Creation science and carbon dating Socialsex netzwerk chat
After all, this what the archeologist guessed in their published books.Some believe trees are known to be as old as 9,000 years. A lot of people doubt this claim for various good reasons I wont go into here.Dates up to this point in history are well documented for C14 calibration.For object over 4,000 years old the method becomes very unreliable for the following reason: Objects older then 4,000 years run into a problem in that there are few if any known artifacts to be used as the standard.Plants absorb that carbon through photosynthesis, and animals via plants.When they die, however, the radioactive carbon decays at a known rate.Radiocarbon dating is relatively easy to visualize and understand on a basic level, unlike many other methods in geochronology.
Carbon has unique properties that are essential for life on Earth.
Measuring the ratio of radioactive to stable carbon, we can estimate the age of carbon-bearing samples.
On the other hand, the technical details of radiocarbon analysis are difficult to understand.
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.
It makes no sense at all if man appeared at the end of billions of years.
Familiar to us as the black substance in charred wood, as diamonds, and the graphite in “lead” pencils, carbon comes in several forms, or isotopes.
