"Muscle tissue from beneath the scalp of a mummified musk ox found in frozen muck at Fairbanks Creek, Alaska, has a radiocarbon age of 24,000, while the radiocarbon age of hair from a hind limb of the carcass is 17,200.
A life span exceeding 7,000 years for a specimen of this species is doubtful.
CONTENTS: Scientists Speak about Radiocarbon Dating This material is excerpted from the book, DATING OF TIME IN EVOLUTION. Lee, "Radiocarbon: Ages in Error," in Creation Research Society Quarterly, September 1982, pp. But only the scientific community is told that fact.
An asterisk ( * ) by a name indicates that person is not known to be a creationist. "Well authenticated dates are known only back as far as about 1600 B. "There are two basic assumptions in the radiocarbon method.
Creation science discovered proofs of rapid nuclear decay of radioactive isotopes resulting in 5 proofs of radiometric error in dating using carbon 14 dating that occurred and the time of creation and at the time of Noah's Ark of Mt.
Much more must be done on chemical purification of samples."—*F. This is a most serious limitation, for who can be sure that a given sample has not been moistened? Results of such errors have continuously showed up in carbon dating, where fresh specimens were dated at thousands of years of age.Creation Scientists have proven that there was a rapid decay of Carbon 14 at the time of the flood.In RADIOISOTOPES AND THE AGE OF THE EARTH, Volume II Results of a Young-Earth Creationist Research Initiative edited by Larry Vardiman, Andrew A. Chaffin, Institute for Creation Research, El Cajon, CA and Creation Research Society, Chino Valley, AZ, 2006, these researchers clearly demonstrate that conventional radioisotope nuclear decay dating methods are accurate, with slight (millions of years out of billions of years) contradictions between alpha and beta nuclear decay measurements back to the time of the Biblical flood of Noah's Ark of Mt.Ararat and to the time of Biblical creation six thousand years ago.Some radio halo-bearing rocks were found in rocks associated with fossils.Since animals would have been quickly buried and thus fossilized instead of decaying during a Great Flood, it is reasonable to assume the possibility that neutron bombardment may have occurred at the same time as the Great Flood."In a gravel deposit at the Union Pacific Mammoth Site near Rawlins, Wyoming, a mammoth skeleton was found together with artifacts that indicate the animal was killed by man.Radiocarbon dating of ivory from the center of the tusks establishes the kill date at approximately 11,300 radiocarbon years ago. von Fange, "Time Upside Down," in Creation Research Society Quarterly, June 1974, p. "Although it was hailed as the answer to the prehistorian's prayer when it was first announced, there has been increasing disillusion with the [radiocarbon] method because of the chronological uncertainties—in some cases absurdities—that would follow a strict adherence to published C-14 dates . What bids to become a classic example of `C-14 irresponsibility' is the 6,000 year spread of 11 determinations for Jarmo, a prehistoric village in northeastern Iraq which, on the basis of all archeological evidence, was not occupied for more than 500 consecutive years."—*C. Reed, "Animal Domestication in the Prehistoric Near East," in Science, 130 (1959), p. "A survey of the 15,000 radiocarbon dates published through the year 1969 in the publication, Radiocarbon, revealed the following significant facts: "[a] Of the dates of 9,671 specimens of trees, animals, and man, only 1,146 or about 12 percent have radiocarbon ages greater than 12,530 years. By contrast, this revised approach has the effect of `compressing' radiocarbon time,' and speeding up the rate of man's cultural development."—Erich A.
