Joseph Halden. Posted on May 12, by Joseph. It starts with a look, a passing glance between strangers: one blazing through the cosmos at the speed of light, the other drifting slowly with its head in the clouds. The collision is unexpected but somehow inevitable, a union that promises some of the sweetness that lay beyond the rainbow. The heavier partner is excited beyond measure, active and hopeful. Density is not familiar to either half of the couple.

Carbon - Periodic Table
The starlight problem states that if the universe was only 6, years old — as Biblical literalism and Young Earth Creationism YEC state — then there would not be sufficient time for distant starlight to reach Earth. We can see light from stars more way more than 6, light years away, therefore the universe cannot be a mere 6, years old. The furthest objects visible, quasars , have been detected 13 billion light years away. Numerous attempts to solve this problem - including some hand-waving about whether such a problem even exists - have been attempted by creationists.
Geologists do not use carbon-based radiometric dating to determine the age of rocks. Carbon dating only works for objects that are younger than about 50, years, and most rocks of interest are older than that. Carbon dating is used by archeologists to date trees, plants, and animal remains; as well as human artifacts made from wood and leather; because these items are generally younger than 50, years. Carbon is found in different forms in the environment — mainly in the stable form of carbon and the unstable form of carbon
The carbon clock is getting reset. Climate records from a Japanese lake are set to improve the accuracy of the dating technique, which could help to shed light on archaeological mysteries such as why Neanderthals became extinct. Carbon dating is used to work out the age of organic material — in effect, any living thing. The technique hinges on carbon, a radioactive isotope of the element that, unlike other more stable forms of carbon, decays away at a steady rate.
