Creationism vs radiometric dating
This means that we regard the bible as a uniquely inspired book given to mankind from the Creator" De Young 2005: 158).
In creating their C model, that premise is used as the foundation.
Before proposing their alternate theory about the residual C dead and thus providing an age for the samples around 50,000 years, the RATE team has come up with a theory for how such an inconsistency could occur.
After rejecting contamination as a possibility for the presence of background radiocarbon, the team has come up with a model in which the accounts outlined in the Bible, specifically Noah's flood, explains the observed C.
3) Because all life existed at the same time, more organic carbon was present before the flood than after.
4) Since there was more carbon overall, but not more C to carbon-12 was much smaller than it is today.
Since then, the technique has been widely used and continually improved.
They begin with the same assumption that they are trying to prove.The newest limit using cross-checking methods is around 26,000 years (Dotinga 2005).Without this calibration, atmospheric fluctuations in C cause some radiocarbon dates to have an error up to 10%.RATE researcher John Baumgardner has dealt specifically with radiocarbon dating.The RATE research in the area of radiocarbon has focused on the "blank" sample date.
