They want to know if it is accurate or if it works at all.Worse still, sometimes they want to know how evolutionists use Carbon-14 to date dinosaur fossils!Radiometric Dating Technologies are presented to the public by evolutionists as utterly reliable clocks for dating earth rocks or biological materials.There are more than 80 such technologies that are claimed to work.The presence of C in coal is probably produced de novo by radioactive decay of the uranium-thorium isotope series that is naturally found in rocks (and which is found in varying concentrations in different rocks, hence the variation in C dating. I picked him to bother with my emails because he had recently written some nice review articles about the AMS technique in the Radiocarbon journal. Since Nitrogen gas makes up about 78 percent of the Earth's air, by volume, a considerable amount of Carbon-14 is produced.
He claimed that it was capable of dating animal, plant and human remains of fairly recent origin. As they say on Star Trek, we are all carbon based units.Using other people’s research or ideas without giving them due credit is plagiarism.Since Bib Me™ makes it easy to create citations, build bibliographies and acknowledge other people’s work, there is no excuse to plagiarize.These methods are generally very accurate and valuable, but a couple of considerations must be made regarding certain of these methods.Radioactive dating techniques rely on a statistical assumption, but a really solid one.Apparently one of the new neutrino detectors, the Borexino detector in Italy, works by detecting tiny flashes of visible light produced by neutrinos passing through a huge subterranean vat of "scintillation fluid".
