I'd love to know more about this anecdotal story. If true, it would certainly cast doubt on the competence of the scientists in question, or even *possibly* on the validity of the methods used to date the bones (I repeat, *IF* this account is accurate).
Of course, it is also possible that this account leaves out some important details; if anyone knows the source article to which she refers, please provide a link.

I agree that this story, if true, would cast doubt on the competence of the scientists in question.
However, this is Heidi we're talking about. I'd be a little suprised to find that any of this story WASN'T made up, or at least ass-backwards.

Considering she has stated she believes carbon dating is used for dating things millions of years old, I would have to say this is bullshit.

The Last Conformist
Scientists dated *human* bones in the Mojave desert to millions of years old? If any vaguely respectable scientist had done that I think we'd heard a bit more about it.

I think her husband was reading the Weekly World News... or a Cornflakes box.

It's hard to make an unambiguous set of words to Google for, to try to find the news story without a huge amount of junk. But \"Mohave bones million DNA uncle\" (sans quote marks) turns up nothing.

Notice the that the creationist \"stories/evidence\" of scientist mistakes are almost always hearsay and never sourced?
12/20/2005 6:24:36 PM
ah, Heidi. She never disappoints.

I wonder if Heidi's husband knows about her fetish for red hot monkey sex...
(I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I couldn't resist. I'll make my next comment of a little more substance.)

It's OK to lie for Jeeezus.

And then the scientist's jaw dropped and he ran out of the laboratory!
12/21/2005 6:36:32 PM
And I take it you can't reproduce this article, or tell us where it was printed?

Humans were never on the North American continent until thousands of years ago you lying bitch.

Oh, hang on it's Heidi. No, not facsinating, just a pack of lies.
