That means the wood must also be at least that old.
I will not get into a heated debate about The Word of God so I change the subject after a while.
I remember I was like them and it took The Lord through His Holy Spirit to first save me and after that He opened my eyes to many things, including world historical events such as the flood of Noah's day. I can think of a few more options: 4) Make sure that 36 000 years is not an age one would expect to get from an undatable sample.
They can only choose the date or the explanation that best matches what they already believe.
C; C14-Datierung oder Radiocarbondatierung ist ein Verfahren zur radiometrischen Datierung kohlenstoffhaltiger, insbesondere organischer Materialien.
This rock is classified as belonging to the Upper Tertiary geological system.
Evolutionary belief therefore maintains that this rock is around 20 million years old.
So anything which really millions of years old would have no detectable radiocarbon left, and would register as giving an ‘infinite radiocarbon age’.
Carbon dating, as it is often called, is thus never used to date ‘old’ fossils (which usually have no organic carbon left anyway).
These sorts of people want to keep everyone ignorant, many of whom are just as happy to remain wilfully ignorant. I have already talked to many about this both unbelievers and those who say they believe (but also believe in an old earth) showed them evidence, presented to them how the C14 dating works and it's shelf life and most of them got upset with me.
I even begged them to check these things for themselves and not to just take my word they wouldn't even do that.
Since fossils show death, suffering, bloodshed and disease, that means that in their view, all these ‘bad things’ must have been there long before Adam’s bringing sin into the world (Romans ), with the resultant Curse on creation (Romans –22).
