And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were completed, and all their hosts...And the water prevailed more and more upon the earth, so that all the high mountains everywhere under the heavens were covered.

"WHY DOES MARY SCHWEITZER GET TO KEEP HER JOB AND I DON'T?"
This new presentation focuses on the recently launched CRS initiative to collect and quantify soft tissues in dinosaur bones. During excavation of a fossil site at the Hell Creek Formation, Glendive, Montana in May 2012, the largest Triceratops horridus supraorbital horn ever recovered from Glendive was jacketed and transported to Mark Armitage, MS and Kevin Anderson, PhD for microscopic analysis.
The horn was discovered to be highly vascular, filled with moist matrix and featured both permineralized and unfossilized material. Subsequent to decalcification with EDTA, soft and hard remains were thin sectioned and examined by light and electron microscopy. Permineralized vascular vessels which remained after decalcification exhibited internal spherical structures consistent with size and shape of blood cells. Soft tissues collected from deep within the horn yielded heavy populations of layers of osteocytes. Osteocytes featured delicate filopodia and internal structures consistent with nuclei and other organelles. Soft sheets of fibrillar bone examined under Scanning Electron microscopy were characterized by groupings of tightly aligned osteocytes, widely connected via filipodia with widths approaching 500nm.
Results of this study conform to previous soft tissue studies in ancient materials, such as Tyrannosaurus rex by Mary Schweitzer and others, strongly suggest that this is dinosaur tissue. Reaction to this discovery has been mixed.

In 1992, we changed our monthly flyer to an informative newsletter dealing with science topics relevant to the creation/evolution controversy. We changed the newsletter's name to Creation in the Crossfire for the May 1992 issue. Articles from past issues can be retrieved by clicking on the Article Archive button.
