But in 2014, someone told the director of the facility, Jeff Speakman, that the Paleochronology group was showing the Carbon-14 reports on a website and You Tube and drawing the obvious conclusions.So when he received another bone sample from the Paleochronology group, he returned it to sender and sent an email saying: "I have recently become aware of the work that you and your team have been conducting with respect to radiocarbon dating of bone.The scientists at CAIS and I are dismayed by the claims that you and your team have made with respect to the age of the Earth and the validity of biological evolution.
Senior research scientist Alexander Cherkinsky specializes in the preparation of samples for Carbon-14 testing.I have instructed the Radiocarbon Laboratory to return your recent samples to you and to not accept any future samples for analysis."Notice that he did not say the radiocarbon reports of the dinosaur bone samples were inaccurate.No, his objection was that the Paleochronology group was using the reports as evidence that dinosaurs lived thousands, not millions, of years ago. A manager of a commercial laboratory that does Carbon-14 dating, Beta Analytic Inc., reviewed a poster display of the dinosaur data and discussed it with a member of the Paleochronology group.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.
