Mark Armitage, a trained scientist, lab technician and Professor, discovered soft tissue in a triceratops horn. This is amazing because the specimen is supposed to more than 68 millions years old, except it can’t be that old, as soft tissue cannot survive millions of years.
If you knew anything Dr. Meyers, about the microscopy of osteocytes – living osteocytes – (and we are not talking about epithelial cells) you would know that delicate ultrastructure – and I am talking fine filipodia approaching 500nm in width, decay WITHIN DAYS of the death of an organism. We microscopists have to use quick acting preservatives and process bone tissues immediately ON ICE to preserve the kinds of structures you can see on the Triceratops osteocytes in my paper:

Who is Mark Armitage?
Mark H. Armitage earned a BS in Education from Liberty University and an MS in Biology (parasitology), under Richard Lumsden (Ph.D. Rice and Dean of Tulane University’s graduate program) at the Institute for Creation Research in San Diego, CA. He later graduated Ed.S. in Science Education from Liberty University and is a doctoral candidate there.
Until recently, Mark served as the Manager for the Electron and Confocal Microscopy Suite in the Biology Department at California State University Northridge. Mark was suddenly terminated by the Biology Department when his discovery of soft tissues in Triceratops horn was published in Acta Histochemica. You would think that they would promote him and give him millions of dollars in grants for making such an astounding discovery. However, perhaps this clearly demonstrates the pro-evolution stance of the California State University of Northridge.
Why can’t soft tissue survive millions of years? Because they breakdown very quickly. Refer to quotes from scientists here: the theory of evolution is a theory.
