Dinosaur Soft Tissue Contains Carbon 14 and Mostly Left-Handed Amino Acids: As you view the exciting scientific discoveries below, please feel free to listen to Real Science Friday co-hosts Fred Williams and Bob Enyart observe their annual tradition of talking about the dinosaur soft-tissue finds and so many other related wonderful discoveries. And make sure to view the list and excerpts below of the web's most complete report on the peer-reviewed dinosaur soft-tissue research!

And evolution denier and an evagelist Nice people to talk science with. I'm going to go out on a ledge and say that the info about the veins and tendons is refutted by all other paleontologists.

FYI carbon 14 is a useless measure for anything older than 40k year old. Doing that measurement and getting any result on a scecimen that is known to be more than 40k years old makes it an invalid test.

Uranium isotope is a better and standard measure of ancient fossils. Creationist know this but insist on muddling facts.

Robert,
Its a very long article, i just read the first few paragraphs. Its interesting!

Robert do you take the young-earth view that the whole planet earth is only a few thousand years old?
Do you think the whole planet is 6,000 years old?
Do you think God created the dinosaurs in the last 6,000 years?

What is your position? Speak freely Robert, i'm not going to attack you. But i will debate it with you. I think that only the human beings are 6,000 years old, not all the fossilised creatures in the rocks. I think the fossils are from a completely different epoch that God did NOT discuss in the Bible.

John.

Before everyone goes rushing off with half baked ideas, just what is this Bellarmine report thing? Never heard of it! It's obviously a religious fanatics site and not to be taken seriously, like a lot of things around here.

Quoting skildude here - is science ever meant to be "boring"?

"Boring" - no. Peer-reviewed and accepted - yes.

The Bellarmine Report is a controversial American apostolate, in conflict with some of the Catholic hierarchy

There you go, I rest my case.

Quite right John, most are over heated, and you cook the books to perfection to represent your latest theories.

It has now been proven to my satisfaction that Neo-Darwinism is false. THANK YOU!


It's easy to prove your bias when you find the data that fits your conclusion. Gee, ain't science fun when there's so many different hypotheses (and a lot of bad science) to choose from!

And you are researching and looking for signals from UFO's, not to forget.

As far as I know you never have received any intelligent signals from such things.

Is this research field meant to be science at all - or is it just hype everything?

Please advice me.

Thanks!

Yes, I am using my computer to find data that ETI exists. I haven't started with the assumption that ETI exists or does not exist. That's what science is all about.

The problem is that you may not be able to separate or differentiate bad or poor numbers from good or better ones.

Blame users like me (who is not supposed to understand anything).

The problem is you have no idea what you're talking about and most people don't bother responding to you (in case you haven't noticed).

In my opinion, one doesn't have to be able to present "The Correct Solution" to a scientific problem in order to identify an incorrect or flawed solution.

Prejudice and ad hominem attacks is not an argument.


So why did you create this thread with that title?

Prejudice (Theory) vs Science(Hard Evidence) - So if prejudice is not an argument, Science wins by default!
