Most scientists today believe that life has existed on the earth for billions of years.This belief in long ages for the earth and the evolution of all life is based entirely on the hypothetical and non-empirical Theory of Evolution.
This restriction extends to animals that consume seafood in their diet.
As stated previously, carbon dating cannot be used on artifacts over about 50,000 years old.
The calibrated radiocarbon ages agree well, except in one case, with the paleographic estimates or the specific dates noted on the scrolls.
Carbon dating is used to determine the age of biological artifacts up to 50,000 years old.
The manuscripts also include uncanonized sectarian books, letters and commercial documents, written on papyrus and parchment.
In only a few cases, direct information on the date of writing was found in the scrolls.In all other cases, the dating is based on indirect archaeological and paleographical evidence.To check this evidence, radiocarbon ages of 14 selected scrolls were determined using accelerator mass spectrometry.These artifacts have gone through many carbon-14 half-lives, and the amount of carbon-14 remaining in them is miniscule and very difficult to detect.Carbon dating cannot be used on most fossils, not only because they are almost always allegedly too old, but also because they rarely contain the original carbon of the organism that has been fossilized.Scientists now realize that production of carbon-14 has not been constant over the years, but has changed as the radiation from the sun has fluctuated.
