Scientific arguments against carbon dating
Because the evidence for common ancestry is massive, creationism is a pseudoscience akin to anti-vaccine activism, astrology, climate denial and HIV/AIDS denialism.In fact, creationism uses the same kinds of rhetorical techniques, including quoting scientists out of context, false balance, butchering simple scientific facts, conspiracy theories, logical fallacies and so on.Radiometric dating is the method for establishing the age of objects by measuring the levels of radioisotopes in the sample. It decays to nitrogen 14 with a half life of 5730 years. Carbon 14 is created by cosmic rays in the upper atmosphere.Unfortunately, it is an article that mostly contain poorly constructed variants of creationist claims that have already been refuted thousands of times and a strong dose of logical fallacies (such as appeal to consequences).[…] I believe the theory of evolution takes away the humanity of humans.
How long has the competitor taken to swim the 1,500 metre race?A swimming race illustrates the simple principles involved in measuring time.This swimmer is competing in a 1,500 metre race and we have an accurate, calibrated wristwatch.Anyone who says otherwise—that is, anyone who accepts basic science—is just spreading the devil’s lies.(That includes me.) Bill Nye’s decision to debate Ham at the Creation Museum Tuesday night, then, was a puzzling one.
