Dinosaur Soft Tissue

This is Ken Ham, author of the books The Dinosaurs of Eden and D is for Dinosaur.


According to evolutionary ideas, dinosaurs went extinct around 65 million years ago. But we continue to find evidence that dinosaurs lived much more recently than that!

In 2005, Dr. Mary Schweitzer made the first popular discovery of soft tissue in a dinosaur bone. She found red blood cells and blood vessels in the femur of a supposedly 65-million-year-old T-rex. Now, we know soft tissue chemically breaks down—it can’t last for millions of years!

This discovery doesn’t fit with the evolutionary story. But it does support the biblical account of creation. Starting with Genesis, we know God created everything—including dinosaurs—in six days, just thousands of years ago.
