Bible and carbon dating

The older a sample is, the less (the period of time after which half of a given sample will have decayed) is about 5,730 years, the oldest dates that can be reliably measured by this process date to around 50,000 years ago, although special preparation methods occasionally permit accurate analysis of older samples.The idea behind radiocarbon dating is straightforward, but years of work were required to develop the technique to the point where accurate dates could be obtained.These chronologies are hotly debated among Christians and secularists alike, with the consensus being increasingly challenged.Moreover, some of the incredible Egyptian monuments like the great pyramids on the Giza Plateau have dates ascribed to them that would have them being built before the earth-reshaping Flood of Noah’s time around 4,500 years ago.Until recent years, scientists who believe in creation haven't had the necessary resources to explore radiometric dating in detail.

When I did the math from their results section of the YBP, they all turned out to be right around the year 1400 .

Hopefully this article will help us realize that the issue is not as cut and dried as the secular community sometimes presents it.

Nor does Egyptian civilization falsify biblical history as the skeptics would like us to think.

I understand calibration might have something to do with this, but then in the article it says in italicized words that the uncalibrated date “Must Always Be Mentioned”. CMI’s Dr Rob Carter responds: Anthony, As a fan of biblical archaeology, I was asked to address your question.

But when I read articles about the results, they never mention the uncalibrated data, which could actually be correct. I am not an expert in every subject that impinges on the discussion, but I will do my best.

Research has been ongoing since the 1960s to determine what the proportion of in the atmosphere has been over the past fifty thousand years.
