They should not change the facts to fit the theory."We didn't tell them that the bones they were dating were dinosaur bones. The Allosaurus dinosaur was supposed to be around 140,000,000 years.
( "Radioisotopes and the age of the earth" pg vii) To know if carbon dating is accurate, we would have to know how much carbon was in the atmosphere in the beginning, and also how long it has been increasing, or decreasing. It's like trying to figure out how long a candle has been burning, without knowing the rate at which it burns, or its original size.
See my commentary on Genesis 3 verse 17 "..cursed is the ground for your sake" When this happened there was a burst of radioactity that made the rocks appear older than they were.
Wouldn't this make all the rocks appear the same age?
So a date of 9,000 or 16,000 years is more likely to be less. Carbon dating is a good dating tool for some things that we know the relative date of. Willard Libby (December 17, 1908 September 8, 1980) and his colleagues discovered the technique of radiocarbon dating in 1949.
Libbey knew that atmospheric carbon would reach equilibrium in 30,000 years.
