"Where would we find dinosaur fossils if Noah's flood was a global flood?"

Where would we find dinosaur fossils if Noah's flood was a global flood?

Where there were dinosaurs.

If a similar Flood happened today, which it won’t, we would’t find a lot of elks in Stockholm or a lot of lynx in Malmö, even if Sweden has both elks and lynx. And Stockholm and Malmö, where we don’t look for such.

This calls for a caveat.

Flood waters with débris could certainly carry large blocks of stone up to 500 km away, so you could find parts of dinosaurs up to 500 km away. A huge boulder on arrival 500 km away would arguably still be reduced to half of original diameter, most having become pebbles, and a T Rex tooth could be 500 km from where the Flood hit the T Rex, but a complete T Rex skeleton would arguably have been buried by mud so quickly that it stayed in situ, or approximately. Otherwise it would not have been a complete T Rex skeleton (which we have 30 of, by the way).

So, for instance the diverse critters (not all of which would qualify as dinosaurs by far, perhaps very few if any) of Karroo, would, insofar as there are complete skeleta, have lived in their respective “assemblage zones” of Karroo.

Does that answer the question?
