The squid that stared down evolutionists

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 …

Tests confirm it’s dinosaur blood!

After running tests, scientists from North Carolina State University (NCSU) have confirmed that non-fossilized organic material found in a dinosaur bone thought to be nearly 80 million years old are in fact blood vessels from that dinosaur and not another form of contaminate. The discovery of the soft material was made by a researcher from the University of Texas studying the demineralized bone of a 30-foot Hydrosaur found in Montana. Using high-resolution mass spectroscopy, the researcher noticed the soft tissue. Initially, it was believed the bone was contaminated in the lab. The university announced its findings in a news release and as well an article published in the November 23 edition of Journal of Proteome Research. This finding has caused serious problems for evolutionists because it is evidence these bones are not millions of years old as previously thought. How could there still be soft tissue in bones thought to be nearly a hundred million years old? Despite reports of organic material being found in fossilized bones around the world (here and here), many evolutionists …
