[ RadSafe ] Dinosaur Bones

Yes, dinosaur bones use to contain (slightly) elevated concentrations of
radionuclides. Forget about Calcium - no naturally occurring radioactive
isotope, forget K-40 - all salts soluble and K-40 accumulates in muscle, not
in bones. Radon is a gas and escapes soon. What else? Radium and daughters
of course, because radium replaces calcium in bone tissue. I have "measured"
with a cheap dose rate meter dinosaur bones and petrified wood in a curio
shop in Moab. Both showed slightly elevated doserates. The shop used to have
years before my last visit a room full with a great collection of
instruments originally used for uranium prospecting, but everything was
removed to a barn to be kept. At least they did not dump them altogether!
I do not believe that extinction was by alien nuclear warheads: Where is the
plutonium or the enriched uranium?

Hope you are well. According to television (Ancient Aliens show)
Dinosaur bones are quite radioactive
(Calcium, K-40, Radon, what else???). Anybody ever count any??? What
were the radionuclides
They also suggest, possibly, that nuclear warheads were also a
possible mechanism for ending the dinosaur era. Wonder who nuked them????
guess some dinosaurs survived the bombing (birds, some reptiles, some
dinosaurs, Nessie (Loch Ness), Coelocanths etc.). I guess Ocean water
would be a
pretty good shield against nuclear blasts.
I guess other mechanisms for dinosaur destruction were
comets/asteroids, volcanoes, etc.
If nuclear bombing of the Earth did occur, then one wonders how
completely (by surface area) the Earth's surface was destroyed. Is the
layer observed worldwide rather continuous in extent and thickness, and
could it have been produced by nuclear warheads? Or is the Iridium layer
distribution more pointlike
(i.e. indicated by circular areas on the Earth's surface, i.e. kindof like
a Poisson Distribution???).
Maybe some of you can stop laughing/guffawing now. Time to get your
favorite Geiger counter or portable MultiChannel Analyzer and Germanium
detector and count some bones at your local museum.
One Ancient Alien Archeology site had traces of radioactivity, but the
buildings etc. were still standing.
Did someone have a neutron bomb way back when???? Of course, the Ancient
Alien shows never tell you the activity levels present or the radionuclides
which were present.
