A newly uncovered skeleton of a dinosaur, named Ebenezer, has confirmed that ancient creatures lived along with humans during the time of Noah.

On 24 May 2014, Ebenezer, belonging to Allosaurus genus, was displayed in Kentucky's Creation Museum run by the Answers in Genesis ministry, which considers it a "world-class" dinosaur skeleton that confirms the submersion of Earth in water during the time of Noah's flood.

The skeleton is 30-foot-long, 10-foot high Allosaurus and still has nearly 50 percent of its undamaged bones and a complete skull with 53 teeth. The dinosaur bears similarity to Tyrannosaurus rex.

Some of the scientists claims that about 60 million years ago, these dinosaurs roamed on the planet, earth. But, according to Mark Clementz, a paleontologist from the University of Wyoming, allosaurus, lived in North America during the late Jurassic age, about 150 million years ago and that the creature was carnivorous.

About 10 years back, 50 percent of dinosaur's bones were uncovered in Colorado. Analyzing the bone, archaeologists found that the creature died about 4,300 years ago in a global flood.

"He likely tried to flee the violently rising waters surging over the land where he lived, and he was finally swept away and rapidly buried beneath tons of water-borne sediment, explaining the practically undisturbed arrangement of so many of his smaller bones," The Independent quoted the museum's researchers as saying.

"Ultimately he and every air-breathing animal not on the Ark with Noah died (Genesis 7:22). Biblical history gives us a context for this dinosaur's death and preservation in what's called the 'Jurassic' portion of the fossil record." 

The bones were purchased by Elizabeth Streb Peroutka Foundation more than a decade ago, but had later chosen to donate the same to the Creation Museum. The specimen is currently valued at one million dollar.

It is believed that this new exhibit will aid in unearthing scientific issues related to evolution and will provide evidence in defense of the Genesis book, Evolutionists have used dinosaurs to reach children to explain their worldview. The museum uses dinosaurs to help tell their true history according to the Bible, explains Ken Ham, the founder of the Creation Museum.
