I have documentation of an Allosaurus bone that was sent to The University of Arizona to be carbon dated. We didn’t tell them that the bones they were dating were dinosaur bones. The result was sample B at 16,120 years. The Allosaurus dinosaur was supposed to be around 140,000,000 years. The samples of bone were blind samples. Of course carbon dating isn’t going to work on your Allosaurus bone. That method is only accurate to 40,000 years.

So I would expect to get some weird number like 16,000 years if you carbon date a millions of years old fossil. 000 years by the way is still 10,000 years before your God supposedly created the Earth. I explain the limits of Carbon dating below. As far as your comments that 16,000 years is older than when God created the earth, we know that there is more carbon in the atmosphere than there was a thousand years ago. So a date of 9,000 or 16,000 years is more likely to be less. Carbon dating is a good dating tool for some things that we know the relative date of. Something that is 300 years old for example.
