Questions to answer.  Questions must be answered in complete sentences.

1.  At what time frame does Carbon-14 completely become eliminated from an organism? (How old will an organism be when the C-14 is all gone?)

2.  What is the measured half life of C-14?  What does C-14 degrade to?

3.  Under "Dating Methods Conflict" what material do scientist believe is millions of years old that still has C-14 present?

4.  In the statment "If the scientist did not realize that the pre-Flood 14C/C ratio was hundreds of times smaller than today’s value, he would calculate the animal’s age to be approximately..." how old would carbon dating age the animal and when could the animal have died?

5.  Tell me how this article has affected your thinking on evolution and the old earth theory?

1. You should no longer be able to detect any C-14 in an organism at least 103,140 years old.

2. The measured half life of C-14 is 5,730 years. C-14 degrades back into nitrogen over a period of time.

3. Scientists believe that diamonds are millions of years old, but they still have traces of C-14 in them.

4. The scientist would date the animal's age to be 51,570 years.

5. This article further disproves the evolutionist and old earth theory for me. The evidence is clearly there, so I don't understand why scientists with degree's and a college education can't see what's right in front of them.

Carbon14 is supposed to decay after 103,140 years, which I think personally does not make sense because how can you give a gas a lifespan. The half life of a Carbon14 is 5,730 years and then it decays into nitrogen. Scientist believe that diamonds are billions of years old and contain 14C. According to the article scientist believe that 14C can age an animal up to 51,570 years old. However if this had happened during the time of the flood (in the article) then the animal would have just died. After reading this article I believe that since evolutionists KNOW they can not prove their theory, they decide to mess with the bible to make themselves sound more correct. According to the "old earth theory" (which I call the bible) is still valid in my heart because God has proven throughout history and even now.

1. You should not be able to detect any C14 after 103,140 years.
2. 5,730 years is the half life of C14. It degrades to particles of Nitrogen.
3. Scientists believe that diamonds happen to be millions of years old, with some C14 still inside.
4. Scientists believe that C14 can age an animal 51,570 years.....if this was true the animals that were alive during the flood would've died after.
5. I still don't believe in Evolution after reading this article. It seems as though the Evolutionists are trying to put some facts together to disprove Gods Word with little to no proof. Gods Word has been proven on numerous occasions, whereas the Evolution theories haven't proven yet.

1. You will not be able to detect any Carbon-14 after 103,140 years later.
2. The measured half life of C14 is 5,730 years and it begins to degrade into particles of nitrogen over time.
3. Scientists believe that diamonds, which happen to be millions of years old, still have some form of C14 inside of them.
4. Scientists believe that C14 can age the animals that are as old as 51,570. I don't agree with this statement because even animals that lived in the Biblical times would still be alive today which we already know is false. Animals only live for a certain amount of years.
5. I still do not believe in Evolution after reading this article because it seems as though scientists are attempting to lull people in the theories of evolution even after millions of years the Bible and what has been written in it has been proven to be true in more ways than one. Evolution is just a thought of how we came about, but our God's Word is the actual proof of the truth.

1) You should not be able to sense a C-14 after 103,140 years.
2)The measured half life of C-14 IS 5,730 years. C-14 over time degrades into Nitrogen.
3)Scientists believe that diamonds are a million years old with little remains of C-14 left in them.
4)The article states that C-14 can age an animal up to 51,570 years. However, if that was the case, the animals alive during the Flood would have died soon after.
5)After reading and truly evaluating this article I still am not convinced that evolution is true. Many evolutionists like to twist the Word of God with their own opinions when in reality the Bible is unchangeable. Evolutionists have been proven wrong over and over again so I do not understand why they continue to want their opinions to be credited. I agree with the old earth theory because the creation of the world is proof that God and His Word exist and has existed since the beginning of time.

1. Carbon-14 will not be able to be detected in an organism after 103,140 years.
2. The measured half-life of Carbon-14 5,730 years. C-14 degrades to back to nitrogen.
3.C-14 has been detected in diamond which scientists believe to be billions of years old.
4.The scientist would calculate the animal to be about 51,570 years old even though it would have just died.
5. This article did not lead me to believe in evolution any more than I already did. This article just proves even more that scientist are becoming more desperate to prove their theory. They are now trying to discredit the bible and how the Earth really came to be. I personally still believe in "the old earth theory" because it has been proven to be true many times in history.

1. You would not be able to find any C-14 in the organism after 103,140 years later.
2. Today's measure for a half of life for C-14 is 5,730 years. C-14 eventually degrades into Nitrogen.
3. Under the "Dating Methods Conflict" scientist believe that C-14 is still present in diamonds.
4. The animals age would be calculated to be about 51,570 years old. However, if this were true they would have already died.
5. After reading this article, it did not make me believe in evolution any more than I did before. Evolutionist are still trying to prove things that are not even logic to most, but logic to them. I still believe in what the Bible says and only that. The Bible has been proven multiple times to be right, whereas evolution has yet to be backed up by any proof.

1. After 103,140 years, Carbon- 14 will be unable to unidentifiable in an organism.

2. The measured half-life of C-14 is 5,730 years and it degrades to Nitrogen.

3. Scientists believe that diamonds, although a million years old still have C-14 present.

4. If the scientist did not realize that the pre-Flood 14C/C ratio was hundreds of times smaller than today’s value, he would calculate the animal’s age to be about 51,570 years old, even though it had just died.

5. After reading this article, I still do not believe and will ever believe in Evolution, these scientists do not have any substantial proof of what they researched. They will not accept the fact that they are wrong and that the Bible is correct. I agree with the “Old World Theory” because unlike Evolution, it has considerable amount of proof by examples throughout history.

1. Carbon-14 should not be detected until after 103,140 years.
2. The measured half-life of Carbon is 145,730 years. C-14 degrades back to nitrogen
3. C-14 has been previously detected in diamonds; which scientist believe to be billions of years old with small remaining traces of C-14.
4. According to the article scientist dated animal age to being 51,570 years. If this were true the animals that lived during biblical times would have just perished.
5. After reading and analyzing this article I don't beleive in evoloution anymore than it is proved. It only proves how scientist will go to any lengths to commercialize a theory they claim to fully understand. Evoulutionist are merely trying to disregard the Bible and how the earth came to be. I still strongly believe in "the old theory", because it has been proven many times throught history and it is apart of my personal beliefs.

1. You will not be able to detect Carbon-14 after 103,140 years.

2. The measured half life of Carbon-14 is 5,730 years. Carbon-14 will eventually degrade back to nitrogen.

3. Within "Dating Methods Conflict", the material that scientists believe still have traces of C-14 even if its millions of years old are diamonds.

4. The scientists have calculated the ages of the animals to be 51,570 years. If this was true, the animals that were around during Biblical times would have died shortly after the flood.

5. After reading this article, I still do not believe in the concepts of evolution. The reason why is because there is a lot of missing elements within this belief that evolutionist can't answer. However, the only thing that has shown proof of "the old earth theory" is the Bible. I also believe in "the old earth theory" is because we also see this to be proven throughout history. It also seems like evolution is trying to put down the Bible and the truth about God creating the world.

1. Carbon-14 will not be be detected in any organism after 103,140 long years.

2. The measured half-life of Carbon-14 is 5,730 years and it eventually degrades to back to nitrogen.

3.C-14 has been found in diamond which scientists believe to be billions of years old.

4. Scientists would calculate the animal to be about 51,570 years old even though it would have just died.

5. This article did not in any way affect my thinking or lead me to believe in evolution at all. I'm a firm believer in the Creation & that's what I'm sticking to. Scientists have tried and are still tirelessly trying to prove evolution more and more each day. The more they try to prove this theory, the dumber and dumber they sound - well to me at least, because I know the truth. The "old earth theory" has history and the Bible backing it up more times than one, so I do agree with, and believe in that.

1.c-14 will not be detectable past 100,000 years
2. It wiill degrade into nitrogen its half life is 5,730 years
3. They claim that dimond retains carbon 14
4. by this calculation they would have belived that the creature was around 51,570.
5. To be honest, thou this article is backedby many facts, I belive that those "scientists" will "gather" more things against this. I never understood the Idea of evolution. But with this article i have seen what they base their beliefs on. This pillar to justify their faith has now fallen in my eyes.The Old Earth Theory is the only theory that has stayed strong no matter how many attempt to tear it down. God has allowed it to be.

1.Carbon-14 would be completely eliminated from an organism approximately after 103,140 years.
2.Todays measured half-life of C-14 is 5,730 years. C-14 eventually degrades into nitrogen.
3.Scientists believe that sedimentary rocks is one of the few existing materials, spanning millions of years, to still contain C-14.
4.Carbon dating would have aged the animal to around 51,570. The animal, due to the situation may have just died a few days prior to witnessing the dead animal.
5.I still believe that evolution is flawed. Scientists still attempt in proving the Bible wrong. This article was of no use in changing my opinion of the theory of evolution. There are several facts seen around us from God's Word about the Great Flood and other events that reassure us that the Word is in fact true. The evolution theory involving the C-14 disproves itself on many occasion. Why should I believe in something that not only disproves itself (and makes little sense) but also tries to discredit the Word of God?

1. You won't be able to detect C14 after 103,140 years.
2. The half life is 5,730 years of C14 and it degrades nitrogen particles.
3. Scientist believe diamonds are million of years old with C14 still inside of it.
4. They believe the C14 would keep the freed live witch is bid true since dinosaur
5. I do not believe in evolution even after reading the article because the facts and points they brought up were invalid and their logic did not make sense. About the animal thing and them living for a longer period of time. My guinea pigs and dinosaurs would all still be a live right now which is not the case. I only believe in God's word and he what he tells me.

1. After 103,140 years, Carbon- 14 will be not be able to be identifiable in an organism.

2. The measured half-life of C-14 is 5,730 years but after that it will become Nitrogen.

3. Scientists have come to the conclusion that diamonds, that are even a million years old still have C-14 included.

4. If the scientist did not realize that the pre-Flood 14C/C ratio was extremely smaller than what today’s value would be . The scientist has to calculate the animal’s age to be about 51,570 years old, even though it had just died.

5. After reading this article, I feel as though that I will never believe Evolution, simply because there is not enough information that the scientists have provided to support there theory . Another reason is that the Bible clearly has nothing to do with Evolution . I do believe that it was all God alone . And I will never change my opinion that evolution has never existed .

1. Carbon -14 that is at least 103,140 years old, should no longer be able to be detected.
2. The average half-line today is 5,730 years and after that will become Nitrogen.
3. Scientists still believe that even though diamonds are a million years old they contain C-14.
4. Even though it had just died, he would calculate the animal’s age to be about 51,570 years old.
5. Even after I have read this article, my views on evolution remain the same. I believe that God and God alone created the earth. Scientist today use their big, fancy words and try to make people believe that what they are saying really could be true and is a possibility. And they make it seem believable because of all the information and theories they have made and collected over time. But the world and the things on this earth are far to marvelous for anyone but God himself to have created it.
