That means, they dated to much younger than we know they really are.If things can have “too much” C-14, isn’t it possible for differences in the past to cause other things to have “too little” C-14?I just “happened” to run across another Creation Science radio show to listen to while I’m waiting for a new episode of the Creation Today Show.Guess what the first program I listened to talked about: Carbon-14 and those trees with higher levels than normal! Don Clark explained the C-14 in our bodies today has only been there for about a year or so since we keep cycling it out somehow. It isn’t very scientific to assume the level of Carbon-14 in the atmosphere has always been exactly the same as it is today.Recognizing that Enyart is a creationist, he revealed his real reason: “The spin you guys could get out of this,” he admitted, “would not help us.” But it isn’t spin! This paper now confirms #2 of his dinosaur soft tissue predictions: “For now, dinosaur tissue will be found not only in rare circumstances, but rather easily, i.e., when looked for.” Prediction confirmed! Sooner or later, someone will do a carbon-14 test on dinosaur soft tissue.If there is any C-14 found at all, it will defeat the geologic column with its “Age of dinosaurs” ending millions of years ago. I discovered it was because of Carbon-14 dating of the charcoal buried among the stones.
Bob Enyart discusses this paper with CEH editor David Coppedge in a special edition of his radio show today (June 10).Gleanings from the original paper show discoverers excited but surprised. Yesterday’s announcement of dinosaur soft tissue in Nature Communications by scientists from Imperial College London sets a new high hurdle for critics.It’s not really news, since soft tissue in dinosaur bones has been reported for over a decade now (see Bob Enyart’s list of journal papers).Beta Analytic uses Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) technology, which gives the most advanced precision and accuracy for Carbon-14 measurements.The radiocarbon dating ab is based in Miami, Florida, and is the world leader in Carbon-14 analyses since 1979.Don’t be alarmed if the age comes out to tens or hundreds of thousands of years, because the error bars go out of control beyond dates that can be checked against recorded history, and creationists expect different atmospheric conditions in the pre-Flood world. We want to see a fair, unbiased suite of accurate carbon-14 tests on dinosaur soft tissue.
