Leviathan, the Dragon that is in the Sea

Not long ago, I participated in a paleontological excavation that was taking place in western Kansas. This area is known as the Niobrara Formation, and contains hundreds of thousands of fossilized fish and other aquatic creatures.

Besides many fossilized clams, the team found very large fish vertebrae, and dinosaur fossils including what appeared to be portions of a Mosasaur skull, and a well-articulated scissor-tail xyphactanus.

The Mosasaur is thought to have been a marine predator dinosaur, and some fossils have been found reaching lengths of more than 50 feet!

The Bible gives reference to a creature that might have been similar in appearance. Leviathan was described as a seafaring dragon, and was mentioned in Job, Psalms, and Isaiah. “None is so fierce that dare stir him up…and a flame goeth out of his mouth…” A dragon so large and unapproachable that we’re told “upon earth there is not his like”.

Many dinosaurs went extinct around the time of Noah’s flood, and the Biblical record tells us that even the highest mountains were covered with water. This would explain why we see so many layers of sediment turned to stone preserving the fossils of millions of animals around the world.
