Wiens, a physicist employed by the Space & Atmospheric Sciences Group at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, presents his paper as a long and detailed tutorial on the theory behind radioactive dating.It’s available on the web via the American Scientific Affiliation, a fellowship of Christians in science.After all, this what the archeologist guessed in their published books.Some believe trees are known to be as old as 9,000 years. A lot of people doubt this claim for various good reasons I wont go into here.So they tested some of the ring sequences by C14 to put the sequences in the 'right' order.
Furthermore, from the detailed chronologies given, we know that creation happened about 4,000 years before Christ.And this big sequence is then used to 'correct' C14 dates. (3.) Even if the rate of decay is constant, without a knowledge of the exact ratio of C12 to C14 in the initial sample, the dating technique is still subject to question.(4.) Traditional 14C testing assumes equilibrium in the rate of formation and the rate of decay.If something carbon dates at 7,000 years we believe 5,000 is probably closer to reality (just before the flood).Robert Whitelaw has done a very good job illustrating this theory using about 30,000 dates published in Radio Carbon over the last 40 years.In fact, 14C is forming FASTER than the observed decay rate.
