Radiocarbon dating is especially good for determining the age of sites occupied within the last 26,000 years or so (but has the potential for sites over 50,000), can be used on carbon-based materials (organic or inorganic), and can be accurate to within ±30-50 years.Probably the most important factor to consider when using radiocarbon dating is if external factors, whether through artificial contamination, animal disturbance, or human negligence, contributed to any errors in the determinations.But apparently this evidence was unacceptable to influential evolutionists who subsequently found out about it.
The age of an ancient tree trunk is estimated using C-14 dating.
If the trunk has a C-14 decay rate that is 1/4 of what it is in living plants, how old is the trunk?
These remarkable findings were presented by the German physicist Dr.
Thomas Seiler at a conference sponsored by the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) in Singapore.
The Radiocarbon Revolution Since its development by Willard Libby in the 1940s, radiocarbon (14C) dating has become one of the most essential tools in archaeology.
