The new facility is the second-largest dinosaur museum in the state, dwarfed only by the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman."We are totally different from the Museum of the Rockies in that we present fossils and all the exhibits in the context of biblical creation," said Otis E. Lafferty, Dispatch Science Reporter A Columbus creation science group says Soviet tests confirm dinosaurs and humans were contemporaries as recently as 10,000 years ago, some 66 million years after dinosaurs were supposedly eliminated in a mass extinction.

This is then incorporated into plants by photosynthesis, and animals acquire 14C by eating the plants.
When the animal or plant dies, it stops exchanging carbon with its environment, and from that point the amount of 14C it contains begins to reduce as the 14C undergoes radioactive decay.
Ivanov, a researcher at Moscow State University, used a technique called laser mass spectroscopy, which measures small quantities of chemicals, to analyze samples of the bones. The press release comes out in November 1991 discussing the discoveries of "Soviet scientists". This suggests to me that someone, observing the soviet union starting to dissolve, has timed the press release so that no one can check the source. Laser Mass Spectrography is only one step in carbon dating.
It is the ratio between the isotopes C-12 and C-14 that defines the age.
Measuring the amount of 14C in a sample from a dead plant or animal such as piece of old wood or a fragment of bone provides information that can be used to calculate when the animal or plant died.
The oldest dates that can be reliably measured by radiocarbon dating are around 50,000 years ago, though special preparation methods occasionally permit dating of older samples.

Since 2003, he has served as the Director of the Van Andel Creation Research Center for the Creation Research Society. He is also presently the Editor-in-chief of the Creation Research Society Quarterly. One of his main areas of research has been the molecular analysis of bacterial interactions and molecular genetics.
