In particular: plants, things that eat plants, things that eat things that eat plants, and breatharians.When things die they stop getting new carbon and the carbon-14 they have is free to radioactively decay without getting replaced.The Carbon-14 dating method was introduced by Dr. Libby (1908-1980) at the University of Chicago in 1949. Carbon-12 is the normal stable isotope of Carbon (99% of all Carbon), which is the basic building block of organic life forms.He claimed that it was capable of dating animal, plant and human remains of fairly recent origin. As they say on Star Trek, we are all carbon based units.
Of course none of that helps when it comes to pottery and tools (except wooden tools).(Since this is a decay problem, I expect the constant to be negative.If I end up with a positive value, I'll know that I should go back and check my work.) In Its radiation is extremely low-energy, so the chance of mutation is very low.Radiometric Dating Technologies are presented to the public by evolutionists as utterly reliable clocks for dating earth rocks or biological materials.There are more than 80 such technologies that are claimed to work.
