Proteins in Rock Trouble Old Earth Beliefs

Way up yonder in outcrops of Kakabeka Falls and Schreiber Beach in Ontario is some Gunflint chert, and secular geologists find it troubling. Not exactly the rock itself, but the microfossils found therein. More than that, they contain proteins that "shouldn't" be there. Maybe they'd relieve some stress by looking at the scenery, eh?


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.

Five outcrops, same layer, a couple of billion Darwin years, plenty of chemistry should be going on — and no appreciable changes between organisms then and now. They should really consider throwing out the old Earth ideas, since scientific evidence keeps piling up to refute that idea. In reality, the world was created recently: problem solved.
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 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.
