News flash: Fossilized squid ink used in modern ink pen! Recently in Wiltshire, UK, a fossilized ink sac was removed from a squid fossil. The dried ink was ground up, mixed with an ammonia solution, and used to draw a picture of the extinct squid with its Latin name written underneath. How could a soft and sloppy ink sac fossilize? How could it still be black? Evolutionary dating puts it at 150 million years old. No protein structure could survive that long!
Obviously, this squid was not slowly covered with sediment over millions of years; it had to be covered recently, rapidly, and deeply in order to preserve such a find. The worldwide Flood of Noah’s time (about 4400 years ago) is a far better explanation for the preservation of this fossil squid ink.
And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
~ Genesis 6:13
