Creationism evolution carbon dating who is karina smirnoff dating now
For those of you that have taken a chemistry class or two and want to know the intimate details, by all means, read on.
The premise: The premise is that, cosmic rays hitting the atmosphere create speeding neutrons that collide with nitrogen atoms producing carbon 14.
This carbon should decay at a steady rate, thus scientists can track it back like a clock, determining the approximate age of the artifact.
Conclusion: Yes you just saw the words "dead on to the biblical etc." don't panic, you should have read along, now look at what you've missed.
Most creationists seem unaware that carbon dating is of most use in archaeology, where artefacts are of quite recent origin, and is not used for establishing the age of rocks or ancient fossils.
Nevertheless, they believe that by repeating the claims about the supposed inaccuracy of carbon dating, the majority of readers will begin to doubt the basis for evolution.
Further, the decay of these atoms into carbon 12 is progressing at the same rate as the creation of these atoms.
All things should absorb these atoms of carbon 14 their entire life, maintaining the same ratio of Carbon 14 to carbon 12 as the atmosphere. This ratio, (1 to 1 trillion) will begin to change, the number of carbon 14 atoms diminish while the number of carbon 12 atoms remain the same.
They believe that species have not evolved, but were created much as we know them today.
