The king of dinosaurs — Tyrannosaurus rex — certainly was not designed to be a carnivore, according to Paul Taylor of Creation Today.

The legendary Tyrannosaurus rex probably “ate people” and other dinosaurs, he said in video uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday. But the huge dinosaur with teeth as big as bananas was truly a herbivore, despite its predatory tendencies.

“One thing is for sure, the theropod dinosaurs were not created to eat meat,” Taylor said. “God created all creatures to eat plants, and he gave some of them sharp teeth so that they would be able to do so. Some of those particular mechanisms of different sorts, including teeth, may have changed after Adam’s sin so that such creatures could eat meat.”

Just because animals have large sharp teeth doesn’t mean they are meat-eaters, he explained.
