Dragons are dinosaurs.
But there are other problems. In 1981, scientists identified unfossilized dinosaur bones which had been found in Alaska 20 years earlier. Philip J. Currie (an evolutionist) wrote about this and some similar finds, “An even more spectacular example was found on the North Shore of Alaska, where many thousands of bones lack any significant degree of permineralization. The bones look and feel like old cow bones, and the discoverers of the site did not report it for twenty years because they assumed they were bison, not dinosaur, bones.” As Dr. Margaret Helder has said, “How these bones could have remained in fresh condition for 70 million years is a perplexing question. One thing is certain: they were not preserved by cold. Everyone recognizes that the climate in these regions was much warmer during the time when the dinosaurs lived.”
In 1990, Scientists from the University of Montana found T. rex bones that were not totally fossilized and even found what appeared to be blood cells in them. Dr. Mary Schweitzer said, “It was exactly like looking at a slice of modern bone. But, of course, I couldn’t believe it. … The bones, after all, are 65 million years old. How could blood cells survive that long?” How indeed?
And then in 2005, they found an even greater discovery. Science Daily website said (March 25, 2005): “Dr. Mary Schweitzer . . . has succeeded in isolating soft tissue from the femur of a 68-million-year-old dinosaur. Not only is the tissue largely intact, it’s still transparent and pliable, and microscopic interior structures resembling blood vessels and even cells are still present.” As Dr. David Menton said, “It certainly taxes one’s imagination to believe that soft tissue and cells could remain so relatively fresh in appearance for the tens of millions of years of supposed evolutionary history.” Wouldn’t that be a hit for the meat industry if we could figure out how to preserve meat for so long?<<<
I am aware that the apparent very large distances between us and the farthest galaxies, given the current apparent speed of light, poses difficulties for a 6,000 year old earth, but nothing like as great as the difficulty posed for materialists by the origin of life and of the specific and complex information on DNA. I may address the issue of distant starlight and radio decay in another post.
I do appreciate how shocking it is to be faced with evidence that turns your world upside down. But denial is not a great strategy. God did in fact create the cosmos, the world and living creatures (including dinosaurs) some 6,000 years ago, He did promise a Saviour by MANY prophecies which Jesus fulfilled (proving a God outside of time who knew the end from the beginning) and He is coming again to judge the living and the dead. And the offer of free pardon, adoption into God's family and eternal joy in heaven through Christ is still open to all.
