Yes, but since neither scenario fits in with the biblical version of animals being created only 7,000 years ago, then the point is moot. I believe in God, but I also can't ignore the physical evidence that man and animals have been around on this planet for a lot longer than what the bible says.
This was in the article: "...No one is saying yet that the DNA of a dinosaur could be reconstructed, as it was in the fictional "Jurassic Park" movies. DNA molecules are made up of long chains that degrade over time. Under the best circumstances, it's hard for DNA to survive thousands of years, let alone millions...."
I find this very unnerving and I wonder if scientists are indeed, crazy enough to try and clone a T-Rex if they had the proper tools.....
