Can carbon 14 dating be wrong a dating web

Creationists don't want their readers to be distracted with problems like that -- unless the cat is already out of the bag and something has to be said.Tree-ring dating (see Topic 27) gives us a wonderful check on the radiocarbon dating method for the last 8000 years.We say that the input and output of water is in equilibrium.The water level just sits there even though the hose is going full blast.This nullifies the carbon-14 method as well as demonstrating that the earth is less than 10,000 years old. One suspects that the scientific world would not be using the carbon-14 method if it were so obviously flawed.Could it be that the whole scientific community has missed this point, or is it another case of creationist daydreaming?That is, we can use carbon-14 dating on a given tree-ring (the 8000-year sequence having been assembled from the overlapping tree-ring patterns of living and dead trees) and compare the resulting age with the tree-ring date.A study of the deviations from the accurate tree-ring dating sequence shows that the earth's magnetic field has an important effect on carbon-14 production.

Having accomplished that, Morris concluded that the barrel was still in the process of being filled up and that, given the present rate of water coming in and leaking out, the filling process began only 10,000 years ago.

The barrel represents the earth's atmosphere in which the carbon-14 accumulates.

The water leaking out the sides of the barrel represents the loss (mainly by radioactive decay) of the atmosphere's supply of carbon-14.

(The barrel is made deep enough so that we don't have to worry about water overflowing the rim.) Henry Morris argued that if we started filling up our empty barrel it would take 30,000 years to reach the equilibrium point.

Thus, he concluded, if our Earth were older than 30,000 years the incoming water should just equal the water leaking out.

    I think that our average age is 28 if you think about it.

    Because I'm still on my 4th of July holiday, I've decided to reflect once more on this great country of yours, and how its qualities and foibles lend itself to my dating life.

    'When you see a woman, when she walks into a room and you just see her glow and you can just see this energy projecting off her and that's confidence, that's self-esteem and that's believing in who they are and knowing who they are.
