Scientific Dating and Young Dinosaurs

A number of pieces of dinosaur bones found in North America have been dated in recent years. So how many millions of years old are those fossils? Well, they’re not actually that old, apparently, dated at tens of thousands of years old, according to carbon-14 testing.

Scientific dating that shows that some dinosaurs are young? Precisely.

What kinds of dinosaurs?

  1. Acrocanthosaurus (as recent as 23,760 + 270 years ago)
  2. Allosaurus (living 31,360 + 100 years before present)
  3. Apatosaurus (living only 38,250 + 160 years ago)
  4. Hadrosaurus (as little as 22,380 + 800 years BP)
  5. Triceratops (alive as little as 24,340 + 70 years ago)

Where are Young Dinosaurs Bones Found?

The fossils dated by C-14 were excavated in Alaska, Colorado, Montana, and Texas.

Details of the Carbon-14 Dating

Between 2007 and 2011, the Paleochronology group sent eleven dinosaur bone samples to be carbon-dated by a respected laboratory: the Center for Applied Isotope Studies, University of Georgia. The scientist Alexander Cherkinsky directed the pretreatment and processing of the dinosaur bones, using the Accelerator Mass Spectrometer (AMS), the most advanced kind of equipment for radiocarbon dating.

Reaction from Scientists

The facility that did the carbon-14 radiometric dating has refused to date any more dinosaur bones, although they have not given any reason for the shocking young ages that they have given. In 2014, the director of the facility, Jeff Speakman, was told that they had unknowingly dated dinosaur fossils and that Biblical young-earth creationists were publicizing the results to demonstrate that dinosaurs lived much more recently than was commonly thought.

That was the end of dinosaur dating at the Center for Applied Isotope Studies, University of Georgia. Anything that suggests recent living dinosaurs does not fit well with many scientists, apparently, even with scientists who did the preparations and carbon-14 dating of dinosaur bones themselves. So if you happen to uncover any dinosaur bones in you basement, don’t bother sending them to the University of Georgia; they have had their fill of young dinosaurs.

Carbon-14 Shows Dinosaurs Lived Recently

So why is this discovery not heralded in Western newspapers worldwide? After all, the censorship was only in that one conference, in 2012, in Singapore, right? Wrong. These scientists have been blocked from giving presentations elsewhere, including the 2009 North American Paleontological Convention, and the American Geophysical Union in both 2011 and 2012.

C-14 Dating Dinosaurs

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.

Radiometric Dating of Dinosaur Bones

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.

Bears die from . . . chocolate

The two adult female black bears and two cubs were all found dead. The culprit behind their deaths? Chocolate.

A bear expert in New Hampshire is now suggesting hunters not use chocolate as bait for hungry bears. The four deaths around September of 2014 were from quite a feast, however: forty pounds of chocolate and donuts.

Theobromine is the chemical in chocolate that is to blame, although its danger is much greater to animals like dogs than to humans. To threaten life, however, it needs to be ingested in large quantities, much larger than can be found in one or two candy bars. In fact, you’re probably safe eating several bars of chocolate, unless you’re a Chihuahua.

If bears are as susceptible to theobromine poisoning as dogs, you better not feed candy bars to your pet Grizzly . . . unless, of course, he’s been getting way out of hand lately and the local zoo is filled up with Grizzly bears.

Professors Versus Modern Flying Dinosaurs

The extinction of all species of dinosaurs and pterosaurs has been taken for granted . . . ask any kindergartner. But a recent survey of biology professors has revealed some doubt about pterosaur extinctions.

Pterosaur Deception?

Important words and concepts missing: “Dr. Prothero, a well-known man in his field of paleontology, said nothing about any fossil in his post about me, strange for one who should specialize in fossils. He also said nothing about eyewitness reports, strange for I specialize in those. What did he say? . . . mostly tries to make it appear that I have used improper online publicity methods . . .”

Strange Cases of Missing Children

The nonfiction Missing 411 Western United States & Canada, by the investigative journalist David Paulides, documents many strange missing-persons cases that were never solved. New investigations in cryptozoology now reveal an explanation for some of the cases.

Four American cryptozoologists have explored jungles in Papua New Guinea, during the past fourteen years:

  • Paul Nation of Texas
  • Garth Guessman of California
  • Jonathan Whitcomb of Utah
  • David Woetzel of New Hampshire

In the southwest Pacific, they interviewed native eyewitnesses of strange nocturnal flying creatures, large animals that are called by various names in villages that have different native languages:

  • Ropen (Umboi Island)
  • Wawanar (small islands near southwest coast of New Britain)
  • Kor (islands north of Umboi)
  • Indava (mainland of New Guinea)

Paul Nation, in his expedition in 2006, learned that the indavas once terrorized villagers on the mainland, carrying off pigs and even children. In other parts of the mainland, large flying creatures were reported to have even carried away full-grown men, in particular near villages around the cities of Lae and Finschhafen.

Whitcomb now proposes that at least a few of the strangest cases of missing children in wilderness areas of the United States may be from attacks from similar flying creatures, especially those cases that involve more than one of the following:

  • Human body was found badly scratched and too far away from the original location
  • Dogs cannot track where the child walked away
  • Living child was found in thick berry bushes
  • Toddler was found in higher elevation and too many miles away
  • Some articles of clothing missing in cold weather: one shoe or just a sweater or the pants

Those four American cryptozoologists believe these flying creatures are related to those that left fossils that are known, in Western countries, as pterosaurs. Many Americans call those “primitive” flying creatures pterodactyls.

Missing Children in the USA

He was playing in a small wash with his four-year-old brother on that cold February morning. Ronald did not return home with his brother, which must have alarmed their mother. A search found no sign of the two-year-old, a search that lasted four days and included airplanes, tracking dogs, and over two hundred volunteers and professional searchers, no sign until the fourth day.

“Pterodactyl” attacks in British Columbia, Canada

For many years, there have been reports of people being attacked in Africa and in Papua New Guinea. I have only recently noticed this news about flying creatures attacking people in British Columbia at night.

Live Pterosaurs Versus Extinct Woodpeckers

Norman Huntington (a pseudonym used by American author Jonathan Whitcomb), a writer on a cryptozoology blog, contends that sightings of apparent pterosaurs in Cuba, in the 1960′s and 1970′s, are not from misidentified woodpeckers. He was replying to another cryptozoology post, by a Dale Drinnon, in which extinct woodpeckers were suggested as an explanation for the “pterodactyl” encounters.

According to Huntington/Whitcomb, eyewitness accounts of featherless flying creatures with head crests and long tails, at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, are not from the imaginations of persons who had watched too many Flintstones cartoons. He suggests that the most modern insights into pterosaur fossils allow for the possibility that a large long-tailed pterosaur species with a head crest might very well have lived, and might still be living.

That line of thinking comes from details in two sighting reports from the U.S. military installation at Gitmo, Cuba. Patty Carson reported a flying “dinosaur” was there in 1965 and Eskin Kuhn reported two “pterodactyls” were there in 1971. Both eyewitnesses drew sketches, neither of which looked anything like a woodpecker. Both sketches looked like pterosaurs with long head crests and no feathers.

In addition, those two sketches have compared favorably to details in sighting reports from other areas of North America, including in the United States, according to Whitcomb.

Pterosaurs and Woodpeckers in Cuba

There were at least a small number of basal pterosaurs that had head crests, and basal pterosaurs are the ones that had long tails.

Pterosaur Sightings in Cuba

“I was looking in the direction of the ocean when I saw an incredible sight. It mesmerized me! I saw two pterosaurs . . . flying together  . . . perhaps 100 feet [high], very close in range from where I was standing, so that I had a perfectly clear view of them.”

New Word for Marriage

A new word was introduced into the English language on June 28, 2013, the same day that licenses were granted to same-gender couples in California. “Adahmeve,” pronounced uh-‘dah-meev, refers to the marital relationship between a man and a woman, according to the nonfiction author Jonathan Whitcomb, of Long Beach, California. He states that the traditional husband-wife no longer has a word specific to itself, without the introduction of the word “adahmeve.”

Even with popular acceptance of the word, the legal battles remain unaltered, for government licenses will continue to be labeled “marriage licenses.” Whitcomb introduced the word to allow those with traditional religious values to continue to have one word for the traditional marriage union, rather than have to use a phrase like “husband-wife marriage.” The verb is “admeve,” pronounced uhd-‘meev.

In the last week of June, 2013, the United State Supreme Court made two judgments related to gender in marriage. The first overthrew the federal marriage law; the second refused to make a decision about California’s Proposition 8, stating that the defenders of that law did not have authority to bring up the case before the Supreme Court. Contrary to what some news media may have reported, the Supreme Court did not side with Judge Walker in declaring Proposition 8 unconstitutional.

Adahmeve Marriage

The word “adahmeve” allows us to refer to the husband-wife marriage in one word. The word “marriage” is becoming polluted by the alternate meaning of same-sex government-authorized unions . . .
