Is carbon 14 dating correct

This turns out not to be exactly true, and so there is an inherent error between a raw "radiocarbon date" and the true calendar date.To correct for this, scientists have compared radiocarbon dates from objects who's age is known by other means, such as artifacts from Egyptian tombs, and growth rings from ancient trees.In this way, calibration tables have been developed that eliminate the discrepancy.Despite its usefulness, radiocarbon dating has a number of limitations.We believe all the dates over 5,000 years are really compressible into the next 2,000 years back to creation.So when you hear of a date of 30,000 years for a carbon date we believe it to be early after creation and only about 7,000 years old.

It can theoretically be used to date anything that was alive any time during the last 60,000 years or so, including charcoal from ancient fires, wood used in construction or tools, cloth, bones, seeds, and leather.Libby, the discoverer of the C14 dating method, was very disappointed with this problem.He understood that archaeological artifacts were readily available.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.
