New science directly challenges the millions-of-years dogma scattered throughout the blockbuster movie Jurassic World. The spring edition of the Creation Research Society Quarterly CRSQ is a special issue that focuses on the investigation of dinosaur proteins inside fossil bones. The last article in the issue presents never-before-seen carbon dates for 14 different fossils, including dinosaurs. Because radiocarbon decays relatively quickly, fossils that are even , years old should have virtually no radiocarbon left in them.
Carbon dating dinosaur bones
Until now, I have assiduously avoided Ancient Aliens. I had a feeling that if I watched the show—which popularizes far-fetched, evidence-free idiocy about how human history has been molded by extra-terrestrial visitors—my brain would jostle its way out of my skull and stalk the earth in search of a kinder host. Or, at the very least, watching the show would kill about as many brain cells as a weekend bender in Las Vegas. I steeled myself for the pain and watched the mind-melting madness unfold. If they did, my entire review would be little more than a string of expletives. Given my restrictions, I have little choice but to try to encapsulate the shiny, documentary-format rubbish in a more coherent and reader-sensitive way.
Relic bone attributed to Saint James, 'brother' of Jesus, radiocarbon dated to 214 - 340
On the Atlantic coast of the U. In Morocco, paleontologists excavated the fossils of a dinosaur that roamed Earth million years ago. How did the researchers determine these ages?
This helps us to understand how that species fits into the evolutionary tree of change; when did they first appear and when did the last of their kind walk this Earth? Radiometric dating involves exploiting the radioactive decay of unstable atoms naturally present in the structure of bones and rocks. In old dinosaur bones, the material is buried under layers upon layers of sediment under high pressure.
