Please understand that carbon-dating has NOTHING to do with dinosaurs.

The limit to carbon dating is 50,000 years, since carbon-14 decays with a

rapid half-life of 5,000 years. Thus, there is no way to get numbers like

65 million years (which is what evolutionists tell you about dinosaurs)

from carbon-dating.

These numbers related to dinosaurs come from a mixture of potassium-argon

dating and assumptions about the geological column. Potassium-argon

dating can only be used to date lava flows. Thus, geologists find two

lava flows, date them with potassium-argon, and then assume that any

fossil- bearing rocks between them must have formed between the two

potassium- argon dates.

Potassium-argon dating, however is fraught with error. Here is a good

summary of the problems:
