Amazing Preservation Fails to Shock Evolutionists
The first question ought to be, how can such things survive hundreds of thousands or millions of years?
When the first dinosaur blood vessels, proteins and skin cells were discovered, many creationists thought the fix was in for the moyboys. It turned out, though, that evolutionists are like the man who thought he was dead. His doctor asked if dead men bleed. He said, “No, dead men don’t bleed.” The doctor proceeded to poke him and red blood started coming out. The man responded, “Well, I’ll be. I guess dead men do bleed.”
Evolutionists used to state adamantly that proteins, cells and DNA could not last for a million years, let alone ten thousand. Any biological material would become permineralized and turn to stone in short order. But when soft tissues started turning up fossils from the age of dinosaurs and earlier, they began saying, like the dead man, “Well, I’ll be. Soft tissue can last for tens and hundreds of millions of years.” Watch them do it right here.
Glowing Spider Eyes
Ancient, fossilized spiders still have weird and glowing eyes (Fox News). A spider found in shale is claimed to be 100 million years old, and yet the back of its eyeballs still reflect light. Live Science explains:
Spider fossils are rare, the researchers wrote in a paper published online Jan. 28 in the Journal of Systematic Paleontology. Their bodies are so soft that they typically decay entirely soon after death, leaving no trace unless they happen to end up trapped in amber. But 11 spiders from the Cretaceous period have turned up preserved in shale on the Korean Peninsula. And two of the fossils included the still-shiny traces of sparkling eyes.
Glowing retinas are found in many organisms. What causes the phenomenon? Cells in the retina contain reflective layers called tapetum lucidum, Science Direct explains. In other words, the spider eyes still glow because remnants of cellular proteins are still working. And this was found not in amber, but in shale, a rock where the soft tissues of a spider should “decay entirely soon after death.”
That’s not all. The Fox News story says that “the rocks where the spiders were found also contained the remnants of tiny fish and crustaceans.” Spiders do not typically live with fish and crustaceans, do they? Were the evolutionists ashamed to have said these rocks were 100 million years old? No; they were glad! Dead men do bleed.
“These spiders were doing things differently. … It’s nice to have exceptionally well-preserved features of internal anatomy like eye structure. It’s really not often you get something like that preserved in a fossil,” Selden said in his statement.
Retreating Ice Exposes Arctic Landscape Unseen for 120,000 Years (Live Science). As Arctic ice retreats, a long-preserved landscape is becoming visible once again. Evolutionists claim the ecosystem, including
tiny Arctic plants and mosses were last alive when the ice enveloped the land. As the ice melts, Pendleton said, it exposes this ancient, delicate vegetation. Wind and water destroy the long-lost plants within months, but if researchers can get to them first, they can use radiocarbon dating to determine the age of the vegetation. has been under the ice for 120,000 years.
Aren’t the researchers concerned that radiocarbon should all be gone by then? With a trick of storytelling, they stre-t-t-t-ch the timeline by 80,000 years:
They found that all of their samples were at least as old as the oldest age that radiocarbon dating can detect: 40,000 years. That’s a direct indication that the plants had been under ice for at least that long, the researchers reported Jan. 25 in the journal Nature Communications.
In short, what they measured gives a 40,000 year radiocarbon age (not necessarily the true age, because of assumptions in the method), but the ice cap was three times older than that, they claim. And yet many of the “delicate plants” were found in “growth position,” they say. To believe they are that old, they have to believe that the ice never moved or melted before now, even though they admit that the ice has grown and shrank over different time periods.
Keep poking the evolutionists and showing the blood. Maybe they will finally get the point that the evidence shows they are not physically dead, but just spiritually so.
