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 doesnât make any claim on the age of the fossil, Anderson said the preservation of soft tissueâabsent a convincing explanationâsuggests 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 isnât 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 âtransparent, flexible, hollow blood vesselsâ 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.
