Imagine a tank with water flowing in at a certain rate, and flowing out again at the same rate (see diagram below). If you saw it for the first time, you wouldn’t be able to work out how old it was—how long it had been since it was ‘switched on’. Imagine the same tank, this time it is not yet full and the top tap is flowing more quickly than the bottom one is leaking out—this gives you a way of measuring how long ago the whole system was ‘switched on’ and it also tells you that that can’t have been too long ago (see diagram above).
Libby knew that if these figures were correct, it would mean that the atmosphere was young, so he dismissed the results as being due to experimental error!
(We are not implying dishonesty here, merely showing how powerfully the evolutionary/uniformitarian concepts of Earth history influence great scientists to mould or discard evidence which appears to contradict that viewpoint.) What about modern measurements, using advanced technology such as satellites?
Natural potassium contains 0.001 18 % of the radioisotopes k-40 ,which decays ,with a half life of 1.28 Gega years,partly to the stable isotope of argon , Ar -40.by Creation-Science Research Center) A question which could be asked after all this is: does radio-carbon, adjusted to fit the ‘non-uniform’ model, give any independent evidence of a worldwide catastrophe such as the Flood? Certainly if there was such a Flood, as we maintain from several other lines of evidence and reasoning, most living things would have perished, and so we would expect a ‘cut-off’ point at this time. All living organisms absorb carbon from atmospheric CO2 ,but after death ,absorption ceases and the once constant ratio C-14/C-12 decreases due to the decay of C-14.[latex]_\quad \longrightarrow _\quad e \xrightarrow [/latex]The C-14 concentration in a sample ,found by using a sensitive counter of particles,gives an estimate of the time elapsed since death of the living organism.The age of geological specimens,which can be many millions of years old,is determined from the proportion of a natural radio nuclide (with a very long half life ) and its daughter nuclide contained in a sample of rock or mineral.
In other words, the further you go back, the more you have to shrink the radiocarbon dates to make them fit the facts.
