On the alleged capability to preserve organic matter for millions of years.

> [edited: link added ]

It is well known how Mary Schweitzer and Evolutionist team defend at any cost the thesis  which claims the organic matter found in Dino bones is truly tens of millions old,.....


 Dinosaur Shocker
    Probing a 68-million-year-old T. rex, Mary Schweitzer stumbled upon astonishing signs of life that may radically change our view of the ancient beasts

Reported in Stiliyanov's blog:

......with a not clear experiment where they demonstrated that iron coming from hemoglobin can help to preserve organic tissue for at least two years. From those two years (about 730 days)  they extrapolated that iron can preserve organic matter for well 68 millions of years.

But there are some problems. HUGE problems. For some of them you can read in the following articles respectively at creation.com and at the site of the ICR:

"......News reports around the world tell of red-blood-cell-like and collagen-like structures found in 75 million year-old dinosaur bones long stored in the British Museum.........(..............)............Third, the experimenter destroyed red blood cells to release their trapped iron, then bathed bird-bone tissues with the purified and concentrated soup. But these new Nature Communications results clearly showed blood cell shapes still intact. How could iron preserve bone tissues if it never escaped red blood cells in the first place? Plus, what natural process in the supposed Jurassic world could have mimicked the elaborate blending, filtering, concentrating, and bathing procedures used in the lab? Such laboratory finagling doesn't accurately represent natural environments........."

"......................Smelly bones
Schweitzer recounts how, after that first discovery, she noticed that a T. rex skeleton (from Hell Creek, Montana) had a distinctly cadaverous odour. When she mentioned this to long-time paleontologist Jack Horner, he said ‘Oh yeah, all Hell Creek bones smell.’
Astonishing, isn’t it? So ingrained is the notion among paleontologists that dinosaur bones must be millions of years old that the ‘smell of death’ didn’t even register with them—despite the evidence being right under their noses.
.......(.............).........Evangelical Christian?
The article author wrote that Schweitzer is an ‘evangelical Christian’.1 However, he is only one of many non-Christians to invoke a professing Christian as a ‘useful idiot’ to undermine the Christian faith.

  1. I remember in the "jurassic park" movie, how they supposedly struggled to find viable DNA from soft tissue, only getting it from mosquitoes in lumps of amber, because it was all "dry bones".
