Carbon dating objects
Clearly, such huge time periods cannot be fitted into the Bible without compromising what the Bible says about the goodness of God and the origin of sin, death and suffering—the reason Jesus came into the world (See Six Days? He said, This only makes sense with a time-line beginning with the creation week thousands of years ago.
Over the past six decades, the amount of radiocarbon in people or their remains depends heavily on when they were born or, more precisely, when their tissues were formed.
Forensic anthropologists at The University of Arizona took advantage of this fact in a recent study funded by NIJ.
Over time, carbon-14 decays radioactively and turns into nitrogen.
A living organism takes in both carbon-12 and carbon-14 from the environment in the same relative proportion that they existed naturally.
In contrast, from 1955 to 1963, atmospheric radiocarbon levels almost doubled.
