Carbon dating bible
You can find some further good information here: -- read the full page if you get the chance.Many people are under the false impression that carbon dating proves that dinosaurs and other extinct animals lived millions of years ago.If something carbon dates at 7,000 years we believe 5,000 is probably closer to reality (just before the flood).Robert Whitelaw has done a very good job illustrating this theory using about 30,000 dates published in Radio Carbon over the last 40 years.- At Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Scientists dated dinosaur bones using the Carbon dating method.The age they came back with was only a few thousand years old. And kept their theory that dinosaurs lived "millions of years ago" instead. They then use potassium argon, or other methods, and date the fossils again.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.
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.
This date did not fit the preconceived notion that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. They do this many times, using a different dating method each time.
The results can be as much as 150 million years different from each other! They then pick the date they like best, based upon their preconceived notion of how old their theory says the fossil should be .
And this big sequence is then used to 'correct' C14 dates. (3.) Even if the rate of decay is constant, without a knowledge of the exact ratio of C12 to C14 in the initial sample, the dating technique is still subject to question.
(4.) Traditional 14C testing assumes equilibrium in the rate of formation and the rate of decay.
