Creationism vs carbon 14 dating

They all start with similar flaws, but Carbon-14 has more than the rest.The Carbon-14 “dating” method was introduced by Dr. Libby (1908-1980) at the University of Chicago in 1949. Carbon-12 is the normal stable isotope of Carbon (99% of all Carbon), which is the basic building block of organic life forms. von Fange, "Time Upside Down," in Creation Research Society Quarterly, June 1974, p. "Although it was hailed as the answer to the prehistorian's prayer when it was first announced, there has been increasing disillusion with the [radiocarbon] method because of the chronological uncertainties—in some cases absurdities—that would follow a strict adherence to published C-14 dates . What bids to become a classic example of `C-14 irresponsibility' is the 6,000 year spread of 11 determinations for Jarmo, a prehistoric village in northeastern Iraq which, on the basis of all archeological evidence, was not occupied for more than 500 consecutive years."—*C. Reed, "Animal Domestication in the Prehistoric Near East," in Science, 130 (1959), p. "A survey of the 15,000 radiocarbon dates published through the year 1969 in the publication, Radiocarbon, revealed the following significant facts: "[a] Of the dates of 9,671 specimens of trees, animals, and man, only 1,146 or about 12 percent have radiocarbon ages greater than 12,530 years.

Of over 4,000 quotations in the books this Encyclopedia is based on, only 164 statements are by creationists. One is that the carbon 14 concentration in the carbon dioxide cycle is constant.

You will have a better understanding of the following statements by scientists if you will also read the web page, . The other is that the cosmic ray flux has been essentially constant—at least on a scale of centuries."—*J. Kulp, "The Carbon 14 Method of Age Determination," in Scientific Monthly, November 1952, p. "Hair from the Chekurovka mammoth that was found in the Lena River delta region of Russia has a radiocarbon age of 26,000 [years] while the radiocarbon age of peat only eighteen inches above the carcass is 5,610.

For some reason, which I have not yet figured out, at least one person per week has been asking me about the Carbon-14 Radiometric Dating Technique.

They want to know if it is accurate or if it works at all.

It is not a matter of whether the science itself is faulty.
