"Because in Cyberspace, no one can hear you scream."

A "70 million year old" T-Rex skeleton was found by researchers and apparently when they cracked open the thigh bone open (to get it into the helicopter) they found soft tissue, including blood vessels, bone cells and possibly even some blood cells.
"They are transparent, they are flexible," said Mary Higby Schweitzer of North Carolina State University and Montana State University, who conducted the study. She said the vessels were flexible and in some cases their contents could be squeezed out.
"The microstructures that look like cells are preserved in every way," added Schweitzer, whose findings were published in the journal Science.
"Preservation of this extent, where you still have this flexibility and transparency, has never been seen in a dinosaur before." Feathers, hair and fossilized egg contents yes, but not truly soft tissue.
What I don't get is how soft tissue can last for "70 million years." Although we officially do not have a million years of recorded human history (as I even doubt this planet is over a million years old) wouldn't some bacteria have feasted on this decaying tissue by now?
While I'm on my soap box it seems silly to me that any tissue of anything could remain after a million years. Either these scientists are overly excited by the chance of making "Jurassic Park" a reality or have just missed one of the biggest flaws to their "faith" (and atheism is a faith because you would need a lot of it after seeing how it breaks at least one law of science).
What law am I referring too? The Law of Entropy also known as The Second Law of Thermodynamics which states that:
"...in all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves the system, the potential energy of the state will always be less than that of the initial state."
While I am not a scientist it is clear to me that this is basically stating that whether it be your automobile or an organism, everything goes from order to chaos (as in it all decays). After "70 million years" these T-Rex cells shouldn't even exist (at least not in a warm area as it appears that it wasn't even a frozen T-Rex).
Although the First Law of Thermodynamics alone would prove the needed existence of a God (as it is impossible for the universe to have existed forever or to create itself) their are other reasons why I doubt evolution as one can see here, here or here.
But since I am human and have been known to make mistakes if anyone out there would like to convince this former atheist (as well as collect $250,000) of the "proofs of evolution" then my ear is wide open and ready to listen to anyone with "evidence."
