Accuracy carbon dating fossils

25 Apr

Unfortunately, we aren't able to reliably date artifacts beyond several thousand years.

There is a lot of discussion about this issue on this internet, so I think this question may be worth addressing seriously.The claims are really quite spectacular, when taken at face value, and therefore should be examined thoroughly.In this answer, I will try to go through this story in great detail, (hopefully) exposing the reasons why this work is not taken seriously by scientists."This attitude is clearly reflected in a regrettably common practice: when a radiocarbon date agrees with the expectations of the excavator it appears in the main text of the site report; if it is slightly discrepant it is relegated to a footnote; if it seriously conflicts it is left out altogether." (Peter James, et al. It is for specimens which only date back a few thousand years. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.Anything beyond that is problematic and highly doubtful. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible.
