Can somebody please basically tell me why Jeff Bada made an error in his methodology for dating California skeletons using Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) back in 1983? He was the guy that came with a new way of dating fossils - Amino Acid dating. Here is the article:

With all due respect ( fully intended in an absolutely non-Woody Allen manner), faith24 is posing a very serious and earnest question. One which I am not equiped to answer. Please, someone who is able to answer his question, do so.
