Description

Did you ever wonder why, in the beginning of Genesis, there’s no mention of dinosaurs or other prehistoric creatures? If we were writing about the creation of animals, these would seem like a pretty big detail (pun intended) to leave out. It seems like in the Torah’s version of creation, there were no dinosaurs. Is this a sign that the Bible doesn't match up with history?


In this video, Rabbi Fohrman argues that if we’re asking this question, it means that we’re misunderstanding something fundamental about the nature of the Torah. Watch this video to learn what the Torah is - and what it isn’t.
