The earth before man is probably millions of years old, but since man, it's only about 10,000 years old or less see there was an earth before man for the angels, but then when the devil caused a problem he was at war with god and he destroyed the earth, but then god made the earth new again and that is when adam was made. At a very steady rate, unstable carbon-14 gradually decays to carbon-12 the ratio of these carbon isotopes reveals the ages of some of earth’s oldest inhabitants radiocarbon dating is a. The assumption of a great age will influence the interpretation of the data and is certainly likely to lead to colossal misconceptions, the most outstanding of which is the widely propagated view that radiometric dating has established the age of the earth to be 45 by. The generally accepted age for the earth and the rest of the solar system is about 455 billion years (plus or minus about 1%) this value is derived from several. The best age for the earth is based on the time required for the lead isotopes in four very old lead ores (galena) to have evolved from the composition of lead at the time the solar system formed, as recorded in the canyon diablo iron meteorite.
Do not just stop at looking into carbon dating as that really is only used for animal or beings type dating due to its decay rate but also look at the ones used for dating rocks like potassium argon for example. The age of the earth is 454 ± 005 billion years (according to modern biology, of the british association for the advancement of science came to a rough consensus that earth was a few billion years old, and that radiometric dating was credible. There are over 70 ways to date the earth using various disciplines: chemical, anthropological, archaeological, etc and all these methods suggest a young vs an old earth even carbon dating used by evolutionists can only date as far back as 60,000 years, beyond this is a guess. 1 carbon dating: how old is it really by david m barker (this is a variation of an article first published in “chronology & catastrophism review” 2013 it is also published as chapter 3 in science and religion: reconciling the conflicts, 2013) radiocarbon dating is not employed to test theories, but to support them .
Because of the earth's aggressive tectonic activity, it was anticipated that dating of the earth's rocks would yield a minimum, but probably young date for the earth as stated previously, the oldest rock formations are just over 42 billion years old, while the earth's oldest minerals are 44 billion years old. Or particles-to-people evolution to have a speck of plausibility, earth needs to be billions of years old people who ask about carbon- 14 ( 14 c) dating usually want to know about the radiometric 1 dating methods that give the millions and billions of years, whereas. If anyone says that the earth is billions of years old, based on carbon dating, they obviously do not understand how carbon dating works for example, it is commonly stated by evolutionists that life started, by chance, 4 billion years ago, or 4,000,000,000 years ago.
Radiometric dating or radioactive dating is a technique used to date materials such as rocks or carbon, in which trace radioactive impurities were selectively incorporated when they were formed the method compares the abundance of a naturally occurring radioactive isotope within the material to the abundance of its decay products, which form. G brent dalrymple's classic debunking of the young-earth 'scientific' creationism's dating methods with a short explanation of how geologists know the age of the earth how old is the earth a response to “scientific” creationism by g brent dalrymple the radioactivity of carbon-14 is very weak and even with all its dubious assumptions. One is for potentially dating fossils (once-living things) using carbon-14 dating, and the other is for dating rocks and the age of the earth using uranium, potassium and other radioactive atoms the atomic number corresponds to the number of protons in an atom.
Radio-carbon dating would not support a very old earth anyway, since it can only be used to date things up to (at maximum) about 70,000 years still too long for a young earth scenario so even if radio-carbon dating turns out not to be useful in dating at all, we still have an old earth from other dating measures. The best age for the earth comes not from dating individual rocks but by considering the earth and meteorites as part of the same evolving system in which the isotopic composition of lead, specifically the ratio of lead-207 to lead-206 changes over time owing to the decay of radioactive uranium-235 and uranium-238, respectively scientists have. Another method of determining the age of the earth is to use resources such as radiometric (carbon) dating, geologic cycles, and so forth by comparing different methods, and seeing if they align, scientists attempt to determine how old the planet is.
Carbon dating is a good dating tool for some things that we know the relative date of something that is 300 years old for example but it is far from an exact science. So if that were the case then the earth could be old closer to the millions that science shows it has with carbon dating another possibility is that god took materials from around the universe and formed them into the earth and every thing.
Postscript to carbon-14 shows the earth is young i received an attempt at rebuttal from an anonymous evolutionist friend of an acquaintance he tried to show that if a buried mass of carboniferous material (such as coal) is exposed to a source of slow neutrons, then carbon-14 can be formed by neutron capture by c-13. The book of genesis does not say how old the earth is, nor does it make any claims as to how much time expired between the time that god put adam and eve in the garden of eden and when they were cast out. In addition to the ages of earth, moon, and meteorites, radiometric dating has been used to determine ages of fossils, including early man, timing of glaciations, ages of mineral deposits, recurrence rates of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the history of reversals of. Carbon dating: the history of life on earth (video) now, some people who think that the earth is only 6,000 years old may base their claims on words in the bible, not measurable evidence.
