Job 28:16

Because half of the radioactive carbon-14 in anything decays to nonradioactive material in 5,730 years, things that are supposedly millions of years old cannot possibly have any. At least that's what...

While I was reading this aloud to my 11-year-old son, he suggested that perhaps the results were uniformly skewed. I asked him to explain. He mentioned that dogs age approximately 7 years, compared to human age progression. So, when we arbitrarily assigned a factor of 10 years of development (again compared to human age progression) for each year of earth habitation for the dinosaurs, this would put the actual ages of the dinosaur bones at between 2200 and 3900 years old -- close to the age of some of the dinosaurs at the time of Noah's Flood. With this in mind, in order to compensate for these factors, what carbon-14 comparisons have been made on recent human and animal carcasses?
