After the AOGS-AGU conference in Singapore, the abstract was removed from the conference website by two chairmen because they could not accept the findings.
Carbon-14 is considered to be a highly reliable dating technique.
Senior research scientist Alexander Cherkinsky specializes in the preparation of samples for Carbon-14 testing.
Members of the Paleochronology group presented their findings at the 2012 Western Pacific Geophysics Meeting in Singapore, August 13-17, a conference of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS).
Since dinosaurs are thought to be over 65 million years old, the news is stunning - and more than some can tolerate.
She wrote back: Thanks for considering our service in this project.
We wish you well in your research but must choose to opt-out of the analysis.
Schweitzer herself wonders why these materials are preserved when all the models say they should be degraded.
That is, if they really are over 65 million years old, as the conventional wisdom says. A lone femur bone was excavated in 2004 in Cretaceous clay at 47 6 18N by 104 39 22W in Montana by the O. Miller team in 2005 to retrieve samples for C-14 testing. Collagen: Proteins that are the main component of connective tissue.
It's accuracy has been verified by using C-14 to date artifacts whose age is known historically.
The fluctuation of the amount of C-14 in the atmosphere over time adds a small uncertainty, but contamination by "modern carbon" such as decayed organic matter from soils poses a greater possibility for error. Thomas Seiler, a physicist from Germany, gave the presentation in Singapore.
This was news to him, and contradicted prior statements and documents from the university.
He is currently seeking relief in a legal action for wrongful termination and religious discrimination by California State University Northridge (CSUN).
Researchers have found a reason for the puzzling survival of soft tissue and collagen in dinosaur bones - the bones are younger than anyone ever guessed.
