A Bird, a Mushroom, and a Fly Fossilized Fast

Exceptional preservation of soft tissues required rapid fossilization. Did they really die a hundred million years ago?

Tick Talk: Mammal Blood Found in Amber

Can intact blood be preserved for 15 to 45 million years, give or take 50 million?

More Soft Tissue Found in Cretaceous Fossil Bird

Unrepentant over extreme falsification, evolutionary paleontologists are just taking it for granted that soft tissue can survive millions of years.

Geology Fail at India

Tiny insects debunk a widely-taught scenario about where India came from.

Proof of Dinosaur Feathers?

Opinions are swirling about an amazing piece of amber with enclosed feathers. Let's look at what is known so far.

Bird Wings Found in Amber

The modern appearance is empirical. The date is philosophical.

How the Dragon Got Its Beard

Scales are not feathers are not hair, but evolutionary tales get hairy sometimes.

O Beautiful for Amber Waves of Fossils

Striking examples of life encased in fossil tree sap open eyes on creation vs evolution.

Fossils that Defy Old Ages

Here are three things assumed to be old that look young. It's only the presumption of old age that forces the claims of millions of years.

So Where's the Evolution?

When you go looking for evolution and find stasis, has Darwin been falsified?

Fantastic Fossils Challenge Paradigms

A flood of amazing fossils from around the world has hit the news lines recently.

Amber Alert: New Discoveries in Old Sap

Even old pieces of amber in a museum drawer can reveal unexpected surprises.

Phenomenal Fossils

Recent fossil discoveries include some eye-openers and world records.

Flower in Amber Shows No Evolution

The details in a flower said to be 100 million years old look just like those in modern flowers.

DNA in Amber Doesn't Last Long

Claims of ancient DNA hundreds of thousands of years old may be false. No DNA was found in an insect encased in amber said to be 10,600 years old.

Pristine Wood Found in Diamond Crater

A kimberlite crater in Canada, said to be 53 million years old, yielded exquisitely preserved unfossilized wood.

Unevolved Arthropods Found in Amber

The new record holders look identical to those alive today.

Grebe Left Imaginary Dinosaur Feathers in Amber

“Dinosaur feathers” are all over the news again, thanks to a paper in Science revealing feathers in amber found in Canada. But whose feathers are they? Inferences from other sources, not from the amber, were brought into the interpretation, even though the discoverers admitted, “There is currently no way to refer the feathers in amber with certainty to either birds or the rare small theropods from the area.” And modern-looking feathers of diving birds like grebes were also found in the same amber, leading to numerous questions about what can rightly be inferred from the fossils themselves. No matter; most of the media loved the evolutionary implications and trotted out their headlines that feather evolution from dinosaur to bird has been proven.
