Sexchat rooms anonymous - Creationist carbon dating
For some reason, which I have not yet figured out, at least one person per week has been asking me about the Carbon-14 Radiometric Dating Technique.
They want to know if it is accurate or if it works at all.
They all start with similar flaws, but Carbon-14 has more than the rest.
Radiocarbon dating can only reliably date things that are less than 3,000 years old. High above your head, cosmic rays are striking nitrogen-14 atoms and changing them into radioactive carbon-14 atoms.
That carbon eventually finds its way into your food and becomes part of you. Researchers measure the carbon-14 that remains in something that was once alive to determine how old it is.
In short, carbon dating cannot possibly tell us anything contrary to the Bible, and it seems to support the Bible's account of Earth's history.
The design of the human body inspires awe and fascination.
The process of sample preparation and analysis depends on the technique (gas proportional counting, liquid scintillation, or accelerator mass spectrometry, for example), of which each has its own limitations and potential for error and uncertainty.
