History of Carbon Dating
Carbon dating was not invented until 1949, so when they started telling the kids that the earth was billions of year’s old, back in 1830, they didn’t tell them because of carbon dating. Carbon dating hadn’t even been thought of yet. So why did they teach people the earth was billions of years old one hundred and sixty years ago? Well they needed billions of years to fit the evolution theory, so they could make it look good.
*See if I told you, you could turn a frog into a prince if you kissed it, you would all say it’s a fairy tale. However, if I told you the frog could turn into a prince if you waited billions of years, now it becomes believable, no it’s still a fairy tale.
The geologic column is where it all started. The earth was divided up into layers: Cambrian, Paleozoic, Mesozoic, Cenozoic, etc… Each layer was assigned a name and an index fossil. Then scientists said, “Now we have to prove these layers are old.” So they picked the numbers from the clear blue sky, and any dating technique that comes along, like carbon dating or any other method, must match the geologic column or else it is rejected. Only because the geologic column has been taught for one hundred and eighty years now, so surely it’s true.
Just because it has been taught for one hundred and eighty years does not mean it’s true. But that is the logic those scientist will have: “We know the geologic column has been established therefore any dates we get should match that otherwise we’ll just throw it out and we’ll keep testing until we do.” They may test a sample five or six times until they get the number they want. Well how do you know any of them are right then? If you’re getting a different number every time, how do you know any of them are right?
