There's always been a dispute between science and religion. It's something that can't be helped, and they are the same in many ways.
Most people don't see why they have to fight all the time over who's right and who's wrong. When it comes to things like the dinosaurs, theres going to be some kind of tussle because no one really knows what happened to them. The religious view points toward Adams sin being the reason the dinosaurs were wiped out. The scientific point of view is that there was a cataclysmic asteroid impact that made them go extinct. Both are similar because the dinosaurs were wiped out either way.
Scientists often think at times that the existence of dinosaurs and their demise is so shrouded in mystery, that people will never know what happened to them. According to Scientists dinosaurs first evolved around 235 million years ago, way before man evolved. No human being lived, when the dinosaurs were alive. The only way to get some clue about what they looked like and how they lived is all in the fossil layers under the earths surface. However, around 65 million years everything changed to cause the extinction of those wondrous animals. Most scientists think that an asteroid hit the earth and wiped them out. But there's a new theory, Professor Gerta Keller, who is also a Paleontologist wrote that, while her theory may not be as riveting as a massive space object hitting Earth, it answers the questions that she said didn't seem to fit in the “wipeout” theory thats been publicized since the early 1980s. The theory that's been branded into our minds was that a single asteroid involves the Chicxulub crater in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.

So until scientists really figure out what happened to the dinosaurs, we just have to continue arguing and discovering more things about them. So how do you feel about what really happened to dinosaurs? Is the bible making it up that their were so called Dino’s back in the day or is it true and they were? Or is science trying to turn our heads with the known cataclysmic asteroid impact? All we can do is sit back and wait for the science or religion to come up with something more exciting.
