Consequently organisms living there dated by C14 give ages much older than their true age.
A lake Bonney seal known to have died only a few weeks before was carbon dated.
Carbon dating accurate range Xnxx de chat
The age they came back with was only a few thousand years old. And kept their theory that dinosaurs lived "millions of years ago" instead. They then use potassium argon, or other methods, and date the fossils again.
This date did not fit the preconceived notion that dinosaurs lived millions of years ago. They do this many times, using a different dating method each time.
What would happen if a dinosaur bone were carbon dated?
- At Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Scientists dated dinosaur bones using the Carbon dating method.
Libbey knew that atmospheric carbon would reach equilibrium in 30,000 years.
Because he assumed that the earth was millions of years old, he believed it was already at equilibrium.
When each of these elements, uranium, potassium, radium etc.
were switched on, it would only be natural for them to behave according to their individual properties, eventually acquiring stable half-lives of decay, at different rates.
16.000 years by the way is still 10,000 years before your God supposedly created the Earth." Amy M 12/11/01 My response: I explain the limits of Carbon dating below.
