Could it be that the whole scientific community has missed this point, or is it another case of creationist daydreaming?
This argument was popularized by Henry Morris (1974, p.164), who used some calculations done in 1968 by Melvin Cook to get the 10,000-year figure. Whitelaw, using a greater ratio of carbon-14 production to decay, concluded that only 5000 years passed since carbon-14 started forming in the atmosphere!
C at all if they really were over a billion years old, yet the radiocarbon lab reported that there was over 10 times the detection limit.
Thus they had a radiocarbon ‘age’ far less than a million years!
Carbon dioxide is also used in refrigeration, fire extinguishers, and carbonated drinks.
Tests by ZBattery also showed little difference between name-brand alkalines. The Rayovac and Energizer guarantees seem to cover leakage, but the Duracell wording is a little more ambiguous (and they wouldn't answer my request for clarification).Carbon 14 is used for this example:, which was put out by Dr. is presently only 1/3 of the way to an equilibrium value which will be reached in 30,000 years. Knowing how faulty creationist "facts" can be, let's do a little research of our own.This nullifies the carbon-14 method as well as demonstrating that the earth is less than 10,000 years old. One suspects that the scientific world would not be using the carbon-14 method if it were so obviously flawed.There are two distinguishing features of alkalines: First is their long shelf lifethey've still got plenty of energy even after sitting around for seven years (vs.rechargeable batteries, which lose their charge much faster), and that they're prone to leaking.For most purposes, there's a better alternative to alkaline. Pick the features you need in the table at right to see which alternate batteries are better. Man, if you can't find alkaline batteries, you've got bigger problems. Standard alkalines don't work well (or at all) in high-drain devices like digital cameras, because they can't pump out the juice fast enough.
