Back in 2005, soft tissue from a dinosaur (T-Rex) was discovered within the fossil was a controversial subject because soft tissue degrades quickly so the media and other scientists tried to discredit the discovery which has been verified a few years later! Now we see reporting from these same secular science magazines with their poker faces as more soft tissue has been discovered.
Science Daily reports…
“Two ink sacs from 160-million-year-old giant cephalopod fossils discovered two years ago in England contain the pigment melanin, and that it is essentially identical to the melanin found in the ink sac of a modern-day cuttlefish.”
How does an organic ink sac from a fossilized Jurassic cephalopod which is identical from a living cuttlefish of today tell you anything about evolution? When organic material discovered within the T-Rex fossil was finally verified, this was supposed to be rare according to skeptics. They use the same argument for the ink sac, they admit it’s “exceptional” soft tissue preservation and shows no signs of evolution which they say constitutes evidence for evolution or in other words, circular reasoning.
And because of the evolutionary time frame, we see the illogical happening as stated by the press release…
“Generally animal tissue, made up mostly of protein, degrades quickly. Over the course of millions of years all that is likely to be found from an animal is skeletal remains or an impression of the shape of the animal in surrounding rock. Scientists can learn much about an animal by its bones and impressions, but without organic matter they are left with many unanswered questions.”
“But melanin is an exception. Though organic, it is highly resilient to degradation over the course of vast amounts of time.”
Wouldn’t you like to see a test of this ridiculous assumption in a lab on how melanin could withstand degradation for many millions of years? For creationism, this is a tremendous discovery and quite interesting to say the least along with verifying a young earth which is the Biblical account! A young earth of course is inline with discoveries of soft tissue and how it degrades quickly. A claim that organic material that shows no evolution can last 160 million years because of the belief of slow and gradual through a mindless process is circular reasoning and therefore not scientific!
