Radioactive carbon, as mentioned earlier, forms in the atmosphere from radiation striking nitrogen, and that radiation is randomly introduced into the atmosphere. Also, I have had evolutionists personally tell me that it is impossible to know for sure because the earth's magnetic field fluctuation also effects how much radiation comes through the atmosphere, so there again, the constant for C14 in the atmosphere today is a complete uniformitarian assumption.
In addition, even if it were possible to test for a constant level of C14 in the air, it would not be possible to test and prove that all life had the exact same amount.
It is clear that dendrochronology is not a clear-cut, objective dating method despite the extravagant claims of some of its advocates.
This procedure depends on temporal placement of fragments of wood using carbon-14 (C age and that also extends to a younger age.
A tree ring pattern that matches is found close to where the carbon ‘dates’ are the same. It assumes that it is approximately correct to linearly extrapolate the carbon ‘clock’ backwards. The closer one gets back to the Flood the more inaccurate the linear extrapolation of the carbon ‘clock’ would become, perhaps radically so.
One cannot even conceive of how such a task could be accomplished with mankind's limited ability, and that is for something we can see (e.g.
grasshoppers), let alone what is invisible to the naked eye (e.g. No consistent amount of C14 has ever been calculated in the atmosphere, nor is it possible for mankind to do such a thing without having a device that, at minimum, spanned the circumference of the atmosphere.
Recent research on seasonal effects on tree rings in other trees in the same genus, the plantation pine , has revealed that up to five rings per year can be produced and extra rings are often indistinguishable, even under the microscope, from annual rings.
As a tree physiologist I would say that evidence of false rings in surely counts much more strongly against such the notion. Considering that the immediate post-Flood world would have been wetter with less contrasting seasons until the Ice Age waned (see Q&A: Ice Age), many extra growth rings would have been produced in the Bristlecone pines (even though extra rings are not produced today because of the seasonal extremes).There are many points in a given sequence where a sequence from a new piece of wood matches well (note that even two trees growing next to each other will not have recognized that ring pattern matches are not unique.The best match (using statistical tests) is often rejected in favour of a less exact match because the best match is deemed to be ‘incorrect’ (particularly if it is too far away from the carbon-14 ‘age’).) of the White Mountains of Eastern California, were dated in 1957 by counting tree rings at 4,723 years old.This would mean they pre-dated the Flood which occurred around 4,350 years ago, taking a straightforward approach to Biblical chronology."Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men." 2 Peter 3:6-7 Pripyat is the central location where the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant accident occured in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic back in 1986.
