Carbon dating flaws wikipedia
Andrew Kulikovsky spoke on one occasion and John Hartnett spoke on 2 occasions. About half those who are on the committee are YECs and the others doubt the YEC position to various degrees.
Jim raised some interesting points but I don’t believe that he addressed the central points that Justin raised.
After about 60,000 years the quantity will be too small for our instruments to measure accurately, and the best we'll be able to say is that the sample is about 60,000 years old or more.
For this reason radiocarbon dating is of more interest to archaeologists than to geologists.
"No matter how 'useful' it is, though, the radiocarbon method is still not capable of yielding accurate and reliable results.
There are gross discrepancies, the chronology is uneven and relative, and the accepted dates are actually selected dates.
Last year we held a number of meetings on the young/old earth issue and gave YECs numerous opportunities to speak.
I have read studies, papers and more, showing that Carbon-Dating can have an error rate of 200% Here are just a few extracts from science journal that got my attention.
"The lower leg lower leg of the Fairbanks Creek mammoth had a radiocarbon age of 15,380 RCY, while its skin and flesh were 21,300 RCY." (Natural History 1949) 'Living mollusk shell were carbon dated as being 2,300 years old.' (Science 1963) 'A freshly killed seal was carbon dated as having died 1,300 years ago' (Antarctic Journal 1971) "One part of Dima (a baby frozen mammoth) was 40,000, another part was 26,000 and the 'wood immediately around the carcass' was 9-10,000." (Geological Survey Professional Paper 862 1975) 'Shells from living snails were carbon dated as being 27,000 years old.' (Science 1984) "The two Colorado Creek, AK mammoths had radiocarbon ages of 22,850 ±670 and 16,150 ±230 years respectively." (Quaternary Research 1992) "One part of the Vollosovitch mammoth carbon dated at 29,500 years old and another part at 44,000." (Geological Survey Professional Paper 862 1975) And one of my favorite extracts.
In the case of OCR dating, the variable that is changing with time is the ratio of oxidizable carbon to organic carbon.
On earth, carbon is continually recycled by biological processes.
