This week Kevin talks to Christian microscopist Mark Armitage.  After discovering unfossilized dinosaur tissues, Armitage was suspiciously dismissed from his position as Manager for the Electron and Confocal Microscopy Suite at California State University, Northridge.  His scientific resume is impressive: Armitage has a BS in education, an MS in biology, and an Ed.S. in science education.  He has contributed micrographs and scholarly articles to scientific journals, and has taught at both Azusa Pacific University and CSUN.  Armitage contends that he was terminated not for his performance, but for his religious views, and is in the process of suing for wrongful termination.

What’s the big deal about soft dinosaur tissues?  The scientific establishment knows what is at stake with this issue, which is why other scientists (such as Mary Schweitzer) have offered feeble attempts to explain it away.  As Armitage puts it, “If these fossils, these bones scattered across the earth are full of soft tissues, then they have to be young.  And if they’re young, the deposits that they’re found in are young.  And if the deposits are young, then the earth is young.  And if the earth is young, suddenly Genesis becomes a believable account of real history, and that’s what the evolutionists are fearing.”  Kevin and Mark talk about the scientific implications of these discoveries, and why they are significant to the gospel.

Find out what Mark is up to at his blog, facebook, and youtube pages.  You can also look at his personal facebook and youtube accounts.  Consider supporting his GoFundMe campaign to help him run his personal microscopy lab, so that he can continue to research soft dinosaur tissues.
