Dating fossils and rocks dvd
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.This question will be dealt with in a later section of this article.So if an object contained 1,000 carbon-14 atoms, after 5,730 years it should contain approximately half that many, or 500 carbon-14 atoms.There is one other pertinent point to be made about carbon-14 dating, however.Dinosaurs supposedly died out 65 million years ago. Carbon-14 dating was recently performed on dinosaur fossils,1 and the results were presented at the Western Geophysics Meeting in Singapore, August 2012, a gathering of approximately two thousand scientists.1 The carbon-14 dating involved precautions against contamination.Several tests were done by the University of Georgia using accelerator mass spectrometry.Compare this with Abstract.pdf, which does include presentation 5.
If young organic material became mixed with the dinosaur material that was carbon-14 dated, then the younger material would skew the result to a younger age.
Accessed 2013 Jul 2" href="#footnote2_ijmdi2o" Both the carbon-14 dating results and the discovery of soft tissue in incompletely fossilized dinosaur bones share the common theme of being indicators of much younger ages for dinosaurs than evolution claims.
Compared to the conventional theory of dinosaurs’ being at minimum 65 million years old, the time it would take soft tissue to degrade and the Each of the two thousand meeting participants was given a disc which included the abstract of the carbon-14 dating report.
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.But, if they were not that old, merely thousands of years old, then carbon-14 dating applied to dinosaur fossils might detect some carbon-14 atoms. These findings about dinosaur fossils are just a piece of the evidence indicating assumed ages are perhaps mistaken.
