Carbon dating bible bug hall dating

This is the crucial point: it is claimed by some that an old earth supports evolutionary theory and by implication removes the need for biblical creation.Some claim Genesis in particular, and the Bible in general looks mythical from this standpoint.The Bible is both a religious and historical work, but how much is myth and how much is history? Where do the people of Israel originally come from?When and why was the Old Testament written, and by whom? Why were the historical accounts of the Bible written down?Modern accelerator mass spectrometry (used for radiocarbon dating purposes to separate radiocarbon atoms from stable carbon atoms and count them) is quite precise.

It only sequences the age of things or determines if something is older or younger than other things.This age is obtained from radiometric dating and is assumed by evolutionists to provide a sufficiently long time-frame for Darwinian evolution.And OE Christians (theistic evolutionists) see no problem with this dating whilst still accepting biblical creation, see Radiometric Dating - A Christian Perspective.One known example where this assumption was used is very misleading.Ice cores showed the age of a military plane buried in the artic as thousands of years old.
