A theistic evolutionist on my video of Mark Armitage on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0mSdwwKeWU&lc=z120c33x0nemdv0ln22zipfosxyvgrr2t.1496722420271025) has been arguing against the discovery of soft tissues in dinosaurs and other fossils. I did some searching on the secular science of decomposition after death proving evolutionists are lying when they say soft tissue can last for hundreds of millions of years, due to iron fixing.
After death, though, iron is let free from its cage. It forms minuscule iron nanoparticles and also generates free radicals, which are highly reactive molecules thought to be involved in aging. "The free radicals cause proteins and cell membranes to tie in knots," Schweitzer said. "They basically act like formaldehyde."Formaldehyde, of course, preserves tissue. It works by linking up, or cross-linking, the amino acids that make up proteins, which makes those proteins more resistant to decay.

+Jeremy Auldaney I agree with you that quite often figures of speech are taken literally when reading the Bible i.e. Jesus referring to "four corners" and some saying that He thought the Earth was flat and square with corners, when "four corners" is in reference to the cardinal points. The term vault in Amos 9:6 is used to define the vastness of a "dome" covering the Earth. I agree with you that the use of the word "vault" in the Bible is definitely referring to the sky. But, you and I have a completely different understanding of what the sky is compared to that of the people when the Torah was being compiled. People back then believed that stars were lanterns that hung from a vaulted ceiling of a dome that covered the Earth. I personally don't believe that the Bible copied Pagan myths. Instead, we can see that the stories that are now in the Bible developed from earlier religious stories prior to Hebrew monotheism. For instance, the story of YHWH's birth and climb to power. YHWH is the son of EL the G-d of all Creation and Asherah the Goddess of Love and War. YHWH was brother to Baal. YHWH was known as the Devine Warrior, the G-d of War (inherited from His mother), the Lord of Heaven's Armies and His domain was the moon (another inheritance from His mother). Anyway, I don't consider the stories describing the lives of the G-ds up to the point were YHWH comes to power as Pagan myths. They are the foundation and origin of the Abrahamic religions. I find the pre-Torah/pre-Biblical accounts extremely interesting.
Right, Jesus created the earth he knows, and said it was round and hung on nothing. As for evolution and millions of years, there is a lot of evidence that evolution and long ages cannot be true from the facts of geology, paleontology, logic, forensics, and the Bible. Mary Schweitzer had to find an explanation in order to keep her job and not to appear to be an idiot in support of the establishment's consensus science. And she possibly solved the mystery for Mark Armitage, who has not solved the problem of preservation for about 5 thousand years for dinosaurs and other organisms, when soft tissue cannot last for more than a few years. Here is some research from secular science. "Decomposition begins several minutes after death, with a process called autolysis, or self-digestion. Soon after the heart stops beating, cells become deprived of oxygen, and their acidity increases as the toxic by-products of chemical reactions begin to accumulate inside them. Enzymes start to digest cell membranes and then leak out as the cells break down. This usually begins in the liver, which is enriched in enzymes, and in the brain, which has high water content; eventually, though, all other tissues and organs begin to break down in this way. Damaged blood cells spill out of broken vessels and, aided by gravity, settle in the capillaries and small veins, discolouring the skin. Most internal organs are devoid of microbes when we are alive. Soon after death, however, the immune system stops working, leaving them to spread throughout the body freely. This usually begins in the gut, at the junction between the small and large intestines. Left unchecked, our gut bacteria begin to digest the intestines, and then the surrounding tissues, from the inside out, using the chemical cocktail that leaks out of damaged cells as a food source. Then they invade the capillaries of the digestive system and lymph nodes, spreading first to the liver and spleen, then into the heart and brain. The variations may also be related to differences in the period of time that had elapsed since death. An earlier study of decomposing mice had revealed that although the animals’ microbiome changes dramatically after death, it does so in a consistent and measurable way, such that the researchers were able to estimate time of death to within 3 days of a nearly 2-month period. Once self-digestion is under way and bacteria have started to escape from the gastrointestinal tract, putrefaction begins. This is molecular death – the break down of soft tissues even further, into gases, liquids and salts. It is already under way at the earlier stages of decomposition, but really gets going when anaerobic bacteria get in on the act. (An anaerobic organism or anaerobe is any organism that does not require oxygen for growth.) These then feed on the body tissues, fermenting the sugars in them to produce gaseous by-products such as methane, hydrogen sulphide and ammonia, which accumulate within the body, inflating (or ‘bloating’) the abdomen and sometimes other body parts, too.
