Dating dinosaur bones

Perhaps I am not familiar with the passage that clearly describes man walking amongst dinosaurs.

I hope this answers some YEC questions about why scientists do not date dinosaur bones with the Carbon 14 method.

We know how quickly C14 decays, and so it becomes possible to measure how long it has been since the plant or animal died." It seems what creationists fail to understand is dinosaur bones are permineralized or at the very least, partially permineralized, and therefore they no longer qualify as "once living material." Once the original material has been replaced with minerals it cannot be dated using the Carbon 14 method.

Even soft tissue has shown to be preserved with minerals such as iron rendering the method useless for dating.

The U-Pb method Simonetti and his Alberta colleagues employed uses a laser beam to sample minute particles of the fossil, which are then subjected to isotopic analysis using state-of-the-art instrumentation.

Simonetti and his colleagues believe that if the uranium-lead dating technique is confirmed in additional fossil samples, prevailing theories about the end of the dinosaurs will need to be revised.

Dinosaur bones have been dated, based on the half life of certain elements, at millions of years.

Jan 2, 2006. Let me get clear about your beliefs. How old do you believe the Earth is? And how do you debunk carbon dating? Dinosaur bones have been dated, based on the half life of certain elements, at millions of years. The earliest human remains found are nowhere near that old. Also, in the bible there is no.

From a dinosaur. “Ho-ho-ho, I am excite-e-e-e-d,” she chuckles. “I am, like, really excited.” After 68 million years in the ground, a Tyrannosaurus rex found in Montana was dug up, its leg bone was broken in pieces, and fragments were dissolved in acid in Schweitzer's laboratory at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.

Feb 16, 2011. Simonetti and colleagues from the University of Alberta used a U-Pb uranium-lead dating technique to analyze a fossilized dinosaur bone discovered in New Mexico. In a paper in the prestigious journal Geology, the researchers discuss their method and reveal that it determined that the femur bone from a.

Scientists combine several well-tested techniques to find out the ages of fossils. The most important are Relative Dating, in which fossils and layers of rock are placed in order from older to younger, and Radiometric Dating, which allows the actual ages of certain types of rock to be calculated. Relative Dating. Fossils are.

Creationists bring up Carbon 14 dating of dinosaur bones all the time. This shows a lack of basic understanding of how the method is used and what material it can be used to date. Carbon 14 is used to date things that were once living and in equilibrium with the atmosphere. Here is a brief explanation of how the method.

Nov 10, 2016. You might think dating dinosaurs would be an easy task, but in reality it's actually quite difficult. We date dinosaurs based on where we find their fossils, using the ages of the rocks that they're found in. This means that the 'ages' of different dinosaurs is actually indirect and constrained by how well we're.

These include radiometric dating of volcanic layers above or below the fossils or by comparisons to similar rocks and fossils of known ages. Why date a fossil? Knowing when a dinosaur or other animal lived is important because it helps us place.

Scientists determine the age of dinosaur bones by dating the fossils and the surrounding rocks. Read about radiometric dating and other techniques.

There is a lot of discussion about this issue on this internet, so I think this question may be worth addressing seriously. The main point of the debate seems to be the following Over the past decades, several research groups of self-proclaimed creationist scientists have claimed discoveries of dinosaur bones that they have.
