    Many people are under the false impression that carbon dating proves that dinosaurs and other extinct animals lived millions of years ago. What many do not realize is that carbon dating is not used to date dinosaurs.

    The reason? 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.

    But there is the problem. They assume dinosaurs lived millions of years ago (instead of thousands of years ago like the bible says). They ignore evidence that does not fit their preconceived notion.

    What would happen if a dinosaur bone were carbon dated? - At Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Scientists dated dinosaur bones using the Carbon dating method. The age they came back with was only a few thousand years old.

    This date did not fit the preconceived notion that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. So what did they do? They threw the results out. And kept their theory that dinosaurs lived "millions of years ago" instead.

    This is common practice.

    They then use potassium argon, or other methods, and date the fossils again.

    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! - how’s that for an "exact" science?

    They then pick the date they like best, based upon their preconceived notion of how old their theory says the fossil should be (based upon the Geologic column).

    So they start with the assumption that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, then manipulate the results until they agree with their conclusion.

    Their assumptions dictate their conclusions.

    So why is it that if the date doesn't fit the theory, they change the facts?

    Unbiased science changes the theory to support the facts. They should not change the facts to fit the theory.

    A Dinosaur carbon dated at 9,890 and 16,000 years old NOT millions of years old like evolutionists claim

    I have documentation of an Allosaurus bone that was sent to The University of Arizona to be carbon dated. The results were 9,890 +/- 60 years and 16,120 +/- 220 years.

    "We didn't tell them that the bones they were dating were dinosaur bones. The result was sample B at 16,120 years. The Allosaurus dinosaur was supposed to be around 140,000,000 years. The samples of bone were blind samples."

    This test was done on August 10, 1990

    There are many different opinions out there, but they are all just theories. Science cant yet prove anything that has happened in the past. We can only take educated guesses about the past, to actually prove something you have to witness it.
    Dino's existed only a few thousand years ago, and up to a few centuries ago. This is why they find blood cells in the bone marrow of some femures. If they were millions of year old, neither the blood cells or the bones would still exist. Under the right conditions, a fossil can be created within a year or so. Dino's and man are depicted on cave drawings and pottery interacting with each other, only a few thousand years old. Marco Polo documented the dino's pulled the chariots in China, and other explorers document dino's in other countries as well.
    Dinosaurs appeared on Earth roughly 230 million years ago, and extinct about 65 million years ago
    my x wife the Jewish Christin that she tells everyone is one of the 144 thousand god has chose to take first. tells me in the good book that there were dinosaurs walking around at the time. Now I know that she is a crazy as the video 2 girls and a cup.but come on we can say that an croc is a dinosaur.
    if you are an American, you will believe that God created the universe man, dinosaurs etc about 10,000 years ago, but the true answer is about 150 million years.

    There are many Americans that believe dinosaurs lived millions and millions of years ago. The Creation Studies institute has a biblical view, according to scientist who are of the Christian faith. It's a good alternative creation theory and very sound in it's scientific theroy.
