Carbon dating flaws seal
They ignore evidence that does not fit their preconceived notion.
What would happen if a dinosaur bone were carbon dated?
Scientists at the Lamont-Doherty Geological Laboratory of Columbia University at Palisades, N.
Y., reported today in the British journal Nature that some estimates of age based on carbon analyses were wrong by as much as 3,500 years.
Are you a Christian who believes in young earth creationism?
Now that we have shown the many difficulties of the young earth creation science model in this and many other articles, how does this impact your Christian life?
For example, several of Comfort's sources address the religiosity of Albert Einstein or try to prove the historicity or credibility of the Bible.
The arguments presented by these sources (even if they were correct) do not have any relevance whatsoever to cellular biology or the theory of evolution.
Radiocarbon or C14 dating employs complex systems of measuring the unstable isotopes in once living matter.
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).
There are three forms of carbon that naturally occur forming the building blocks of all plant and animal life.
The stable C12 and C13, and the unstable or radioactive Carbon 14. Only one C14 atom exists for every one trillion C12 atoms.
