Like Mary Schweitzer, I believed completely in evolution, even though I was a Bible-believing Christian. After my scientific and medical education I thought the evidence was overwhelming. But a decade after graduation I was exposed to evidence that there was design in life that cannot be accounted for by chance or any other natural process. It took me a year or two to digest the facts. The truth is that science indicates there must be a designer. It was many more years before I realized that there was also a very credible case for a young earth, but I also saw that the evidence is ignored or suppressed and its advocates punished.

The presence of soft tissue in a T. rex bone is clear evidence that the geologic dating system is wrong by many orders of magnitude. To say this simply appeals to the data and does not "hijack" or "misrepresent" Mary Schweitzer's work or statements. It is too shocking for anyone trained in the ruling paradigm to even consider it, but Ladies and Gentlemen, those bones CANNOT be 65 million years old.
