ESV - 20 Then Noah built an altar to the Lord and took some of every clean animal and some of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

Dinosaurs were created by God when He created the animals. They lived with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and they have lived with humans throughout history. There are reports of some still living today. They are not common because they've been hunted as earth becomes more populated.
I shake my head with dismay when this subject comes up among workmates who don't know God. I can count the seconds down until I am pinged for an answer on my version of events.
Sadly they poke fun and ridicule at my divine God and Creator version and my heart sinks.
I believe it is as it is in scripture, God created everything and it was good, including dinosaurs and man. The chaos and confusion and evil came from within mankind's heart, and we are merely fanning the flames by giving the secular world an inch on this.
I can only politely stick to my guns, offer explanations I believe based on Gods word and pray He will water the seed. As for the devil, he is a defeated enemy in my opinion and for fear of knowingly casting my pearls before swine I will not dignify his tactics by creating a scene.
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters (Genesis 1:1 - 1:2 KJV). And the earth WAS without form and void. If you read the hebrew version, that WAS is translated "hayah" which means became. This means the earth was once in a certain state and it became formless and void. And we know God is a God of perfection, he doesn't create imperfect things. This means something happened on the earth way before Adam and eve were created. There was a world that was("research on the world that was "). Now scientists find fossils, and carbon dating shows that some of those fossils are millions of years old. From the creation of Adam till now is about 6000 years. So if the world has been in existence for only 6000 years how then do you explain the dinosaur fossils which are millions of years old. The world is millions of years old and Adam and Eve weren't the first to exist on it.
