Soft tissue in fossils
I found this: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2014/07/2...ur-fossil/
The article in itself is somewhat of a mess in itself, and if you want to torture yourself please take a look in the comment section.

So i am wondering on about then is how this actually works.
Edit: actually found out; apparently its the iron in the tissue that prevented the degeneration of the tissue and preserved it in extremly tight conditions that would prevent outside sources to distrupt the preservation:

Also, have anyone started to hear the whole soft tissue case as an argument against evolution?
Edit: Apparently this is a more spread argument than i thought...

Creationists completely ignore the fact that dinosaurs had more iron in their system and that's what preserved the soft tissue. They like to say that this is just another thing "proving" scientist don't know anything about fossils and the age of the earth.
And scientists didn't know about this. To find this out about the soft tissue, you basically have to destroy the fossil to find it and not too many people want to destroy a T-Rex fossil.
In an article I read about this, the woman (who is a christian) that discovered this said that creationists were taking her work out of context and that the fossil is still millions of years old.

RE: Soft tissue in fossils
Potholer54 has discussed creationist claims of soft tissue in dinosaurs. We've also discussed (to a lesser extent) claims that the researcher who found the tissue was fired because it disproved an old earth.
