Carbon dating problem


05-Oct-2018 02:01

Many people are under the false impression that carbon dating proves that dinosaurs and other extinct animals lived millions of years ago.

What many do not realize is that carbon dating is not used to date dinosaurs. Carbon dating is only accurate back a few thousand years.

So if scientists believe that a creature lived millions of years ago, then they would need to date it another way. They assume dinosaurs lived millions of years ago (instead of thousands of years ago like the bible says).

They ignore evidence that does not fit their preconceived notion.

The samples of bone were blind samples.""Of course carbon dating isn't going to work on your Allosaurus bone. So I would expect to get some weird number like 16,000 years if you carbon date a millions of years old fossil.

16.000 years by the way is still 10,000 years before your God supposedly created the Earth." Amy M 12/11/01 My response: I explain the limits of Carbon dating below.



May 20, 2014. At least to the uninitiated, carbon dating is generally assumed to be a sure-fire way to predict the age of any organism that once lived on our planet. Click to read more. So what's the Problem? Unfortunately, the believed amount of carbon present at the time of expiration is exactly that a belief.… continue reading »

Feb 7, 2013. Though it's biggest, the calibration problem is not the only flaw of radiocarbon dating. As the lecture detailed, it is only accurate from about 62,000 years ago to 1,200 A. D. There is a sizable amount of time before and after that period that cannot be investigated using this method. Also, archaeologists cannot.… continue reading »

The air. Thus, a freshly killed mussel has far less C-14 than a freshly killed something else, which is why the C-14 dating method makes freshwater mussels seem older than they really are. When dating wood there is no such problem because wood gets its carbon straight from the air, complete with a full dose of C-14.… continue reading »

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. Libby, the discoverer of the C14 dating method, was very disappointed with this problem. He understood that.… continue reading »

Mar 29, 2010. If you have a fossil, you can tell how old it is by the carbon 14 dating method. This is a formula which helps you to date a fossil by its carbon. If a fossil contains 60% of its original carbon, how old is the fossil? The half life of carbon 14 is 5600 years. That means this is how long it takes for half the nuclei to.… continue reading »
