Thanks Malcolm.

Also interesting in it is the following part:

The tissue was collagen, they reported in the journal Science, and it shared similarities with bird collagen — which makes sense, as modern birds evolved from theropod dinosaurs such as T. rex.

You should read more scientific articles and fewer religious websites masquerading as "science".

The collagen had to be demineralised. Dr Schweitzer (an evangelical Christian) et al showed a way soft tissues can be preserved as long as those fossils exist, by publising their research in peer-reviewed scientific journals. You should try to tell your creationist buddies how science is done.

Smiley faces
For some reason lots of creationists think that adding lots of smily faces somehow would enhance ridiculously crazy ideas. Wonder why? Trying to sell snake oil or what? Second hand car salesmen?

Edited by Pressie, : No reason given.
