In last Tuesday’s lecture, radiocarbon dating was covered briefly.

By 2100, a dead plant could be almost identical to the Dead Sea scrolls, which are more than 2,000 years old.

Because atmospheric carbon 14 arises at about the same rate that the atom decays, Earth's levels of carbon 14 have remained fairly constant.

Once an organism is dead, however, no new carbon is actively absorbed by its tissues, and its carbon 14 gradually decays.

Furthermore, if a sample has been contaminated, scientists will know about it.

Ironically, given how supposedly useless carbon dating is claimed to be, Creation Ministries International rests part of their "101 Evidences" on carbon dating being a useful method for within several thousand years.

In fact, it has fluctuated a great deal over the years.
