Radiocarbon dating dinosaur fossils Mature dating video chat rooms
Other radioactive dating methods such as potassium/argon (K/Ar), rubidium/strontium (Rb/Sr), uranium/lead (U/Pb), thorium/lead (Th/Pb) and others that are based on decay of longer-lived isotopes often give ages in the millions or hundreds of millions of years for these fossils. However, in this talk I want to concentrate on reasons to believe the C14 dates are more accurate and that they give evidence that all life on earth is very young.
If decay rates were faster in the past, then even the C14 dates could be too old.
Carbon-14 should not exist in dinosaur bones, for it should have decayed away millions of years ago.
But that idea comes from the assumption that those creatures actually lived millions of years ago, an assumption now challenged by other scientists. Sad to report: Because so many paleontologists have so long assumed that all dinosaurs became extinct many million years old, the abstract of the report by the Paleochronology group was censured, deleted from the conference website because they did not like to consider such an apparently revolutionary discovery.
Carbon 14 is an isotope of carbon with two extra neutrons in the nucleus. The rate at which this happens varies to some extent.
Perhaps there was less C14 produced in the past, which would imply that even the relatively young C14 dates are too old. The C14/C12 ratio of living things and organic matter on the surface of the earth is about the same as in the atmosphere because carbon is constantly exchanged between living things and the atmosphere.
The carbon-14 dating research (C-14 or radiocarbon dating) was done over a period of years, with many samples from bones of several types, including: (Montana) Blatant Censor Instead of Correction If some scientist giving a lecture in a science conference makes a mistake, why not correct that mistake?
By measuring the C14/C12 ratio, one can get an estimate of the age for the date of a once living object or a fossil, assuming that the production of C14 and its decay rate have been constant in the past.So why did two chairmen of the 2012 Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting in Singapore delete one of the oral-presentation reports from their official website? The whole report was just deleted from public view, with no online explanation. The oral presentation by the Paleochronology group was given in 2012 but the total report was deleted by two chairmen of the conference. w=586" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-1800" src="https://livepterosaur.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/letter-from-asia-oceania-geosciences-society.jpg? w=676" alt="blunt explanation for censorship" srcset="https://livepterosaur.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/586w, https://livepterosaur.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/letter-from-asia-oceania-geosciences-society.jpg? The details given in the conference lecture itself included explanations for how contamination was avoided in the bone samples sent to the carbon-14 testing laboratory and much more.
