Dinosaur Classification

Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

(Mark 10:15) KJV

Whether or not a Biblical word translated as a kind of serpent refers to something which may have been a dinosaur is context dependent. Sometimes a snake is just a snake. Sometimes a serpent is a Sauropod.

Creation was sperogenetic, which is to say that the abiogenesis of kinds of animals and plants took place in the firmasphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere. The systematic manner in which God created is still obvious but the details of it have been obscured by the process of devolution: genetic decay over time which explains how the animals saved on Noah’s ark gave rise to the current distribution of biodiversity.

The classification of dinosaurs is traceable to their spherogenetic creation because of Noah’s flood. Whereas other groups have diverged and changed since the flood to be almost unrecognizable as their original kind, the dinosaurs were wiped out at a stage of development which was substantially similar to their created kind.

As a result, it’s clearly obvious why dinosaurs are divided into two main groups based on hip structure: one group has an atmospheric progenitor, the other has a hydrospheric progenitor.

Dinosaur classification began in 1842 when Sir Richard Owen placed Iguanodon, Megalosaurus, and Hylaeosaurus in “a distinct tribe or suborder of Saurian Reptiles, for which I would propose the name of Dinosauria.” In 1887 and 1888 Harry Seeley divided dinosaurs into the two orders Saurischia and Ornithischia, based on their hip structure. These divisions have proved remarkably enduring, even through several seismic changes in the taxonomy of dinosaurs.

Dinosaurs are classified into two main types based on hip structure: Ornithischia and Saurischia. Hip structure relates to their origin in Hydrosphere vs. Atmosphere.

Class Reptilia

How can we be so sure that Biblical references to serpents include dragons and dinosaurs? Dinosaurs are reptiles, dragons are also reptiles, reptiles are serpents. It’s entirely possible that the Biblical word dragon refers to a dinosaur.

We don’t find human and dinosaur remains in the same bed of a strata because humans and Dinosaurs didn’t live in the same habitats.
