Can carbon dating be used on dinosaur bones radioactive
By chad dou csun scientist mark armitage found soft tissue in a dinosaur bone a discovery that throws significant doubt on evolution then two weeks after publishing his findings he was fired.
A further example from a lava flow off the coast of hawaii shows similar discrepancies if dated with the carbon14 method the flow appears to be less than 17000 years old but dating with the potassium argon method gives dates of 160000 to 43 million years.
A fossil from classical latin fossilis literally obtained by digging is any preserved remains impression or trace of any onceliving thing from a past geological ageexamples include bones shells exoskeletons stone imprints of animals or microbes objects preserved in amber hair petrified wood oil coal and dna remnants the totality of fossils is known as the fossil.
How radiometric dating works in general radioactive elements decay gradually into other elements the original element is called the parent and the result of the decay process is called the daughter element.
The following material has been taken from a sheet entitled several faulty assumptions are used in all radiometric dating methodscarbon 14 is used for this example which was put out by dr hovind dr hovind r1 the atmospheric c14 is presently only 13 of the way to an equilibrium value which will be reached in 30000 years this nullifies the carbon.
65million year old t rex soft tissue the t rex photos above are actually old news whereas all the latest published journal papers through 2014 are listed chronologically belowas for these photos though north carolina state university discovered this original biological tissue from a supposedly 65millionyearold tyrannosaurus rex thighbone.
Scientist fired from university after discovering shocking dinosaur bones believed to be only 4000 years old tuesday august 05 2014 by jonathan benson staff writer.
Acquired trait a phenotypic characteristic acquired during growth and development that is not genetically based and therefore cannot be passed on to the next generation for example the large.
Dr hovind g1 the assumption that the geologic column is a base from which to calibrate the c14 dates is not wise g1with a halflife of only 5730 years carbon14 dating has nothing to do with dating the geological ages whether by sloppiness or gross ignorance dr hovind is confusing the carbon14 clock with other radiometric.
