Do scientists use carbon dating dinosaurs

The age they came back with was only a few thousand years old. And kept their theory that dinosaurs lived "millions of years ago" instead. They then use potassium argon, or other methods, and date the fossils again.This date did not fit the preconceived notion that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. They do this many times, using a different dating method each time.

(I would be delighted beyond words if scientists had already begun dating pterosaur fossils through radiocarbon methods, but it appears we need to wait for that.) Shellac contamination?

A 1990 experiment that involved radiocarbon dating of pieces from two dinosaur bones—that test will not be covered, for it involved a controversy regarding a report of shellac that may have contaminated one of the two sample sources.

In other words, if a tree or animal died only a few centuries after the Flood of Noah, the remains could be radiocarbon dated to be tens of thousands of years old rather than the correct date of thousands of years old.

But that’s a long story, not where we’re going with carbon-14 dating in this post.

is actually that of microbes that have replaced the original dinosaur tissue, as sceptics of her findings have proposed.

Larsson has endorsed this idea as ‘totally logical’ (Soft Tissue in Dinosaur Fossils?

What would happen if a dinosaur bone were carbon dated?

- At Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Scientists dated dinosaur bones using the Carbon dating method.

So if scientists believe that a creature lived millions of years ago, then they would need to date it another way. They assume dinosaurs lived millions of years ago (instead of thousands of years ago like the bible says).
