In reading about the discovery of Spinosaurus, a giant, swimming, meat-eating dinosaur, I was struck by the thought that such a beast is a good ‘pro’ argument in the debate about the existence of God.
Let me explain.
According to the articles I read, the Spinosaurus was 50 feet long and big enough to eat animals the size of killer whales. It lived about 155 million years ago. It swam and ate meaty things. It was a fearsome carnivore. If alive today, it would hunt killer whales and sharks. Ponder that for a moment.
Here’s where the proof of God comes into play.
If such a creature were in existence when humans began to think about sea-faring exploration, those endeavors would have been short-lived. Any sailors in their right mind would have turned the boat right around and headed back to land if they caught site of one of those beasts swimming in open water.
Failure to explore and migrate by sea would have limited human development.
So, God (and I mean that in a supreme being sort of way, not in a religious way) must have known that the Spinosauri (plural of Spinosaurus?) would have had to die out before human life could flourish.
Ergo, the natural extinction of the Spinosaurus equates to the existence of a God.
