Dear Rabbi Shapiro,

 

What is the proper hashkofo in regards to dinosaurs? Is there anything wrong in believing that they existed within the past 5774 years?

 

Also, I heard someone quote Rabbi Miller ztzl that they didn't exist, that is alive, and that Hashem only placed their bones in the earth to give us a nisayon in regards to the true age of the universe. Can anyone confirm or refute this?

 

I ask this because I've noticed time and again that people on the "frummer" spectrum are "dinosauraphobic" :lol: .

I recall Rav Shapiro saying they lived once, and became extinct. presumably he meant at the mabul.
