Chat with horny sluts no credit card needed - There errors carbon dating
Consequently organisms living there dated by C14 give ages much older than their true age.
A lake Bonney seal known to have died only a few weeks before was carbon dated.
Let's say initially every radioactive element was "exploded" into existence from pre-existent elements.
As far as your comments that 16,000 years is older than when God created the earth, we know that there is more carbon in the atmosphere than there was a thousand years ago. It is somewhat accurate back to a few thousand years, but carbon dating is not accurate past this. However, this does not mean that the earth is 30 thousand years old. Because of the earths declining magnetic field, more radiation (which forms C14) is allowed into the earths atmosphere.
So a date of 9,000 or 16,000 years is more likely to be less. Carbon dating is a good dating tool for some things that we know the relative date of. Willard Libby (December 17, 1908 September 8, 1980) and his colleagues discovered the technique of radiocarbon dating in 1949.
However each time they test it, they find more c14 in the atmosphere, and have realized that we are only 1/3 the way to equilibrium.
Since carbon dating measures the amount of carbon still in a fossil, then the date given is not accurate.
As time progressed each would begin to acquire its slower modern-day stable half-life, but would they all acquire these stable rates in a uniformity which would keep them all in synchrony? If they did, all would give the same ages, you are right.
