Since radioactive carbon is a transient element, evolutionists cannot prove that it existed when the earth was created.
It is produced daily by the decomposition of heavier radioactive elements, and could be much greater today than it was six thousand years ago. This could produce enormous errors in carbon dating.
(Sci DF) is an independent association (created in 2016) integrated by a team of many interdisiciplinary young and dynamic professionals from the scientific, communication and managerial fields from Barcelona.
We aim at bringing scientists together and foster education, debates and engagement regarding how science relates to politics, economics and society and vice versa.
For example, some zircons have been radiometrically dated to about 4 billion years old.
The decay process for the zircons involves alpha particle emission from uranium and/or thorium inside the zircon.
For example, technicians must assume today’s rate of 14-C production is equal to past production rates. As a result, plants and animals that lived 800 years ago would have had a lower percentage of 14-C in them than plants or animals that lived 100 years ago.
Please read in our communique the latest advancements on this issue (launch of M4Sc BCN) and in this press release of M4Sc BCN on the detailed program of the event.
Let's look at how the radiometric dating method works.
Over time, a certain amount of radioactive material decays.
An alpha particle is simply a helium nucleus, which will quickly gather up 2 electrons and become a helium atom.
(Electrons are quickly accumulated when you rub a balloon on some material - perhaps your hair - and then place the balloon on a wall or ceiling.
