Carbon dating live seal

Interestingly, there are actually places where several mummies can be found in the same vicinity, likely funneled by the landscape to arrive at the same spot again and again over hundreds of years.

One can only imagine a terrified lost seal crawling through the valleys, ominously passing by so many other carcasses along the way.

For some reason, which I have not yet figured out, at least one person per week has been asking me about the Carbon-14 Radiometric Dating Technique.

That means that starting with one pound of 100% Carbon-14, half of it would decay in 5,730 years, leaving 50%, or half a pound.

Then, in another 5,730 years, a second decay period would occur, leaving one quarter of a pound.

They all start with similar flaws, but Carbon-14 has more than the rest.

The Carbon-14 “dating” method was introduced by Dr. Libby (1908-1980) at the University of Chicago in 1949. Carbon-12 is the normal stable isotope of Carbon (99% of all Carbon), which is the basic building block of organic life forms.

He claimed that it was capable of dating animal, plant and human remains of fairly “recent’ origin. As they say on Star Trek, we are all carbon based units.

Laboratory research has shown that the radioactive decay of Carbon-14 occurs in a half-life of 5,73040 years through beta decay that causes the Carbon-14 to revert back to Nitrogen-14.

How could these seals have gotten so far from the ocean?

What could possibly have driven them to roam so far and so high?

Carbon dating has revealed that many of these seal mummies are hundreds of years old, with the oldest dating as far back as 2,600 years.

Something strange has been happening here for millennia, and so far scientists can only guess at what.

There are more than 80 such technologies that are claimed to work.
