Radiocarbon ages do not increase steadily with depth, as one might expect. In other words, the concentration of carbon-14 is unexpectedly low in the lower organic layers.
As one moves to higher and higher layers, this concentration increases, but at a decreasing rate.
Actually, that ratio may have been quite different.
Plants take in carbon dioxide, incorporating in their tissues both carbon-14 (unstable) and normal carbon-12 (stable) in the same proportion as they occur in the atmosphere .
Carbon-14 then moves up the various food chains to enter animal tissueagain, in about the same ratio carbon-14 has with carbon-12 in the atmosphere.
As our knowledge continues to grow, what we know continues to be in agreement with Scripture.
Radiocarbon ages less than 3,500 years old are probably accurate.
However, for the last 3,500 years, the increase in the ratio has been extremely slight.
Radiocarbon dating of vertical sequences of organic-rich layers at 714 locations worldwide has consistently shown a surprising result.Until recent years, scientists who believe in creation haven't had the necessary resources to explore radiometric dating in detail.A 10 gram sample of U-238Now that has changed, and some important discoveries are being made.Therefore, a radiocarbon year would not correspond to an actual year.As explained in recent measurements show that the ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 has been building up in the atmosphere.Gen1Denying Evolution Evolution=Millions Of Years Your Imagination Creation Answers Book 20 Chapters (More than 60 of the most asked questions about Creation, evolution, and the book of Genesis answered!
