Soft Tissue Discovered in Tyrannosaurus Rex Fossils

The astonishing discovery of flexible soft tissues in the fossilized bones of a 68-million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex 1 has been upsetting for those committed to the “old earth” model of Darwinian evolution.   Under ordinary conditions, the body of any dead animal will predictably decay very rapidly, with microbes destroying any soft tissue left by insect scavengers within a matter of weeks.   If the carcass is rapidly buried by sediment, a requirement for fossilization, it would be protected from scavengers.  Furthermore, any rapid drying of the sediment could inhibit microbial growth and slow down degradation of the soft tissue.   However, how likely would it be for delicate blood vessels to remain intact, or tiny red blood cells?   Would collagen remain flexible, even stretchy, for 70 million years?   Dr. Mary Schweitzer published a follow-up study of her initial findings in 2007. 2   Amazingly, she found soft tissue in fossils was not rare: nearly half of their b
