14 carbon dating

Along with hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, and sulfur, carbon is a building block of biochemical molecules ranging from fats, proteins, and carbohydrates to active substances such as hormones.

All carbon atoms have a nucleus containing six protons.

There are two reasons uncalibrated dates must be mentioned: 1) this prevents people from making up any number they please, and 2) it is for the sake of posterity, where future scientists can check the results and apply new ideas of calibration. Radiocarbon dates are affected by many outside factors.

When I did the math from their results section of the YBP, they all turned out to be right around the year 1400 .

Examples: For all of these, and more, reasons, calibration is needed in C-14 dating.

Thus, reports generally specify the ‘raw’ numbers and the ‘fudged’ numbers.

While there is no proof that the rates were different in the past than they are today, there is also no proof that they were the same.

Thus radioactive dating relies purely on assumptions.

Plants take in atmospheric carbon dioxide by photosynthesis, and are ingested by animals.
