The number of protons in the nucleus of an atom determines the element.It’s a cause avid foodie and enthusiastic eater, Eva Fairchild, can really get behind—the launch of a CSA (community-supported agriculture) farm in the small town of Fidelity, Oregon.And there’s no avoiding the fact that it takes a village—or at least the floating community of Eva’s new residence at Marten’s Marina—to solve a crime.After all, nobody can keep a good gaggle of busybodies down, not even when the threat ranges alarmingly close to home.Carbon-14 (C-14) dating was one of the first scientific analytical techniques that we employed to confirm the date for this piece, thought to be approximately 1420 B. C-14 dating requires that the material in question be at least 2,000 years old (and up to 50,000 years old) to get a result with a significant certainty. For several reasons, it is a rare opportunity for us to test Museum objects using this technique.Fortunately, we believed our papyrus fit into this time range.Additionally, with works of art on paper, we do not often have an expendable sample for this type of analysis.
There was also a historical test of a piece of linen performed in 1950 by Willard Libby, the inventor of the dating method.
We support belief in an intelligent designer—the God of the Bible. But rather than six days, it’s taken thousands of days.
Scientists use a technique called radiometric dating to estimate the ages of rocks, fossils, and the earth.
With our focus on one particular form of radiometric dating—carbon dating—we will see that carbon dating strongly supports a young earth.
Note that, contrary to a popular misconception, carbon dating is not used to date rocks at millions of years old.
