Radiometric dating dinosaur bones

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

But this "age" was not only the result of a broken radioisotope system, it was contrived to agree with previously assigned dates for the samples.

Never, because Carbon-14 dating decays away at a rate that there wouldn’t be any left if the bones were millions of years old (as my daughter so aptly pointed out).

In fact, there wouldn’t be any left if the bones were even close to 100,000 years old.

Something else that most would consider being obvious is that dinosaur bones are millions of years old.

Most scientists believe them to be at least 65 million years old.

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

The laser dislodged radioisotopes and other relevant isotopes, which were detected and counted.
