Not to pick on you specifically but I highly doubt the dating on finds such like this. Just like I doubt the distances given for galatic objects. Yeah I know they are grounded in science, but one has to wonder how accurate the science really is. How can you tell that some light arriving to our planet originates from say 100 light years away? Or that a certian carbon content means something is 95 million years old. I find it incredulous that science can spout out these numbers with a straight face.
How much credibility do you give to such dating?
The relationship between color and brightness was proven using the several thousand stars close enough to earth to have their distances measured directly.

How many dinos have they tested this on that are younger then 50.000 years , and are there inconsitencies in the messurements ?
Like a dino they tested had skeleton of 29.000 years and skin that was 45.000 years. ?? just asking caus it sounds non-reliable...
