We’re all told constantly that dinosaurs evolved, lived and then went extinct many millions of years ago. God didn’t make dinosaurs-time plus chance plus chemical soup did…
The truth is that life-all life-is incredibly complex. It’s far too complex for evolution from non-life to be anything more than wishful thinking. And there is no, repeat no series of fossils anywhere showing creatures evolving into dinosaurs: dinosaurs were dinosaurs from the Beginning, just as God created them*. All evolutionists have is a few specimens which they claim are transitional, having some similar body structures to their alleged relatives. As I’ve asked before, do evolutionists expect to see five legs; two heads; plastic arms; no heart? Similar body structures are explained by having the same designer. You have to have faith to make these specimens into evidence for macro-evolution. If someone tells you there is such a series, go with them to the museum and see just how convincing their “evidence” is. If we (and the dinosaurs) did not evolve, the only other option is that we were created by an incredible being who therefore is our Lord and Master.
The story of evolution requires over two billion years of alleged time. In contrast Scripture makes it clear that all animals were created fully formed. This story-the one I’m convinced of-does not require any millions of years at all. I here share samples of three articles discussing the presence of soft tissues found in fossilized dinosaur remains and those of other creatures. How do blood vessels and collagen survive for at least sixty-five million years, when the dinosaurs allegedly became extinct? This is a question evolutionists are working hard to find an answer to, but let’s face it: a sixty-five million year long experiment to prove the theory would not be easy, and if it failed, another sixty-five million year-long experiment would be necessary.
1 PUBLISHED REPORTS OF ORIGINAL SOFT TISSUE FOSSILS, by Brian Thomas, M.S. (now PH. D.)
Soft tissues that are essentially unaltered should not exist in fossils that are millions of years old. This is because, in accordance with the Law of Entropy, the biochemicals in such tissues spontaneously break down within only thousands of years after death.
The chart (link at the end of this paragraph) is a summary of technical and other reports describing original soft tissue fossils that came from a variety of unique fossil sites around the world. Many of the reports relate how researchers used special equipment to detect original biochemicals. Other than having partly broken down, the tissues had not been chemically altered since they were captured or buried. Each report therefore stands as a witness testifying to the young age—just thousands of years, rather than millions—of fossils and their associated rock layers.

2 MORE T.REX SOFT TISSUES, by BRIAN THOMAS, PH.D. | THURSDAY, DECEMBER 05, 2019 (link at end of sample 2)
The latest fossil biochemistry paper, published in Scientific Reports, describes “blood vessel structures” recovered from inside a T. rex femur. This is the same femur in which the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology featured collagen fibers, protein remnants, and possible DNA signatures back in 1997. Since then, debate has raged among experts. On one hand, fossil experts keep reporting more biochemicals in all kinds of fossils. On the other hand, protein experts keep confirming that biochemicals cannot possibly last millions of years. This new report attempts to bridge those two parties.
The Scientific Reports paper focused on mechanisms that might help protein last for 65 million years—the length of time that secular scientists insist the T. rex bone rested in the earth. Such mechanisms bear a big burden. Assuming normal temperatures, proteins and other biomolecules fall apart after only thousands of years. The study authors themselves indicate the debate still rages. They wrote,The identification of still-soft tissues and cellular structures in a suite of Mesozoic fossils and claims of endogenous proteins preserved within these materials is controversial because it challenges both conventional wisdom and theoretical kinetics, which preclude the persistence of proteins over geological time scales.
Fact: Fossils found around the globe and throughout the earth’s rock layers have original biochemicals like collagen and chitin.
Fact: Biochemicals don’t last millions of years.
Fact?: These fossils are at least 65 million years old.
The first fact receives more confirmation with each new report of soft tissue structures like this one in Scientific Reports. We maintain a list of such reports that has now exceeded 100.

3 SCIENTIST STUMPED BY ACTUAL DINOSAUR SKIN, BY Brian Thomas, PH. D., MONDAY, MAY 20, 2013
Being the first ever to examine a dinosaur fossil long buried in sedimentary rock is thrilling enough for a field researcher. But a team working in Canada found an exhilarating bonus on a hadrosaur fossil fragment—it had actual skin still attached.
They found the duck-bill dinosaur fossil near Grand Prairie, Alberta. University of Regina physicist Mauricio Barbi operates state-of-the art synchrotron equipment that can detect and identify chemical signatures without destroying samples. He plans to use the technology to investigate the special fossil and its skin. He told Canadian Light Source (CLS), which houses the synchrotron device, “As we excavated the fossil, I thought that we were looking at a skin impression. Then I noticed a piece came off and I realized this is not ordinary—this is real skin.” Scientist Stumped by Actual Dinosaur Skin | The Institute for Creation Research (icr.org)
