Scientists Set Maximum Lifetime for Ancient DNA
February 19, 2021
Any DNA found older than this upper limit will cause huge problems for the evolutionary dating scheme.
57,000 Years Is Too Old for a Young Puppy
December 26, 2020
Inflated age is not the only questionable claim about a frozen wolf pup found buried in permafrost.
Ice Age Bear Found Intact in Melting Permafrost
September 16, 2020
They say this bear, with soft tissue, organs, soft nose and all, died almost 40,000 years ago. Is that credible?
Surprising Fossils Astonish Evolutionists
December 3, 2019
When fossils have to be millions of years old, evolutionists can't believe their eyes.
Puppies in Permafrost Stun Scientists
April 1, 2016
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"
September 1, 2015
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
March 5, 2014
The media are shocked that a virus resurrected from 32,000-year-old permafrost can still actively invade amoebas.
Longevity of DNA Estimated
July 18, 2013
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?
June 27, 2013
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?
February 20, 2012
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.
