saying that he wasn't a creationist but posing his entire schooling in microscopy as an exercise in theology is somewhat explanatory.

Why is this "Soft tissue" (which first had to be chemically EXTRACTED from its hard rock matrix, a sign that it isn't of Cretaceous age.

The Creationist logic is awfully thin in presenting any supportive evidence. It appears to me that, should you wish to "prove" that a Triceratops or a T rex "soft tissue" is really young, its up to
your "scientists" to do so.

It seems that the entire Creationist argument is'Well, its not real hard rock so the tissue MUST be young"
kinda dim logic there gunga

UCal as well as Elsevier have specific "referee" requuirements for peer reviewing. Apparently he submitted the article under not completely honorable intentions
1Hes not qualified s a paleontologist
2He has no training or experience in any kind of geochronology
3He submitted as a principal scientist and UCal has a requirement on that .
4I hve no idea under which department he made the submittal of his "article"

Even Mike Behe got his department ok to publish his ID dreck. Lehigh University merely dis-associated the biochem department from Behes papers and basically said
"While we think all his opinions are bat ****, we support his right to have em"

The man is a completele fraud. He managed to publish a few papers about topics not even close related to paleontology.

The name of his book is hilarious.

Seriously this people only ruin the dignity of science.

He he he. Turns out that he was given a "Masters" from an unaccredited college that offered "Science degrees" in CREATIONISM.
No conflict there.

Im amazed at how gunga goes out and plops these kinds of crappy clips into the "record" and doesn't ever seem to do a good QA on the authors or the subjects. Gung is famous for this, that's why Ive always felt that hes just dickin round nd really doesn't maintain this **** s a belief (Unlike Quahog who really does say his Anti-science Credo)

What seemed to me very funy was the fact that some creationst groupies are claiming that they are suffering "DARWINISM INQUISITION"
