The Half-life of Carbon is only 5730 years old….

The Half-life of Carbon is only 5730 years old…. So when people tell you that carbon dating of fossils proves that the earth is millions of years old, they are lying.

“Let’s suppose we find a mammoth’s skull and we want to date it to determine how long ago it lived. We can measure in the laboratory how many carbon-14 atoms are still in the skull. If we assume that the mammoth originally had the same number of carbon- 14 atoms in its bones as living animals do today (estimated at one carbon-14 atom for every trillion carbon-12 atoms), then, because we also know the radiocarbon decay rate, we can calculate how long ago the mammoth died. It’s really quite simple.

This dating method is similar to the principle behind an hourglass.6 The sand grains that originally filled the top bowl represent the carbon-14 atoms in the living mammoth just before it died. It’s assumed to be the same number of carbon-14 atoms as in elephants living today. With time those sand grains fall to the bottom bowl, so the new number represents the carbon-14 atoms left in the mammoth skull when we found it.

The difference in the number of sand grains represents the number of carbon-14 atoms that have decayed back to nitrogen-14 since the mammoth died. Because we have measured the rate at which the sand grains fall (the radiocarbon decay rate), we can then calculate how long it took those carbon-14 atoms to decay, which is how long ago the mammoth died.

That’s how the radiocarbon method works. And because the half-life of carbon-14 is just 5,730 years, radiocarbon dating of materials containing carbon yields dates of only thousands of years, not the dates over millions of years that conflict with the framework of earth history provided by the Bible, God’s eyewitness account of history.”

A quote from Stan Rogers: 7 Non-Spiritual Reasons the Earth is only a Few Thousand – NOT Millions of Years Old

– As the sun burns it’s losing 5 feet of mass per hour which means it’s shrinking which means it use to be heavier which means gravity was also stronger. This tells us that 20 or 30 million years ago the sun would have been so big it would have torched the earth and boiled our oceans.

– Our calenders only go back to the year 4000 BC. The population curve started about 4500 year ago, the flood was about 4400 years ago. How many billions of people should we have by now?

– The oldest known living trees are Bristlecone pine tree which are about 4844 years old.

– When they drill for oil ,the pressure is so great it sometimes reaches 20,000 lbs per square inch and scientist say that the pressure should have leaked off in 10 to 15,000 yrs.

– Outer space is full of dust, so why did the astronauts only find less of an inch of it when they last landed on the moon if our solar system is a billion years old? They expected to find 8200 feet of it. This is why the craft had those big landing pads.

– The moon is getting further away from the earth at a rate of 1.5 inches per year ,so just one million years ago ,the earth would have flooded over twice a week due to high tide.

– The Mid- Ocean Ridge is a seam in the earth that wraps around the earth like a seam in baseball. Gradualism is blown apart by what happen in Mount St Helen.

2 Peter 3

For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

 

You have to be ignorant WILLINGLY to ignore the fact that God destroyed the earth by a flood a few thousand years ago, and that He is going to destroy it again by fire and start it brand new with Jesus Christ installed physically as King!
