Carbon dating diamonds trasparadicedating
C at all if they really were over a billion years old, yet the radiocarbon lab reported that there was over 10 times the detection limit.
Thus they had a radiocarbon ‘age’ far less than a million years!
Some are found in these pipes, such as kimberlites, while other diamonds were liberated by water erosion and deposited elsewhere (called alluvial diamonds).
According to evolutionists, the diamonds formed about 1–3 billion years ago.
The small apparent non-zero values are less than measurement error.
In other words, the readings are consistent with zero C14 content.
I've had a couple long-running debates with my father, one major topic being creationism.
While he is absolutely entitled to his beliefs as a young-earth creationist, he continually tries to use "scientific facts" to prove his beliefs to me.
The Ai G article says they dated diamonds to around 55,000 years, which just happens to be about 5000 years short of the oldest date for which C14 dating can be used for living things.
According to the evolutionary worldview, diamonds formed billions of years ago.
However, the Bible tells us that the earth is only 6,000 years old.
This is because after that many generations of decay, there's so little left it's indistinguishable from background C14 or contamination.
So if people are just the slightest bit sloppy in their technique, they won't be able to accurately date anything older than 55,000 years anyway.1.
The problem: If the material is too old, the small amount of C14 present may not decay in the measurement interval.
