Carbon dating cannot measure millions of years. It can
only be used to date recent things. So... can dinosaur fossils be carbon dated?
Dating Dinosaur Bones
Carbon dating is done by measuring the amount of
C14 in the object being dated. C14 lasts for about 100,000 years. After that all
the C14 in the object will be gone. So carbon dating can only be used on objects
that are significantly less than 100,000 years old.
In addition, more and
more variables are being identified that have reduced the reliability of carbon
dating. For example the initial conditions are not known, in particular the conditions
before the Great Flood. The diet of the animal being dated also effects the amount
C14 has been found in nearly every dinosaur bone that has been
tested (contamination has invalidated some tests). Most have been dated as being
less than 40,000 years old. This is positive proof that we (dinosaurs) lived recently,
not millions of years in the past. Some examples include:
- C14 was found
in ten dinosaur fossils. The report was presented at the 2012
AGU Conference. The dinosaur fossils came from locations around the world,
Alaska, Europe, Texas, Montana, and China.
- Carbon 14 was found
in a Mosasaur bone and reported in a 2011 PLoS One paper.
- An Acrocanthosaurus
fossil was C14 dated five times. It's age? The C14 says about 25,000 years old.
Triceratops was C14 dated three times and the C14 said it was about 33,000 years
- C14 was found in all 7 dinosaur fossils submitted for testing
there should be zero... that's ZERO... absolutely no C14 in anything older than
100,000 years old. But, there it is in dinosaurs bones. Other materials that are
supposed millions of years old, such as coal, have also been tested. They also
have C14 in them. Even diamonds, which scientists claim are billions of years
old, have C14 in them. This is a very young world!
The scientific evidence
is in. What I knew all along is based in fact. Us dinosaurs walked the earth very
