The presence of radiocarbon in these diamonds where there should be none is thus sparkling evidence for a ‘young’ world, as the Bible records.
Radiocarbon dating can easily establish that humans have been on the earth for over twenty thousand years, at least twice as long as creationists are willing to allow.
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.
) is only 5,730 years—that is, every 5,730 years, half of it decays away.
Thus they had a radiocarbon ‘age’ far less than a million years! I appreciate you sharing all these helps and resources.
Dr Baumgardner repeated this with six more alluvial diamonds from Namibia, and these had even more radiocarbon.
When the organisms die, they stop incorporating new C-14, and the old C-14 starts to decay back into N-14 by emitting beta particles.
The older an organism's remains are, the less beta radiation it emits because its C-14 is steadily dwindling at a predictable rate.
