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.
