Creation science and carbon dating

Some time ago I wrote about a temple complex near the mountains of Ararat which everyone agrees is really old.In fact, archaeologists date it to 8,000 BC (or earlier) even though the style is quite ‘advanced.’ Why would they claim this site is so old when they want us to believe people back then were simple, wandering nomads?I discovered it was because of Carbon-14 dating of the charcoal buried among the stones.

Turns out scientists have observed a drop in the magnetic field of 7% since we started studying it in 1835.That means, they dated to much younger than we know they really are.If things can have “too much” C-14, isn’t it possible for differences in the past to cause other things to have “too little” C-14?That question has been niggling at the back of my brain ever since.


This past week I ran into enough information to start searching for the answers and you should have seen me shout when I ran into them!ICR’s scientists figure at current rates it loses half its power in just 1,400 years.
