Previously, the basics of the process were explained. This part brings up an interesting dilemma: Why is it found in rocks that are allegedly millions of years old? Carbon-14 should have vanished after 5,730 years. Excuses are made about bad measurements and contamination, but those do not withstand scrutiny.

It’s a dilemma for evolutionists, who believe the rocks are millions of years old.Many people think that scientists use radiocarbon to date fossils. After all, we should be able to estimate how long ago a creature lived based on how much radiocarbon is left in its body, right?
