Errors are feared in carbon dating
Seagrass plants have an excellent capacity for taking up and storing carbon in the oxygen-depleted seabed, where it decomposes much slower than on land.
This oxygen-free sediment traps the carbon in the dead plant material which may then remain buried for hundreds of years.
Atoms are made up of much smaller particles called protons, neutrons, and electrons.
An experiment made things clearer: COMMENT: Private companies and public sectors collect our data every day and minute.
In a democratic society, we need to teach children to become critically aware and understand how data processing and digital technologies really work.
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.
The atomic number corresponds to the number of protons in an atom.
If this claim is true, the biblical account of a young earth (about 6,000 years) is in question, since C dates of tens of thousands of years are common.1 When a scientist’s interpretation of data does not match the clear meaning of the text in the Bible, we should never reinterpret the Bible.
