The more secular humanist scientists search for the evidence of where the material world originated, the more quandaries they bring upon themselves. One such puzzle for them is the discovery in recent years of remnants of soft tissue in fossils which were supposed to be millions of years old.
As of last year, there have been over 100 articles published in secular technical journals discussing these soft tissue fossil finds. The problem they all are faced with is this; why are the tissues still there when artificial decay experiments show that soft tissue can last at most, thousands of years, not millions of years?
Since for the secularist it is unthinkable that their multimillion-year timeline might be wrong, they are feverishly searching for a plausible explanation for soft tissue finds in animal fossils. Though many theories have been proposed, none satisfies all the criteria, and the refutations of these theories are plenteous.
Just using your own non-scientific common sense, what do you suppose the prospects are for us to find some soft tissue still preserved from a buffalo that Buffalo Bill shot out on the Montana prairie a hundred fifty years ago? Possible, but not very probable. Now, what if we add ten hundred thousand years to that, and then come looking for remaining soft tissue? How about if we multiply that last period by ten times again?
The prospects for the dating of creation and the flood of Noah which facilitated the formation of all those fossils appears to have far more to commend it to common sense, and to the weight of evidence than the unfathomable concepts of an almost infinitely old world. You can trust your Bible on all matters it speaks of, whether in the spiritual realm or the physical world.
