Carbon 14 dating coal
5) Therefore, the oldest dates possible by radiocarbon dating of approximately 50,000 years are inflated by a scale of 10 because the use of modern ratios of C does not reflect the historical reality of ratios in the pre-flood world.This means that radiocarbon dating actually proves the fossils are 5,000 years old, not 50,000.3) Because all life existed at the same time, more organic carbon was present before the flood than after.4) Since there was more carbon overall, but not more C to carbon-12 was much smaller than it is today.The logic for the theory is as follows: 1) The Bible reveals the age of the earth to be somewhere around 6,000 years.2) Since the earth is only 6,000 years old, the entire group of life forms represented in the fossil record (save the most recent fossils) existed at the same time and were all buried together in the world-wide biblical flood.Since then, the technique has been widely used and continually improved.
A small portion of the sample is put into the machine which then vaporizes it.
The use of carbon-14, also known as radiocarbon, to date organic materials has been an important method in both archaeology and geology.
The technique was pioneered over fifty years ago by the physical chemist Willard Libby, who won the 1960 Nobel Prize for his work on C.
In conjunction with other creationist organizations, the Institute for Creation Research has assembled a team of researchers to challenge existing notions about the age of the Earth.
The RATE team (Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth) have studied a variety of subjects pertaining to the age of the Earth including radiocarbon dating.
