Figure 1 below shows in histogram form the results of these analyses.These values fall squarely within the range already established in the peer-reviewed radiocarbon literature.
A conservative estimate for the pre-Flood biomass is 100 times that of today.
If one takes as a rough estimate for the total Some readers at this point may be asking, how does one then account for the tens of millions and hundreds of millions of years that other radioisotope methods yield for the fossil record?
C in a wide variety of fossil sources from throughout the geological record has thus been established in the secular scientific literature by scientists who assume the standard geological time scale is valid and have no special desire for this result!
In view of the profound significance of these AMS The first set of samples consisted of ten coals obtained from the U. Department of Energy Coal Sample Bank maintained at the Pennsylvania State University.
The only consistent way to interpret the geological record in light of this event is to understand that fossil-bearing rocks are the result of a massive global Flood that occurred only a few thousand years ago and lasted but a year.
This Biblical interpretation of the rock record implies that the animals and plants preserved as fossils were all contemporaries.There are several ways to figure out relative ages, that is, if one thing is older than another.For example, looking at a series of layers in the side of a cliff, the younger layers will be on top of the older layers.A key technical advance, which occurred about 25 years ago, involved the ability to measure the ratio of C ratio from approximately 1% of the modern value to about 0.001%, extending the theoretical range of sensitivity from about 40,000 years to about 90,000 years.The expectation was that this improvement in precision would make it possible to use this technique to date dramatically older fossil material.With the discovery of radioactivity about a hundred years ago, evolutionists deeply committed to the uniformitarian outlook believed they finally had proof of the immense antiquity of the earth.
