More Dinosaur Soft Tissue Finds in 2017

Evolutionist Dr. Mary Schweitzer shocked the world in 2005 when she discovered soft tissue, including blood vessels and red blood cells, in a supposedly millions-of-years-old T-rex femur. Hers was the first popular discovery of many to come. Soft tissue is now cropping up in a broad variety of fossils at a wide variety of “ages” (the dates evolutionary scientists assign to the fossils). Two such finds appeared in the news just this year.

80-Million-Year-Old Dinosaur Protein?

Scientists have been skeptical of Dr. Schweitzer’s original find, largely due to their evolutionary assumptions about the age of the fossils. One such scientist claimed, “Proteins decay in an orderly fashion. We can slow it down, but not by a lot.” To prove her find, Dr. Schweitzer performed her experiments again, changing the methodology so that “about the only thing that is the same [as the 2009 experiments] is the dinosaur.” And again the proteins confirmed that soft tissue is indeed being found in these fossils.

195-Million-Year-Old Dinosaur Protein?

Another study discovered what appear to be proteins in a supposedly 195-million-year-old Lufengosaurus (a long-necked herbivore). One scientist, who was not involved in the study, said,

To find proteins in a 195-million-year-old dinosaur fossil is a startling discovery. . . . It almost sounds too good to be true, but this team has used every method at their disposal to verify their discovery, and it seems to hold up.

Echoes of the Jurassic

Soft tissue and proteins in dinosaur fossils may be the most significant paleo discovery of the 21st century. Their presence argues strongly against the millions-of-years label that’s applied to them.

Did dinosaurs roam the earth 65 million years ago? This Echoes Of The Jurassic book and DVD pack shows new discoveries with evidence for creation and biblical accuracy of Genesis. Shop Now 

You can learn more about these remarkable finds in the brand-new DVD Echoes of the Jurassic. This eye-opening DVD, hosted by David Rives, features over a dozen Bible-believing scientists, including some of AiG’s own, who give a clear and concise understanding of both the science and the controversy surrounding the ages of these fossils. It’s a must-have for a creationist’s DVD library.

You can also bring home a copy of Dr. Kevin Anderson’s book Echoes of the Jurassic on this same topic. Both the DVD and book are available at our online store, individually or as a combo.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
