Blood found inside a T-Rex bone from Alberta, Canada

[by Dean Smith] An article in an English newspaper, The Guardian, is reporting scientists have found blood inside a T-Rex bone fragment. What is particularly interesting is that these tiny scraps of bone from the Dinosaur Park formation in Alberta, Canada were in poor condition. They had been kicking around for about 100 years, and few months ago the fossils were sent to the Museum of Natural History in London, England.

He had actually been studying human cells and decided to take a look at the dinosaur bones as well.

Did finding soft tissue in a dinosaur fossil result in a scientist’s firing?

UPDATED: Pacific Justice Institute (PJI) has announced it is taking on the case of Mark Armitage, a scientist and professor at California State University Northridge (CSUN), who PJI alleges was fired for his religious beliefs. Pacific Justice is a non-profit organization dedicated to defending liberty and religious freedom. According to its news release, Pacific Justice alleges that Mark was dismissed from CSUN because he published an article in February 2013 in a peer-reviewed scientific journal showing dinosaur bones contained non-fossilized organic material. The finding indirectly called into question claims by evolutionists that dinosaurs are millions of years old. Mark was part of dig at the Hell Creek formation in Montana when he discovered what is considered the largest triceratops horn ever found at this dig. The triceratops was a massive animal that according to evolutionists existed 60 million years ago. With features like a modern rhino, it had a massive head with three horns and a large frill. Mark was using a high-powered electron microscope to study the fossil, when he discovered soft tissue inside …

Problems with the theory of evolution mount as more soft tissue discovered in fossilized bones

“How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?” — Sherlock Holmes speaking to evolutionists, err… Watson The fossils are supposed to be 130 million years old, but they apparently never received the latest evolutionary memo. I am talking about a massive dinosaur find in China, that some have likened to Jurassic Park because of the incredible amount of fossils discovered. Throw in the fact they are finding soft tissue in the fossils and visions of cloning dinosaurs and yet another Jurassic Park sequel quickly flood your mind. 

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.
