Radiocarbon dating error
In fact, 14C is forming FASTER than the observed decay rate.
This skews the 'real' answer to a much younger age.
(2.) I just listened to a series of lectures on archaeology put out by John Hopkins Univ.We believe all the dates over 5,000 years are really compressible into the next 2,000 years back to creation.So when you hear of a date of 30,000 years for a carbon date we believe it to be early after creation and only about 7,000 years old.One of the impressive points Whitewall makes is the conspicuous absence of dates between 4,500 and 5,000 years ago illustrating a great catastrophe killing off plant and animal life world wide (the flood of Noah)!I hope this helps your understanding of carbon dating.
