Rock researchers highly regard Ontario's Gunflint chert for its fresh-looking microfossils. Long ago, the chert's microcrystalline quartz grains embedded microscopic single-celled creatures, including algae. A research team used new techniques to analyze the chemicals inside these fossil cells. They found protein remnants where they should no longer exist—given these rocks' vast age assignment.The article isn't all that long, so if it's not too much trouble, you can finish reading it by clicking on "Proteins in '2-Billion-Year-Old' Rock".

The team of French scientists partnered with UCLA ion-microprobe specialist Kevin McKeegan to publish in the online journal Nature Communications. Their investigation of tiny algae cells revealed remnants of original biochemistry despite their evolutionary age assignment of 1.88 billion years.
Microfossils and proteins in rock that is very old in Darwin years shouldn't be there. Now secular geologists have to come up with excuses as to how it was preserved for so long. In reality, the world was created recently: problem solved.
