It’s an incredible story, more so for evolutionists than creationists because scientists were able to identify organic molecules from soft tissue that supposedly died over 66 million years ago.
Back in December 2007, the remains of the animal which was discovered in 1999, was being displayed to the world as reported by National Geographic…
“The extraordinarily preserved hadrosaur, or duck-billed dino, still had much of its tissues and bones intact, encased in an envelope of skin. Research into the dinosaur’s remains may further scientists’ understanding of how the ancient creatures’ skin appeared and how quickly they moved, said team leader Phillip Manning of the University of Manchester, a National Geographic Expeditions Council grantee.”
“We’re looking at a three-dimensional skin envelope,” Manning said. “In many places it’s complete and intact—around the tail, arms, and legs and part of the body.”
Scientists excited the fossil still contained cell-like structures, which is also great news for creationists as well. It’s amazing to observe amino acid building blocks that once made up the proteins were still present in a fossil. What’s make this even more amazing, is the fact that evolutionists calculated this animal to be 66 million years old!
Derek Briggs, a Yale paleontologist who studies exceptionally-preserved fossils, told BBC news though it’s possible for cell-like structures to be found in the Dino fossil from Dakota, he doesn’t believe this is out of the norm and more fossils like this one being discovered wouldn’t be a surprise to him. Then goes on to say, some have been overlooked. Do you see a pattern here?
Derek Briggs presumption about Dinosaur fossils being millions of years old, but yet he explains this incredible discovery as though it was routine, but it is not. Like his fellow evolutionists, nobody predicted the remains to be so well preserved! Of course creationists would expect to find such fossils because we believe these dinosaur fossils are only thousands of years old.
So what testing are scientists avoiding? I’ll give you an obvious hint. Do scientists know how to degrade organic material? We still have anoxic bacteria around after all. This Dino fossil found in Dakota was in rock, not in an oxygen free environment like in an underwater cave. So this is certainly a testable hypothesis, then why aren’t they not conducting an experiment with other animals that simulates various plausible burial environments, and then measure the outcome by observing the decay rates?
It seems it’s not even on the table, because they are not even discussing such an idea which one would think would be important on understanding how the soft tissue contained in the dinosaur fossil was preserved after so many years! They are definitely avoiding such testing until perhaps they can come up with an explanation first, before the experiment possibly conflicts with their story on evolution.
