    I am aware that YECs make lots of similar claims, but these claims are not true. What has been reported by Mary Schweitzer and others is fossilized internal structures of bone. The original structure is preserved, but NOT the original tissue.

    Again, a reference from the scientific literature, please?

    Yes, YEC groups claim to have detected C-14 in dinosaur bone. But generally the samples were submitted deceptively, were not prepared properly, and the measurement backgrounds were underestimated. The radiocarbon that they detect is nothing more than sample contamination and measurement background.
