Who invented radioactive carbon dating

Among the artifacts from the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute that Prof.Willard Libby tested during the radiocarbon dating development process was this wood from an ancient Egyptian coffin.

The period of time that it takes for half of a sample to decay is called a "half-life." Radiocarbon oxidizes (that is, it combines with oxygen) and enters the biosphere through natural processes like breathing and eating.

The amount of cosmic rays penetrating the earth's atmosphere is itself affected by things like the earth's magnetic field which deflects cosmic rays.

Precise measurements taken over the last 140 years have shown a steady decay in the strength of the earth's magnetic field.

So, if we find the remains of a dead creature whose C-12 to C-14 ratio is half of what it's supposed to be (that is, one C-14 atom for every two trillion C-12 atoms instead of one in every trillion) we can assume the creature has been dead for about 5,730 years (since half of the radiocarbon is missing, it takes about 5,730 years for half of it to decay back into nitrogen).

If the ratio is a quarter of what it should be (one in every four trillion) we can assume the creature has been dead for 11,460 year (two half-lives).

This means there's been a steady increase in radiocarbon production (which would increase the ratio). God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.

  1. These people almost all have fake Syrian passports, and yet all seemed to come from different Islamic countries from all over the world..... They must have got funding fom somewhere, how can so many from poverty stricken backgrounds all seem to come together all at once and all seem to have the thousands of dollars to pay for their journey.
