Without a thicker atmosphere it is almost impossible to explain the size of dinosaurs and it IS impossible to explain pterosaurs being able to fly. There are a number of people who believe in a thicker atmosphere theory but for some odd reason it is not well accepted. This has nothing to do with Hovind's nonsense, it's just an interesting thing that often gets overlooked in regards to paleobiology.
Actually a thicker atmosphere ie as in more air pressure wouldn't help. Now a greater oxygen content would and it has been speculated that the oxygen content in the time of dinosaurs approached 40%.
