This is Ken Ham, inviting you to come to Northern Kentucky to see the Ark Encounter.


All this week we have been looking at soft tissue found in the fossil record. Now, the most popular example is collagen in the leg bone of a T. rex. It was supposedly 65 million years old. Of course, collagen can’t last nearly that long. But that is not the most amazing example of soft tissue in supposedly very old fossils.

Precambrian rocks are considered some of the oldest on earth. Well, not long ago scientists uncovered some tube-worm fossils in this rock layer. These fossils had proteins that were still flexible! And they were dated at 551 million years!

There is no way these proteins remained intact and flexible for half a billion years.

They are young!
