All contained radiocarbon.2 Further, analyses of fossilized wood and coal samples, supposedly spanning 32–350 million years in age, yielded ages between 20,000 and 50,000 years using carbon-14 dating.3 Diamonds supposedly 1–3 billion years old similarly yielded carbon-14 ages of only 55,000 years.4 A sea creature, called an ammonite, was discovered near Redding, California, accompanied by fossilized wood.
Both fossils are claimed by strata dating to be 112–120 million years old but yielded radiocarbon ages of only thousands of years.
Yet carbon-14 has been detected in “ancient” fossils—supposedly up to hundreds of millions of years old—ever since the earliest days of radiocarbon dating.1 Even if every atom in the whole earth were carbon-14, they would decay so quickly that no carbon-14 would be left on earth after only 1 million years.
Contrary to expectations, between 19 alone, the scientific literature reported carbon-14 in 70 samples that came from fossils, coal, oil, natural gas, and marble representing the fossil-bearing portion of the geologic record, supposedly spanning more than 500 million years.
Tiger Woods' ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, appears to be back together with her former beau Chris Cline.
The Swedish former model was spotted cozying up to the coal tycoon billionaire in St.
) is only 5,730 years—that is, every 5,730 years, half of it decays away.
So the radiocarbon ages of all fossils and coal should be reduced to less than 5,000 years, matching the timing of their burial during the Flood.We both know that the most important things in our lives are our kids.I wish I would have known that back then," he told Time magazine in December.Beyond that timespan, the amount of the original C formed by irradiation of nitrogen by neutrons from the spontaneous fission of uranium, present in trace quantities almost everywhere.For these samples, other dating methods must be used.These include the starting conditions, the constancy of the rate of decay, and that no material has left or entered the sample.Furthermore, if a sample has been contaminated, scientists will know about it.A resident of Vladivostok, which is sandwiched between China, North Korea, and the Sea of Japan, was adding ordinary coal to a fire when he noticed a shiny metal object peeking through a piece of the friable black rock.The portion that protruded looked suspiciously manmade, so he investigated by enlisting the help of nearby scientists.A favorite tactic of Young-Earthers involves citing studies which show trace amounts of Indeed, this results from a unique decay mode known as "cluster decay" where a given isotope emits a particle heavier than an alpha particle (radium-226 is an example.) This fact is extremely inconvenient and creationist literature, accordingly, usually does not mention it.Carbon-dating Carbon dating, like other radiometric dating methods, requires certain assumptions that cannot be scientifically proved.
