Excessive carbon 14 in deep geologic strata , which contradicts the evolutionary interpretation of the geology of our planet .
Carbon 14 (1) has a short half life (2) of 5700 years , with this in mind there should be no Carbon 14 atoms left within any Carbon that extends beyond the age of 250,000 years . BUT it is impossible to find any natural source of carbon below Pleistocene (3) (Ice Age) strata that does not contain within it demonstratable significant amounts of carbon 14, considering that such strata are supposed to be millions or billions of years (evolutionary timelines) old and the carbon 14 should have completely decayed and gone when applying the evolutionary timelines . But clearly it has not .
Modern day Carbon 14 laboratories are aware of this problem and anomaly and have been since the early 1980s, with this in mind they have striven to eliminate it , but are unable to account for it. Recently the world's best such laboratory which has learned over the past two decades of low-C14 measurements how not to contaminate specimens from external sources , contracted to creationists, confirmed observation results for coal samples and even for a dozen diamonds, which cannot be contaminated in situ with recent carbon.(4) These demonstrate and constitute extremely strong evidence that the earth is only thousands, not billions, of years old.
(1) Carbon 14 = Carbon-14 is a naturally occurring radioactive isotope of
carbon. = Radioactively decays from Carbon .= C14/C12 ratio gets smaller .
(2) Half life = Period of time it takes for the amount of a substance undergoing decay to decrease by half.
(3) Pleistocene age = Approximately ranging between 2.6 million to 11,000 years ago ( evolutationary timelines )
