A a snelling radioactive dating in conflict

15 Apr

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.

Special care was taken to prevent this kind of contamination. 10 Living animals take in carbon-14 on a regular basis.

This is not predicted by conventional evolutionary theory; and other discoveries have been made concerning dinosaurs which also are not predicted by evolutionary theory such as the discovery of soft tissue in bones that are not or are only partially fossilized.

Accessed 2013 Jul 2" href="#footnote2_e2rxcyg" 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.

Snelling is one of the world’s leading researchers in flood geology. He worked for a several years in the mining industry throughout Australia undertaking mineral exploration surveys and field research.

Are the dates beyond the range of testing technology?

No, the University of Georgia had extended the maximum limit up over 50,000 years, and the ages were all well below this. After all, even though these ages are much younger than conventional ages, many creationists believe life on earth to be much younger than even the reported carbon-14 ages of these dinosaur fossils.

Of course, this assumes that carbon-14 is not inadvertently added to the dead animal’s remains.

Also, this assumes that no natural process is depositing extra carbon-14 in the animal’s remains.
