Error in carbon dating
In this page, we consider natural reservoir variations and variations brought about by human interaction].Radiocarbon samples which obtain their carbon from a different source (or reservoir) than atmospheric carbon may yield what is termed apparent ages.In a related article on geologic ages (Ages), we presented a chart with the various geologic eras and their ages.In a separate article (Radiometric dating), we sketched in some technical detail how these dates are calculated using radiometric dating techniques.(For brevity's sake, hereafter I will refer to the parent isotope as ).In addition, it requires that these measurements be taken from several different objects which all formed at the same time from a common pool of materials.[A Conventional Radiocarbon Age or CRA, does not take into account specific differences between the activity of different carbon reservoirs.
For example, creationist writer Henry Morris [Morris2000, pg.He was considered to be the brutish ancestor link to man in the evolution chain, the intermediate stage between man and ape.
