Creation Science Collagen Research Affirms Genesis Flood Timeline

The hands at the Darwin Ranch, up yonder past Stinking Lake and through Deception Pass, get a mite complacent. When observed evidence is against them, they employ rescuing devices by the wagon train-load. However, the problem of dinosaur soft tissues is the goat at their tea party.

Creationists teamed up to conduct research on bones and collagen. The results support the biblical timeline and are sure to be problematic for secularists.

Members of the Institute for Creation Research and the Creation Research Society teamed up to do some research on bones. Using new techniques, collagen was shown to decay faster than scientists previously thought. This fits quite well with the Genesis Flood timeline, but is going to cause further difficulty for old earth proponents.
Collagen is a tough, stringy protein that holds bone together like the steel belts in tires. Secular scientists struggle to explain why so many different techniques have found positive detections of collagen in fossil bones. At the heart of the scientists’ struggle lies collagen’s relatively short shelf life. Prior studies accurately measured collagen content, but more precisely knowing collagen’s decay rate would set a sharper outside age limit for fossils that still contain it.

New techniques for Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) could improve this level of precision. As part of my recent Ph.D. research, I applied FTIR to hundreds of artificially decayed bone samples.
