Carbon 14 and potassium argon dating methods updating google autofill
The samples of bone were blind samples.""Of course carbon dating isn't going to work on your Allosaurus bone. So I would expect to get some weird number like 16,000 years if you carbon date a millions of years old fossil.16.000 years by the way is still 10,000 years before your God supposedly created the Earth." Amy M 12/11/01 My response: I explain the limits of Carbon dating below.One thing you might want to ask yourself though, is how do you know it is millions of years old, giving an "incorrect" date (one that you think is too young) or if it actually is only a few thousand years old.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.
When each of these elements, uranium, potassium, radium etc.
Each would probably arrive at equilibrium at different times.
Look at biological breakdown everywhere, it proceeds at different rates.
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).
None of these early faster half-lives would be the same as they are today.
