Which was a paper that said that scientists had found a dinosaur that was not permineralized. So some creationist had read this, and innocently, ignorantly, concluded that it was not mineralized.
I disagree on this one. The creationists who keep spreading this on the CMI website are Margaret Helder, PhD in Botany (PhD very important!) and Dr Carl Wieland (Medical Doctor).
My take is that Dr. Margaret Helder and Dr.Carl Wieland purposefully did not want to tell the truth. They wanted to deceive. That was their main objective.
If you read the original article in the Journal of Paleontology, it states:
The bones are stained a large red brown, but otherwise display little permineralisation, crushing or distortion.
It also talks of the fossil bones and even shows photographs of the fossil bones. Fossilized.
Margaret Helder and Carl Wieland are dishonest. Dishonesty is the only thing the professional creationists can offer.

Re: Ah yes, Rationalization is a Wonderful Scientific Tool

They were looking for the evidence in particular layers,....
Oh well, the relevant scientists do study "particular layers". The relevant scientists even study small parts of "particular layers". The relevant scientists even study small parts of small areas on "particular "layers". What's your problem with that?

... not in the entire geological column. Some people still have that wrong idea.
What on earth is "the entire geological column"? Never seen one of those in my life. Is that another of your creationist fantasies?

Re: Missing rings in dendrochronology
ThinAir Designs writes:
I understand that 2 rings per year is rather easy to detect (cellular difference as I follow it), but does anyone have any idea how one could detect missing rings?
Missing rings would make it appear as if a tree is younger than it actually is. I don't think that YEC's can use that one...

Re: Hugh Miller Debate

I've just accepted the opportunity to question/debate Hugh Miller live (online) with my family watching. I have stated that the only topic I'm interested in debating are the famous Carnegie Samples.

One of the best ways of making a name for yourself in the scientific community is to challenge a widely held scientific understanding with a strongly defended alternative theory. It is thus of considerable significance that the tens of thousands of geologists worldwide are virtually in complete agreement that the question of the earth's age has been answered: roughly 4.6 billion years.
The agreement is perhaps even more striking in the world of economic geology (oil and mineral exploration) where theories that lead to increased revenue always win, even if philosophically distasteful. Understanding the age of the earth and its layers plays a critical role in natural resource exploration, yet to our knowledge there is not a single oil or mining company anywhere in the world that uses a young-earth model to find or exploit new reserves. Old-earth models work. Young-earth models do not.
So, ask Hugh Miller to open up a mine using his young earth principles and using his hundreds of millions of dollars. I bet he's not going to do that, but he's just going to go on using other people's tithes to speak untruths about what is found in reality. He'll always go on about his unreality; no matter the reality of life.
Hey Hugh, put your money where your mouth is! Do exploration according to a YEC and spend billions on opening a mine according to YEC!
