- “The two Colorado Creek, AK mammoths had radiocarbon ages of 22,850 plus or minus 670 and 16,150 plus or minus 230 years respectively.” (Robert M. thorson and R. Dale Guthrie, “Stratigraphy of the Colorado Creek Mammoth Locality, Alaska.” Quaternary Research, Vol. 37, No. 2, March 1992, pp. 214-228)
- The two mammoths came from different strata that was deposited at different times. As such organisms found in those different strata would be from different ages.
- If anything these mammoths are a point in favour of radiocarbon dating since the mammoth from the older strata was dated to be older. Two different techniques giving the same answer makes that answer more reliable.
