Radiometric dating remains a reliable scientific method.

If one were to believe the Bible, the earth was surrounded by a layer of water vapor between Creation and the Flood.

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

This bombardment causes a nuclear reaction to take place.

Then, in another 5,730 years, a second decay period would occur, leaving one quarter of a pound.

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

Experiments done with the radioactive isotopes of Uranium-238 and Iron-57 have shown that rates not only do vary, but can, in fact, be altered by changing the environment surrounding the samples.

on July 16, 1945, and the subsequent above ground testing between 19, caused a rise in neutrons which in turn increased Carbon-14 concentrations around the world.This would be the amount of time it would take for nine half-lives, and after that there would not be enough left to measure accurately.There is no instrument on earth that can detect Carbon-14 in a specimen that is supposedly older than 18 half-lives. There are, however, many false assumptions that must be made in order to derive Carbon-14 dates and the knowledge of these false assumptions demonstrates the uselessness in this other-wise supposedly useful not varied over the years. There is ample evidence to prove that quite the opposite is true.Animals and humans who eat these plants take the Carbon-14 into their systems just as they would Carbon-12 Dioxide.There is then a ratio of Carbon-14 to Carbon-12 in the bodies of plants, animals and humans which could be considered as “fixed” at the time of death.Prior to looking at the many flaws in the Carbon-14 Dating Technique, it should be noted that no radiometric technique is reliable.
