Radiocarbon dating and religion
Radiocarbon dating and religion - validating the pepsi challenge
This tendency to decay, called radioactivity, is what gives radiocarbon the name radiocarbon.
Carbon-14 is not stable; it has a ½ life of about 5700 years, meaning ½ will be converted to stable Carbon-12 in 5700 years." I am trying to decide whether to vote Sklivvz up, or ping him for not answering the question :-)@Oddthinking, since my question has a simple present tense, I mean the general methodology, not particular to this Tomb.Go for it, downvote him :)) I also wondered the possible outcomes of such testings but that part is deleted by Sklivvz???Ah, looking at the edit history I see you asked a hypothetical question about how people's beliefs might change. The tomb of Philip was not opened, it's therefore impossible that any carbon dating has been performed on the remains.(1) That's a completely separate question, (2) it isn't about a claim anyone has made, (3) it doesn't seem to be one that could be answered with science. However, apparently the inscriptions on the tomb confirm the authenticity of the site.Uneven heating of the Earth’s surface causes “Weather”; this system distributes it equally over the earth.
Plants interact with the atmosphere through photosynthesis. The equation simply says Carbon di-oxide, whether radioactive or not, in the presence of Water and Sunlight causes “Plant Growth” which gives off Oxygen, the required element for Man (Woman as well) and Animal respiration and growth.
The following article is primarily based on a discussion of radiocarbon dating found in The Biblical Chronologist Volume 5, Number 1. Radiocarbon dating is based on a few relatively simple principles. The vast majority of these are C (pronounced "c twelve"), the stable isotope of carbon.
However, cosmic radiation constantly collides with atoms in the upper atmosphere.
Part of the result of these collisions is the production of radiocarbon (C, pronounced "c fourteen"), carbon atoms which are chemically the same as stable carbon, but have two extra neutrons.
Radiocarbon is not stable; over time radiocarbon atoms decay into nitrogen atoms.
God created the Sun, Moon and Stars on Day 4, to tell time, seasons and for signs.
