Does carbon dating work dinosaurs
In the 1970’s, similar ages were gathered for other materials presumed to be very old, such as coal and sabre-toothed tiger remains.
Note that the results don’t really tell us anything except that there is some quantity of carbon-14 in the bones.
However, scientists are consistently finding 14c everywhere it shouldn't be.
As reported in 2011 in the journal PLo S One, in an allegedly 80-million year old mosasaur.
Of course we're hoping that now that we've corrected the material below, that this is solid A work!
* Six Problems with the Contamination Explanation: (See the 6th point below for why collagen itself cannot be contaminated with modern carbon and for the Nature 2017 paper explaining that microbes like cyanobacteria in fossils get their carbon not from the atmosphere but from their bone substrate, meaning that they cannot supply a younger date than a dinosaur fossil, because they date the same as that fossil!
This The theory predicts that the test results should say that the bones are at least 50,000 years old.
Paul Giem himself, graded the information presented below. He gave the original text (available here) a grade of A minus.But the differences arise because of the of the two groups. They also have a different, but significant vested interest: their fear of a personal God who will judge them into eternity. As a side-note, it’s often remarked that carbon-14 dating is “corrected” using tree-ring dating, which makes it accurate out to many tens of thousands of years.Christians believe the history of the earth to be as stated in Genesis which is God’s direct revelation to us. The museum curator from whose museum the dinosaur bone samples were taken was outraged. Scientists who believe the creation account of Genesis, Chapter 1 are still scientists even if their conclusions differ from the “majority” opinion. Antichristian scientists are not neutral, as they’d have you believe. To understand what it means to “correct” the carbon-14 age using tree-ring methods, take a look at , a site by practicing medical doctor Sean Pitman.The Radiocarbon field itself now widely acknowledges, and tries almost desperately to discount, that specimens supposedly millions and billions of years old will yield maximum carbon-14 ages of only thousands of years!* Carbon 14 in Dinosaurs at Singapore's American Geophysical Conference: On how to date a dinosaur, Real Science Radio's Bob Enyart interviews Hugh Miller, a member of the international scientific team that presented at the 2012 AGU geophysical conference in Singapore, the carbon dating results from five respected laboratories around the world of bones from ten dinosaurs (from the Gobi Desert in China, from Europe, Alaska, Texas, and Montana). Yet each of these dinosaurs had plenty of radiocarbon (as expected in that virtually every relevant peer-reviewed paper on the topic confirms the presence of endogenous soft tissue in fossils; see Dinosaur Soft Tissue.com).
