Dinosaurs: An Argument for Creation

If you’ve checked out the Mission Page on God Made Dirt you know I believe that God gave us everything we need to be our happiest, healthiest selves when He created the Earth.

Key words being : when He CREATED the Earth

However these days many people don’t believe the Earth was created by God but instead that it evolved over millions, or even billions, of years.   Almost ten years ago a discovery was made involving dinosaur bones that serves as an excellent piece of evidence for the creationist argument.  Unfortunately many people still don’t know about it or don’t understand the full significance behind the discovery.

creation-ministries-international_14970_imageCreation Ministries International published an excellent article on the topic, written by Calvin Smith, last year. Click here to read it.  If you’re pressed for time, here are the highlights 🙂

  • In 2005, Dr. Mary Schweitzer discovered transparent, branching flexible blood vessels and red blood cells alongside soft and stretchy ligaments from a supposedly “68 million-year-old” T.rex bone.
  • Many evolutionists now admit the existence of such dinosaur soft tissue and organic material in well over thirty specimen.  This includes the presence of collagen, hemoglobin, osteocalcin, actin, and tubulin
  • According to a report in the science journal The Biochemist, even if collagen were stored at 0 degrees Celsius, it would not be expected to last even three million years… let alone 68 million years.
  • dino cartoonCould it be that the Earth isn’t nearly as old as evolutionists like to believe?  The presence of these organic materials supports the biblical timescale of creation very well.
  • In response to this discovery, many evolutionists have given declared the organic material could be:
    • Bio-film (a product of more recent bacterial action)
    • Preserved by Iron: Dr. Schweitzer found that the presence of hemoglobin can increase tissue stability more than 200-fold, from approximately 3 days to more than 2 years
  • However these explanations are not complete:
    • Bio-film still doesn’t explain the presence of proteins and DNA found in the organic materials
    • The study done on iron was not representative of conditions found outside of a laboratory… and a preservation of 2 years is still a long way from explaining a preservation of 68 million years.
  • Believing proteins could last for tens of millions of years takes enormous faith.  The discovery of organic material in dinosaur bones is a strong argument for Creation as well as a shorter timescale for the age of the Earth.
