"Carbon-14 in fossils, coal, and diamonds disproves evolutionary dating methods (#C856)
Scientists have detected significant Carbon-14 in items thought to be over 250 million years old, 1 2 setting the maximum possible age instead to only 100,000 years. 3 4 This refutes evolutionary dating methods.

- Carbon-14 has a half-life of 5730 years (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon-14, Rhodes, 2012, p. 102), meaning after 100,000 years the C-14 would be less than a thousandth of one percent the original amount. ↩
