Radiocarbon dating wood dating a man 10 years younger than me
Cosmic radiation striking the upper atmosphere converts about 21 pounds of nitrogen each year into radiocarbon (carbon-14).
Most carbon-14 quickly combines with oxygen to form radioactive carbon dioxide, which then spreads throughout the atmosphere.
This element is locked in tiny zircons within the granite. While it stays within the zircon for a period of time, being a very small atom, helium escapes the zircon within a few thousand years.
When creation scientists studied granite samples, they made interesting discoveries.
Outside the range of recorded history, calibration of the 14 clock is not possible.
This means the above calculations are only evolution speculation and NOT backed up by real science.
As our knowledge continues to grow, what we know continues to be in agreement with Scripture.
With less carbon-12 to dilute the carbon-14 continually forming from nitrogen in the upper atmosphere, the ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 in the atmosphere would increase.
When a living thing dies, its radiocarbon loss (decay) is no longer balanced by intake, so its radiocarbon steadily decreases with a half-life of 5,730 years.
If we knew the amount of carbon-14 in an organism when it died, we could attempt to date the time of death.
If the atmosphere's ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 has doubled since the flood and we did not know it, radiocarbon ages of things living soon after the flood would appear to be one half-life (or 5,730 years) older than their true ages.
If that ratio quadrupled, organic remains would appear 11,460 (2 x 5,730) years older, etc.Gen1Denying Evolution Evolution=Millions Of Years Your Imagination Creation Answers Book 20 Chapters (More than 60 of the most asked questions about Creation, evolution, and the book of Genesis answered!
