Dating dinosaur bones
(Let’s be clear: evolutionists don’t rely on carbon-14 to support their theories about an old earth. Consequently, the carbon-14 finds its way into our body and builds up in our bones over time.
They rely on.) Carbon-14 forms in the upper atmosphere when cosmic rays bounce into nitrogen atoms and dislodge some of their protons. Plants absorb the carbon-14 in the air through the standard photosynthesis process. When a creature dies, it stops taking in new carbon-14. Therefore, after enough time has passed, all of the carbon-14 atoms in a sample will have decayed into other elements and there will be no traces of the element left.
They can measure the ratios of the elements in creatures that have died “Having established the world-wide uniformity of the radiocarbon assay at the present time, it seems a logical assumption that this would have been true in ancient times.” [Science Magazine, Vol. (In fact, we know the ratios are changing now, and have been over time.) A THEORY’S PREDICTION IS INCORRECT, BUT IT CAN’T BE THE THEORY THAT’S WRONG…
Since modern scientists “know” dinosaurs died millions of years ago, In this particular case, the dinosaurs were dated to between 10,000 and 25,000 years old.
greater than 6000 years), then that would mean that the assumptions used are invalid — further research and data is needed to refine the method.
It’s important to recognize this main idea: both Christians and evolutionists disagree with the results of the tests on dinosaur bones. They have vested interests in one or both of those things.
Carbon-14 dating works by measuring the amount of carbon-14 interspersed with regular carbon-12 in a sample of organic matter.
These types of fossil are called trace fossils or ichnofossils, as opposed to body fossils.
Some fossils are biochemical and are called chemofossils or biosignatures.
The half-life of carbon-14 is 5,730 years, which means it takes that long for half of any initial amount amount of carbon-14 to decay.
