Ink Hasn't Changed Over Millions Of Years.

According to evolutionary reckoning the ink's been dry for 160 million years—but scientists from the University of Virginia Charlottesville have for the first time confirmed pigment in two fossilized ink sacs from cuttlefish-like animals, a new study says.

The ancient ink's similarity to modern squid ink suggests this defensive weapon hasn't evolved much. In fact, no surprise to biblical creationists, the ink hasn’t changed at all.

The brownish-black fossil pigment—a type of melanin called eumelanin—is widespread in the animal kingdom, for example in bird feathers, squid ink, and human hair and skin. The substance has various functions, including protection from the sun and camouflage.

Found recently in the floor of a long-gone sea in the United Kingdom, the ‘Jurassic’ ink sacs escaped decomposition, providing scientists with "exceptional" soft tissue specimens, the study says.

Soft tissue specimens like this and others like T-Rex soft tissue discovered seven years ago best fits with the biblical time-line of thousands of years not billions. It is difficult to conceive soft tissue surviving over millions of years.

Using several different techniques, scientist were able to confirm that melanin had survived intact in the ink sacs. They then compared the chemical properties of the ‘Jurassic’ pigment with those of ink from living common cuttlefish, which release clouds of ink to confuse predators.

The [ancient] ink is indistinguishable from modern ink.
