It is impossible to give an evolutionary sequence to the human fossils because there is a coverage gap involving the dating methods which evolutionists believe are the most reliable—radiocarbon and potassium-argon (K-Ar).
Welcome to the K12 section of the Radiocarbon WEBinfo site.
The aim here is to provide clear, understandable information relating to radiocarbon dating for the benefit of K12 students, as well as lay people who are not requiring detailed information about the method of radiocarbon dating itself.
I have tried here to answer some of the frequently asked questions that I receive from students via email, as well as providing some basic information about scientific dating methods.
"Everything which has come down to us from heathendom is wrapped in a thick fog; it belongs to a space of time we cannot measure.
Since the morphology of a fossil cannot be changed, it is obvious that the dating is the more subjective element of the two items.
Yet, accurate dating of fossils is so essential that the scientific respectability of evolution is contingent upon fossils having appropriate dates.Carbon dating, used since 1948, is currently the main method of testing artifacts for age.My objective through this essay is to disprove the accuracy of the Carbon 14 dating method. It works on the principle that the carbon 14-C, is radioactive. This is balanced by the fact that 14-C is constantly produced in atmospheric reactions.Evolution places severe demands upon fossils used to support it.A fossil in an evolutionary sequence must have both the proper morphology (shape) to fit that sequence and an appropriate date to justify its position in that sequence.When an animal dies it is taken out of the carbon cycle.
