Carbon 14 dating inaccurate
It makes no sense at all if man appeared at the end of billions of years.
We will deal with carbon dating first and then with the other dating methods.
His theory was that all living creatures have a constant proportion of radioactive and non-radioactive carbons in their body because they keep absorbing these elements from the environment.
But as soon as the creature dies it stops absorbing these and sheds any trace of carbon-14 at a decay rate of 50 per cent every 5,700 years.
"The radiocarbon dating technique may significantly underestimate the age of sediment for samples older than 30,000 years,” said the authors of the report from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Germany’s Leibniz Institute for Applied Geophysics.
That is, they take up less than would be expected and so they test older than they really are.
The rate of decay of N in 5,730 years (plus or minus 40 years).
This is the “half-life.” So, in two half-lives, or 11,460 years, only one-quarter of that in living organisms at present, then it has a theoretical age of 11,460 years.
Their work was detailed in a paper in the latest issue of the journal .
For over 50 years, scientists and researchers have relied on carbon dating to find the exact age of organic matter.
"But the method should be limited to young samples, and more efforts should be made to improve its accuracy," he added.
