Corbon dating

It is naturally unstable and so it will spontaneously decay back into N-14 after a period of time.

(They conveniently forget to mention that the tree ring chronology was arranged by C14 dating.

The methodology is quite accurate, but dendrochronology supposedly shows that the C14 dates go off because of changes in the equilibrium over time, and that the older the dates the larger the error.

Despite this she continually uses the c14 dates to create 'absolute' chronologies.

(4.) Traditional 14C testing assumes equilibrium in the rate of formation and the rate of decay.

In fact, 14C is forming FASTER than the observed decay rate.

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.

Libby, the discoverer of the C14 dating method, was very disappointed with this problem.

This is how carbon dating works: Carbon is a naturally abundant element found in the atmosphere, in the earth, in the oceans, and in every living creature.
