Carbon dating of genesis

If you follow the link in footnote 25 from my article you will see a link to the Belfast tree ring correlations, so your statement, “There are several tree-ring chronologies which are reported to agree with each other” is already answered.

Obviously I am questioning the conclusions of that study.

If one believes the story of Noah and applies that assumption to current scientific models, they do not conflict. In many ways, Carbon Dating is another example of science demonstrating the literal truths found in the Bible.

Unless the investigator was there to observe and measure all variables, it can never be known for certain that the final observed and measured ratios of a sample under investigation reflect a simple linear relationship going back into deep time.

Thanks for your question Bill; it is very involved and has multiple lines of reasoning within it.

I also mention supposed agreement for bristlecone pine (BCP) tree rings in my article, but that depends on matching rings from living and dead trees (“prone wood”) that has been C dated to multiple thousands of years.

This is highly subjective and goes against common sense, in that the wood should have rotted or disintegrated in all that supposed time.

It creates amazing scientific explanations for things such as the Grand Canyon, portions of the fossil record, and the tectonic plates.

If the earth were thousands of years old, the results of these tests would have fit in perfectly. Since the former is radioactive and decays at a constant pace while the latter is stable, the ratio between the two can determine the age of anything that was on the earth and breathed.

I’m going to go through this very quickly and touch on the basics; one could write a book on this topic and still have more to say. Once it stops breathing, it stops taking in C, scientists can use this to determine how long ago the creature leaving behind their remains had died.

It is not a matter of whether the science itself is faulty.

The reality is that the science is rather elegant in its function.
