The following material has been taken from a sheet entitled Several Faulty Assumptions Are Used in all Radiometric Dating Methods.
Carbon 14 is used for this example:, which was put out by Dr. is presently only 1/3 of the way to an equilibrium value which will be reached in 30,000 years. Knowing how faulty creationist "facts" can be, let's do a little research of our own.
We say that the input and output of water is in equilibrium.
Families that were happily married for years can suddenly realize that they cannot wind up looking at their lawful partner.
If you notice the same thing, switch to something really hot!
A 403 Forbidden error means that you do not have permission to view the requested file or resource.

When the dipole moment is strong, carbon-14 production is suppressed below normal; when it is weak, carbon-14 production is boosted above normal.
What the magnetic field does is to partially shield the earth from cosmic rays which produce carbon-14 high in the atmosphere.
This nullifies the carbon-14 method as well as demonstrating that the earth is less than 10,000 years old. One suspects that the scientific world would not be using the carbon-14 method if it were so obviously flawed.
Could it be that the whole scientific community has missed this point, or is it another case of creationist daydreaming?
Creationists don't want their readers to be distracted with problems like that -- unless the cat is already out of the bag and something has to be said.
Tree-ring dating (see Topic 27) gives us a wonderful check on the radiocarbon dating method for the last 8000 years.
(The barrel is made deep enough so that we don't have to worry about water overflowing the rim.) Henry Morris argued that if we started filling up our empty barrel it would take 30,000 years to reach the equilibrium point.
