Carbon dating is not flawed

Radiocarbon dating also referred to as carbon dating or carbon dating is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon , a radioactive isotope of carbon. The method was developed in the late s at the University of Chicago by Willard Libby , who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in It is based on the fact that radiocarbon 14 C is constantly being created in the atmosphere by the interaction of cosmic rays with atmospheric nitrogen. The resulting 14 C combines with atmospheric oxygen to form radioactive carbon dioxide , which is incorporated into plants by photosynthesis ; animals then acquire 14 C by eating the plants. When the animal or plant dies, it stops exchanging carbon with its environment, and thereafter the amount of 14 C it contains begins to decrease as the 14 C undergoes radioactive decay. Measuring the amount of 14 C in a sample from a dead plant or animal, such as a piece of wood or a fragment of bone, provides information that can be used to calculate when the animal or plant died.

Response: I asked several people who know about this field. Their responses are numbered below. C14 dating is very accurate for wood used up to about 4, years ago. This is only because it is well calibrated with objects of known age.
Is Carbon Dating Accurate?
Having just read that carbon dating is flawed, I just want those opposed to it to explain how and where they learned that. Shawn: Given that I have yet to give where I'm standing, I find it downright laughable that you accuse me of either, but to clear the air: I HAVE read about it in a book, and so does your professor. The difference is that I want both or more sides before saying something final. Frizby: We have both read our respective books. I wanna know where and why, not insult people randomly without giving any sort of argument.
