We will deal with carbon dating first and then with the other dating methods.Carbon has unique properties that are essential for life on Earth.In fact, it has fluctuated a great deal over the years.This variation is caused by both natural processes and human activity.Many people are under the false impression that carbon dating proves that dinosaurs and other extinct animals lived millions of years ago.
It makes no sense at all if man appeared at the end of billions of years.
What would happen if a dinosaur bone were carbon dated?
- At Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Scientists dated dinosaur bones using the Carbon dating method.
So, we have a “clock” which starts ticking the moment something dies.
Obviously, this works only for things which were once living.
