the reason for this is because dinosaurs and the ice age is not as important as what/ who created the earth n the first place. plus GOd created the earth long before dinosaurs and ice age was even created therefore not as important!
Im a believing catholic and it may be because its not an important time period for catholics because nothing we know of happened during that time or my personal believe, there are missing pages (many many many) from the bible that were lost in time or someone prevented them from ever entering the bible
Because the men who wrote the books of the bible lived in a time before science could prove these things. So they had no idea they even existed. The simple fact is that the bible was written by man, not god.
Let's pretend that the Bible is totally inspired by God... This inspiration is not always hard fact, and it's meant to be a teaching aid. Now, the Hebrews did not condone change. A copy transcribed with even a tiny mistake would be destroyed. Christians have no such compunction... I have at least two Bibles with "chapter names." They both start with in the beginning God created the universe. Then there's a chapter title "the story of man." The next sentence is "Now, the Earth was null and void."
A lot could happen between the creation of the universe and man. Ages could have come and gone, but "now" we will talk of man. Sounds a bit inspired to me.

Interestingly, the word dragon is used a number of times in the Old Testament. In most instances, the word dinosaur could substitute for dragon and it would fit very nicely. Creation scientists believe that dinosaurs were called dragons before the word dinosaur was invented in the 1800s. We would not expect to find the word dinosaur in Bibles, as it was translated well before the word dinosaur was ever used.
Also, there are many very old history books in various libraries around the world that have detailed records of dragons and their encounters with people. Surprisingly, many of these descriptions of dragons fit with how modern scientists would describe dinosaurs, even Tyrannosaurus. Unfortunately, this evidence is not considered valid by evolutionists. Why? Only because their belief is that man and dinosaurs did not live at the same time!
However, the more we research the historical literature, the more we realize there is overwhelming evidence that dragons were real beasts, much like our modern reconstructions of dinosaurs, and that their existence has been recorded by many different people, even just hundreds of years ago.
So many love to use trivial details to attempt to disprove the Almighty. I find that rather fascinating. The omission of certain events or existence of particular creatures in no way disqualifies an entire book or its divine inspiration. If I write an autobiography yet omit details I feel unimportant to the overall storyline of my life, that in no way disproves what I've written or my very existence!
The bible was written as a record of the revelation of God and his love, judgment and restoration of creation. It is not a scientific journal or explanation of even a fraction of all possible scientific data. The facts and histories it does share are to show it's "real world" implications and verification of interpretive meaning of God's revelation. Some try to show examples of say dinosaurs in the bible, but not without putting themselves out on a limb and confusing people from what it's message is.
Oh but it does God is very specific he said in the beginning he created the heavens and the earth period. he didn't say when read Jeremiah chapter 4,19-31 there he said he destroyed the first Earth age and brought in this earth age .Isaiah chapter 44 , there he said he created all eons .Isaiah chapter 45 vs 18 God is very specific on the earth that was before. the dinosaurs and the ice age were in the earth age before when Satan tried to take over so God destroy the earth age and brought in thisearth age that we now live in not different earths different earth ages. study the Bible in it you will find the answer
The Bible is Gods life guide for us. It is not a tell all expose. All that God is could not fit in any library let alone one book. A lot of stuff that we humans make such a fuss about and insist is SO important - just isnt in the greater scheme of things. Like dinosaurs. They are dead. Where and when they might have existed has absolutely no bearing on salvation or heaven or how we need to live our lives. And then theres the Faith component. Gods asks us to believe by Faith. Because He said something He expects us to believe it without hard proof the sinful human mind wants. The important stuff. The unimportant stuff He could care less about and i exoect He just shakes His head in despair when His children fight over seriously mundane issues like when dinosaurs existed.
Actually, many books of the bible have been removed from the original list of books that were in the bible. The book of Enoch is one of these which the Catholic Church robbed from the worlds common knowledge. In this book, the story of how 200 of the "watchers", or the extra terrestrial angelic beings that were never supposed to intermingle with human development disobeyed gods will and took wives among human women. They bore children together and gave birth to a race of creatures known as the nephilim. The nephilim were what we would know of as the race of giants such as Goliath. These creature's skeletal remains have been popping up around the world more and more frequently. These watchers taught early man of advanced technology, ways of war, separating roots from plants(pharmacology), and how to summon unearthly beings. This is the reason god flooded the earth as in Noah's ark. When this came to pass, food sources shrank as well as sizes of creatures due to the thinning of the ozone layer. The atmospheric pressure dropped and the suns rays became much less filtered also contributing to shorter life spans and more rapid life cycles of food sources. Plant life no longer grew to its more abundant sizes and everything else trickled down to smaller growth and life spans. There has been few studies of greater atmospheric pressures promoting larger growth, proving successful evidence for this theory, the most popular study involving piranhas. It's all there supported by history and science. Pretty exciting to learn about.
