Creation and carbon dating
Examples: For all of these, and more, reasons, calibration is needed in C-14 dating.
Thus, reports generally specify the ‘raw’ numbers and the ‘fudged’ numbers.
I understand calibration might have something to do with this, but then in the article it says in italicized words that the uncalibrated date “Must Always Be Mentioned”. CMI’s Dr Rob Carter responds: Anthony, As a fan of biblical archaeology, I was asked to address your question.
But when I read articles about the results, they never mention the uncalibrated data, which could actually be correct. I am not an expert in every subject that impinges on the discussion, but I will do my best.
Many people believe that carbon dating has proven the Biblical timeline is not scientifically valid.
When Kathleen Kenyon came away from her study in the 1950s and essentially announced ‘I see no evidence for the destruction of Joshua here,’ she was basing her opinions, in part, on the new field of radiocarbon dating.Note that, contrary to a popular misconception, carbon dating is not used to date rocks at millions of years old.
