Carbon dating method reliable
This tendency to decay, called radioactivity, is what gives radiocarbon the name radiocarbon.
Radiocarbon is not stable; over time radiocarbon atoms decay into nitrogen atoms.
It is naturally unstable and so it will spontaneously decay back into N-14 after a period of time.
It takes about 5,730 years for half of a sample of radiocarbon to decay back into nitrogen.
Many Christians have been led to distrust radiometric dating and are completely unaware of the great number of laboratory measurements that have shown these methods to be consistent.
Many are also unaware that Bible-believing Christians are among those actively involved in radiometric dating.
