Interestingly, even some young-earth creationists accept these dates and reason that dinosaurs could never have existed because their bones are dated to before the creation of the world.
Children's books, schools, and television programs have so firmly connected dinosaur bones and other fossils with a multimillion-year history that the two are practically inseparable in today's culture.
For a man who does not believe in a miracle, a slow miracle would be just as incredible as a swift one."*G. Chesterton (1925)."The theory of evolution gives no answer to the important problem of the origin of life and presents only fallacious solutions to the problem of the nature of evolutive transformations . We are condemned to believe in evolution, but we will always search for a suggestion concerning the methods of transformations . Perhaps we are now in a worse position than in 1859 because we have searched for one century and we have the impression that the various hypotheses [of how evolution could have occurred] are now exhausted.
And carbon-14 is constantly doing this decay thing. So over the course of 5,730 years, roughly half of them will have decayed. Well, if you know that all living things have a certain proportion of carbon-14 in their tissue, as kind of part of what makes them up, and then if you were to find some bone-- let's just say find some bone right here that you dig it up on some type of archaeology dig.In terms of radiometric dating of the fossils (or of rocks in the same layers as the fossils) I was wondering if you knew exactly how this was commonly done.Once a fossil is found does the paleontologist/anthropologist.c) sample multiple rocks in the same layer as the fossil - with a large range of ages resulting - and attribute to the fossil the most 'expected' age (out of the selection of rocks) in terms of satisfying the evolutionary model?Most young earth creationists reject all of these points.As a scientific skeptics, we ask ourselves: is this really the case?
