Michael Snyder The Truth March 7, 2014A fossil bed in China that is being called “Jurassic Park” has yielded perhaps the greatest dinosaur soft tissue discovery of all time.According to media reports, “nearly-complete skeletons” have been discovered that even include skin and feathers.The other two isotopes in comparison are more common than carbon-14 in the atmosphere but increase with the burning of fossil fuels making them less reliable for study (2); carbon-14 also increases, but its relative rarity means its increase is negligible. After this point, other Absolute Dating methods may be used.Today, the radiocarbon-14 dating method is used extensively in environmental sciences and in human sciences such as archaeology and anthropology.
Previously, it has been assumed that dinosaurs died out over 65 million years ago, so these new findings are astonishing and should have made international news.
But instead, we are now starting to find dinosaur soft tissue all over the place.
The following is an excerpt from a recent Daily Mail articleabout this new discovery in China…Fossils include complete or nearly-complete skeletons associated with preserved soft tissues such as feathers, fur, skin or even, in some of the salamanders, external gills.
Clark’s photos of the fossil will be released on the June 2017 issue of National Geographic.
