But How Old Are Them Hills?

"Evolutionist Mary H. Schweitzer of North Carolina State University has d iscovered flexible blood vessels inside the fossilized thighbone of a '68-70 million year old' Tyrannosaurus rex1 from the Hell Creek formation in eastern Montana. Further investigation revealed round microscopic structures that look to be cells inside the hollow vessels." In another recent discovery, a "microbiologist in California dissected a '25-to-40-million-year-old' Dominican stingless bee from amber. 4 Spores of bacteria were found inside the insect and actually grew when placed in the proper medium. Dr. Cano, the discoverer, took careful measures to avoid contamination. Analysis of the DNA extracted showed it was very much like the DNA found in bacteria growing in bees today."

Problems abound with these discoveries. Soft tissue is not supposed to last 70 million years. Dr. Schweitzer said, "I am quite aware that according to conventional wisdom and models of fossilization, these structures aren't supposed to be there, but there they are. I was pretty shocked." There are no good explanations as to how such a thing could happen. The logical solution is that the dinosaur is no where near 70 million years old. Also, the DNA of bees and bacteria is supposed to have evolved in 25-to-40 million years, but the ancient bees and bacteria were basically the same that we have today. Something is rotten in Denmark; that is, if Denmark is the new capital of the theory of evolution and the dating system that makes everything occur in millions of years. This may give new meaning to the saying--"as old as the hills."
