Carbon 14 dating of fossils

Dinosaurs supposedly died out 65 million years ago. Carbon-14 dating was recently performed on dinosaur fossils,1 and the results were presented at the Western Geophysics Meeting in Singapore, August 2012, a gathering of approximately two thousand scientists.1 The carbon-14 dating involved precautions against contamination.Several tests were done by the University of Georgia using accelerator mass spectrometry.Scientists have done studies which suggest that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, but those dates were not arrived at by use of carbon-14 dating methods.

You will see presentation 5 is missing between 4 and 6.The carbon-14 decays at a known rate, but since it is being replenished while the animal is alive, only after the animal dies is no carbon-14 added.Of course, this assumes that carbon-14 is not inadvertently added to the dead animal’s remains.Below is a list of some dinosaur fossils and their dated ages from the Miller paper.Are the dates beyond the range of testing technology?

If the accepted ages of millions of years for dinosaurs were to be found to be in error, this would be a problem to evolution.
