Fossilized Brain May Give Paleontologists Headache

Fossilized Brain May Give Paleontologists Headache

by Brian Thomas, M.S. *

Who has ever heard of a fossilized brain? Few would expect such a discovery, yet it looks like that's what researchers found inside a Stone Age skull from Norway. If so, it would confirm a published creation prediction and challenge many evolutionary timescales.

Ten archaeologists have been digging out fossilized human remains from a fjordside location called Brunstad, an area that encompasses two Stone Age human encampments.1 The scientists' findings include Norway's oldest unburned skeletal remains and a skull remnant with an unexpected attachment.

University of Oslo archaeologist and Stone Age expert Gaute Reitan told the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation NRK, "Inside [the skull] is something rather grey and clay-like. You can just think for yourself what that may be."1

The team thinks they have uncovered brains inside the partially buried skull. If further research verifies this, how could brains last that long?

These guys are really embarassing.

They are the Christian equivalent of the Glow-bull warming crowd.

And yes, I am a Christian. I just think God created those laws of physics for a reason and that reason was NOT to fool us.

You evolutionists never proved that the Earth is round either.

In the ongoing slagfest of “Evo” v. “Crevo”, this line from the article is pitiful, “The team thinks they have uncovered brains inside the partially buried skull. If further research verifies this, how could brains last that long?”

The short answer is similarly to how dinosaur DNA survived in bugs found in amber, and let’s not forget the actual, perfectly preserved human brains found in skulls in Warm Mineral Springs, FL.

Battle’s on!

I have never seen a fish evolve into a man so that proves all animals must came from Noah’s Ark, together, then they all hiked and swam the oceans to the far corners of the earth.

Evolution is not scientifically based like Creation is, Creation is based on key facts like missing bones.

The Stone Age encampment where the brains were found is dated to 8,000 years ago. We’re supposed to ask “how could brains last that long?” about 8,000 years but be fine with the idea that they could last 4,500 years?

When will you realize that ICR’s purpose is not to explain but to deceive?

Exactly! Can you imagine the world we might be living in if secular scientists didn't always get it wrong? We might have ways to treat people for diabetes, or prevent them from getting polio. We might have managed to get off this rock and visit other planets. We might even have a way to discuss all these things without having to be in the same room.

Oh wait...

Probably just as well. All it takes is for one person to come up with a bad date and it automatically ruins all the dates anyone else ever had or ever will have, so there's virtually no chance it would be any good if you got one.

Oh, I know. And if you’re of the “all one race” or “everyone should be treated equally” mindset, that should be no more offensive than Joe’s pic.

But you know that the world has a double standard.

Regarding my post #12, please note I also mentioned the Warm Mineral Springs brains which were actual tissue - not fossilized in any way.

I only mentioned the Amber DNA as a humorous pull on your chain. I'll remember the sarcasm and/or irony tag next time.

Were you aware of the DNA work done on the Kennowick Man bones? Successful results for $400 when done by the local officials. Fedzilla bureau-scientist spent some $10,000 and got invalid results.

Most scientists believe in God. You don't know that the ones who made the Norwegian discovery don't also. The question, when you talk about "secular science," isn't whether the scientist believes in God, but whether they only seek conclusions that validate their beliefs--as ICR does--or just do science. By the way, this is what Salk had to say about evolution: "Of course evolution is real. DNA mutates, and that makes evolution one of the most powerful forces in nature. But who set evolution into motion? Can't God have done that? I can't stand it when the ideologues take over on something like this."

Psyops. Whoever controls the terms controls the debate. Using "secular" as if it was synonymous with "atheist" is a gambit to create polarization, in support of false dichotomies.
