But, for 65 million years …

I don’t know if the argument has changed, I just find that to believe that there could be viable (soft) tissue after 65 (or longer) million years just beyond credibility. IMHO.

As you might have surmised, I’m a believer in the creation account per the Bible. Six days and all that. So, for the most part all other arguments are thrown my way in vain.

And, I guess, I will spend eternity in Heaven with my Lord, commiserating with the angles about my lack of faith in evolution.

Good discussion though.

No one said it was "viable", just that it was preserved "soft tissue" ~ that is, protein bundles.

I seriously doubt it's going to get up and walk down to the nearest singles bar looking for a date or anything.

The DNA thing is recent ~ initially the researchers didn't think they'd find any.

Now, a question for you, how could you doubt God's capacity for marvelous leaps across time and space.

Here we've gone and joked about dinosaurs that "taste like chicken" for decades, and now we find out they probably do.

That's definitely a conversation with our Creator. It's kind of like Handel's Hallelujah Chorus ~ he took a piece of the Bible translated to English and made incredible music for it. No doubt God heard that music and in the ancient distant past made sure the inspired Word would ring true to the Chorus thousands of years in the future.

Sometimes I think Creationists don't think these things out far enough ~
