Carbon dating of god
Presuming the rate of production of carbon-14 to be constant, the activity of a sample can be directly compared to the equilibrium activity of current living matter and the age calculated. Years of work were required to develop the technique to the point where accurate dates could be obtained.Research has been ongoing since the 1960s to determine what the proportion of carbon-14 in the atmosphere has been over the past fifty thousand years.
The system of carbon dating has been around for about 100 years.The older a sample is, the less carbon-14 there is to be detected.But it is not as simple as comparing the amount of carbon-14 in the fossil to a chart and getting its age.I waited my turn in line and then the young cashier called me up to her window. Now I was glad to get my 10% off but it made me think...
