Radiometric dating is the method for establishing the age of objects by measuring the levels of radioisotopes in the sample. It decays to nitrogen 14 with a half life of 5730 years.
Carbon 14 is created by cosmic rays in the upper atmosphere.
We don't have all the answers, but we do have the sure testimony of the Word of God to the true history of the world." Most individual creation scientists and creation science organizations are called "new-earth creationists." They believe in a literal interpretation of the creation story/stories in Genesis -- the first book in the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament): From internal biblical information, they have concluded that the earth, its life forms, and the rest of the universe were created by God, less than 10,000 years ago; i.e. Many believe in the creation estimate of 4004 BCE by Bishop James Ussher, a 17They believe that people gathered in Babel with the intent of building a tower that would reach Heaven.Further, a remarkable set of “coincidences” leading to a 5,730-year half-life for carbon-14 make it uniquely suited to date things like Hezekiah’s tunnel, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and other biblically significant artifacts.However, continued burning of fossil fuels will affect the ability of scientists to find accurate radiocarbon dates for anything less than 1,000 years old.The mention of global warming—or its more current name, climate change—tends to bring out a lot of strong opinions.
Those skeptical of human-induced climate change are often labeled “climate deniers.” Others use terms like scam or hoax toward the whole idea of global warming.
other isotope pairs cover intermediate time periods between the spans for carbon 14 and uranium.
