CARBON-14 -Evolution needs time. It has to have it. Creation theory
can survive either way - either 6,000 years, or long ages that "God" started
and put into motion. But for strict evolutionists lots and lots of
time is required ... particularly since we don't see evolution happening
in our world today!
Carbon-14 is but one of several radiometric dating methods that evolutionists
consult when they build consensus on the age of particular fossils and
(again by consensus, not by testable-repeatable science) decide how to
arrange what they think our ancient history must have been. They
believe that with enough time and chance - just maybe some unscientific
reactions may beat the odds and "improve all by themselves." God can then
be ignored and evolutionists can claim to be logical and forward thinking
in their ignorance of what's most important in this life. But if the long
eons just weren't there in the first place then evolution falls like a
house of cards. The radioactive dating methods like Carbon-14, Potassium-Argon,
and others, employ assumptions. Parts of each measurement are based
in known solid science, but there are assumed portions! And
it is a fact that often, even when they get the radiometric dates back
from a sample they'll reject it in favor of their consensus instead.
But separate from that - there are other (non-radiometric) dating methods
based upon Earth processes. We live on a dynamic (not static) planet; things
Evolutionary dating methods do not work and different methods used on
the same sample often contradict each other. Secondly, derived supposed
dates (from the same material samples) often completely contradict each
other using the same radioactive dating method! Creationists can show example,
after example, after example of documented bogus radiometric dates. (Please
see the article links below.)
"Young Earth Creationists" believe that there is no good evidence supporting
the notion that the Earth could be over 10,000 years old. The true
evidence just isn't there. But there is very good evidence supporting
belief in a very *young* Earth. We're not "standing against science"
in stating this - in fact we're the ones, though in the minority today,
who are making the distinctions between bad evolutionary science (to prop
up a particular religious belief system: atheism) and good, reliable science.
The major rivers (Nile, Mississippi, Yangtzee, etc.) all show only *thousands*
of years of deposition. The Earth isn't millions of years old - that's
part of the religion of evolution, one that stands against science more
often than it stands with science.
Evolutionists avoid the reliable Earth dating methods
. Other Earth dating methods,
ones that show a much younger Earth include: magnetic field decay, the
rate of salinity increase in the oceans, helium accumulated in the atmosphere,
major rivers erosion and deposition, and many others. Scientifically speaking,
there is simply no way the Earth could be billions of years old. (And thus,
evolution never had time to "happen" all by chance.) Evolution remains
a spiritual deception cloaked in "science, falsely so called." (text

nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything
magically rearranged itself for no reason whatsoever into self-replicating bits which then
turned into dinosaurs. Makes perfect sense?
