If good created the world just over 2000 years ago in 6 days how do you explain dinosaurs that existed millions of years ago? If you believe that dinosaur remains are not millions of years old, but less then 2000 why is there no mention of them in the bible? Why is there no documentation of them as being around during that time? Seems to me raptors and t rexs would be sort of a nuisance and surely enough to make mention of...

No problem at all! Im glad to answer respectful questions!
You caught me right before bed. LOL

I believe that God created dinosaurs at the same time as humans. I also believe they lived with man, although they werent called dinosaurs untill recently. Dinosaur is a relativity new word, but what has been used to describe dinosaurs is the word dragon. And actually if you read in the book of Job you can see an example of one.
Job 41:12-34
"“I will not fail to speak of Leviathan’s limbs,
its strength and its graceful form.
13 Who can strip off its outer coat?
Who can penetrate its double coat of armor[b]?
14 Who dares open the doors of its mouth,
ringed about with fearsome teeth?
15 Its back has[c] rows of shields
tightly sealed together;
16 each is so close to the next
that no air can pass between.
17 They are joined fast to one another;
they cling together and cannot be parted.
18 Its snorting throws out flashes of light;
its eyes are like the rays of dawn.
19 Flames stream from its mouth;
sparks of fire shoot out.
20 Smoke pours from its nostrils
as from a boiling pot over burning reeds.
21 Its breath sets coals ablaze,
and flames dart from its mouth.
22 Strength resides in its neck;
dismay goes before it.
23 The folds of its flesh are tightly joined;
they are firm and immovable.
24 Its chest is hard as rock,
hard as a lower millstone.
25 When it rises up, the mighty are terrified;
they retreat before its thrashing.
26 The sword that reaches it has no effect,
nor does the spear or the dart or the javelin.
27 Iron it treats like straw
and bronze like rotten wood.
28 Arrows do not make it flee;
slingstones are like chaff to it.
29 A club seems to it but a piece of straw;
it laughs at the rattling of the lance.
30 Its undersides are jagged potsherds,
leaving a trail in the mud like a threshing sledge.
31 It makes the depths churn like a boiling caldron
and stirs up the sea like a pot of ointment.
32 It leaves a glistening wake behind it;
one would think the deep had white hair.
33 Nothing on earth is its equal—
a creature without fear.
34 It looks down on all that are haughty;
it is king over all that are proud.”

Sounds a little more like a dragon right?
And this would also explain the cave drawing we have of dragons.

And if they were killing humans we can imaging why they would be extinct by now.

Dinosaurs and the Bible - Answers in Genesis And theres a little more reading if you can stomach it. LOL
