So if scientists believe that a creature lived millions of years ago, then they would need to date it another way. They assume dinosaurs lived millions of years ago (instead of thousands of years ago like the bible says).

They ignore evidence that does not fit their preconceived notion.

The age they came back with was only a few thousand years old. And kept their theory that dinosaurs lived "millions of years ago" instead. They then use potassium argon, or other methods, and date the fossils again.

This date did not fit the preconceived notion that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. They do this many times, using a different dating method each time.

"The rock question is fairly simple and has to do with the basic elements which made up these rocks in the beginning.

16.000 years by the way is still 10,000 years before your God supposedly created the Earth." Amy M 12/11/01 My response: I explain the limits of Carbon dating below.

One thing you might want to ask yourself though, is how do you know it is millions of years old, giving an "incorrect" date (one that you think is too young) or if it actually is only a few thousand years old.

Many people are under the false impression that carbon dating proves that dinosaurs and other extinct animals lived millions of years ago.

What many do not realize is that carbon dating is not used to date dinosaurs. Carbon dating is only accurate back a few thousand years.
