I am strongly opposed to evolution. However, there is one nagging question in the creation story that I don’t quite get.

Why didn’t the Dinosaurs try to eat Adam and Eve?

As I understand it, the Dinosaurs were not wiped off the earth until the time of the flood along with the Nephilim.

Since the Bible never mentions dinosaurs at all, you'll need to ask the people who are trying to rewrite it to include them.

Are you disputing the existence of the dinosaurs? Just b/c the bible does not mention them does not mean they were never there.

Dinosaurs fossils were planted by Satan to throw us on the wrong track, and away from the Lord.  "Dinosaurs" never roamed the earth, and they never breathed.  They only exist in the fossil state.  Do not let Satan lead you away from the unaissailable truth the the Bible, which is God's unfaillible word.

Genesis 15:9
"So the LORD said to him, "Bring me a heifer, a goat and a ram, each three years old, along with a dove and a young pigeon."

Did he plant them before or after the incident in the garden of eden?

The Bible is silent on this issue, but logic dictates they must have been planted at or near the time of the creation of the Earth.  I do not think the Lord Almighty would plant the dinosaur fossils AFTER allowing Adam and Eve to settle, for his activities might have been conspicuous.  However, since God is omnipotent, it is possible that the fossils were planted later on, sight unseen, and evidence of the planted fossils covered up.

Upon serious consideration of your question, I would have to say that it can go either way.

Hebrews 9:13
"The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who are ceremonially unclean sanctify them so that they are outwardly clean."

Fossils were clearly planted by Xenu.

I don't believe "Xenu" is mentioned in the Bible.  What is "Xenu?"

Esther 1:1
"This is what happened during the time of Xerxes, the Xerxes who ruled over 127 provinces stretching from India to Cush"

But you said Satan planted the fossils while God planted the Garden of eden. If Satan planted the fossiles prior to his first sin in the Garden of Ede with the intent on misleading mankind would this not have been his first rebellion against God? Why did God not eliminate him when he first planted the dinosaurs?

That is a most excellent observation, you are pointing out that I didn't think things through.  But still, there could be two interpretations.

(1) God planted the fossils as a test of Faith.
(2) Satan planted the fossils to mislead us to fill up Hell with ever burning souls.

Whichever it is - doesn't really matter.  You can only believe what is in the Bible.

Isaiah 9:16
"Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray."

Do you think Satan has ever been to the Moon?

Good theological question.

Had man not been to the moon I'd have to say that Satan would probably not have had reason to go there, since there is no one to tempt.

But man has been on the moon, briefly, so there is a definite possibility that he might have attempted to tear their souls from the cradling hands of the One True God, while they were vulnerable, in a state of weighlessness, away from their family, etc.
