Modern squid have a sack in their body full of ink that they will squirt out to distract their enemy if they are being pursued, and according to evolutionists, squid have allegedly had that same defence mechanism for over a hundred million years.
But Apologetics Press recently had an article about a unique drawing of a squid (see below):
It wasn’t necessarily a great depiction, but it is very unusual in one respect, as the drawing was created with ink found in a fossilized squid allegedly 150 million years old.
While the rest of the squid was fossilized in rock, the ink contained in a “soft and sloppy” ink sack was still usable.
According to Apologetics Press, Phil Wilby, the man who made the discovery, had a few things to say about this remarkable find:
“Normally you would find only the hard parts like the shell and bones fossilized but there are a handful of locations around the world where soft preservation of the muscle, guts and gills has taken place.”
“[It] can be dissected as if they are living animals, you can see muscle fibres and cells.”
“It is difficult to imagine how you can have something as soft and sloppy as an ink sac fossilized in three dimension, still black, and inside a rock that is 150 millions years old” preservation of the muscle, guts and gills has taken place.”
Apologetics Press noted that Wilby seems to have understated his discovery and instead of using the word ‘difficult’, he should have used the word ‘impossible.’
How could a soft, pliable ink sack be found in a fossil allegedly tens of millions of years old. I can’t even stop my pens from drying out after a year.
The discovery suggests that the fossil is simply not as old as evolutionists want us to believe.
Of course, they have been finding similar soft tissue, cartilage, blood vessels, in the fossils of dinosaurs over the past 17 years.
The first acknowledged discovery was made in 2004 by a Christian, North Carolina State University Paleontologist Mary Higby Schweitzer, inside the fossilized bone of a T. rex believed to be 65 million years old. READ: Schweitzer’s Dangerous Discovery
When she initially tried to report her findings, one evolutionary magazine actually refused to publish her article, stating it was impossible.
Today, they are finding soft tissue in fossils everywhere. In its 2009 article, discussing the discovery of the squid’s pliable ink sack, The Telegraph noted:
“Two years ago the team had set out to find a site first excavated in Victorian times where thousands of Jurassic fossils with preserved soft tissues were found.”
Notice how the article states they have discovered thousands of fossils with soft tissue, because one thing has always puzzled me?
There have literally been millions of fossils discovered over the decades, and evolutionists have been meticulously studying them for over a hundred years, and yet they only discovered soft tissue in this century.
I suspect soft tissue was seen in those fossils countless times before and for what ever reason, they chose to ignore it because it contradicted their evolutionary beliefs, or they simply refused to believe it, because their ideology said it was impossible.
And just in case you are wondering, fossilization is no indicator of age, because under the right circumstances, it can take place extremely fast. They have found instances of fossilized barbwire, pliers and even a clock.

Along this vein, I did a podcast a while back on the Bible’s explanation of what happened to the dinosaurs, if you are interested:
