The samples were from a mile below the earth, which, according to inflated evolutionary years, were 1.5 billion years old.The helium still locked in the samples was studied as well as the rate at which the helium diffused from the rock.

To understand the other capabilities and limitations of radiocarbon dating, we must understand how it works and consider the flood. However, roughly one in a trillion carbon atoms weighs 14 atomic units. It is also called radio carbon because it is radio active (but not dangerous).The key questions then are: Has the atmospheric ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 changed in the past, and if so, why and how much?The assumption usually made, but rarely acknowledged, is that the ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 in the atmosphere before the industrial revolution has always been the sameabout one in a trillion.
