Carbon dating rate group
Clearly, such huge time periods cannot be fitted into the Bible without compromising what the Bible says about the goodness of God and the origin of sin, death and suffering—the reason Jesus came into the world (See Six Days? He said, This only makes sense with a time-line beginning with the creation week thousands of years ago.
It makes no sense at all if man appeared at the end of billions of years.
This important work is a ‘must have’ for anyone’s library! by Don Batten This little booklet provides solid, Biblically-based answers to the most-asked questions about carbon dating: Is the Earth really billions of years old?
It’s long been known that radiocarbon (which should disappear in only a few tens of thousands of years at the most) keeps popping up reliably in samples (like coal, oil, gas, etc.) which are supposed to be ‘millions of years’ old.This latter suggestion about primordial C-14 appears to have been somewhat spectacularly supported when Dr Baumgardner sent a diamond for C-14 dating.It was the first time this had been attempted, and the answer came back positive—i.e.The diamond’s carbon-dated ‘age’ of C-14 labs have no real answer to this problem, namely that all the ‘vast-age’ specimens they measure still have C-14.Labelling this detectable C-14 with such words as ‘contamination’ and ‘background’ is completely unhelpful in explaining its source, as the RATE group’s careful analyses and discussions have shown.
There must have been speeded-up decay, perhaps in a huge burst associated with Creation Week and/or a separate burst at the time of the Flood.
