Dating the age of dinosaurs
The carbon-14 decays at a known rate, but since it is being replenished while the animal is alive, only after the animal dies is no carbon-14 added.
Of course, this assumes that carbon-14 is not inadvertently added to the dead animal’s remains.
Another question that might come up with respect to these studies is the issue of contamination.
If young organic material became mixed with the dinosaur material that was carbon-14 dated, then the younger material would skew the result to a younger age.
Notice the titles of 4 and 6 correspond in both lists, which in the opinion of some, hints strongly that the list with number 5 present was an original list." href="#footnote5_a8p1ztr"Why is the information presented in the paper important?
Accessed 2013 Jul 2" href="#footnote2_12e3n2y" Both the carbon-14 dating results and the discovery of soft tissue in incompletely fossilized dinosaur bones share the common theme of being indicators of much younger ages for dinosaurs than evolution claims.
