This belief in long ages for the earth and the evolution of all life is based entirely on the hypothetical and non-empirical Theory of Evolution.
When scientists first began to compare carbon dating data to data from tree rings, they found carbon dating provided "too-young" estimates of artifact age.Scientists now realize that production of carbon-14 has not been constant over the years, but has changed as the radiation from the sun has fluctuated.Nuclear tests, nuclear reactors and the use of nuclear weapons have also changed the composition of radioisotopes in the air over the last few decades.This human nuclear activity will make precise dating of fossils from our lifetime very difficult due to contamination of the normal radioisotope composition of the earth with addition artificially produced radioactive atoms.These isotopes have longer half-lives and so are found in greater abundance in older fossils.
Some of these other isotopes include: back to the last global catastrophe (i.e.
As stated previously, carbon dating cannot be used on artifacts over about 50,000 years old.
These artifacts have gone through many carbon-14 half-lives, and the amount of carbon-14 remaining in them is miniscule and very difficult to detect.
Writings in this book discuss radiocarbon dating in historical perspective.
The application of the 14C method to archaeology materials are considered to be watershed in prehistoric studies. Libby delivered a public lecture which was describing basic validity of the 14C method, and since that time, the method has been the subject of long-term study.
the global Flood of 2,348 BC) as global catastrophes reset all the radiometric/atomic “clocks” by invalidating the evolutionist’s main dating assumption that there have never been any global catastrophes.
