However, to read any clock accurately we must know where the clock was set at the beginning.

It’s like making sure that an hourglass clock was set with all the sand in the top bowl at the beginning.

The impact of the radiocarbon dating technique on modern man has made it one of the most significant discoveries of the 20th century.

radioactive dating in the united states-59

By dating rocks of known ages which give highly inflated ages, geologists have shown this method can’t give reliable absolute ages.

God’s word unmistakably teaches a young earth and universe (“the heavens”).

Radiometric dating measures the decay of radioactive atoms to determine the age of a rock sample.

It is founded on unprovable assumptions such as 1) there has been no contamination and 2) the decay rate has remained constant.

The next image (below left) is of charred fossil wood; and beside that is intact fossil wood (Note biro gives size perspective).

The bottom two images are of basalt with holes from former gas bubbles (left) and visible fossil tree roots in siltstone.God has ensured the accurate recording and preservation of His eyewitness account of the earth’s history, which Jesus Christ endorsed repeatedly during His earthly ministry.God took great care to include the necessary chronological details of the universe’s creation in six literal days, as well as the unbroken genealogies of mankind from Adam to Jesus.Archaeology and other human sciences use radiocarbon dating to prove or disprove theories.Over the years, carbon 14 dating has also found applications in geology, hydrology, geophysics, atmospheric science, oceanography, paleoclimatology, and even biomedicine.Plants and animals assimilate carbon 14 from carbon dioxide throughout their lifetimes.
