The article is in straightforward language and the non-technical reader could profitably work through it.
C, we find that this ratio is the same if we sample a leaf from a tree, or a part of your body.
As soon as it dies, however, the C ratio gets smaller.
In other words, the further you go back, the more you have to shrink the radiocarbon dates to make them fit the facts.
Some examples of dates which contradict orthodox (evolutionary) views: , pub.
by Creation-Science Research Center) A question which could be asked after all this is: does radio-carbon, adjusted to fit the ‘non-uniform’ model, give any independent evidence of a worldwide catastrophe such as the Flood?
Because Libby believed that the Earth was millions of years old, he assumed that there had been plenty of time for the system to be in C was entering the atmosphere as fast as it was leaving—calculations show that this should take place in about 30,000 years, and of course the Earth was much older than that, said the geologists.
Imagine a tank with water flowing in at a certain rate, and flowing out again at the same rate (see diagram below). If you saw it for the first time, you wouldn’t be able to work out how old it was—how long it had been since it was ‘switched on’. Imagine the same tank, this time it is not yet full and the top tap is flowing more quickly than the bottom one is leaking out—this gives you a way of measuring how long ago the whole system was ‘switched on’ and it also tells you that that can’t have been too long ago (see diagram above).
