Radiometric dating idiots
Mr Miller told Ancient Origins that it is always desirable to carbon-14 date several fractions to minimize the possibility of errors which Miller requested and that essential concordance was achieved in the 1000's of years as with all bone fractions of ten other dinosaurs.
Triceratops, a name meaning “three-horned face”, is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur that is said to have first appeared during the late Maastrichtian stage of the late Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago in what is now North America, and became extinct in the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event 66 million years ago.
The Triceratops brow horn was excavated in May 2012 and stored at the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum.
The Museum, which has since 2005 been in cooperation with the Paleochronology Group, a team of consultants in geology, paleontology, chemistry, engineering, and education, sent a sample of the outer portion of the Triceratops brow horn to Head of the Paleochronology Group Hugh Miller, at his request, in order to carry out Carbon-14 dating.
We've also tried to teach them about the difference between evolution and the history of life.
In order to explain the history of life on Earth you need to account for mass extinctions and other chance events that have nothing to do with evolution. The latest evidence is a recent post by David Klinghoffer [Theory of Evolution? He says, The theory of evolution by natural selection operating on random mutations, as a sweeping explanation for life and how it got there, is a "narrative." It presents a very smooth story, persuasive to most scientists. No knowledgeable scientist thinks that natural selection is the only mechanism of evolution so no knowledgeable scientist thinks that mutation selection explains the history of life. Not only are scientists aware of what modern evolutionary theory actually says but they're also aware of other factors that determined the history of life. What is it that makes them so resistant to learning about the ideas they so adamantly oppose?
Mr Miller sent the sample to the University of Georgia, Center for Applied Isotope Studies, for this purpose.
The sample was divided at the lab into two fractions with the “bulk” or collagen break down products yielding an age of 33,570 ± 120 years and the carbonate fraction of bone bioapatite yielding an age of 41,010 ± 220 years [UGAMS-11752 & 11752a].
The series is based on the extensive research done in 23 trips to Egypt and 50 other countries around the world by Dr.
Carmen Boulter in the Graduate Division of Educational Research at the University of Calgary.
Jericho is just one example of the discrepancy between historical and C14 dates for the second millennium B. C14 dates are consistently 100–150 years earlier than historical dates.
is based on pottery, which, in turn, is based on Egyptian chronology.
