Thus, no one even considers using carbon dating for dates in this range.In theory, it might be useful to archaeology, but not to geology or paleontology.

The resulting C-14 is unstable and decays back to N-14 with a measured half-life of approximately 5,730 years.

He claimed that it was capable of dating animal, plant and human remains of fairly “recent’ origin. As they say on Star Trek, we are all carbon based units.

Laboratory research has shown that the radioactive decay of Carbon-14 occurs in a half-life of 5,73040 years through beta decay that causes the Carbon-14 to revert back to Nitrogen-14.

A "Back to Genesis" way of thinking insists that the Flood of Noah's day would have removed a great deal of the world's carbon from the atmosphere and oceans, particularly as limestone (calcium ate) was precipitated.

Once the Flood processes ceased, C-14 began a slow build-up to equilibrium with C-12—a build-up not yet complete.

The process would continue, halving the amount left every 5,730 years until, theoretically, nothing remained of the original pound.

(approximately 78% of atmospheric gases) by thermal neutrons which come from the powerful cosmic radiation, primarily generated by the sun.

Thus the earth's atmosphere couldn't be any older than this.

Efforts to salvage carbon dating are many and varied, with calibration curves attempting to bring the C-14 "dates" in line with historical dates, but these produce predictably unreliable results.

The changing ratio of C-12 to C-14 indicates the length of time since the tree stopped absorbing carbon, i.e., the time of its death.

Obviously, if half the C-14 decays in 5,730 years, and half more decays in another 5,730 years, by ten half-lives (57,300 years) there would be essentially no C-14 left.

The Carbon-14 Dioxide is then utilized by plants during their normal metabolism.
