The Triceratops brow horn was excavated in May 2012 and stored at the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum.The Museum, which has since 2005 been in cooperation with the Paleochronology Group, a team of consultants in geology, paleontology, chemistry, engineering, and education, sent a sample of the outer portion of the Triceratops brow horn to Head of the Paleochronology Group Hugh Miller, at his request, in order to carry out Carbon-14 dating.Mr Miller sent the sample to the University of Georgia, Center for Applied Isotope Studies, for this purpose.

Also, different radiometric dating techniques independently converges with each other and with other dating techniques such as dendrochronology, layers in sediment, growth rings on corals, rhythmic layering of ice in glaciers, magnetostratigraphy, fission tracks and many other methods. There exists different versions, or isotopes of many elements.

This serves as strong evidence for the reliability of radiometric dating methods. These isotopes differ in the number of neutrons they have in their nuclei.

Of course, that error estimate is complete nonsense.

It refers to one specific source of error – the uncertainty in the measurement of the amounts of various atoms used in the analysis.

However, scientists from the Paleochronology Group, who perform research relating to “anomalies of science”, maintain that dinosaurs did not die out millions of years ago and that there is substantial evidence that they were still alive as recently as 23,000 years ago.

Until recently, Carbon-14 dating was never used to test dinosaur bones, as the analysis is only reliable up to 55,000 years.

And it also provides a way to add automatically updated evolution or science headlines to your web site (separate page).

As someone who has studied radioactivity in detail, I have always been a bit amused by the assertion that radioactive dating is a precise way to determine the age of an object.

As a scientific skeptics, we ask ourselves: is this really the case?

Let us critically examine each of these claims and see if they hold up against the science.

While doing so, we will have to learn about how radiometric dating works.
