Consequently, we are no longer able to provide radiocarbon services in support of your anti-scientific agenda.

I have instructed the Radiocarbon Laboratory to return your recent samples to you and to not accept any future samples for analysis."Notice that he did not say the radiocarbon reports of the dinosaur bone samples were inaccurate.

So when he received another bone sample from the Paleochronology group, he returned it to sender and sent an email saying: "I have recently become aware of the work that you and your team have been conducting with respect to radiocarbon dating of bone.

The scientists at CAIS and I are dismayed by the claims that you and your team have made with respect to the age of the Earth and the validity of biological evolution.

Dinosaur bones with Carbon-14 dates in the range of 22,000 to 39,000 years before present, combined with the discovery of soft tissue in dinosaur bones, indicate that something is indeed wrong with the conventional wisdom about dinosaurs. Kline team of the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum. Triceratops #2, a very large ceratopsid-type dinosaur excavated in 2007 in Cretaceous clay at 47 02 44N and 104 32 49W in Montana by the O. Outer bone fragments of a femur were tested for C-14. Scrapings were taken from a rib still imbedded in the clay soil of a ranch in CO, partially excavated in 20, in 150 Ma (late Jurassic) strata by C. It can be as high as 20% in normal bone but decomposes over time so that there should be none after ~100,000 years.

However, it has been hard to reach the public with the information. Yet it is found in four-foot long, nine-inch diameter dinosaur femur bones claimed to be greater than 65 million years old.

Since dinosaurs are thought to be over 65 million years old, the news is stunning - and more than some can tolerate.

Critics charged that the findings were mistaken or that what she called soft tissue was really biofilm produced by bacteria that had entered from outside the bone.

Schweitzer answered the challenge by testing with antibodies.

Mark was suddenly terminated by the Biology Department when his discovery of soft tissues in a Triceratops horn was published in Acta Histochemica.

The university claimed his appointment at had been temporary and claimed a lack of funding for the position.

Knowing that small concentrations of collagen can attract contamination, they compared precision Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) tests of collagen and bioapatite (hard carbonate bone mineral) with conventional counting methods of large bone fragments from the same dinosaurs. Mary Schweitzer, associate professor of marine, earth, and atmospheric sciences at North Carolina State University, surprised scientists in 2005 when she reported finding soft tissue in dinosaur bones.
