Surprising Fossils Astonish Evolutionists

When fossils have to be millions of years old, evolutionists can't believe their eyes.

Puppies in Permafrost Stun Scientists

They say these dogs are 12,400 years old, but their organs and fur are intact, along with remains of their last meal.

Original Pigment Found in "Dinosaur Feathers"

If pigment in fossil feathers cannot last 150 million years, then the story about bird evolution from dinosaurs is wrong.

Giant Virus Rises from the Past

The media are shocked that a virus resurrected from 32,000-year-old permafrost can still actively invade amoebas.

Longevity of DNA Estimated

How long can DNA survive in a fossil? Claims of ancient DNA can be compared with a new estimate based on a crime scene.

Are These Horse Genes Really 700,000 Years Old?

News sites are celebrating a "spectacular" new record for fossil DNA, claiming horse genes found in permafrost are 700,000 years old, placing the common ancestor two million years earlier than thought.

Is This Plant Really 30,000 Years Old?

A plant said to be 30,000 years old has been brought to life in Russia. A team resurrected a fruit from a rodent burrow in Siberian permafrost, getting it to grow into a whole plant that produces viable seeds. This is now the oldest age claim, by an order of magnitude, for plant material made to live again. Other scientists are startled that plant material could remain viable for so long, since cells have to repair their DNA continually. Other botany news bring different problems to evolutionary theory.
