Carbon-14 Dating: all viewpoints

Sponsored link.


Note:

The North American meaning of the term "billion" is used in this essay: 1 billion is equal to 1,000 million.

Overview:

The C-14 technique was developed in 1947 by a team of researchers, headed by Willard F. Libby. He won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1960 for this discovery.

Carbon-14 dating (a.k.a. C-14 dating) is one of many radioisotope measuring techniques for estimating the age of objects. C-14 dating is limited to the study of carbon-bearing objects.

Among essentially all scientists, C-14 dating is regarded as an accurate method of dating carbon-bearing items less than 50,000 years old.

Among essentially all believers in new-Earth creationism, C-14 dating is unreliable and is not to be trusted.

C-14 dating is of major concern to Jews, Christians and Muslims, because if it is accurate, then it throws grave doubt upon many events described in the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament), Christian Scriptures (New Testament) and Qur'an.

Topics covered in this section:

bulletHow C-14 testing works
 
bulletIts limitations and its extension to older dates
 
bulletCurrent status; acceptance and rejection
 
bulletReligious implications
 
bulletWhy most religious conservatives reject the C-14 dating system
