Radiometric dating and carbon dating of fossils Sex na chate
Diamonds supposedly formed even further back in the past than dinosaurs —over a billion years ago.There is even less reason to expect to find carbon-14 in them, but it has been found.So, you might ask, why is this article about carbon-14 dating of dinosaurs?Wouldn’t the dinosaurs be too old for carbon-14 dating to work on them? That statement would be true if the dinosaurs were really millions of years old.Carbon-14’s half-life is too short to measure dates over a million years ago.In fact, if the entire earth were solid carbon-14, in a million years so much would have decayed that there would not be even a single atom of carbon-14 left.
Carbon-14 decays with a half-life of about 5,730 years.However, the abstract of the Miller presentation was removed from the website for the conference. Double-click on the box for Wednesday, Room Leo 2, BG02.You will see presentation 5 is missing between 4 and 6.The age for all these fossils was found to be less than 50,000 years1.This is not predicted by conventional evolutionary theory; and other discoveries have been made concerning dinosaurs which also are not predicted by evolutionary theory such as the discovery of soft tissue in bones that are not or are only partially fossilized.
No, the University of Georgia had extended the maximum limit up over 50,000 years, and the ages were all well below this. After all, even though these ages are much younger than conventional ages, many creationists believe life on earth to be much younger than even the reported carbon-14 ages of these dinosaur fossils.
