Dinosaur Biomolecules and the Iron-Toast Union

Believers in descent with modifications were aghast when Mary Schweitzer announced that soft tissues were found in dinosaur fossils. That is old news, but less old is the supercilious attempt to use iron as a preservative. Some fundamentalist evolutionists accepted that despite its glaring problems.

Another rescuing device was proposed that applied the Maillard reactions of toasted bread to dinosaur proteins, but that did not work. The secular science industry is toying with a new hope for their rebellion against the Creator. It combines the two rescuing devices.

Dinosaur soft tissues were found and evolutionists were aghast. They tried to explain it away with iron, then Maillard toast reactions. Now both.

Sure, why not? Since both of those ideas fail, mayhaps putting them together will make a complete answer. That'll be the day! However, like so many other explanations by advocates of deep time and evolution, devotees will pick it up and use it as ammunition against creationists — not understanding its weaknesses. Once again, the evidence indicates recent creation and a worldwide global Flood that buried the dinosaurs.
The puzzle persists after all these years. On the one hand, biochemists perform decay rate studies that show biochemicals cannot last a million years in the best of conditions. On the other hand, paleontologists keep finding biochemicals in fossil bones deemed tens of millions of years old. A new report again attempts to explain how those short-lived biomaterials might have “lived” far beyond their expected shelf lives.

NC State Ph.D. student, Landon Anderson, published in the journal Earth Science Reviews some biochemical reactions that either do, did, or could occur inside a buried carcass on its way to becoming a fossil. The report conveys the idea that the two most popular proposed preservation mechanisms don’t compete, but instead complement one another to possibly help preserve tissues for eons.

But soft! Methinks I detect the distinct aroma of maybe, perhaps, could be, scientists think, and other waffling as science. Normally, I like waffles, but not when presented with science. But I digress. To read the rest, journey to "Does Iron Toast Union Rescue Long Ages?"
