Radiocarbon dating assumes that the carbon 14carbon 12 ratio

These were taken from a conference in 2012Fossils, coal, oil, natural gas, limestone, marble, and graphite from every Flood-related rock layer—and even some pre-Flood deposits—have all contained measurable quantities of radiocarbon.

Recent finds of Mary Schweitzer are also relevant for the dating of ancient bones.

Mary Schweitzer, a professor at North Carolina State University (North Carolina), has found soft tissue and protein in dinosaur bones.

These results were discussed in a recent Mary Schweitzer’s results shows that essentially all the remaining material in the dinosaur bone is original because she had no trouble finding these young appearing proteins.

If there had been contamination, then it would have introduced other substances into the soft tissue.

If decay rates were faster in the past, then even the C14 dates could be too old.

Carbon 14 is an isotope of carbon with two extra neutrons in the nucleus. The rate at which this happens varies to some extent.

Even more, proteins in this tissue retain their structure.

Extraordinary efforts were made to eliminate all contamination from the measuring apparatus.
