This radioactive carbon 14 slowly decays back into normal, stable nitrogen.

Extensive laboratory testing has shown that about half of the C-14 molecules will decay in 5730 years. After another 5730 years half of the remaining C-14 will decay leaving only ¼ of the original C-14. In theory it would never totally disappear, but after about 5 half lives the difference is not measurable with any degree of accuracy.

Radiation from the sun strikes the atmosphere of the earth all day long.

This energy converts about 21 pounds of nitrogen into radioactive carbon 14.

Willard Libby invented the carbon dating technique in the early 1950's.

The amount of carbon 14 in the atmosphere today (about .0000765%), is assumed there would be the same amount found in living plants or animals since the plants breath CO2 and animals eat plants. Since sunlight causes the formation of C-14 in the atmosphere, and normal radioactive decay takes it out, there must be a point where the formation rate and the decay rate equalizes. Let me illustrate: If you were trying to fill a barrel with water but there were holes drilled up the side of the barrel, as you filled the barrel it would begin leaking out the holes.

A sample that causes 8 clicks per minute would be 5,730 years old (the sample has gone through one half life), and so on. Although this technique looks good at first, carbon-14 dating rests on two simple assumptions.Just this one fact totally upsets data obtained by C-14 dating.The carbon in the atmosphere normally combines with oxygen to make carbon dioxide (CO2).An illustration may help: Imagine you found a candle burning in a room, and you wanted to determine how long it was burning before you found it.You could measure the present height of the candle (say, seven inches) and the rate of burn (say, an inch per hour).
