Radio carbon dating disproved

Because C-14 is constantly being absorbed by plants for the purpose of photosynthesis, the natural cycle of C-14 (Radioactive Carbon), along with C-12 (non-radioactive carbon), is constantly absorbed to other animals via the food chain.Bob Altemeyer - The Authoritarians (1.32 MB)National Academy of Science - Science, Evolution, and Creationism (3.16 MB)John Woodmorappe - Radiometric Geochronology Reappraised (3.35MB)Defining Reasonableness Online: A Case Study of an Internet Forumabout the Creation / Evolution Controversy John A Davison - A Prescribed Evolutionary Hypothesis Charlie Rose Show - Discussion About Charles Darwin (w/ EO Wilson & James Watson)New Scientist - Are We Still Evolving?Misconception #2: Carbon dating can be used to date virtually anything Another misconception people have about carbon dating is that it can be used to date virtually anything.

Gove consulted numerous laboratories which were able at the time (1982) to carbon-date small fabric samples. [...] The pressure on the ecclesiastic authorities to accept the Turin protocol have almost approached illegality.

Ironically, despite its popularity, it is also one of the most misunderstood methods of dating.

Many people mistakenly believe carbon dating can be used to date objects that are millions or even billions of years old.

Libby estimated that the steady state radioactivity concentration of exchangeable carbon-14 would be about 14 disintegrations per minute (dpm) per gram.

In recognition of his work, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1960.
