How do I explain to my kids, or to anyone for that matter, about the unreliability of carbon dating??

When I hear that such and such is millions of years old....it makes me wonder how that is possible and how that could possibily be measured??

The Archaeology Book explains why Carbon 14 dating is unreliable and so much more. Helpful review posted here- http://bit.ly/c8TK5z

Oh, and C-14 can never measure millions of years. Only to about 50-60 thousand IF you accept all the assumptions as true. By then it has all 'run out' so to speak...

It can't be measured without making unknowable, unmeasurable assumptions that stretch believability. Check my blog at http://youdonthavetohaveaphd.blogspot.com/2009/11/why-dating-method.... It has an easy experiment you can even do to show them.
