Dinosaur bones should not raiocarbon-date:
Youre right for once. Thse samples were bogus because it was a bioapatite segment from silica rock. I suspect some real hokey pokey in the QA dept . U of Ga did keep their lab process correct and they noted that ALL the samples were bioapatite.
Fo a fossil out pf the HEll Creek or the Morrison (both formations where Ive worked) the bones are strictly silicified so anyCO3 in the apatite fraction was probably of much more recent deposition. NOTICE that theres no friggin article in NATURE ABOUT THIS. If these were actual numbers, fully QA'd, run in multiplicates, and chains of custody intact with a paleontological report and date of the sediment surrounding, I think wed see the bogosity of this crap.
The Creationists have been doing this underhanded **** for years
1faked footprints in the Paluxey shale
2"Seeded" very recent volcanic ashes 9(inserted older zircons nto "reset" zircons from Mt ST Helens
We get to see these fake science experiments a few years after they get reported by popular press, and then, everybody who isn't a scientist is just confused
THERE ARE NO 22-35 K year dinosaur bones with viable C14 that is autochthanous to the bone. THAT IS JUST CREATIONIST BULLSHIT.
YOU ALWAYS do the K/Ar of the zircons in the sediments from the nearest overlying and underlying ash beds conformably near where the fossils are found
