TNRTB Classic: Ancient Collagen Explained

A few days ago, I explained why the recovery of cuttlefish fossils containing the organic material chitin fails to support the young-earth model.

The discovery of 35-million-year-old chitin is not the first time paleontologists have unearthed soft-tissue remnants associated with fossils. Researchers have identified the remnants of blood vessels, blood cells, and collagen associated with dinosaur fossils. Young-earth creationists also claim these discoveries as support for their view.

Last summer, I published an article describing how collagen could survive for 65 million years. Check out the article below more reasons why the persistence of organic materials for millions of years is easily explained and doesn’t challenge the ancient dates of these and other fossils.
