However, before accepting any radiocarbon date, one should know how the technique works, its limitations, and its assumptions.One limitation is that the radiocarbon technique dates only material that was once part of an animal or plant, such as bones, flesh, or wood. To understand the other capabilities and limitations of radiocarbon dating, we must understand how it works and consider the flood. However, roughly one in a trillion carbon atoms weighs 14 atomic units. It is also called radio carbon because it is radio active (but not dangerous).Half of it will decay in about 5,730 years to form nitrogen.Half of the remainder will decay in another 5,730 years, and so on.The samples were from a mile below the earth, which, according to inflated evolutionary years, were 1.5 billion years old.The helium still locked in the samples was studied as well as the rate at which the helium diffused from the rock.If the atmosphere's ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 has doubled since the flood and we did not know it, radiocarbon ages of things living soon after the flood would appear to be one half-life (or 5,730 years) older than their true ages.If that ratio quadrupled, organic remains would appear 11,460 (2 x 5,730) years older, etc.

If we knew the amount of carbon-14 in an organism when it died, we could attempt to date the time of death.

However, for the last 3,500 years, the increase in the ratio has been extremely slight.

Radiocarbon dating of vertical sequences of organic-rich layers at 714 locations worldwide has consistently shown a surprising result.

Outside the range of recorded history, calibration of the 14 clock is not possible.

This means the above calculations are only evolution speculation and NOT backed up by real science.
