Antediluvian Amber

Mosquito in amber1

Remember that translucence amber "Jurassic Park" jewel twenty-two years ago that introduced the world to the retrieval of deep-time DNA sequences? That challenged scientists to aggressively enlist a new technology i.e., polymerase chain reaction (PCR), as well as contemporaneous research in their particular paleo-scientific predilections. This enthusiasm elicited discoveries that accommodated a long overdue remediation of evolutionist dogma. Unfortunately, this renaissance was all too soon extinguished by:

... The coerced suppression of the results by the evolutionary scientific community [that] has dissuaded anyone else from publishing dinosaur DNA research that is not in line with evolutionary dictates. Such self-censorship "chills" empirical research, which prevents the public reporting of observable DNA sequences in order to insulate the larger story of particles-to-people evolution from cross-examination...(Johnson, J. J. S., J. Tomkins and B. Thomas. 2009. Dinosaur DNA Research: Is the tale wagging the evidence? Acts & Facts. 38 (10): 4-6).
