Radiocarbon Dating and it’s Limitation regarding the PreFlood World

We are living in a material world and science is made by material … girls?

Well, one thing is for sure, science is just a method for searching the truth and nothing more. It’s a technique, not a religion. But some people create their own private religion out of everything. This is a shame!

I promised myself to be not too aggressive regarding this hot topic “radiocarbon dating“, because many scientists and scientific educated assistants are well-intentioned and they do not misuse science for propagating lies about history. But this “well-intentioned” men and womens are trained in institutions, universities or schools which promote a materialistic point of view. They absorb this spirit of materialism (they breath the contaminated air), even if this would not affect directly their faith, but it forms their scientific worldview and it became a very restricted materialistic worldview that is contradictory to the Truth in many aspects.

So this good people are now living with a split worldview, a dualistic one, not a holistic and harmonious one which is conform to the Bible account of the creation and the catastrophic event like the global flood at the time of Noah. Could this materialistic worldview embedded in a spiritual hungry human create a cause to stumble? I don’t think so, because real faith is not based on single scientific theories. But it provides a non uniform worldview, separating religion from science. Let’s now see if we cannot bring them together, at least for this “radiocarbon dating” topic.

How does Radiocarbon Dating work?

Co­smic rays enter the earth’s atmosphere in large numbers every day. For example, every person is hit by about half a million cosmic rays every hour. It is not uncommon for a cosmic ray to collide with an atom in the atmosphere, creating a secondary cosmic ray in the form of an energetic neutron, and for these energetic neutrons to collide with nitrogen atoms. When the neutron collides, a nitrogen-14 (seven protons, seven neutrons) atom turns into a carbon-14 atom (six protons, eight neutrons) and a hydrogen atom (one proton, zero neutrons). Carbon-14 is radioactive, with a half-life of about 5,700 years.

As soon as a living organism dies, it stops taking in new carbon. The ratio of carbon-12 to carbon-14 at the moment of death is the same as every other living thing, but the carbon-14 decays and is not replaced. The carbon-14 decays with its half-life of 5,700 years, while the amount of carbon-12 remains constant in the sample. By looking at the ratio of carbon-12 to carbon-14 in the sample and comparing it to the ratio in a living organism, it is possible to determine the age of a formerly living thing fairly precisely.

The Calibration Problem

The ratio of C-14 to C-12 in the atmosphere is not constant, therefore calibration is necessary. It have shown that the ratio of C-14 to C-12 has varied significantly during the history of the Earth. In order to “calibrate” the measurement in a accurate way we need to know the atmospheric conditions during the different epochs of the earth. Catastrophic events, meteors, sun cycles and sun radiation anomalies, volcanic eruptions would change the conditions drastically. Our atmosphere and our solar system are not static. And geology findings proves that in the past catastrophic events occurred, and despite this facts the radiocarbon dating is still considered a accurate dating method.

Volcanoes are able to alter the atmospheric conditions and the radiocarbon dating. Calibration is therefore a very difficult task, because it requires the accurate knowledge of past climatic events.

No matter how “useful” it is though, the radiocarbon method is still not capable of yielding accurate and reliable results. There are gross discrepancies, the chronology is uneven and relative, and the accepted dates are actually selected dates. This whole blessed thing is nothing but 13th century alchemy, and it all depends upon which funny paper you read.

What does the Bible say about our Atmosphere?

The creation account in Genesis says that God divided the water on the earth into two sections, one above the atmosphere (the expansion) and one below on the surface of the earth. So the water above the expansion (or over the thermosphere) acted like a shield against radiation from the sun and outer space (water vapour canopy). This “atmospheric condition“, let’s call it the preflood atmospheric condition, got a low radiation and the production of C-14 was very low.

Every attempt to use radiocarbon dating for artifacts deriving from the preflood world without the right calibration will result in a exaggerated dating. Instead of a few thousand years it will result in thousand of thousand years. Calibrating the radiocarbon dating setup without this knowledge leads simply to false conclusions.

The water vapour canopy was one source of the rain during the Great Flood. The event that triggered the massive geothermal upheaval during Noah’s life also made the water vapour canopy unstable. (See Genesis chapters 6 to 8 for the reason for the Flood and details of this event that reshaped the earth’s crust.) Over a period of forty days the water vapour layer was totally destroyed. This would have allowed production of C-14 to immediately increase enormously.

Note: This informations provided here are not a evidence for a “young earth“, because the Bible does not claim that God created earth in six days of 1000 years each. The earth was prepared during six time periods for enabling life, but like Genesis 1:1 states the heaven and the earth was already created before the “six days” periods began.

Materialism against the Truth

Materialists have a good reason for propagating false theories like the Ice Age hypothesis instead telling the truth about the global great flood which indeed occurred and for which evidence is so overwhelming. This system would never run smoothly if people would finally wake up and realize how illusionary it is. Every layer of this system is a lie, build up on another lie, and so on. All this layers forms together a huge complex system which enables egoistic people to act free without boundaries. Some of this people are on the top of the pyramid and they KNOW how this system works and how the group mind of simple people works. They know that every field needs to be censored and protected by dogmatic teachings, from science to art to religion. For all this different fields the wrong teachings represents the restrictive boundaries against a new free world. Inside this boundaries other laws are applied not based on eternal principles, and inside this boundaries eternity seems not to exist. Indeed they fear the truth because it represents a threat to their world based on lies. So you can imagine how science works today in this materialistic world? Do you think that they would ever admit a theory based on truth if this represents a threat to all the layers of this old world?
