhaps trying to escape an oncoming flood. Just one example of billions of fossils found around the world from the GLOBAL Genesis flood.” – Biblical Creation (Facebook page)
