Radio carbon dating disproved add adult dating link
But, as C-14 continuously decays, it is also continuously being replaced by new C-14 being formed.
How carbon-14 enters an organism Most C-14 will combine with oxygen to produce radioactive carbon dioxide (C-14 O-2).
The displaced neutrons bond with nitrogen-14 (N-14) converting it into C-14.
Because C-14 is radioactive, it is unstable, and is constantly decaying back into N-14.
Since plants breath carbon dioxide, they will intake some C-14 as well and make it part of their tissue.
Animals, in turn, eat plants or other animals that eat plants, receiving the C-14.
Be cautious of accepting a carbon age One should not accept any age from a dating method, including carbon dating, without knowing exactly how the dating method works and its limitations.
Many people also don’t realize that carbon dating (along with other radioactive dating methods) is based upon unverifiable assumptions.
Rather I am conceding due to no current evidence for the contrary).While this doesn’t render the dating method useless, it does bring its overall accuracy into question.
