Why carbon dating is flawed


Scientists use a technique called radiometric dating to estimate the ages of rocks, fossils, and the earth.



This is a critical assumption in the dating process.There are two main applications for radiometric dating.One is for potentially dating fossils (once-living things) using carbon-14 dating, and the other is for dating rocks and the age of the earth using uranium, potassium and other radioactive atoms.So, a carbon atom might have six neutrons, or seven, or possibly eight—but it would always have six protons.

An “isotope” is any of several different forms of an element, each having different numbers of neutrons.

This has caused many in the church to reevaluate the biblical creation account, specifically the meaning of the word “day” in Genesis 1.
