Tyrannosaurus Rex was an herbivore

I'm trying to imagine why they have a need to believe such a thing, in the face of obvious contradictory evidence staring them in the face, such as the teeth. There's nothing in the bible about T-Rexes one way or the other. It must be some sort of logical consequence of giant carnivores that contradicts the bible in some way, then.

Ergo, they must believe that dinosaurs lived during some period documented by the bible, or it wouldn't matter. Presumably the period between Adam and Eve and Noah. So... maybe they think that if there were giant carnivorous reptiles, there would be accounts of them stalking and killing humans in that section of the bible?

The problem I have is that this requires logical thinking about consequences. Not really the strong suit of these people. Maybe a skeptic of the Young Earth brought this up at some point? And this is the best they can come up with for an answer?
