Dating of dinosaurs bones

Thus, the technique was called "the first successful direct dating of fossil vertebrate bone"—a classic case of circular reasoning.

A trio of geologists has published what they called the first successful direct dating of dinosaur bone.

They used a new laser technique to measure radioisotopes in the bone, yielding an age of millions of years.

They then used these measurements to estimate an age for the bone.

If dinosaur bones are 65 million years old, there should not be one atom of C-14 left in them.

It is no wonder that scientists were not interested in looking for collagen in these dinosaur bones, since no collagen could remain after a maximum of 30,000 years.

If any collagen whatever is still in the bone, this would falsify their evolution-friendly "age." Also, collagen contains carbon.

It formed from lava that spilled down the canyon's side.
