Carbon-14 Being Found in Dinosaur Fossils!

in
Psalm 25:5
"Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day."

Evolutionists were so sure that dinosaur fossils are too old to contain any carbon-14, they never even bothered to check. Or perhaps they were afraid of what they would find. In any case, creationist scientists are now boldly going where evolutionists have feared to tread.

Triceratops skeleton at Los Angeles Museum of Natural HistoryAn article in the spring 2015 edition of the Creation Research Society Quarterly presents never-before-seen carbon dates for 14 different fossils, including a Triceratops and other dinosaurs. As ICR scientist Brian Thomas points out, "Because radiocarbon decays relatively quickly, fossils that are even 100,000 years old should have virtually no radiocarbon left in them. But they do."

Using the services of five different commercial and academic laboratories, the research team tested seven dinosaur bones and detected carbon-14 in them all. The team also looked at several dozen published carbon-14 results for fossils, wood and coal throughout the geologic column and found radiocarbon in almost 50 samples.

Evolutionists, of course, try to explain it all away by saying the samples were contaminated. Nice try, but if this were true, how could it be said that any radiocarbon dating results are accurate? Evolutionists can't just toss out data they don't like!

Or maybe they can. In this way, they are acting like police officers telling bystanders, "Nothing to see here, folks. Just move along." If anything, this type of behavior strongly suggests that something really is going on! And in this case, it's proof positive that dinosaurs are thousands and not millions of years old!

Prayer: 
Heavenly Father, thank You for raising up creationists who are uncovering evidence that the Earth is young. I pray that this will cause many people to question and then abandon their belief in evolution. Amen.
