Radiocarbon dating the earth
The RATE team has applied an inverse system of logic to the standard.
They begin with the same assumption that they are trying to prove.
3) Because all life existed at the same time, more organic carbon was present before the flood than after.
However, RATE is attempting to fit all radiometric dating into a young earth model.
RATE researcher John Baumgardner has dealt specifically with radiocarbon dating.
The RATE research in the area of radiocarbon has focused on the "blank" sample date.
This means that we regard the bible as a uniquely inspired book given to mankind from the Creator" De Young 2005: 158).
In creating their C model, that premise is used as the foundation.
