Radiometric dating and carbon dating of fossils

By dating rocks of known ages which give highly inflated ages, geologists have shown this method can’t give reliable absolute ages.

Many geologists claim that radiometric “clocks” show rocks to be millions of years old.

When an organism dies it ceases to replenish carbon in its tissues and the decay of carbon 14 to nitrogen 14 changes the ratio of carbon 12 to carbon 14.

If the fossil has 35% of its carbon 14 still, then we can substitute values into our equation.

So, the fossil is 8,680 years old, meaning the living organism died 8,680 years ago.

The stable form of carbon is carbon 12 and the radioactive isotope carbon 14 decays over time into nitrogen 14 and other particles.

Carbon is naturally in all living organisms and is replenished in the tissues by eating other organisms or by breathing air that contains carbon.

Clearly, such huge time periods cannot be fitted into the Bible without compromising what the Bible says about the goodness of God and the origin of sin, death and suffering—the reason Jesus came into the world (See Six Days? He said, This only makes sense with a time-line beginning with the creation week thousands of years ago.
