It is not a matter of whether the science itself is faulty.
In other words, whether you assume that the planet is billions of years old or if you believe that the earth is thousands of years old, carbon dating still works in both situations.In several documented situations when carbon dating ran contrary to common scientific assumptions, the results were only an anomaly if the world were billions of years old.If the earth were thousands of years old, the results of these tests would have fit in perfectly. Since the former is radioactive and decays at a constant pace while the latter is stable, the ratio between the two can determine the age of anything that was on the earth and breathed.I’m going to go through this very quickly and touch on the basics; one could write a book on this topic and still have more to say. Once it stops breathing, it stops taking in C, scientists can use this to determine how long ago the creature leaving behind their remains had died.There are two major assumptions that are impossible to prove or disprove. Based upon the Big Bang theory as well as the theory of evolution, most scientists (and therefore the general public) believe that the universe and the world are billions of years old.
This assumption allows for C in the environment is mostly constant.
It was believed for two centuries that it was an absolute constant, but scientists have recently discovered that it fluctuates based upon several different factors.
Despite these fluctuations, they believe that it’s steady enough to still make the process work.
This is the biggest assumption that is challenged by many scientists today because C.
Since the amount of cosmic rays hitting these Nitrogen atoms is affected by the magnetic field of the earth and that field has been in a diminishing state since it was first observed in the mid-19th century, many scientists have a hard time assuming that the levels of If one were to adjust their assumptions and apply the Biblical telling of Creation, Carbon Dating still fits.
The reason that it fits is based upon the Flood of Noah. The world itself has been dramatically changed on two occasions according to the Bible – during the Great Flood and in the resulting shifts that occurred.
