So if scientists believe that a creature lived millions of years ago, then they would need to date it another way. They assume dinosaurs lived millions of years ago (instead of thousands of years ago like the bible says).
Unbiased science changes the theory to support the facts.
They should not change the facts to fit the theory.
Let's say initially every radioactive element was "exploded" into existence from pre-existent elements.
None of these early faster half-lives would be the same as they are today.
As time progressed each would begin to acquire its slower modern-day stable half-life, but would they all acquire these stable rates in a uniformity which would keep them all in synchrony? If they did, all would give the same ages, you are right.
Each would probably arrive at equilibrium at different times.Consequently organisms living there dated by C14 give ages much older than their true age.A lake Bonney seal known to have died only a few weeks before was carbon dated.16.000 years by the way is still 10,000 years before your God supposedly created the Earth." Amy M 12/11/01 My response: I explain the limits of Carbon dating below.One thing you might want to ask yourself though, is how do you know it is millions of years old, giving an "incorrect" date (one that you think is too young) or if it actually is only a few thousand years old.However each time they test it, they find more c14 in the atmosphere, and have realized that we are only 1/3 the way to equilibrium.
