This is an older post from J. Warner Wallace at coldcasechristianity.com that covers a lot of ground on some of the different perspectives that are looked at when discussing creationism and the Bible. It’s a tad on the long side but well worth the read!
Perhaps the most frequent questions asked of me related to the age of the earth are these: What do Christians say about dinosaurs?

There’s an impression, even amongst Christians, dinosaurs present the Christian community with a true dilemma. There seems to be something contradictory about the archeological record of dinosaur life, and the biblical record of creation. This apparent contradiction exists for a number of reasons, and as a community, we need to talk about them so we can move forward to accurately evaluate the natural and special revelation God has given us.
