  • I won't bother discussing these technical issues because it's up to the lab to deal with their instruments and methods, not me. Do note that Beta counting is old hat and AMS is now more commonly ...
  • So then there is a possibility that the test is valid? When I say valid, I mean it's taken into consideration, not necessarily taken at face value.
  • Ok, so then why is it suddenly a failed test if it's from a dinosaur?  What logic is there to say that the test is invalid?
  • Replied in So, Phil...
    Wakey Wakey GB. It's just simple arithmetic. The labs have told us that the way they get the final result is this: X - Y = Z Where X is the Sample C14 Reading Y is the Background C14 Reading Z is the ...
  • Where did you get the 10% limit reduction from? Ahem, you and Lee Jay never blamed the uncertainty on contamination as this letter does. Here is what you and Lee Jay are quoted as saying: All along ...
  • Sorry Einstein, but I don't think anybody in the C14 dating field has said that anything over 10k has sketchy results.  Maybe above 40k, but I don't know of anyone who says 10k. And what if you ...
  • Does your bathroom scale give spurious results when there's nothing weighing on it? Radiometric dating is similar in that it should not give spurious results when either the sample is too young or ...
  • You didn't read the data did you?  Carbon dating is telling us the bones aren't over 50k years.  The dates are all below 40k.  If they really are over 50k years, Carbon dating tells you >50k years ...
  • Not everyone is going to agree, and that's fine. Well, if I'm tossing up between listening to experts in the field and Bobn2 or Lee Jay, I'll have to go with the former.  These lay guys are trying ...
  • Well, we don't have the fossil to show for it.  (Just like my brain I guess) Furthermore, when dino bones are C14 dated, they range from 22,000 to 40,000 years which defies the claim they're ...
  • No, but by your logic they might the be ancestor to pigs.
  • Or not. You need to get updated. Unfossilized Dino bones were reported in 2005 by Mary Schweitzer. Soft tissue consisted of blood vessels, bone matrix and bone cells: http://science.howstuffworks.c ...
  • You're not saying that Ta Prohm Temple, Cambodia is a hoax are you? That's where the Stegasaurus at the top came from and it was built in the early 13th century. Stegasaurus amongst other animals ...
  • Sorry, I must be missing something here, but how is Trump Amer-Asian?
  • Of course we should prosecute illegal dumping, whether business or personal.  I'm talking more about consumers playing their part in being environmentally conscious with our legal activities. We ...
  • Why only target businesses?  Shouldn't everyone be responsible for protecting the environment? If I want cleaner energy that is also dearer, then I should be willing to sacrifice my own savings ...
  • 'bigotkunt' is racist? I'd like to see how that stands up in court.  Would be ok on sexist grounds.
  • Sorry, let me ask it more accurately: Are you saying you can't tell the difference between a South East Asian and a European? (Forgot about Russia and the Middle East.) Ok, how come we have ...
  • Of course creationists fully believe in natural selection. It was the creationist Edward Blyth, in the 1800s who probably influenced Charles Darwin on the concept. The University of Cambridge, ...
  • If you want science, you got science. Call this a fluke if you like, but this Stanford University report reinforces what I suspected when it comes to distinctive racial features: https://web.stanfo ...
