Well-preserved dinosaur



Link

Don't be put off by the name nodosaur. It is a kind of ankylosaurus.

The dinosaur is so well preserved that it “might have been walking around a couple of weeks ago,” Vinther says.


A couple of weeks ago? No.

But, thousands of years ago, instead of hundreds of millions of years ago? That would fit.

For all the wrong reasons, I found myself contemplating the reaction of homo sapiens around this planet if the researchers, in examining this specimen, found the remains of some Neanderthal in its gut.

Scientists who thought that dinosaurs lived hundreds of millions of years ago used to point to fossils, claiming that the replacement of the organic material with fossil minerals pointed to long spans of time necessary for this to take place (even though the nature of the question means their assertion was unverifiable). Now that field research has established that many fossils include a lot of biological remains that have not been replaced with minerals, that argument is not just undercut. If biological remains do not last for great spans of time, they point to more recent dating.

Dated human historical records go back more than the 6000+ years that some Christians mistakenly think the Bible teaches, so I do not believe the earth is younger than recorded history. But an age of hundreds of millions of years? No.
