Dating of non carbonaceous materials

He makes additional claims that even non-biological carbonaceous material contains intrinsic radiocarbon.He suggests that this radiocarbon is residual from the material’s creation.Meteorites have been used to date the earth with a 4.55 ± 0.07 Ga Pb-Pb isochron called the geochron.

— The precise dating of ancient charcoal found near a skull is helping reveal a unique period in prehistory.

The RATE team claims the results have yielded convincing and irrefutable scientific evidence of a young earth.

John Baumgardner, a geophysicist with expertise in tectonic modeling, presents experimental data claiming to show that all biological material contains intrinsic radiocarbon, no matter how old that material may be thought to be [1, 2].

The dating process is always designed to try to extract the carbon from a sample which is most representative of the original organism.

In general it is always better to date a properly identified single entity (such as a cereal grain or an identified bone) rather than a mixture of unidentified organic remains.

The method could help shed new light on the history of ...
