They must put them in a fancy machine and then, “ding” (just like a microwave oven) the timer goes off and tells them how old they are. Wait a minute, I thought they used Carbon-14 dating. My daughter, Tori, had a biology class last year as a Freshman.
She had been raised in a Christian school, but now was in the public school system for her high school years.
What we actually observe, however, fits very well with the biblical account of creation.
No surprise to those of us who believe in the inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture!
Its geologic location was the Hell Creek Formation in the State of Montana, United States of America.
When it was learned in 2005 that Triceratops and Hadrosaur femur bones in excellent condition were discovered by the Glendive (MT) Dinosaur & Fossil Museum, Hugh Miller asked and received permission to saw them in half and collect samples for C-14 testing of any bone collagen that might be extracted.
There’s no question that this is what is taught in our public schools and universities.
That’s one of the things that make them so fascinating to most people.
To be holding or looking at something that lived millions of years ago… However, have you ever asked yourself or anyone else, “What is it about a dinosaur bone that makes it so old?
Typically what happens is that the scientist in the dating laboratory asks where the bone was found (i.e. This gives them an idea of about how old the bone “should be”. Well, if the layer is 70-100 million years old (according to their evolutionary beliefs), then the fossils they find in it should be somewhere in that range. If the layer where the fossil was discovered is claimed to be somewhere between 70-100 million years old (based on the previously “assigned age”) then the fossil must be in that range as well. Something must have gone wrong with the equipment, so we can throw that date out too.
So now that we actually do have radiometric dating, do they then date the rock in which the fossil was found? Then, the Potassium method yields 72 million years and they say “See we were right!
