QUESTION: Can we improve the accuracy of carbon dating?
ANSWER: Can we improve the accuracy of carbon dating?
So if scientists believe that a creature lived millions of years ago, then they would need to date it another way. They assume dinosaurs lived millions of years ago (instead of thousands of years ago like the bible says).
Many people are under the false impression that carbon dating proves that dinosaurs and other extinct animals lived millions of years ago.
What many do not realize is that carbon dating is not used to date dinosaurs. Carbon dating is only accurate back a few thousand years.
I'm confident that we can improve the accuracy of carbon dating somewhat, but only if we acknowledge and carefully study the various factors which may play a role in how reliable our foundational assumptions are.
In order to improve the accuracy of carbon dating, we must look at why these assumptions are questionable and how we can compensate for the uncertainties raised by our doubts.
Scientists have made progress with the second assumption by employing the use of dendrochronology (tree-ring dating). God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.
