Does carbon dating confirm the Bible?

But carbon dating confirms the biblical timescale of thousands of years. It never gives age estimates of billions or even millions of years – even on things evolutionists believe to be very old like coal and diamonds. Carbon dating of dinosaur remains confirms their biblical age of thousands of years.

Why is carbon dating not used to date rocks?

Carbon dating is not used on rocks, because rocks do not have much carbon in them. And with a half-life of only 5730 years, carbon-14 does not last long enough to give an age estimate if something were truly millions of years old. All the carbon-14 would be gone after one million years.

Is carbon-14 a reliable way to date fossils?

Carbon-14 ( 14 C), also referred to as radiocarbon, is claimed to be a reliable dating method for determining the age of fossils up to 50,000 to 60,000 years. If this claim is true, the biblical account of a young earth (about 6,000 years) is in question, since 14 C dates of tens of thousands of years are common. 1

How many years does carbon dating go back?

Nothing on earth carbon dates in the millions of years, because the scope of carbon dating only extends a few thousand years. Willard Libby invented the carbon dating technique in the early 1950s.

How does carbon-14 dating verify the Bible?

Carbon-14 dating has verified hundreds of archaeological sites mentioned in the Bible. Over 57,000 readable clay tablets in Mesopotamia and many Egyptian Papyrii have shown that even many slaves could write in Abrahams time.

What is carbon dating?

The Carbon atom is the building block of all known physical life. According to Wikipedia, carbon dating (also referred to as radiocarbon dating or carbon-14 dating) is a method for determining the age of old organic material by measuring the amount of its radiocarbon, a radioactive isotope of carbon, also known as carbon 14.

Is 14C a reliable dating method for fossils?

Carbon-14 (14C), also referred to as radiocarbon, is claimed to be a reliable dating method for determining the age of fossils up to 50,000 to 60,000 years. If this claim is true, the biblical account of a young earth (about 6,000 years) is in question, since 14C dates of tens of thousands of years are common.1.

Is carbon-14 (14C) reliable?

Carbon-14 ( 14C), also referred to as radiocarbon, is claimed to be a reliable dating method for determining the age of fossils up to 50,000 to 60,000 years. When a scientist’s interpretation of data does not match the clear meaning of the text in the Bible, we should never reinterpret the Bible.
