Dinosaur Soft Tissue Explanation Fantasy

Darwin's Cheerleaders are having a laugh at creationists' expense because they believe that a valid "explanation" for the soft tissue in dinosaur fossils has been found. Here we go again (sigh). Someone thinks there is a wonderful proof of evolution, and runs screaming down the street without examining the evidence.

Dinosaur soft tissue preservation explained? No, just excuses and "maybes". The evidence inadvertently supports the global Flood of Genesis!

Carelessness gets scientists into trouble, and fundamentalist evolutionists get arrogant with incomplete, careless "findings" and pronouncements. In this example of the apparently never-ending parade of preposterous presentations, scientists are making excuses giving explanations for the soft tissues and red blood cells found in dinosaur fossils. Their bias showed early on, because they "knew" that no soft tissues could last for "millions of years", so they did not look for it. (This is reminiscent of the "junk DNA" fiasco, because evolutionary scientists assumed that because they could not find a use for some DNA, it must be leftover evolutionary junk, and were humiliated later.) Creationists are more content to examine the evidence. So, what's up with the "explanation"?
The discoverer of soft tissue in dinosaur bone now has a new explanation for its preservation – but does it really answer the obvious question?
According to Live Science, Mary Schweitzer’s “controversial T. rex soft tissue find” has been “finally explained.”  The answer is: iron.  The iron in hemoglobin acts like a formaldehyde, preserving the delicate proteins and stretchy blood vessels.  But does it really preserve it for up to 145 million years?
press release from North Carolina State describes the hypothesis coming from theory and from experiment.  In theory, iron atoms must be guarded against in cells because of their reactive potential.  After death, though, reactive iron becomes a guardian of preservation, because it forms cross-links with proteins, preventing them from decay.  (This process also makes soft tissue hard to detect, Schweitzer says.)  The experimental part involved soaking recently-killed ostrich bone in water and in blood.  The water-soaked bone decayed into a goopy mess in less than a week.  Because of iron in hemoglobin, the blood-soaked soft tissues remained “recognizable” for two years at room temperature, retaining their basic structure.
The press release is tentative, saying iron “may be the key” to preservation, “may play a role” in preserving ancient tissues, and, in Schweitzer’s words, “may be both the mechanism for preservation and the reason why we’ve had problems finding and analyzing proteins that are preserved.”
The article does not deny the authenticity of the soft tissue, but only tries to offer an explanation for the unexpected preservation.
