I  WAS  WATCHING  AN  HOUR  LONG  LECTURE  ON  THE  “PURE-FLIX”  CHANNEL.  IT  WAS  A  GUY  TALKING  ABOUT  CARBON  DATING,  EVOLUTION,  CREATION  AND  ALL  THAT  DEBATE.  HE  SAID  NO  DINOSAURS  HAD  BEEN  CARBON  DATED,  AND  JUST  KINDA  LEFT  YOU  HANGING  SOMEWHAT.  I  THOUGHT  I  BETTER  LOOK  INTO  CARBON  DATING  AND  IF  ANY  DINOSAURS  HAVE  BEEN  CARBON-14  DATED.


CONCERNING  CARBON  14  DATING  HERE  IS  A  SHORT  OVERVIEW  FROM  THE  INTERNET——



How Does Carbon 14 Dating Work?





Carbon-14 dating uses the ratio of radioactive carbon-14 to non-radioactive carbon-12 to determine if the ratio is the same as in living organisms, or if it is lower, indicating that the carbon-14 has decayed during a period of thousands of years. Carbon-14 has a half-life of 5,730 years, which is the amount of time that it takes for half of a given sample of carbon-14 to decay.

Carbon-14 is only a small percentage of the total carbon in the environment and originates in the atmosphere when cosmic rays and high-speed particles from space hit nitrogen atoms. Although the physics are more complicated than this, essentially the nitrogen atoms lose a proton and gain a neutron to become carbon-14.

Plants take up carbon-14 when they convert CO2 into sugar and build cellular structures. Animals take up carbon-14 when they eat plants or other animals. These organisms no longer take in new carbon-14 once they've died, so the carbon-14 isn't replenished as it decays back into nitrogen.

Carbon-14 dating currently uses a technique called accelerator mass spectrometry, and it's able to determine the ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 in a sample. The older technique takes longer and relies on the detection of beta radiation from the decaying carbon-14. Measure the number of decay events, and then compare the number of decays per unit mass per unit time to the decay activity in living organisms.

Carbon-14 dating has a 95 percent accuracy when determining the age of organic material up to 50,000 years old. After 50,000 years, however, the amount of carbon-14 remaining is too low for an accurate reading.

A  HALF  LIFE  IS  LIKE  A  12  INCH  BLOCK  HALF  OF  ITS  LIFE  IN  

5,730  YEARS  BRINGS  IT  DOWN  GTO  6  INCHES;  HALF  LIFE  OF  THAT,  ANOTHER  5,730  YEARS  BRINGS  IT  DOWN  TO  3  INCHES  AND  SO  ETC.


READING  MORE  ABOUT  CARBON  14  DATING,  YOU  HAVE  TO  MAKE  SURE  WHAT  YOUR  DATING  IS  NOT  CONTAMINATED  BY  OTHER  THINGS;  SO  YOU  COULD  SAY  IT  HAS  TO  BE  SUPER  CLEAN  TO  GET  ACCURATE  CARBON  DATING.  THIS  WE  SHALL  SEE  ON  OTHER  UPLOADS  I’LL  BRING. AND WE MUST REMEMBER WAS THE BREAK DOWN OF CARBON ALWAYS THE SAME....NO ONE KNOWS BUT GOD, IF NOT MANY DATES COULD WELL BE IN THE DUGOUT, AND WE ARE IN THE DUG WAITING FOR THE NEXT BATTER OF SCIENCE TO COME OUR WAY WITH BETTER SCIENCE
