In a 50-foot thick layer of limestone, a new graveyard which contains 20,000 fossils has been found! The new discovery contains “dolphin-bodied ichthyosaurs”, reptiles, shellfish and many other ancient creatures. But what interesting is the preservation of these animals…
“The fossils are exceptionally well-preserved, with more than half of them completely intact, including soft tissues. Apparently they were protected across the ages by mats of microbes that rapidly sealed their bodies off from decay after death….Ninety percent of the fossils are bug-like creatures, such as crustaceans, millipedes and horseshoe crabs. Fish make up 4 percent, including the “living fossil” known as the coelacanth, which is still alive today nearly 250 million years later. Snails, bivalves (creatures including clams and oysters), squid-like belemnoids, nautilus-like ammonoids and other mollusks make up about 2 percent of the fossils.”
Once again, scientists find a fossil graveyard with indications of a rapid burial and exquisite preservation. There was an omission that they could have told the readers. Cretaceous which was thought to have been extinct 65 million years by the evolutionary time frame was found swimming in 1938 off the coast of South Africa. This raises some interesting questions and comments about how stretched-out chronology is becoming more common in evolution, this discovery suggests in the evolutionary time frame, coelacanths supposedly never left another fossil for 65 million years, and the soft tissues discovered in these fossils were never disturbed for 250 million years?
“A controversial finding that protein fragments can be recovered from dinosaur fossils has been replicated for the first time. “The claim has remained contentious, because proteins in tissue normally degrade quickly after an animal dies. On page 626, however, Schweitzer and colleagues report finding an even larger number of protein fragments from an 80-million-year-old fossil from a duck-billed dinosaur, or hadrosaur, known as Brachylophosaurus canadensis.”
Evolutionists are trying to distract such a conflict which exists within the evolutionary theory model on what the bones are really telling us. T-Rex was thought to be a rare exception when soft tissue was discovered, it became very controversial but that was only the beginning! Soft tissue found in these animals and future ones verifies creationism!
