Response Article
This article (Pristine ammonite and bivalve fossils (Talk.Origins)) is a response to a rebuttal of a creationist claim published by Talk.Origins Archive under the title Index to Creationist Claims.

Claim CC373:

Mud springs near Swindon, Wiltshire, England produce fossils, supposedly about 165 million years old, of remarkable preservation. Some bivalves still have their original organic ligaments, and ammonites are iridescent and still have their original shells of aragonite, a metastable form of calcium carbonate.


CreationWiki response:

The only part of this challenged by Talk Origins is the reference to original organic ligaments. However, what is confusing is that Dr. Hollingworth is quoted in both sources as saying opposite things. Unfortunately there is no way of checking the original source of either quote. The fact that Talk Origins' quote is more recent than AiG's suggests that AiG's quote may be out of date.
