C-14 readily combines with oxygen to produce radioactive CO2, which enters the food chain.When an animal or plant dies, it ceases to take in C-14, and what is there begins to decay back into N-14.This has caused many in the church to reevaluate the biblical creation account, specifically the meaning of the word “day” in Genesis 1.
Each isotope along the uranium to lead decay series leaves it own “signature” halo. Whatever process was responsible for the halos could also be a key also to understanding radiometric dating.” Carbon 14 Dating Cosmic radiation strikes Nitrogen-14 in the atmosphere producing radioactive carbon (C-14).
/ Can You Disprove The Gods You Don't Believe In (1) (2) (3) (4) Scientists use a technique called radiometric dating to estimate the ages of rocks, fossils, and the earth.
Many people have been led to believe that radiometric dating methods have proved the earth to be billions of years old.
by Tas Walker Radioactive dating begins by carefully measuring the concentrations of radioactive isotopes in rocks.
Everything is composed of elements and there are about 90 naturally occurring ones, such as hydrogen, carbon, oxygen and iron.
