"for example i doubt anyone before hell creek dinos would countenance the idea of soft tissue/blood spots lasting 65 mill yrs.i,ve no doubt that if they find dinos in the congo darwinism will adjust again because anything goes except darwinian dogma."
Pete, had you been at the Society of Vertebrate Palaeontology meeting this year in Las Vegas you might have seen a presentation which indicates the soft tissues found in the Hell Creek Tyrannosaur were not blood at all. I have a ref for this but can't be arsed to trawl the abstract book.
They are find dinosaurs in the Congo (birds are dinosaurs) ;-) If they were to find non-avian dinosaurs in the Congo I doubt there isn't a palaeontologist in the world that wouldn't be cock-a-hoop over the discovery, as it would answer the many questions we have regarding these animals. Of course, the survival of a non-avian dinosaur in no way runs counter to Darwinism - why would it?
All you have to do Pete is find a horse in the Solnholfen, a bony fish or a whale in the Burgess Shale, an elephant in the Hell Creek (I hope to be there digging dinos later in the year so hopefully I might find one) and you can challenge the robustness of evolutionary theory and be famous as the man who brought down Darwinism.
