Nonetheless, these Darwinist researchers have been the target of derision and even anger from secular scientists, many of whom have been in denialthe excitement that dinosaur soft tissue generated among young earth creationists, the response from evolutionary quarters has ranged from simply ignoring and overlooking this, the greatest discovery in the history of paleontology (as by the Smithosonian's dinosaur expert Brian Switek and Phys.org), to the dismissal of this research (as by the UK's Prof.Paul Braterman), to claims of outright falsehood (as by the atheist Talk Origins and Rational Wiki), and even anger and mocking (see rsr.org/soft-tissue-deniers).However, these putative ancient melanosomes might alternatively represent microorganismal residues, a conflicting interpretation compounded by a lack of unambiguous chemical data.

And Real Science Radio is thankful to by Moczydlowska, et al., from European researchers including from the Department of Earth Sciences, Palaeobiology at Uppsala University in Sweden, regarding a pre-Cambrian (layer) marine worm fossil allegedly 550 million years old: The Sabellidites organic body is preserved without permineralization.

7)) was observed in six of our eight dinosaur specimens (Supplementary Table 1).
Incredibly, none of the samples showed external indicators of exceptional preservation and this strongly suggests that the preservation of soft tissues and even proteins is a more common phenomenon than previously accepted.
