Saxon Dinosaur

A Saxon coffin at St Peter’s church, Conisbrough, South Yorkshire, appears to show dragons and a human interacting. It is essential for the creationist, contrary to received scientific opinion, that these huge lizards and our ancestors coexisted. If this is the case, they doubtless competed for natural resources. If the creationist is not correct, then the Saxons were just very imaginative.


Job 41

[Leviathan,] I will not conceal his limbs,

His mighty power, or his graceful proportions.

13 Who can remove his outer coat?

Who can approach him with a double bridle?

14 Who can open the doors of his face,

With his terrible teeth all around?

15 His rows of scales are his pride,

Shut up tightly as with a seal;

He is confident, though the Jordan gushes into his mouth,

24 Though he takes it in his eyes,

Or one pierces his nose with a snare.
