From The Great Alaskan Dinosaur Adventure book
There is still much work and research that needs to be done with the bones that we found in Alaska. One project being completed is a total chemical analysis of the bones. We will be looking for any original biomolecules that might remain in them. Another is the description and publication of the large mandible that we discovered. the bones have also raised questions among creationists as to their depositional history. Did the dinosaurs that left these deposits die during Noah’s flood, or is it possible they may have lived after the flood? How did some bones become petrified while others have very little mineral content in them at all? When did the bones become frozen and how long have they been that way? These and other problems will need to be addressed in the future.
Scientific research is healthy as it helps us search for answers as we seek to defend our faith (I Peter 3:15). If we can find numerous biomolecules in the Alaskan bones, it may help us to show that these bones can’t realistically be 70 million years old. For instance, scientists from the University of Montana were surprised to find what might be the chemical remains of blood cells in the bones of a Tyrannosaurus rex. Even the scientists admit the cells should have long ago disintegrated. The process of biochemical decay starts soon after death. Imagining how these molecules could stay preserved for millions and millions of years is difficult.
