‘Carbon-14-dated dinosaur bones less than 40,000 years old’ report scrapped from conference website

Carbon-14-dated dinosaur bones are less than 40,000 years old. 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.  Carbon-14 (C-14) dating of multiple samples of bone from 8 dinosaurs found in Texas, Alaska, Colorado, and Montana revealed that they are only 22,000 to 39,000 years old.

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.  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.  Unwilling to challenge the data openly, they erased the report from public view without a word to the authors.  When the authors inquired, they received this letter:

“There is obviously an error in these data. The abstract was apparently noot reviewed properly and was accepted in error. For this reason  we have exercised our authority as program chairs and rescinded the abstract .. will no longer appear on the AOGS web site.” Minhan Dai & Peter Swart.

They did not look at the data and they never spoke with the researchers.  They did not like the test results, so they censored them. Continue reading ‘Carbon-14-dated dinosaur bones less than 40,000 years old’ report scrapped from conference website

Why & How Did Earth’s Pangaea’s Crust Crack! An Ancient Mystery Solved?

The early Earth, we can safely assume, did not start out cracked like this egg from its pristine beginnings.

Scientists now agree that the early Earth featured just one original continent named ‘Pangaea’, reminiscent of Chinese history’s ‘Panku.’ Historians and geologists have no clue what actually hit the Earth’s crust, or how the upper layer of 8 km thick oceanic crust and 35-60 km continental crust got cracked, nor why its fragments or plates then began to drift apart from each other, other than labeling it ‘plate tectonics & subduction’. That’s about as good an explanation as blaming “why there are murders” on “violence.” It does not explain what cracked ‘Pangaea’ in the first place, which would also indicate the real cause of why the continents drifted apart!

This article aims to try to solve this foundational mystery: “Why and how did Pangaea’s crust crack!”
