As with any radioactive isotope, carbon-14 decays over time.
The half-life of carbon 14 is approximate 5,730 years.
Prior to 1905 the best and most accepted age of the Earth was that proposed by Lord Kelvin based on the amount of time necessary for the Earth to cool to its present temperature from a completely liquid state.
We can see how do deal with this if we take a particular case. For example the amount of Rb in mantle rocks is generally low, i.e. The mantle thus has a low If these two independent dates are the same, we say they are concordant.
In fact, the experiments cited by the creationists appear to be attempts to establish the measurement error of there equipment.
Older carbon dating techniques directly detected decays of C14 atoms. The most common contaminant is nitrogen, 0.1% in gem-quality diamonds.
This can result in the appearance of Ads we do not endorse and with which we seriously disagree.
We filter these ads as we find them, but this takes time. Carbon-14 dating is the standard method used by scientists to determine the age of certain fossilized remains.
