However, for the last 3,500 years, the increase in the ratio has been extremely slight.
Radiocarbon dating of vertical sequences of organic-rich layers at 714 locations worldwide has consistently shown a surprising result.
Half of it will decay in about 5,730 years to form nitrogen.
Half of the remainder will decay in another 5,730 years, and so on.
As our knowledge continues to grow, what we know continues to be in agreement with Scripture.
Radiocarbon ages less than 3,500 years old are probably accurate.
If that ratio quadrupled, organic remains would appear 11,460 (2 x 5,730) years older, etc.However, before accepting any radiocarbon date, one should know how the technique works, its limitations, and its assumptions.One limitation is that the radiocarbon technique dates only material that was once part of an animal or plant, such as bones, flesh, or wood. To understand the other capabilities and limitations of radiocarbon dating, we must understand how it works and consider the flood. However, roughly one in a trillion carbon atoms weighs 14 atomic units. It is also called radio carbon because it is radio active (but not dangerous).Until recent years, scientists who believe in creation haven't had the necessary resources to explore radiometric dating in detail.
A 10 gram sample of U-238Now that has changed, and some important discoveries are being made.The samples were from a mile below the earth, which, according to inflated evolutionary years, were 1.5 billion years old.
