In the past it has been proposed that dinosaur bones are millions or billions of years old...if
these dinosaur bones are "fossilized" they must be billions of years old right?  Maybe not.
Take a look at these items below that are definitely not prehistoric, yet these have all been

These kinds of items are at least partially fossilized even though they are not millions of
years old.  They simply needed to be exposed to the proper conditions for fossilization.  

What about dinosaur bones then?  
In March 2005 the journal of Science published an
article from Dr. Mary Schweitzer revealing strong evidence of ooey gooey
unfossilized tissue found inside a t-rex thigh bone...could that really be possible
if that dinosaur was 65 million years old?

What can these newly discovered evidences mean?  Here again we find the Bible was right
all along: Dinosaurs were created when all the other land animals were created on the 6th
day of Creation...they're not millions or billions of years old...but date several thousand
years (more to come).

Would you like to petrify your very own dinosaur bone?

Here's an experiment from our Coolest Wackiest Science that will show you how to make
your own fossils.

Supplies: 2 Sand Pails, Sand, Salt, Sponge, Water, and Scissors.

Instructions: Cut the sponges into shapes like bones, teeth, and dinosaur eggs. Now fill a
sand bucket up halfway with sand. Set your shapes on top of the sand and pour in enough
sand to cover the shapes. Fill your other bucket ½ full with warm water and stir in salt until it
can’t hold anymore. It is “saturated” when you can’t mix in anymore salt. Now dump the salt
water into the bucket of sponges and set it somewhere to let the water evaporate. When all
the water has evaporated your sponge bones will be hard.

Explanation: The holes in the sponge trap the salt, mineralizing the sponge as it dries out.
Some fossils are made in a similar way called “petrifaction.” Petrifaction occurs when
mineral-rich water flows into and around an animal’s remains and as the water evaporates
the minerals harden replacing it and creating a fossil.
