The discovery of fossils by ancient man may account also for the Akkadian
legend of the flood and its rapid spread throughout the ancient world.
Although local flooding might account for some aspects of the flood story
it may have been impacted by the discovery of marine fossils upon various
mountains. These myths were retold by various cultures and ended up in
the Bible in the story of Noah.
Sorry this isn't related to dinosaurs but it does follow along the idea
on how fossils impacted various beliefs! :)
Thanks for the digression.
