“And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”
Canadian paleontologists have reported the biggest ever tyrannosaurus fossil. The skeleton is 13 meters long, which is 42.7 feet, and was discovered in Saskatchewan.
Just because, as creationists, we deny the dating methods used by deep-time scientists, listeners must not conclude that we are not in admiration of the sterling work performed by so many of these paleontologists. For example, this skeleton, which has been nicknamed Scotty, was first discovered in 1991. The painstaking removal of the fossil bones from its containing rock took a decade! After this, the cleaning, presenting and reporting of the bones has taken nearly 20 more years, but Scotty will finally be on display in May 2019 at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.
The dinosaur is apparently the oldest T. Rex found, and, by this, they are not referring to an alleged evolutionary age. As one scientist said, “It would have had the most candles on its last birthday cake.”
With all the fascinating work done in recovering this dinosaur, I noticed one thing missing from the report. They did not comment on the creature’s coverage with feathers! Perhaps they didn’t see any! This follows recent news reports that have suggested those who picture the creature without feathers are ignorant.
God made these magnificent creatures on Day Six, and God gave scientists skills that they could develop to unearth their remains.
Prayer: Thank You, Father, for the dedication of so many scientists, even when they do not honor You with their words. Amen.
