Half life dating fossils
An earlier questioner asked how metal blades in wet shavers lost their sharpness so easily on human hair.
One answer said that alternating blades in a razor made each one last longer than if left in place until they became blunt.
Outside the range of recorded history, calibration of the 14 clock is not possible.
This means the above calculations are only evolution speculation and NOT backed up by real science.
When granite rock hardens, it freezes radioactive elements in place.
The most common radioactive element in granite is Uranium-238.
However, before accepting any radiocarbon date, one should know how the technique works, its limitations, and its assumptions.
One limitation is that the radiocarbon technique dates only material that was once part of an animal or plant, such as bones, flesh, or wood. To understand the other capabilities and limitations of radiocarbon dating, we must understand how it works and consider the flood. However, roughly one in a trillion carbon atoms weighs 14 atomic units. It is also called radio carbon because it is radio active (but not dangerous).
Half of the remainder will decay in another 5,730 years, and so on.
Cosmic radiation striking the upper atmosphere converts about 21 pounds of nitrogen each year into radiocarbon (carbon-14).
Most carbon-14 quickly combines with oxygen to form radioactive carbon dioxide, which then spreads throughout 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.
