Is carbon dating the truth
How is it that Evolutionist can’t wrap their heads around this?

Evolutionists have attempted to blame these surprising results on a number of mechanisms. Furthermore, laboratories take great pains to keep contamination to a minimum, and researchers have found that, provided a sufficiently large testing sample is used (in the ballpark of 100 milligrams or so), the amount of such possible lab contamination is negligible compared to the C already present within the specimen.
Finally, although contamination can sometimes occur, it should not be assumed in a particular instance unless there are good reasons to believe that it has.
Creation scientists have estimated (based upon the amounts of organic matter thought to be contained within the sedimentary layers) that the carbon in the pre-Flood biosphere may have been 300 to 700 times greater than what is present in today’s world.
From Figure 1, a value of 0.098 ≈ 0.1 p MC corresponds to 10 half-lives or about 57,000 years.This value of 0.2 p MC is very close to the value of 0.195 p MC found within Figure 1.About nine half-lives would have to elapse for a starting value of 100 p MC to decrease to 0.2 p MC.Second, such large calculated ages are based on the C/C ratio has remained unchanged for tens of thousands of years.A global flood like the one described in the Bible would invalidate this assumption.
