Just a Minute


The popular American TV news program 60 Minutes recently aired a segment about a remarkably preserved dinosaur bone. The discerning viewer, however, would have noticed something missing. As the segment examined the soft tissue found in a T. rex thigh bone (including still-flexible blood vessels and red blood cells), the correspondent failed to mention the obvious: that the incredible preservation challenges the popular belief that dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago.

The staring-them-right-in-the-face contents of the bone support the creationist view that dinosaurs lived in recent times and co-existed with humans. The program acknowledged that the soft tissue should have dried out. But by not exploring how the soft tissue could have been preserved, 60 Minutes missed the real story.
