Even under ideal condition proteins should degrade if for no other reason then unavoidable background radiation into nothing resembling a protein in less thant longer then 100000 year at most. so by this chemical clock we can be sure the real age of dinosaur is younger then that! We already should have known that C14 dateing of dinosaurs give us dates where no measurable c14 should more at
