Question: "Is carbon dating a reliable method for determining the age of things?

" Answer: Carbon dating, or radiocarbon dating, like any other laboratory testing technique, can be extremely reliable, so long as all of the variables involved are controlled and understood.

Some examples of dates which contradict orthodox (evolutionary) views: , pub.

by Creation-Science Research Center) A question which could be asked after all this is: does radio-carbon, adjusted to fit the ‘non-uniform’ model, give any independent evidence of a worldwide catastrophe such as the Flood?

Several factors affect radiocarbon test results, not all of which are easy to control objectively.

For this reason, it’s preferable to date objects using multiple methods, rather than relying on one single test.

has upset the natural carbon balance by releasing huge quantities of C ratio was like before the industrial revolution, and all radiocarbon dating is made with this in mind.

How do we know what the ratio was before then, though, say thousands of years ago?

So it was expected that most deposits such as coal, gas, petrified trees, etc. In fact, of 15,000 dates in the journal to 1968, only three were classed ‘un-dateable’—most were of the sort which should have been in this category.
