After 5,730 years, half (or 50 carbon-14 atoms) would remain.After another 5,730 years only half of those 50 (or 25 carbon-14 atoms would remain.) Think of the red ink molecules slowly disappearing at the same rate.The fact that the C doesn’t matter in a living thing—because it is constantly exchanging carbon with its surroundings, the ‘mixture’ will be the same as in the atmosphere and in all living things.
) is only 5,730 years—that is, every 5,730 years, half of it decays away.
One day, about 5,000 years ago, most of the water suddenly drained from the pool.
Since then, the amount of water only fills a bathtub, but one drop of red ink continued to fall into the bathtub each year.
According to evolutionists, the diamonds formed about 1–3 billion years ago.
C at all if they really were over a billion years old, yet the radiocarbon lab reported that there was over 10 times the detection limit.
