Carbon dating age of rock Hot chat without ragistration
This date did not fit the preconceived notion that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. They do this many times, using a different dating method each time.
The results can be as much as 150 million years different from each other! They then pick the date they like best, based upon their preconceived notion of how old their theory says the fossil should be .
Using this technique, called radiometric dating, scientists are able to "see" back in time.
Carbon dating has given archeologists a more accurate method by which they can determine the age of ancient artifacts.
As the uranium in rocks decays, it emits subatomic particles and turns into lead at a constant rate.
They ignore evidence that does not fit their preconceived notion.
What would happen if a dinosaur bone were carbon dated?
One thing you might want to ask yourself though, is how do you know it is millions of years old, giving an "incorrect" date (one that you think is too young) or if it actually is only a few thousand years old.
As far as your comments that 16,000 years is older than when God created the earth, we know that there is more carbon in the atmosphere than there was a thousand years ago. It is somewhat accurate back to a few thousand years, but carbon dating is not accurate past this. However, this does not mean that the earth is 30 thousand years old. Because of the earths declining magnetic field, more radiation (which forms C14) is allowed into the earths atmosphere.
