Criticism of carbon 14 dating
To that end, he quoted some authorities, including Richard Lingenfelter.
Having accomplished that, Morris concluded that the barrel was still in the process of being filled up and that, given the present rate of water coming in and leaking out, the filling process began only 10,000 years ago.
We say that the input and output of water is in equilibrium.
The water level just sits there even though the hose is going full blast.
Could it be that the whole scientific community has missed this point, or is it another case of creationist daydreaming?The following material has been taken from a sheet entitled Several Faulty Assumptions Are Used in all Radiometric Dating Methods.Carbon 14 is used for this example:, which was put out by Dr. is presently only 1/3 of the way to an equilibrium value which will be reached in 30,000 years. Knowing how faulty creationist "facts" can be, let's do a little research of our own.Contrary to creationist Barnes' totally discredited claims, which I've covered in Topic 11, the earth's magnetic field (dipole moment) has, indeed, increased and decreased over time.Strahler presents a graph of the earth's dipole moment going back 9000 years.
That is, the equilibrium point should have long since been reached given the present rate of carbon-14 production and the old age of the earth.
