The age for all these fossils was found to be less than 50,000 years1.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.2 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.The dinosaur dates reported below and discussed in the AOGS 2012 paper discussed throughout this article, included triceratops, hadrosaur, allosaurus, and acrocanthasaurs.Below is a list of some dinosaur fossils and their dated ages from the Miller paper.
Several tests were done by the University of Georgia using accelerator mass spectrometry.
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.
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.
Why is the information presented in the paper important?
If the accepted ages of millions of years for dinosaurs were to be found to be in error, this would be a problem to evolution.
