Does carbon dating proved evolution
And this big sequence is then used to 'correct' C14 dates. (3.) Even if the rate of decay is constant, without a knowledge of the exact ratio of C12 to C14 in the initial sample, the dating technique is still subject to question.(4.) Traditional 14C testing assumes equilibrium in the rate of formation and the rate of decay.Example: wood found in a grave of known age by historically reliable documents is the standard for that time for the C14 content.
I hope this helps your understanding of carbon dating.
We believe all the dates over 5,000 years are really compressible into the next 2,000 years back to creation.
So when you hear of a date of 30,000 years for a carbon date we believe it to be early after creation and only about 7,000 years old.
There is no hole in our psyche that makes us ignorant to that fact.
We are not stupid, we just have a different perspective based on our worldview – based on the infallible testimony that is in the Bible.
