Issues with carbon dating
This was news to him, and contradicted prior statements and documents from the university.He is currently seeking relief in a legal action for wrongful termination and religious discrimination by California State University Northridge (CSUN).Members of the Paleochronology group presented their findings at the 2012 Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting in Singapore, August 13-17, a conference of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS).Since dinosaurs are thought to be over 65 million years old, the news is stunning - and more than some can tolerate.Schweitzer herself wonders why these materials are preserved when all the models say they should be degraded.That is, if they really are over 65 million years old, as the conventional wisdom says. A lone femur bone was excavated in 2004 in Cretaceous clay at 47 6 18N by 104 39 22W in Montana by the O. Miller team in 2005 to retrieve samples for C-14 testing. Collagen: Proteins that are the main component of connective tissue.Dinosaur bones with Carbon-14 dates in the range of 22,000 to 39,000 years before present, combined with the discovery of soft tissue in dinosaur bones, indicate that something is indeed wrong with the conventional wisdom about dinosaurs. Kline team of the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum. Triceratops #2, a very large ceratopsid-type dinosaur excavated in 2007 in Cretaceous clay at 47 02 44N and 104 32 49W in Montana by the O. Outer bone fragments of a femur were tested for C-14. Scrapings were taken from a rib still imbedded in the clay soil of a ranch in CO, partially excavated in 20, in 150 Ma (late Jurassic) strata by C. It can be as high as 20% in normal bone but decomposes over time so that there should be none after ~100,000 years.
Schweitzer answered the challenge by testing with antibodies.Mark was suddenly terminated by the Biology Department when his discovery of soft tissues in a Triceratops horn was published in Acta Histochemica.The university claimed his appointment at had been temporary and claimed a lack of funding for the position.Her report in 2009 confirmed the presence of collagen and other proteins that bacteria do not make.
In 2011, a Swedish team found soft tissue and biomolecules in the bones of another creature from the time of the dinosaurs, a Mosasaur, which was a giant lizard that swam in shallow ocean waters.
He said that his team and the laboratories they employed took special care to avoid contamination.
