When granite rock hardens, it freezes radioactive elements in place.
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.
Radiocarbon ages do not increase steadily with depth, as one might expect. In other words, the concentration of carbon-14 is unexpectedly low in the lower organic layers.
As one moves to higher and higher layers, this concentration increases, but at a decreasing rate.
The key questions then are: Has the atmospheric ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 changed in the past, and if so, why and how much?
The assumption usually made, but rarely acknowledged, is that the ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 in the atmosphere before the industrial revolution has always been the sameabout one in a trillion.If the atmosphere's ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 has doubled since the flood and we did not know it, radiocarbon ages of things living soon after the flood would appear to be one half-life (or 5,730 years) older than their true ages.If that ratio quadrupled, organic remains would appear 11,460 (2 x 5,730) years older, etc.Gen1Denying Evolution Evolution=Millions Of Years Your Imagination Creation Answers Book 20 Chapters (More than 60 of the most asked questions about Creation, evolution, and the book of Genesis answered!)
