radiocarbon dating also referred to as carbon dating or carbon14 dating is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon a radioactive isotope of carbon the method was developed in the late 1940s by willard libby who received the nobel prize in chemistry for his work in 1960 it is based on the fact that radiocarbon 14.
Evolutionists generally feel secure even in the face of compelling creationist arguments today because of their utter confidence in the geological time scale even if they cannot provide a naturalistic mechanism they appeal to the fact of evolution by which they mean an interpretation of earth.
A further example from a lava flow off the coast of hawaii shows similar discrepancies if dated with the carbon14 method the flow appears to be less than 17000 years old but dating with the potassium argon method gives dates of 160000 to 43 million years.
The following material has been taken from a sheet entitled several faulty assumptions are used in all radiometric dating methods carbon 14 is used for this example which was put out by dr hovind dr hovind r1 the atmospheric c14 is presently only 13 of the way to an equilibrium value.

The three bright blue stars that make up orions belt look pretty small up in the night sky but actually blue stars are some of the most massive and brightest stars in.

Dr hovind g1 the assumption that the geologic column is a base from which to calibrate the c14 dates is not wise g1with a halflife of only 5730 years carbon14 dating has nothing to do with dating the geological ages whether by sloppiness or gross ignorance dr hovind is confusing the carbon14 clock with other radiometric.
A fossil bed in china that is being called jurassic park has yielded perhaps the greatest dinosaur soft tissue discovery of all time according to media reports nearlycomplete skeletons have been discovered that even include skin and feathers.
