Creationists carbon dating wrong
By measuring the ratio of the radio isotope to non-radioactive carbon, the amount of carbon-14 decay can be worked out, thereby giving an age for the specimen in question.But that assumes that the amount of carbon-14 in the atmosphere was constant — any variation would speed up or slow down the clock.After two half lives, a quarter is left; after three half lives, only an eighth; after 10 half lives, less than a thousandth is left.Diamond is the hardest substance known, so its interior should be very resistant to contamination.Various geologic, atmospheric and solar processes can influence atmospheric carbon-14 levels.Since the 1960s, scientists have started accounting for the variations by calibrating the clock against the known ages of tree rings.
Dr Baumgardner repeated this with six more alluvial diamonds from Namibia, and these had even more radiocarbon.
The presence of radiocarbon in these diamonds where there should be none is thus sparkling evidence for a ‘young’ world, as the Bible records. wrote: “I just wanted to drop a note to express my gratitude for the kind of information you supply at the CMI web-site.
I love science and find it thrilling to see how it may be used to glorify God and build faith in Him.” Glorify God in His creation.
According to evolutionists, the diamonds formed about 1–3 billion years ago.
C at all if they really were over a billion years old, yet the radiocarbon lab reported that there was over 10 times the detection limit.
