Carbon 14 dating history
He quotes the significant underestimation of the age of ancient objects and states that in a large number of tests C14 failed consistently, the samples being far older than the C14 findings showed. There are so many assumptions required to journey into the distant past—it’s a better idea to trust the Creator, who was there, than the words of secular scientists. (See also: , 2nd ed., (New York: John Wiley & Sons, 1986): 391. However, the Flood buried large quantities of organic matter containing stable carbon ( (February 10, 2016): “There are many points in a given sequence where a sequence from a new piece of wood matches well (note that even two trees growing next to each other will not have identical growth ring patterns). The best match (using statistical tests) is often rejected in favor of a less exact match because the best match is deemed to be ‘incorrect’ (particularly if it is too far away from the carbon-14 ‘age’). Baumgardner, “14C evidence for a recent global flood and a young earth.” In L.
Baxter reports: ‘It came out very badly in the survey, even when dating samples as little as 200 years old.’ Only 7 out of 38 laboratories produced satisfactory results, and the margin of error with artefacts of known age was two or three times greater than the technique’s practitioners claim. When scientists build calibration models for radiocarbon dating that extend back many thousands of years, they attempt to build tree ring chronologies by “.(the magazine which published details of the original C14 experiment) has now published a demonstration that the radiocarbon technique is not only unsound but also outdated. This process relies on circular reasoning because it assumes that the “carbon clock” can be moved backwards in time in a straight line, and the Flood greatly disrupted carbon ratios in the earth, as well as the atmosphere that produces the ratios of radioactive and stable carbon.The Geological Observatory of Columbia University in New York has proved that the C14 results given in past years are in error by as much as 3,500 years in dating fossils, artefacts and events of the past 40,000 years, and the further back we go in time, the greater the error. Fairbanks of the observatory staff points out that since the C14 dating depends on the ever-variable quantity of C14 in the atmosphere produced by cosmic rays, any alteration of that production either by nature, or by the solar system, or by man-made interference (such as thermo-nuclear bombs) must cause a collapse of the whole hypothesis.

Carbon dating today assumes that the system has been in equilibrium for many thousands of years. Yamaguchi, “Interpretation of cross-correlation between tree-ring series.” , 46 (1986): 47–54: Yamaguchi recognized that ring pattern matches are not unique. Chaffin (editors), (August 2015), 112 (31): 9542–9545. So BSERC decided to conduct an on the practice of carbon dating itself.The test was conducted by sending dated artifacts of “known age” to 38 of the world’s leading radiocarbon testing laboratories. [vii] Tree ring dating (dendrochronology) has been used in an attempt to extend the calibration of carbon-14 dating earlier than historical records allow, but this depends on using carbon-14 dating.
