"NORTH SLOPE DINOSAUR FOSSILS

While we might presume that remains more than 65
million years old would have turned to "solid rock"
long ago, that's not true for all dinosaur bones
found in northern Alaska. So far, all recovered
bones are highly mineralized and discolored by
iron oxide, but they still have differences. Some
are relatively light and porous while others are
heavy and dense. The differences relate to the
amounts of minerals, notably silica, which have
replaced what was once living cell matter while
additionally filling in bone pores. In some
specimens, bone cells and pores have been
mostly replaced or filled in by minerals. In
others, just cell walls and little else have
been mineralized leaving many open pores.
Thus, bones with less mineral replacement are
light and more porous than bones with lots of
mineral replacement."
........

"DNA STUDIES AND NORTH SLOPE DINOSAUR BONES

So far, no DNA has been found in dinosaur bones of the
North Slope. When they were first discovered in the
1980s, and before they were studied, the relatively light
weight of several bones caused speculation that they
might contain a lot of the original bone tissue from the
once-living dinosaur. Since then, the result of studies
have not supported this idea. Instead, they have shown
that the bones are highly mineralized with none yet
proven to contain recoverable dinosaur DNA or
anything else from the living dinosaur.


You definition of "Fresh" must have come from here:
www.christiananswers.net
or perhaps here:
www.answersingenesis.org

No. They were found quite a few years ago. They are mineralized with silicone and were really light, so people thought that they might be "fresh" I just wanted to see what people thought.

Oh, I see that the Lord of the Rocks is already on the case!

LOL. I thought you were specifically asking me?

I'll back off. I have no goal to talk people out of religion or their faith.

Well, whether someone claims a dinosaur bone is 65 million or 65 hundred years old will not change my mind one bit about God. The age of a dinosaur has nothing to do my or anyone elses salvation. It is merely to either credit or discredit the bible.

It would be easier to take you seriously if you would change your avatar. LOL

Who is that anyway? Is that really Kirk?
