The process would continue, halving the amount left every 5,730 years until, theoretically, nothing remained of the original pound.
Carbon-14 decays to a zero amount in 250,000 supposed years after its production.
It is incapable of yielding dates in the millions of years.
For some reason, which I have not yet figured out, at least one person per week has been asking me about the Carbon-14 Radiometric Dating Technique.
They want to know if it is accurate or if it works at all.
The theoretical limit of the usefulness of Carbon-14 dating would only be 50,000 years.
This would be the amount of time it would take for nine half-lives, and after that there would not be enough left to measure accurately.There is then a ratio of Carbon-14 to Carbon-12 in the bodies of plants, animals and humans which could be considered as fixed at the time of death.After death, the Carbon-14 would decay and the ratio of the two isotopes would change.Evolutionists then claim to determine the amount of time since the death of the organism by measuring the current ratio.The lower the amount of Carbon-14, the longer it has been since death occurred.In high school biology courses they often teach about the inevitable failures of closed systems by taking an aquarium and placing snails, plants and a bowl of water inside; then sealing the aquarium so that no air may get in or out.
