Consequently organisms living there dated by C14 give ages much older than their true age.A lake Bonney seal known to have died only a few weeks before was carbon dated.What would happen if a dinosaur bone were carbon dated?- At Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Scientists dated dinosaur bones using the Carbon dating method.The results can be as much as 150 million years different from each other! They then pick the date they like best, based upon their preconceived notion of how old their theory says the fossil should be .So they start with the assumption that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago, then manipulate the results until they agree with their conclusion.

When each of these elements, uranium, potassium, radium etc.
were switched on, it would only be natural for them to behave according to their individual properties, eventually acquiring stable half-lives of decay, at different rates.
Libbey knew that atmospheric carbon would reach equilibrium in 30,000 years.
