One of the most popular dating methods, carbon-14 (14C), is used for dating plant or animal remains.
The book explains the basis for this method: “Radiocarbon is continuously created in the atmosphere through bombardment of nitrogen-14 (14N) by neutrons created by cosmic radiation.
“While an organism is alive and is taking in carbon from the atmosphere, it contains this balanced proportion of 14C.
However, at death the balance is upset, because replenishment by life processes such as feeding, breathing and photosynthesis ceases.
Here a new dating method has changed by 1,000 years the earliest accepted date of Mayan civilization. Radiometric dating methods (those measuring geologic time by rate of radioactive decay) have been used to date formations that could be associated with Noah’s Flood.
These dates supposedly prove these formations are millions of years old rather than thousands.
C., still earlier than any other known Maya settlement.The theory of evolution has become so ubiquitous in the scientific world today that it even distorts the way geological formations are dated.However, these dating methods have significant problems that can lead to serious errors of interpretation.This could only make sense if the mummies had been rewrapped hundreds of years later.Egyptologist speculate that that this might be so for some mummies, but not so for others.
