Christian argument against carbon dating

To that end, he quoted some authorities, including Richard Lingenfelter.Having accomplished that, Morris concluded that the barrel was still in the process of being filled up and that, given the present rate of water coming in and leaking out, the filling process began only 10,000 years ago.The curve is roughly 180 degrees out of phase with the C-14 curve.

Thus, he concluded, if our Earth were older than 30,000 years the incoming water should just equal the water leaking out.We say that the input and output of water is in equilibrium.The water level just sits there even though the hose is going full blast.That is, the equilibrium point should have long since been reached given the present rate of carbon-14 production and the old age of the earth.The next step in Henry Morris' argument was to show that the water level in our barrel analogy was not in equilibrium, that considerably more water was coming in than leaking out.
