Montana completely bans TikTok across the state

Montana became the first US state to completely ban the downloading of the social media app, TikTok, for all its citizens, Fox News reports. The government had previously banned TikTok from being downloaded on government phones over concerns that its Chinese parent company, ByteDance, is closely connected to the Chinese Communist Party. Fox News explains the reason behind the ban: “Some lawmakers, the FBI and officials at other agencies are concerned the video-sharing app, owned by the Chinese tech company ByteDance, could be used to allow the Chinese government to access information on American citizens or push pro-Beijing misinformation that could influence the public.

Extraordinary dinosaur find challenges evolution

Dinosaur bones from the Hell Creek formation in Montana cause a huge problem for evolutionists. Those digging at the site actually found fossilized dinosaur bones with soft tissue inside them (blood, blood vessels, cartilage). How could there be soft tissue in bones reportedly millions of years old? In 2004, palaeontologists uncovered a large T. Rex thigh bone (supposedly 69 million years old) at the Montana dig. They broke the bone for transport, revealing what looked like un-fossilized soft tissue.
