He eventually filed a lawsuit against California State University Northridge in Los Angeles County Superior Court against the board of trustees, alleging discrimination.
Ever wonder about evolution, and all those millions of years?
68 million years old) and a duckbill hadrosaur (approx. In both cases, the fossils had been buried in sandstone (which may help wick away destructive enzymes from the corpse) and the fossils were analyzed within a relatively short time after excavation, which minimized degradation from sudden exposure to a new set of environmental conditions.
After dissolving away the mineral portion of the bone with weak acid, various types of flexible structures were recovered.
Source: Schweitzer, et al., “Soft-Tissue Vessels and Cellular Preservation in Tyrannosaurus rex”, Young earth creationists have widely cited these findings as evidence that dinosaur fossils cannot really be millions of years old, and so the rock layers (radioactively dated to more than 65 million years of age) cannot really be millions of years old – and so, it is claimed, the whole old-earth dating edifice collapses.But of course if these dinosaurs are really “160 million years old”, that should be absolutely impossible.Needless to say, this shocking discovery is once again going to have paleontologists scrambling to find a way to prop up the popular myths that they have been promoting.Soft Tissue in Dinosaur Fossils: Evidence for a Young Earth?In an earlier article, “Evidences for a Young Earth”, I discussed a number of proposed physical evidences that the earth is only a few thousand years old, rather than billions of years old.
