Radio carbon dating for dummies

(We are not implying dishonesty here, merely showing how powerfully the evolutionary/uniformitarian concepts of Earth history influence great scientists to mould or discard evidence which appears to contradict that viewpoint.) What about modern measurements, using advanced technology such as satellites?

In other words, the further you go back, the more you have to shrink the radiocarbon dates to make them fit the facts.

In other words, going into the past, we should reach a period of time in which there is a sharp reduction in the number of specimens compared to the period just older than that, and as we went forward in time, we would expect a gradual buildup, as plant and animal populations recovered their numbers. Using the 15,000 published dates previously mentioned after adjusting them as described, he grouped them into 500 year ‘blocks’ and found a dramatic drop-off about 5,000 years ago, with a worldwide distribution (, Ed.

How do scientists determine the age of fossils that have been under the surface of the earth for thousands of years?

Scientific American Editor Michael Moyer explains the process of radiocarbon dating.
