Carbon dating printing


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


The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom determines the element.

He claimed that it was capable of dating animal, plant and human remains of fairly “recent’ origin. As they say on Star Trek, we are all carbon based units.

Laboratory research has shown that the radioactive decay of Carbon-14 occurs in a half-life of 5,73040 years through beta decay that causes the Carbon-14 to revert back to Nitrogen-14.

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