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 .
"We didn't tell them that the bones they were dating were dinosaur bones. The Allosaurus dinosaur was supposed to be around 140,000,000 years.The samples of bone were blind samples.""Of course carbon dating isn't going to work on your Allosaurus bone. So I would expect to get some weird number like 16,000 years if you carbon date a millions of years old fossil.16.000 years by the way is still 10,000 years before your God supposedly created the Earth." Amy M 12/11/01 My response: I explain the limits of Carbon dating below.Many people are under the false impression that carbon dating proves that dinosaurs and other extinct animals lived millions of years ago.What many do not realize is that carbon dating is not used to date dinosaurs. Carbon dating is only accurate back a few thousand years.
So if scientists believe that a creature lived millions of years ago, then they would need to date it another way. They assume dinosaurs lived millions of years ago (instead of thousands of years ago like the bible says).
They ignore evidence that does not fit their preconceived notion.
What would happen if a dinosaur bone were carbon dated?
- At Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Scientists dated dinosaur bones using the Carbon dating method.
The age they came back with was only a few thousand years old. And kept their theory that dinosaurs lived "millions of years ago" instead. They then use potassium argon, or other methods, and date the fossils again.
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.
