Furthermore, from the detailed chronologies given, we know that creation happened about 4,000 years before Christ.
That was the orthodox view of the Christian church for 1,800 years.
For example: Scientists have dated a female figurine commonly called the Venus of Willendorf or the Woman of Willendorf to 24,000 to 22,000 BCE.
They were unable to date the object directly since it is made from oolitic limestone.
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.
The older a sample is, the less (the period of time after which half of a given sample will have decayed) is about 5,730 years, the oldest dates that can be reliably measured by this process date to around 50,000 years ago, although special preparation methods occasionally permit accurate analysis of older samples.
The resulting radiocarbon combines with atmospheric oxygen to form radioactive carbon dioxide, which is incorporated into plants by photosynthesis; animals then acquire in a sample from a dead plant or animal such as a piece of wood or a fragment of bone provides information that can be used to calculate when the animal or plant died.For more than ten years now a paper by Roger Wiens entitled ‘Radiometric Dating: A Christian Perspective’ has been saying that radio-isotopic dating is absolutely reliable and the earth is definitely millions of years old.Wiens, a physicist employed by the Space & Atmospheric Sciences Group at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, presents his paper as a long and detailed tutorial on the theory behind radioactive dating.It’s available on the web via the American Scientific Affiliation, a fellowship of Christians in science.To those who have not encountered the topic before the paper can seem very convincing. The method was developed by Willard Libby in the late 1940s and soon became a standard tool for archaeologists.Libby received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in 1960.Example: wood found in a grave of known age by historically reliable documents is the standard for that time for the C14 content.This standard content of C14 can then be used for wood not associated with a historically documented date.The problem is that the Bible plainly says that the world was created by God in six days.That is clear to anyone who reads it for the first time.
