No nonsense dating book
However, these excessively long ages are easily explained within the biblical worldview, and C should be present in specimens that are even a little more than 100,000 years old!Nearly anyone can verify this for themselves using basic multiplication and division.
Because these radioisotope methods yield age estimates of many millions of years for igneous rocks, it is thought that sedimentary rocks are also millions of years old, as well as the organic remains found within them.
And a radiocarbon result that contradicts old-earth dogma is not a good enough reason by itself to invoke contamination!
Assumptions…Assumptions Instead of arbitrarily blaming these anomalous results on contamination, a far better (and more scientific) approach would be to question the correctness of the assumptions behind radioisotope dating methods.
Creation scientists have estimated (based upon the amounts of organic matter thought to be contained within the sedimentary layers) that the carbon in the pre-Flood biosphere may have been 300 to 700 times greater than what is present in today’s world.
C/C ratio was 500 times smaller than today’s value, this would be equivalent to 100 p MC/500 = 0.2 p MC.
Evolutionists have long used the carbon-14, or radiocarbon, dating technique as a “hammer” to bludgeon Bible-believing Christians.
