Re: Tyrannosaurus collagen

Perhaps, but one can also doubt that the collagen is from T. rex for
purely scientific reasons. It is hard for some of the experts to accept
that any protein can persist over 68  million years, because this
apparently violates all the thermodynamic models.

Conversely, young earth creationists may want it to be T. rex protein
because they believe that this would prove that dinosaurs lived 6,000
years ago.
