Does carbon dating support theory evolution
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.Trilobites, dinosaurs, giant sloths, baculites, etc., they all suggest that life on Earth has changed quite a bit.
And the theory has only been strengthened as more evidence has been accrued.Example fossils: Fossils aren’t the only way that we can see species changing.We can see it in a laboratory, across geographic distribution as a species spreads, or through artificial selection performed by humans.by Helen Fryman Question: What about radiocarbon dating? Response: I asked several people who know about this field. (1.) C14 dating is very accurate for wood used up to about 4,000 years ago.This is only because it is well calibrated with objects of known age.
