Carbon dating a fossil together dating service sioux falls sd
Her report in 2009 confirmed the presence of collagen and other proteins that bacteria do not make.
In 2011, a Swedish team found soft tissue and biomolecules in the bones of another creature from the time of the dinosaurs, a Mosasaur, which was a giant lizard that swam in shallow ocean waters.
It inspired the ICR RATE project to look for radiocarbon in deeply buried coal and in supposedly ancient diamonds.
RATE found radiocarbon at levels above the background blanks in all samples.
If that much modern radiocarbon can go that deep and that recently, then how can we trust any radiocarbon result? Also called , Earth materials like coal and graphite have found use as background blanks, even though they all appear to contain radiocarbon detectable at levels above theoretical instrument detection limits.
Members of the Paleochronology group presented their findings at the 2012 Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting in Singapore, August 13-17, a conference of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS).
Since dinosaurs are thought to be over 65 million years old, the news is stunning - and more than some can tolerate.
Creation-based thinking made a testable prediction. If Noah’s Flood formed dinosaur and other fossils only 4,500 or so years ago, then they may still contain measurable amounts of the short-lived radioactive isotope carbon-14—also called radiocarbon.
On the other hand, any fossil deposited before the limit of carbon-14 longevity (around 100,000 theoretical years ago) would have no carbon-14 left.
They wrote, “As the C in the dinosaur bone is not radiocarbon dead, this suggests an influx of more modern C (i.e., not radiocarbon dead) into the fossil.” Or, it could suggest that the fossil is young. By allowing humics to remain, their protocol opened the door to traces of modern radiocarbon to contribute to the total count.
