Welcome to the home of "The Question Evolution Project". There is no truth in minerals-to-man evolution.

Dinosaurs Showing their True Colors?

Dinosaur models, movies, animatronics, and so on have been pretty much up to the imagination. Since they were "terrible lizards", we pretty much got lizard looks with greens and grays. Of course, that nasty frilled thing in the first Jurassic Park movie had some color. But how does anyone know? With developments in science and technology, we seem to be getting a mite closer.

Exceptionally well-preserved dinosaur remnants have been used to detect the critter's colors. This is possible because the materials used could not have lasted 120 million years. Sorry, Darwin.

A certain well-preserved dinosaur had enough pigments, proteins, and skin that gave scientists something to work with, and they have a pretty good idea how that bad boy was colored. Fortunately, their assigned age has to be wrong, else their source material would have been long destroyed. Interesting that they didn't try to date the proteins, though. Probably because they know it would show that Earth isn't as old as Darwinistas want, it was created much more recently.
Scientists mapped the color shading of a particularly well-preserved Chinese fossil—a Psittacosaurus [sit uh kuh SAWR us]—onto several three-dimensional, lifelike models of the dinosaur. They discovered that the extent of lighter areas on its belly matched that of today's animals that live in shaded areas, like beneath trees, as opposed to open plains. In the process, the researchers confirmed pigment and protein remnants in the fossil skin that should have decayed long ago if they were really millions of years old.

This pristine, small dinosaur fossil came from China's Jehol Biota, fossil beds to which secular geologists attach an age of over 120 million years based on when they believe some of its now-fossilized creatures were alive and evolving. But if that many years actually elapsed since sediments suddenly buried this entire animal, then how could it still contain the short-lived biochemicals that made its skin color darker on its back? How could it still have what appear to be remnants of the proteins that make its reptilian scales still bumpy?
