So they start with the assumption that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, then manipulate the results until they agree with their conclusion. So why is it that if the date doesn't fit the theory, they change the facts?At least to the uninitiated, carbon dating is generally assumed to be a sure-fire way to predict the age of any organism that once lived on our planet.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.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 .
Specifically, there are two types of carbon found in organic materials: carbon 12 (C-12) and carbon 14 (C-14).Basically, we've been using items of known age to check the accuracy of carbon dating ever since the method was invented in the late 1940s.The short version is that, when 14C dating was developed in 1949, the first test of the method was to date Egyptian artifacts whose ages were already known from the inscriptions associated with them —plus to date some wood from old trees whose rings could be counted and the age of the wood known.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).
