A a snelling radioactive dating in conflict
It is literally able to count carbon-14 atoms one at a time.This machine can theoretically detect one radioactive carbon-14 atom in 100 quadrillion regular carbon-12 atoms! AMS instruments need to be checked occasionally, to make sure they arent also reading any laboratory contamination, called background.If the radioactive element carbon-14 breaks down quicklywithin a few thousand yearswhy do we still find it in fossils and diamonds?Its a dilemma for evolutionists, who believe the rocks are millions of years old.
Since a blank sample holder in the AMS instrument predictably yields zero radiocarbon, these scientists should naturally conclude that the radiocarbon is intrinsic to the rocks.
Located in Cretaceous layers that were supposedly millions of years old, the fossilized shell and wood yielded radiocarbon ages of 48,710 and 42,390 years respectively.
Just as intriguing is the discovery of measurable radiocarbon in diamonds.
Many people think that scientists use radiocarbon to date fossils.
After all, we should be able to estimate how long ago a creature lived based on how much radiocarbon is left in its body, right? Radiocarbon (carbon-14) is a very unstable element that quickly changes into nitrogen.
