Creation v. Evolution: How Carbon Dating Works

3236 ratings | 153044 views
Recently Bill Nye and Ken Ham had a debate regarding the validity of evolution and creationism. This debate mixed with the recent discovery of the earliest known human footprints outside Africa is leading a big question to arise: How does carbon dating work? Well, Trace did some digging and is here to tell you all about carbon dating and other ways we can know the age of an object or fossil.

Well here is famous example about the accuracy of ''carbon'' dating... Iceman Ötzi, they carbon dated him and got ''accurate'' age, then they carbon dated the hay inside Ötzi's boots and thats when things got weird... The hay inside Ötzis boots were much younger than the body of Ötzi himself, meaning that someone must have found the corpse of Ötzi and been like ''Oh god no, you have old fashioned boots... Here have a new pair''.

just look at geological artifacts found that are in the Bible and look up written artifacts and written accounts from Aristotle Plato and many other well-known Greek and Roman Scholars and you will find that every account in the Bible is correct not to mention the scientific theories that show how dinosaurs were killed simultaneously by a flood and that's the rock sediment layers are compacted in layers because of the rapid succession that they were buried during the flood also don't forget the fact that there is no link creature between species that supposed to cause evolution and there is no evidence inside of any specimen that we have found I shows any evidence of species changing over time every single supposed to specie such as Lucy has been repeatedly debunked by both creationist and skeptic evolutionist Darwin himself said that there is a major problem with his theory: hundreds upon thousands of millions of fossil samples that are supposed to be the species in between human and ape or in between different kinds of dinosaurs for example are 100% missing and we have not found a single one. however with the Bible as I previously mentioned we have found almost every city that is in the Bible to be a real life City. We have found historical written accounts of earthquakes and the sky darkening at the time of Jesus death written by the most famous ancient Scholars and their name slips my mind not to mention the actual written record in Roman history that has been found and translated in uncovered that shows proof of the events that happened that night and yes we have found Noah's ark - I copied from another commitment

See I don't think that carbon dating alone is worthless, but he even just stated the fact that at a certain depth scientists have to rely on a lot of assumptions. The thing is that at that depth there are also anomalies that the common person is not fully familiar with and we don't discuss them enough because the common public (public as opposed to scientists) perspective is that they are unimportant. I'm not saying the Earth is only 6000 years old, but what I am saying is that at a certain point, we make a TON of assumptions backed up only by other assumptions and the hope that things have always operated the same way. A lot can happen in even 10,000 years. I'm not sold on the idea that things have been THAT consistent for 4.5 billion years. For all we know, it could be half that, especially since it seems like a radioactive isotope with a half-life of 5000 wouldn't even be measurable after that length of time. I mean it's even possible that if an asteroid killed the dinosaurs, that it could have effected the levels of different isotopes in some way, especially if it blocked sunlight for a significant period of time. And yet nobody questions this stuff more.

Carbon Dating is Sudo Science and about as right as the movie 'Tire'! lol... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uB4qHneHB1E Which is the kind of Movie this iDiot would write, star in as the Brainless Rubber Tire and think was 'Science' too! :DDD Math is Science..... but Carbon Dating is so variable it's pathetic. Tell me how you an item can be alive and be Carbon 14 Dated to Millions of yrs ago? Let me know how they can find elastic stretchy veins/arteries in Dinosaur Bones so old they're afraid to process them. But when they do apply acid to dissolve some bone material it dissolves the bone and leaves DNA material? How about Science seems to have been able to Sequence Dinosaur DNA but not Mankind's completely? What a Crock. Like I said Math is Science..... but only Bill Nye the Science Turd Brain thinks Carbon Dating is Science!!! ....oh and this leftover from the Dinosaur Age! ;-P

jbrosupra (1 month ago)
Carbon dating is unreliable and only goes back thousands of years. It is affected by many things. And its not "basic knowledge" its a guess or theory. No one lived 5000 years to measure that. Its a psuedo science and as fake as u claim religion is. And about the layers? Theres thousands of trees found fossilized in sedimentation. The problem that shows for ur theory u claim as fact??? The layers wouldnt have had time to form around a live tree like that. Try again
jason sims (1 month ago)
What's tests were done over and over again to the point of repeatability that this is accurate? If someone wanted to try this for the first time, what's information on the matter is proven and solid? There are two ways to prove how old a rock is. Take a rock that was just made from a volcano and test it every year. For rocks older or that were found in the dirt randomly? Go back in time! Ha

And the animals. It's history ..and since we now say they r fables not real killing of dragons.. so. Believe what u want.. but science has proven creation and the flood . And much more .all history is in Bible and book of Enoch. Or. U can believe aliens started life here.but and when they appear and do wonders u can worship them .. future isn't too hard..neither is history.

Did I just hear the word estimate and when you sat at you kind of lower your voice tone because you were afraid to make emphasis that it's just an estimate all I know is that when Mount Helens exploded in the 80s did the carbon dating on the rocks that had just been erupted by the volcano in less than 30 years the carbon dating said it was 5 million years and then like 2 million years and like five different dates all in millions of years when the rocks have just been erupted for 30 years lol carbon dating is totally wrong
asrgaqgq sdfgsdgsdfgsdg (2 months ago)
"Did I just hear the word estimate" -Yes, estimate. There is a margin of error, just as there is with any other measurement technique. "when Mount Helens exploded in the 80s did the carbon dating on the rocks that had just been erupted by the volcano in less than 30 years the carbon dating said it was 5 million years and then like 2 million years and like five different dates all in millions of years when the rocks have just been erupted for 30 years lol carbon dating is totally wrong" -You are just spewing scientific ignorance. Carbon dating does not date inorganic compounds, and is not used to date things millions of years old. And even if they could, the lava wouldn't have been just created, it existed inside the Earth for a long time before that. Damn you are fucking dumb...

@DNews!!! I’ve been researching a lot on selective breeding and the silver fox farm of Siberia that created domestic foxes. Also read some articles talking about how cats are only semi-domesticated and that we didn’t necessarily start formally selectively breeding them-mostly for color-till the late 1800s; and they weren’t kept as companions till about 10,000 years ago. So why doesn’t someone finish the job and fully domesticate cats? Breed the biting, anti-social part out and select for more social, friendly housecats. On the silver fox farm in Siberia they were able to do this in about 6 generations. Secondly, interestingly enough, the domesticated foxes live 10+ years, longer than their wild counterparts. Why don’t we redo some dog evolution and start again with some wolves and see if we can get healthier breeds of dogs, compared to some of the modern day breeds some of which aren’t too healthy including the boxer and English bulldog. Just some thoughts for some sweet videos. If you guys don’t make one, I’ll probably make one. :)
Yelena Makoyed (3 months ago)
Carbon dating is a scam, it’s supposed to look like it works so the evolutionists have a “reasonable” defense in their claims. They know as well as Creationists that it doesn’t prove anything useful to their arguments. No word has authority over God’s word, and The Bible stated many things about the earth long before scientist found it. They should be looking to God and His Word for answers and not Radiometric dating.

Were we around 20-80 years ago to see loads of igneous rocks form. YEP, we were. So, can we date them? Has anyone tried? Do you think it's possible to date a rock of a known age (say 20 - 80yrs old) ? Surprisiingly, the answer is no. If you're not sure, look it up. There's many scientific papers published on comparing all the various dating methods used to day. Excluding carbon dating methods, the dates vary from 2 million years to nearly 100 million years old. These are the facts. Would you believe the rock millions of years old, if you know for a fact that it came from an eruption only decades ago? Have you seen the Nodosaur discovered recently? like many other fossils, it has soft carbon tissues, yet has been dated to 110 million years old,. this is impossible due to natural decay rate of carbon. i.e. even with immaculate preservation, the carbon should've decayed completely. Therefore, the date specified is wrong and the fossil cannot be older than several thousand years. At some point people have to acknowledge actual science flying in the face their world view and what they're told.

Just as Diamonds are a girl's best friend they're the best friend to creationist. Diamonds per science are millions to billions of years old. Carbon 14 half life less than 6000 years means zero carbon 14 will remain within 100,000 years. Yet... Million plus year old diamonds have carbon 14... Say what?/!

How is it possible to get a good moist tissue sample from some of these animals if they are that old. DNA degrades no matter what?
BezoomnyBratchny (8 months ago)
Sheila S If you're talking about dinosaurs, no moist tissue has ever been found. Tissue found in dinosaur bones has only ever become moist when being rehydrated in an effort to remove the surrounding mineral components of the bone. And no DNA has ever been found in any of this tissue either so I'm not sure of the relevance of stating that DNA degrades no matter what.

McScott76 (8 months ago)
So the only way to date a fossil "accurately" beyond 60,000 years is to compare it to other (non-carbon) isotypes in the layer in which the fossil is found. Ok. Got it. So what if there was a historical event that could have jumbled up these layers and redeposited the remains into different layers than where they originally would have been found? Let's say something like a catastrophic regional or global flood? And what if the atmospheric conditions that drive the half-life of carbon-14 and other isotopes were not constants but actually differed greatly as recently as a few thousand years ago? The half-life may have, in fact, been much much shorter or may have had much more variability in the past than it does at present. We can't know because we have no way of measuring those conditions that we are assuming were constants. What we do know, however, is that the Bible describes a much different planet at the time of Job, Noah and other early biblical figures. We know, for example, that rain was unknown to Noah's contemporaries. They thought Noah had lost his mind because they had never seen rain, and much less torrential rain or flooding. It's likely that the impetus for the great flood was God changing the atmospheric conditions of the earth to trigger the rain and up-welling of subterranean water. This could have been done supernaturally (similar to his act of creation) or through natural means -- such as a giant meteor impacting the earth. The point is that there are too many variables to know whether the modern day assumptions about cosmic radiation and the half-life of these isotopes were true even 10,000 years ago. So how could we possibly project back 10 million years or beyond with any certainty at all? Carbon dating only takes us back 60,000 years, and that's IF our modern constants have actually remained constant for that period -- which is a big "if" and is unprovable. The fact is that proponents of evolutionary theory needed the universe to be millions or billions of years old because the process of evolving from random gasses to single-cell organisms to eventually the highly ordered, interdependent universe full of complex organisms we see today can only have happened (theoretically) over a vast, almost immeasurable time period. So they drew this conclusion FIRST and then went looking for a way to justify their presupposition. That is NOT SCIENCE. That is religious dogma in search of a cover story.
Michael Deo (8 months ago)
No, it's based on the assumption that carbon 14 is a constant over vast amounts of time. All of these dating methods are based in part on assumptions, that are unprovable.

Corroboration and obsession with peer review are unhelpful when all have a common perception or current understanding. For instance, all medical 'peer reviewers' and 'corroborators' believed that the Black Death was spread by a 'miasma'. Anyone of a contrary view was considered to be in error.
KayJay Parko (10 months ago)
This presumes than the rate of cosmic ray exposure has always been the same as it is now. There is no method to determine whether this is so. Therefore carbon dating is based on a supposition - is this not true?

We can use the rocks in which the sample was found if the age exceeds 60,000 years? I've been researching this topic for years, and I can cite account after account where the rocks surrounding the sample were assigned dates wildly different from those of the sample. For example, a sample of fossilized wood in Banbury, England was dated to be between 20.7-28.8 thousand years old. The rock surrounding it was dated to be 183 MILLION years old. (Snelling, 2000).

Mutations can be beneficial, harmful, or just do nothing at all. So let's be honest, it's no reliable.
Elijah Rutan (1 year ago)
Another thing is that you can't know how one organism changed into another. it could have advanced then went back a step. Also it needs both a male and female to produce. Mutations aren't exactly reliable. You can have slight changes but they don't exactly happen as often as you think. Plus it needs to be consistent and it's not.

ladaylyn (1 year ago)
The problem with this is that after 50k to 60k years one has to relay on the geological dating. Which opens up for lots of questions. Who came up with the numbers and how accurate they are? Just because a hypothesis being established as a fact, cannot be used as a fact to back up another hypothesis! Maybe you should do a video about geological dating, how it came up to be? and what are the facts that back it up and its accuracy?

One simple comment. The moon moves farther away from the earth every year. It's been measured to an EXACT mathematical equation EXACTLY how far it moves every year. Now... having said that, if you reverse that equation it litigates the Bible. So in summary of my "small comment" every time you hear someone say millions of years or 10s of thousands of years, your about to be lied too! The earth is less than 10,000 years old period. Now... argue with that! God is real!

After about 1,000 years, carbon dating becomes extremely inaccurate. And the layer dating is too, plus, you can't date carbon 14 back to 60,000 years

Poor Science! . The myth of Evolution (Macro) fails when the Scientific Method of falsify-ability is applied, you can not repeat it, therefore it is not science, neither is Creation, but at least they know it, and are not so ignorant as to pretend otherwise.However Creation does not brake scientific laws like Causality, Thermodynamics and Boyles Gas Law which your fairy-tale brakes from the very beginning of your religion (The Big Bang).We do not need evolution to do real science, we can send people into space, invent computers, airplanes,cars, medical cures and lots more using the Scientific Method without any need for Evolution (Macro).You guys tell yourselves that the fairy-tale of evolution is true and leave the real Science to the grown ups.

Actually the bible and carbon dating are right. God's word in the bible proves the earth as being millions of years old. The dinosaurs bones are God's witnesses to that fact of the earth as being Million of years old. Alot of Christians are taught by man's teachings and doctrines that the earth is only 6 thousand years old. this is false. God teaches in His word that the earth as being Million of years old. But as it is people would rather go by what man's teachings and doctrines will tell them, Instead of listening to God's teachings.

thanks for the video. answered my questions XD but mm now i got a new one ... how do we know the age of the geologic column?

carbon dating is such complete bullcrap it never actually works they dated a seal to be 10000 years old LMAO idiots dont believe this bullcrap there is ZERO evidence of anything being more than 10000 years old this carbon dating bullcrap is just propaganda to push the evolutionist agenda

2:40 Libby measured even half life of C14 a bit wrong. How do you accurately measure a halflife like that of Uranium? Unlike C14, you cannot calibrate after historically dated objects. A piece of coin with the image of KAICAP TIBHPIOC or CAESAR TIBERIUS can have blood sweat or tears on it and be carbon datable - and we know (probably) how along ago Tiberius ruled. But you cannot calibrate any Uranium Lead half life in that precise way, because the halflife is too long. Unlike and like the problem with a rising C14-level - you have a problem with knowing if all the lead (even of a particular isotope) was originally Uranium. In Potassium Argon you have a problem with "excessive argon" - an explanation invoked by people yourself about lava from Mount St Helen's explosion 37 years (and not half a million or two million years) ago. We just take excessive argon a bit further than you do.

2:08 tree rings, ice cores, corals - subject to so much variation as to be unreliable. Tree rings are not always annual. Ice cores need not be annual at all.

1:36 "it's a constant" - only as constant as the carbon 14 levels in the atmosphere. Which is where Creationists at a somewhat finer level of argumentation than in oral debate with Bill Nye get our wedge from.
Hans-Georg Lundahl (1 year ago)
Btw, you said 5730 years, which means you disagree with Libby on the exact halflife. And the discoveries of the calibration which leads to this new one were obviously not made by JUST carbon dating things, but by taking into account things outside carbon dating. Major difference : we take the Bible into account too, as reliable history.

Let's say carbon-14 has a "reliable" half-life. How can you date a lump of carbon unless you know its *original* ratio of carbon-12 to carbon-14? All you can do is make a worst-case assumption that it started out 100% carbon-14, and calculate its oldest possible age. The video says carbon-14 is created by cosmic rays hitting the air. In that case, won't a penguin at the North Pole breath air that is less affected than the air breathed by a parrot on the equator? Might it be different at the bottom of the sea, or when earth had a different atmosphere? I am not a creationist and I don't appreciate the false dilemma: _"Creationist or agree with everything today's textbooks say."_

If carbon dating is organic matter. That means there was deteriorated. Which means anything that deteriorate has a creator, or a engineer. So the creationist is still right..
No one is buying it guys, Time to come up with a new pseudo science to prop up your astro religion.

@ 1:07 "with his new method, we can ESTIMATE the ages of any organic thing" When did estimate mean the same as exact?? Did they change the definition of estimate recently??

*WAIT FOR IT.....* 1:45 so basically due to th global water canopy that surrounded the Earth before the great flood causes all pre-flood creation to appear older. Hmm 😒
Dustin Sjaaheim (1 year ago)
I love his evidence is that "we can estimate the age." This explanation is wanting. Carbon 14 is accumulating faster than it is decaying. Therefore equilibrium hasn't occurred. They're using a rubber ruler. I don't believe that carbon dating is an accurate way to measure how old dead plants and animals were.
Bonnie Lee (1 year ago)
One set of footprints was in volcanic ash that turned hard with sediment that buried it and then I guess erosion uncovered it.
how do you know it decays every 500 years? Have you tested it over 5000 years? Did they have carbon dating back then? Did you conduct your tests from two RELATIVE points in TIME? No. Do you know when the first use of carbon dating was? 1960. Wow. 70 yeas of testing? Thats it? ---- "t was also Mr. Libby who first measured radiocarbon's rate of decay and established 5568 years ± 30 years as the half-life. In 1960, Mr. Libby was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in recognition of his efforts to develop radiocarbon dating." He invented this and forced the belief upon people Its the same as religion. Sure lets just believe him and say its true. Into Darkness. We should let people start with a blank slate and decide for themselves.
here's a little lesson on radiometric dating for you, it has flaws that evolutionist do not tell you

This is so biased! There are a myriad of assumptions involved in carbon dating and hardly any of the information provided can be verified. Stop taking agnostic bribes and find the truth dude!
Joshua Chad_Travis (1 year ago)
the life of carbon 14 is only a million years. You would need something to live at least 51 times longer to be able to estimate that correctly. when they checked the fossils the uranium 238 wasn't as far along as they say it was. also how do you know when it was formed in the first place to gage it's life span? the other thing is diamonds that are supposed to be 3billion years old still have carbon 14 in them. Wow that makes so much sense! also I thought you said 51 million year old door prints" then "800,000 thousand years old" and then you said "they found even older ones that where 1.5 million years old" I'm confused, how old are they now? the eat they date fossils is just a joke.

How do you know how much Uranium there was to start with?
