Since C-14 is so well distributed in the atmosphere, it is assumed the same ratio that is in the atmosphere will also be in an organism.

How carbon dating is supposed to work Once an organism dies, its C-14 decay is no longer being replaced by intake.

Be cautious of accepting a carbon age One should not accept any age from a dating method, including carbon dating, without knowing exactly how the dating method works and its limitations.

Many people also don’t realize that carbon dating (along with other radioactive dating methods) is based upon unverifiable assumptions.

The fact is, carbon dating can only be used to date things up to approximately 50,000 years old.

In fact, if an object contains (radioactive) carbon, this should be a clue that the object may not be any older than 50,000 years.

Therefore, all the C-14 remaining in the organism will eventually decay and disappear.

If one can measure the rate in which it decays, and the amount the organism started off with, then one might be able to figure out when the organism, such as a frog, croaked.

Throughout an organism’s life, it is constantly balancing its C-14 decay with intake so that it will always contain C-14.

However, when one starts with the Bible and interprets the information received from carbon dating accordingly, one will soon learn that in no way does carbon dating disprove the young earth.

Misconception # 1: Carbon dating can be used to date objects that are millions or even billions of years old Carbon dating is one of the most popular radioactive dating methods used today.
