Radiometric Dating of Recent Dinosaur Bones — Censored

Posted on Posted in Dinosaur

How does the dating of dinosaur fossils relate to eyewitness accounts of apparent modern pterosaurs? Those two kinds of creatures have long been assumed to have lived together in the distant past of millions of years ago, at least in the teachings of modern Western societies. It now appears obvious that both kinds of animals lived together much more recently, although two supposedly scientific authorities have censored this discovery, in my opinion, preventing public viewing. Decide for yourself if this is a case of censorship.

It was two chairmen of the Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting in Singapore, a five-day conference held in August of 2012. They apparently gave no objection, during the conference, to any of the materials presented by the Paleochronology group. After the conference, those two gave no warning that everything by that group would be removed from the official website, leaving no trace that the presentation had ever taken place (except for the absence of report number five). The conference website now has the following oral presentation records:

1) Environmental Drivers on the Global Distribution of Novel Glycerol . . .

2) Reconstruction of Paleo-temperature Using Biomarker Diols in . . .

3) Carbon Caption and Storage in Rocks-perspective from . . .

4) Tracing Soil Organic Carbon in the Lower Amazon River . . .

6) Carbon Isotopic and Organic Biomarker Evidence of . . .

[and so on]


2012 conference oral presentation censored


Notice that oral presentation number five is missing in the above.

The two chairmen were Minhan Dai of Xiamen University (China) and Peter Swart of the University of Miami. Fortunately those two could not erase the memories of those who attended the oral presentation by the Paleochronology organization. Truth will prevail.

According to the New Geology web site:

They did not look at the data and they never spoke with the researchers.  They did not like the test results, so they censored them.

Why Censor by Deletion?

Of course we can be grateful that a dissenting scientist, in modern Western societies, is not put under house arrest for the rest of his life, like Galileo. But the Paleochronology group is in fact a group, and if they had made some serious error in their presentation, why not just point out the problem at the top and bottom of the online report? Why make it appear like nobody had even given a lecture about carbon-14 dating of dinosaur fossils?

If I am not mistaken, Galileo’s disobedience (to the pope of his time) was made public, probably with details about why he was being disciplined. But the official online report by the Paleochronology group was deleted without warning, with no official record that they had even made an oral presentation, apparently, at that conference in Singapore. No detailed reasoning was given.

One negative result of that censorship was the ignorance that can become apparent in prominent online publications, possibly with the following as an example:

Rationalwiki Page on Carbon-14 Dating

What does “Rationalwiki” say about carbon-14 dating of fossils? As of early February 5, 2015, it says little except this:

. . . “dinosaur fossils are not dated using carbon dating; dinosaurs became extinct 66 million years ago, and carbon dating only works for objects less than 50~60,000 years old.”

Perhaps censorship from the two chairmen of the 2012 conference in Singapore kept the “Rationalwiki” writer from knowing what has really been happening in scientific investigation using carbon dating of dinosaur fossils. Such dating has taken place, indeed for years. So why do we still see “millions of years?”

Is this just a differing opinion about results? No. The Rationalwiki article made a error of fact with “dinosaur fossils are not dated using carbon dating.” For years dinosaur bones have been dated with radiocarbon methods (both conventional and Accelerator Mass Spectrometry), but it is the lack of proper attention and turning away ones eyes—that has kept honest investigators from the truth.

See a bit of what a lack of censorship can reveal

The results of the C-14 dating, over a period of years, are astonishing to many who had assumed universal extinctions many millions of years ago. Here’s a tiny sample:

Dating Dinosaurs With Carbon-14

The carbon-14 (14C) method of dating biological material was developed by the American physicist Willard Libby in the mid-20th century. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for that achievement. This scientific method for determining ages of specimens is also called radiocarbon dating, abbreviated RC.

An Allosaurus excavated in Colorado was 14C dated 31,360 years before present (+/- 100 years). A Triceratops found in Montana was dated as recently as 24,340 years before present (+/- 70 years).

Recent Dinosaurs

Those attending the Paleochronology  lecture  were  thrilled,  at  the  2012  Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting  in Singapore. Details were given on many carbon-14 tests that had been done on dinosaur bones over a period of years. . . . They [the fossils of those dinosaurs] were between 22,000 and 39,000 years old.

Scientific Paper on Living Pterosaurs

Guessman and Woetzel prepared and administered formal interview procedures with a two-page questionnaire and a sketch page of 34 silhouettes of bats, birds, and pterosaurs . . . For future work, I recommend beginning with . . . open-format questioning to take advantage of unique opportunities with eyewitnesses (the interviewer using a foreign language) and then following up promising leads with a questionnaire and sketch page (using interpreters).
