In the year 2000, what was thought to be the oldest T-Rex fossil on record was found in Montana.  It was named “B. Rex” in honor of the man who discovered it.  This fossil hit the headlines when soft tissue was accidentally discovered inside the dinosaur bone. 

This feature with Brian Thomas, science writer with the Insitute for Creation Research, looks at a recent solution that tries to resolve the conflict between the apparent age of the fossil (68 million years) and the existence of soft tissue which can’t last more than 30,000 years.

Mr. Thomas’s article from ICR’s latest Acts and Facts Magazine entitled: Dinosaur Tissue: Biofilm or Blood Vessels? can be found here.
