You can just erase evolution off the whiteboard because of soft tissue in dinosaur bones.” Armitage was hired as a microscopist to manage CSUN’s electron and confocal microscope suite in 2010.
His findings seconded groundbreaking discoveries by noted molecular paleontologist Mary Schweitzer, who triggered an earthquake in the world of paleontology when she published about soft tissue in dinosaur bones in 2005.
(Schweitzer subsequently postulated that iron is responsible for preserving the soft tissue.) Armitage’s February 2013 study was published in the peer-reviewed , a journal of cell and tissue research. A biology professor had come into his office and said, “We are not going to tolerate your religion in this department.” Armitage fought back.
He had published some 30 articles in scientific journals about his specialty.
A graduate of Liberty University, Armitage adheres to the “young earth” view, against the majority of scientists who say our planet is 5 billion years old.
“Soft tissue in dinosaur bones destroys ‘deep time.’ Dinosaur bones cannot be old if they’re full of soft tissue,” Armitage said in a You Tube video. If you don’t have deep time, you don’t have evolution.Now California State University at Northridge has paid Armitage a six-figure sum to settle his wrongful termination suit based on religious discrimination.While the university admits no wrongdoing, Armitage’s attorney said they feared losing a protracted lawsuit because of a “smoking gun” email that backed the plaintiff’s case.By Chad Dou — CSUN scientist Mark Armitage found soft tissue in a dinosaur bone, a discovery that throws significant doubt on evolution.Then, two weeks after publishing his findings, he was fired.
