Libby, the discoverer of the C14 dating method, was very disappointed with this problem.He understood that archaeological artifacts were readily available.God confounded the speech of the people in that city so that they could not understand each other's language.They then left Babel and radiated in all directions, forming new civilizations around the world.Example: wood found in a grave of known age by historically reliable documents is the standard for that time for the C14 content.
The operations of carbon-14 dating rest on the same basic assumptions about the natural world as the scientific method; namely, that reality is objective and consistent, that humans have the ability to perceive reality correctly, and that information about the world can be studied and known.by Helen Fryman Question: What about radiocarbon dating? Response: I asked several people who know about this field. (1.) C14 dating is very accurate for wood used up to about 4,000 years ago.This is only because it is well calibrated with objects of known age.Dates up to this point in history are well documented for C14 calibration.For object over 4,000 years old the method becomes very unreliable for the following reason: Objects older then 4,000 years run into a problem in that there are few if any known artifacts to be used as the standard.
