However, these excessively long ages are easily explained within the biblical worldview, and C should be present in specimens that are even a little more than 100,000 years old!
Nearly anyone can verify this for themselves using basic multiplication and division.
And 4,500 years is less than one radiocarbon half-life, so from Figure 2 we might expect 4,500-year-old samples to have C found within organic samples thought to date from the time of the Flood is generally only about 0.1 to 0.5 p MC.
From Figure 1, a value of 0.098 ≈ 0.1 p MC corresponds to 10 half-lives, or about 57,000 years.
Of course, he would realize that this age was nonsense, because he saw the fresh carcass.Could this be a clue that radioisotope “clocks” might have “ticked” at different rates in the past, and that this variation in “ticking” is different for different radioisotopes?If so, this would explain the discrepancy between the radiocarbon method and other radioisotope techniques.Smallest Detectable Amount of Radiocarbon Sensitive instruments called acceleration mass spectrometers (AMS) are used to count the C/C ratio in a sample drops below 0.001 p MC?One can estimate this time by dividing 100 p MC by 2 repeatedly until the resulting number drops below 0.001 p MC.Are these high radiocarbon “ages” a problem for the biblical worldview? First, remember that no detectable should be present within these samples if they really are millions of years old.
