Given the initial amount of carbon-14, the decay rate, and the remaining amount of carbon-14 in a fossil, the length of time it would take for the initial amount of carbon-14 to decay to the amount measured as remaining in the fossil may be calculated.Carbon-14 decays with a half-life of about 5,730 years.However, the abstract of the Miller presentation was removed from the website for the conference.

The dinosaur dates reported below and discussed in the AOGS 2012 paper discussed throughout this article, included triceratops, hadrosaur, allosaurus, and acrocanthasaurs.
But, if they were not that old, merely thousands of years old, then carbon-14 dating applied to dinosaur fossils might detect some carbon-14 atoms. These findings about dinosaur fossils are just a piece of the evidence indicating assumed ages are perhaps mistaken.
Other pieces include carbon-14 in diamonds, other soft tissue found in dinosaur fossils, and evidence that conventional dating methods are inaccurate.
Special care was taken to prevent this kind of contamination. 10 Living animals take in carbon-14 on a regular basis.
After death, the animal no longer takes in any carbon-14 (nor any other kind of carbon).Carbon-14’s half-life is too short to measure dates over a million years ago.
