Does carbon dating work dinosaurs
Eventually, non-creationists are bound to run their own C-14 tests to remove all doubt. Danny Faulkner says that “it is appropriate that creationists take the lead in the study of soft tissue in fossils” given that the scientific world only “begrudgingly has come to accept” the soft tissue evidence.
More work remains for the i DINO project (investigation of Dinosaur Intact Natural Osteo-tissue), he says, and preliminary filming for a video has begun.
The CRS project is entirely funded by private donations.
That is highly unlikely to be the case, they argue, since four other labs have published radiocarbon presence in specimens thought to be millions of years old.
Because of the isotope’s short half-life (5,730 years), no C14 should be detectable after about 100,000 years.
Finding measurable C14 in the bones would therefore invalidate the consensus belief that dinosaurs lived and died over 65 million years ago.
Those reports compare favorably to the new results, yielding radiocarbon ages in the same finite range.
Strikingly, it doesn’t matter if the specimens are labeled Cenozoic, Mesozoic or Paleozoic: each era spans the range of radiocarbon “ages” resulting from the tests.
