Carbon 14 radioactive dating technique

25 Sep

Virtually all fossils found within sedimentary rocks are the remains of creatures that perished during the Genesis Flood about 4,500 years ago.Yet a skeptic might point out that the amounts of C found in these organic samples are smaller than what one might expect if they are only about 4,500 years old.

Because these radioisotope methods yield age estimates of many millions of years for igneous rocks, it is thought that sedimentary rocks are also millions of years old, as well as the organic remains found within them.

If the scientist did not realize that the pre-Flood C/C ratio was hundreds of times smaller than today’s value, he would calculate the animal’s age to be approximately 9 × 5,730 years = 51,570 years old—even though it had just died!

Of course, he would realize that this age was nonsense, because he saw the fresh carcass.

And a radiocarbon result that contradicts old-earth dogma is not a good enough reason by itself to invoke contamination!

Assumptions…Assumptions Instead of arbitrarily blaming these anomalous results on contamination, a far better (and more scientific) approach would be to question the correctness of the assumptions behind radioisotope dating methods.
