Discovery of Partially Fossilized Dinosaur Horn Prompts Creationism Debate
Pacific Justice Institute declined to make Armitage available for an interview because of the pending lawsuit, but Anderson, the co-author of the triceratops horn paper, spoke to me about the fossil discovery and its implications. While the Acta Histochemica paper doesnâ€™t make any claim on the age of the fossil, Anderson said the preservation of soft tissueâ€”absent a convincing explanationâ€”suggests the horn is far less than 65 million years old, the approximate date that would be assigned to the triceratops based on a standard interpretation of the Hell Creek Formation.
This isnâ€™t the first time scientists have found soft tissue inside a dinosaur fossil. In 2005, North Carolina State University researcher Mary Schweitzer famously reported her discovery of â€śtransparent, flexible, hollow blood vesselsâ€ť inside a Tyrannosaurus rex leg bone. Others have found soft tissue inside fossils from a mosasaur...
If you do a Google search on "dinosaur soft tissue" and narrow the time-span to a month or even a week you will be shocked at how much play this news is getting. The above link is very informative. I suggest you read it before commenting. And Scientific establishment is about to get a bellyache because of this lawsuit.
