Carbon dating- another lie from creationists

2013-10-14 15:34

Creationists always tell untruths.

More creationist dishonesty- carbon measurements and concentrations.

Gary Wawn, in a comment made in an article http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/Problems-with-the-Bible-Part-1-20131009, on October 10, 2013 at 10:39.

His comment:

Carbon 14 being found in Diamonds deposits, Coal deposits and Dinosaur fossils as well as Dinosaur soft tissue being found. Given the timeframe required for Evolution to occur, there should be no traces left of Carbon 14 in any of these. Instead it should have all degraded to nitrogen 14, but we are finding different results.

This is not true at all. Anything that contains any form of carbon would contain C-14.

For example, C-14 also results from the naturally occurring, stable isotope C-13, through various forms of nuclear reactions. Any exposure to radioactivity ( such as in Kimberlites where the stable isotope C-13 turns into C-14).

Any Carbon containing material would contain isotopes (C-12, C-13 and C-14) and would always show some measurement for C-14. Doesn’t matter how old it is. With our current technology, we can detect those isotopes contained in the samples, but not accurately measure how much of them in there.

Why do creationists always lie? It seems as if untruths are all they have.

Gary Wawn was not telling the truth here…..why do creationists always tell untruths?
