Since then, the technique has been widely used and continually improved.
This paper will focus on how the radiocarbon dating method works, how it is used by scientists, and how creationists have interpreted the results.

According to the science behind radiocarbon dating, very old samples should have no measurable C is thought to exist because of some sort of unexplained phenomenon or contamination.
Therefore, the RATE team has identified a valid anomaly in radiocarbon research which deserves further research.
Before proposing their alternate theory about the residual C dead and thus providing an age for the samples around 50,000 years, the RATE team has come up with a theory for how such an inconsistency could occur.
After rejecting contamination as a possibility for the presence of background radiocarbon, the team has come up with a model in which the accounts outlined in the Bible, specifically Noah's flood, explains the observed C.
3) Because all life existed at the same time, more organic carbon was present before the flood than after.
