How is radioactive dating used to interpret the fossil record
The carbon-14 analysis indicated that the dinosaur bones were between 10,000 and 16,000 years old, not 60-70 million years old as typically assumed.To defend their long age assumption, evolutionists claim that all these samples must have been contaminated by outside carbon, but modern AMS methods eliminate the possibility of carbon contamination, and all samples from many different sources consistently showed the same results.He calculated that Earth’s rotational speed would have been twice the present speed if it was over 7 billion years old.This decline in rotation rate is now known to be even greater than previously thought, so if the Earth had existed for even 5 billion years as conventionally claimed, then the difference between polar and equatorial radii would have been significantly greater than it actually is.Moreover, diamonds cannot be contaminated since they have incredibly strong lattice bonds.C-14 in coal, diamonds, and dinosaur fossils consistently shows they are only thousands of years old, not millions of years old, revealing that evolutionary long ages are false.Using the much more precise AMS method, leading radiocarbon laboratories in the world consistently found significant amounts of carbon in coal and diamond samples.If coal or diamonds were really millions or billions of years old (as evolutionists claim), no traces of carbon-14 would have been found.
In recent years, however, a key technical advance allowed much more precise measurement of the ratio of C-14 to C-12 atoms using an ion beam accelerator and a mass spectrometer, called the accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) method.
Carbon-14 has a short half-life less than 6,000 years, so both evolutionists and creationists agree that radiocarbon dating is only useful for dating relatively young things, thousands of years old, and is invalid for measuring alleged long ages of evolution.
Items older than 250,000 years (at most) should be completely ‘carbon-14 dead’, with no carbon-14 remaining at all.
Evolution of life from non-life, or from one species to another has never been observed, not even once.
The fossil record is exactly what we would expect to see if species were intelligently created, and exactly what we do see.
