Carbon dating test

Scientists use a technique called radiometric dating to estimate the ages of rocks, fossils, and the earth.

Many people have been led to believe that radiometric dating methods have proved the earth to be billions of years old.

This has caused many in the church to reevaluate the biblical creation account, specifically the meaning of the word “day” in Genesis 1.

With our focus on one particular form of radiometric dating—carbon dating—we will see that carbon dating strongly supports a young earth.

However its application has caused extreme confusion and misunderstanding of the archaeological record.

As plants enter the human and animal food chains the C14 dioxide enters their living tissue.

Atoms of the same element that have different numbers of neutrons are called isotopes. Most carbon on Earth exists as the very stable isotope carbon-12, with a very small amount as carbon-13.

Here’s an example using the simplest atom, hydrogen. Carbon-14 is an unstable isotope of carbon that will eventually decay at a known rate to become carbon-12.

Radiocarbon or C14 dating employs complex systems of measuring the unstable isotopes in once living matter.

There are three forms of carbon that naturally occur forming the building blocks of all plant and animal life.
