Could carbon dating be wrong

07 May

By the year 2100, the atmosphere will have a radiocarbon age of 2,000 years old. If Graven's calculations are correct, carbon dating as we know it today will no longer be reliable by the year 2030.

Which means scientists won’t be able to use carbon dating to distinguish between new materials and artifacts that are hundreds or thousands of years old.

Robert Whitelaw has done a very good job illustrating this theory using about 30,000 dates published in Radio Carbon over the last 40 years.

(They conveniently forget to mention that the tree ring chronology was arranged by C14 dating.

The scientists who were trying to build the chronology found the tree rings so ambiguous that they could not decide which rings matched which (using the bristlecone pine).

We believe all the dates over 5,000 years are really compressible into the next 2,000 years back to creation.

So when you hear of a date of 30,000 years for a carbon date we believe it to be early after creation and only about 7,000 years old.
