He shows that the few “good” dates left after the “bad” dates are filtered out could easily be explained as fortunate coincidences.
Unless this effect (which is additional to the magnetic field issue just discussed) were corrected for, carbon dating of fossils formed in the flood would give ages much older than the true ages.
One standard deviation has a 68% probability and two standard deviations have a 95% probability.
C) dating is an isotopic or nuclear decay method of inferring age for organic materials.
The technique provides a common chronometric time scale of worldwide applicability on a routine basis in the age range from about 300 calender years to between 40,000 and 50,000 years.
