So rock samples that should read zero are occasionally placed into the instruments to test their accuracy.
What better samples to use than fossils, coals, and limestones, which are supposed to be millions of years old and should have no radiocarbon?
Located in Cretaceous layers that were supposedly millions of years old, the fossilized shell and wood yielded radiocarbon “ages” of 48,710 and 42,390 years respectively.
(This percentage, technically known as percent modern carbon [p MC], shows the ratio of radiocarbon in the rocks and fossils compared to the amount we find in living things).
This finding is consistent with the belief that rocks are only thousands of years old, but the specialists who obtained these results have definitely not accepted this conclusion. To keep from concluding that the rocks are only thousands of years old, they claim that the radiocarbon must be due to contamination, either from the field or from the laboratory or from both.
Imagine the surprise when every piece of “ancient” carbon tested has contained measurable quantities of radiocarbon!
4 Fossils, coal, oil, natural gas, limestone, marble, and graphite from every Flood-related rock layer—and even some pre-Flood deposits—have all contained measurable quantities of radiocarbon (Figure 2).
All these results have been reported in the conventional scientific literature. At current decay rates, the number of radiocarbon atoms is halved every 5,730 years.
