Carbon-14 Shows Dinosaurs Lived Recently

Surprising Results From Radiometric Dating of Dinosaurs

One of the oral presentations in the 2012 Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting in Singapore surprised at least some of the members of the audience. Dinosaur bones from several different locations had been carbon-dated, and it appears those animals lived only tens of thousands of years ago, not many millions of years ago.

In fact, it was so surprising that several undisclosed persons talked with two chairmen after the conference. The result? Without warning, the abstract of that presentation was removed from the official conference web site. The reason given for the deletion? “There is obviously an error in these data.” So why did those two chairmen not even mention what the error might have been? The obvious reason appears to be this: They had no knowledge of any particular problem with the research and presentation, BUT the results contradicted generations of popular teachings about when dinosaurs lived on this planet.

Censorship in Science

Of course nobody would have approved if those two chairmen had arranged for the government to put the members of the Paleochronology group under house arrest, keeping them under confinement for the remainder of their lives. The house arrest of Galileo was centuries ago, when educated authorities acted primitively in suppressing new discoveries.

So why is this discovery not heralded in Western newspapers worldwide? After all, the censorship was only in that one conference, in 2012, in Singapore, right? Wrong. These scientists have been blocked from giving presentations elsewhere, including the 2009 North American Paleontological Convention, and the American Geophysical Union in both 2011 and 2012. In addition, the Geological Society of America kept them out in both 2011 and 2012, and editors of various scientific journals have refused to publish their findings.

Keep in mind, these are only test results, not philosophical or religious interpretation of the carbon-14 testing. It is obviously censorship to keep this discovery from becoming better known. What could be more embarrassing to many professors and many respected scientists than a discovery that could set them up for ridicule for being 1,000 times wrong in the ages when dinosaurs lived?

Fortunately this discovery of recent carbon-14-dated ages of dinosaurs coincided with discoveries of soft tissues in dinosaur bones, strengthening the case that these wonderful creatures have lived much more recently than Western traditions had proclaimed.

No wonder some of our ancestors reported large dragons as if they were real animals.



Dinosaur Fossils are Carbon Dated

Researchers have found a reason for the puzzling survival of soft tissue and collagen in dinosaur bones – the bones are younger than anyone ever guessed.  Carbon-14 (C-14) dating of multiple samples of bone from 8 dinosaurs found in Texas, Alaska, Colorado, and Montana revealed that they are only 22,000 to 39,000 years old.

Carbon-14 Dating Versus Evolution

Both evolutionists and creationists stand in agreement that radiocarbon dating, which can be used only to date organic samples, is totally ineffective in measuring the alleged millions or billions of years of the evolutionary timetable. [yet dinosaurs are shown to be only thousands of years old when carbon-14 tested.]

I am not ridiculing the intelligence of Mr. Farrell. But if I understand what he was trying to portray in his article from which the above words were taken, I would advice him to avoid ridiculing the intelligence of a group of people with whom he disagrees in philosophy. After all, Mr. Farrell was wrong, in one sentence, by a factor of about 1,000 times.

Dinosaur Fossils and Radiometric Dating

Dinosaurs and pterosaurs, we have long been taught, became extinct many millions of years ago . . . or did they? The discovery that bones from an Acrocanthosaurus and a Triceratops, not to mention several other types, were alive and part of living dinosaurs only tens of thousands of years ago—that astonishing discovery was met with immediate . . . censorship.
