I notice from the show that the intent of this carbon dating of dino fossils does not appear to be to produce anything to engage the scientific community, but is rather to produce yet another video for the layperson.
You'd think that if the evidence was so good, these creationists would be able to make it stand in scientific terms but no, all we get is more propaganda.
And I'm having some problems considering Bob Enyart as a reliable source of information on this topic, after I heard him delightedly describing the Schweitzer samples of T-Rex soft materials on his show as looking like fresh meat on a butcher's slab. The reality, of course, was far from Bob's version, as the fragmentary proteins that were actually retrieved clearly demonstrated.
So color me extremely skeptical of scientific claims made by Bob Enyart. Particularly his "oh no, get your own dirt" comments regarding the use of existing fatty acids to make a primitive membrane for lab-created wet life.
Apparently, Bob may not know that a lot of fatty acids aren't hugely complex. They're not a major challenge to synthesize, and they do occur in nature in organic chemistry that doesn't require a lifeform. Heck, that was one of the first wins in organic chemistry, back in the 19th Century.
"Simple amphiphilic molecules have been found in meteorites and have been generated under a wide variety of conditions in the laboratory, ranging from simulated ultraviolet irradiation of interstellar ice particles to hydrothermal processing under simulated early Earth conditions."
Quote from Science Week.
Worse still for Bob's argument, if this artificial life is actually synthesized, the expectation is to use evolutionary processes to start selecting for more viable structures. Once it's been done once, different labs will begin testing different pathways until one or more viable routes using naturally occurring processes will be sketched out. And then, there's a pathway for non-divine life on earth.
Which then pushes the seriously contested ground for theism all the way back to the start of the universe, where it will stay uncontested for the foreseeable future. So don't worry, theists, there's still room for you in this big old universe.
