This dilution artificially skews a measurement if we use today's ratios.

An example follows: We have a one-pint container and pour its contents into a graduated flask, then come back each day to check on the water's evaporation.

Let's say that 1/4th of the water evaporates each day, so that at the end of day 3, someone notes that there is 1/4th of the water remaining, where 3/4ths have evaporated.

Today, scientists attempt to determine the age of dead organisms by measuring the ratio of C-12 to C-14, by comparing it to an assumed but unobserved initial ratio, and determining how long it would take to get from the assumed but unobserved initial ratio at an assumed but unobserved rate of decay.

Here are the key assumptions: There is one fact that makes it highly unreasonable to believe that the proportion of C-14 to C-12 was the same in the past as it has been in recent history: It is not in equilibrium.

This assumes, however, that today's C-14 increase is only the result of the industrial revolution (which is unfalsifiable) and that the proportion was in equilibrium prior to the 19th century (which is also unfalsifiable).

In other words, while acknowledging the problem posed by the increasing C-14, the uniformitarian scientists have failed to solve it, and yet continue to use the methodology.

If the fossil record is the record-of-death of the Great Flood, then the level of overall biomass prior to the Flood eclipses today's overall biomass by 100 times or more.

This would mean that, given a relatively constant C-14 production, the living systems prior to the Flood would have diluted the overall available C-14.

Given that the C-14 proportion is currently increasing, the actual age could in fact be much lower.

But it cannot be higher, because if the coal and natural gas were as old as the evolutionary paradigm requires, the C-14 in them would have decayed long ago.[5] Evolutionists have speculated that the C-14 may be due to contamination from other radioactive elements in the surrounding rock.

It is impossible to determine whether it has always been increasing (as argued by some creationists) or whether it has undergone cycles of increase and decrease (as argued by other creationists and evolutionary scientists).
