Can radiocarbon dating be used on bones
Now let’s deal with some more of your specific statements.To begin with, is the earth approximately 4 billion years old?
The only way we know our observations were the same last week as they are today is if we have an eyewitness testimony from someone who made the same observations last week.
In the Bible, we have the eyewitness testimony of someone who has been present throughout all of history and who has told us what happened.
That’s an assumption, not “irrefutable proof.” As for the idea that “there is a great amount of proof…that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago,” you should check out the dating of dinosaur bone fragments.
As you yourself have said, radioactive isotopes can be used to date bone fragments.
I read through your article concerning the existence and life of dinosaurs. Different radioactive isotopes can be used to date material from bone fragments to rocks so in fact, yes there is a great amount of proof that the Earth is billions of years old and that dinosaurs lived millions of year ago. M., Thanks for stopping by at our website to read our article concerning the existence and life of dinosaurs.
We don't need to be there to know it...science is the window to the past, present, and future. You can't take the Bible literally yet conform to the techniques and values of science. It is a pity that you didn’t keep browsing through our website, as you would have found lots of information about radiometric dating.
In this case, radiocarbon has been used, and sure enough, radiocarbon dating reveals that fossilized dinosaur bones are only thousands of years old!
If, as you claim, dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, then because radiocarbon decays so rapidly there should be no radiocarbon left in dinosaur bones.
On the other hand, the court testimonies of forensic scientists are subjected to intense scrutiny, because they do not constitute proof.
Rather, the evidence of scientists who were not there to witness the event is open to alternate interpretations.
