von Fange, "Time Upside Down," in Creation Research Society Quarterly, June 1974, p. "Although it was hailed as the answer to the prehistorian's prayer when it was first announced, there has been increasing disillusion with the [radiocarbon] method because of the chronological uncertainties—in some cases absurdities—that would follow a strict adherence to published C-14 dates . What bids to become a classic example of `C-14 irresponsibility' is the 6,000 year spread of 11 determinations for Jarmo, a prehistoric village in northeastern Iraq which, on the basis of all archeological evidence, was not occupied for more than 500 consecutive years."—*C. Reed, "Animal Domestication in the Prehistoric Near East," in Science, 130 (1959), p. "A survey of the 15,000 radiocarbon dates published through the year 1969 in the publication, Radiocarbon, revealed the following significant facts: "[a] Of the dates of 9,671 specimens of trees, animals, and man, only 1,146 or about 12 percent have radiocarbon ages greater than 12,530 years.
We can't date oil paints, because their oil is "old" carbon from petroleum. And third, it is common to soak new-found fossils in a preservative, such as shellac.CONTENTS: Scientists Speak about Radiocarbon Dating This material is excerpted from the book, DATING OF TIME IN EVOLUTION. Lee, "Radiocarbon: Ages in Error," in Creation Research Society Quarterly, September 1982, pp. But only the scientific community is told that fact.An asterisk ( * ) by a name indicates that person is not known to be a creationist. "Well authenticated dates are known only back as far as about 1600 B. "There are two basic assumptions in the radiocarbon method.Anything that was once alive or that was produced by a living thing can be dated by using the radiocarbon method of dating.This method, which received widespread attention in connection with the Dead Sea Scrolls, relies on the fact that all living things take in carbon, some of which is very slightly radioactive. To hear some people tell it, scientists have nearly absolute confidence in the dating methods they use.
One also assumes that all the sand is in the bottom of the glass when one turns it over. He must look for something in the bone which disappears over time, as the sand disappeared from the top chamber of the egg timer.
