Was reading Panda's Thumb yesterday. The article was about so-called "soft tissue" found attached to T-Rex bones. Creationists are crowing that this soft tissue proves a 6,000 year old earth, since there's no way soft tissue could last that long. A reasonable first try at a debunking, no doubt.

But to make that challenge, creationists have to ignore the fact that the bones were found in rocks that were dated by literally dozens of different chemical, radiometric and geological techniques, and found to be 70-million years old.

For me, the killer sentence of the PT write-up:
    If these people are able to ignore geology, chemistry and physics, why do they even bother to lie about biology?
