And so the tree-ring sequence is extended from the living trees backwards. Conventional carbon-14 dating assumes that the system has been in equilibrium for tens or hundreds of thousands of years, and that , chapter 4).
The biggest problem with the process is that ring patterns are not unique.
Radioactive carbon, as mentioned earlier, forms in the atmosphere from radiation striking nitrogen, and that radiation is randomly introduced into the atmosphere. Also, I have had evolutionists personally tell me that it is impossible to know for sure because the earth's magnetic field fluctuation also effects how much radiation comes through the atmosphere, so there again, the constant for C14 in the atmosphere today is a complete uniformitarian assumption.
Creationists have shown that the biblical kind is usually larger than the ‘species’ and in many cases even larger than the ’genus’—see my article Ligers and wholphins? Taking this into account would bring the age of the oldest living Bristlecone Pine into the post-Flood era.
Claimed older tree ring chronologies depend on the cross-matching of tree ring patterns of pieces of dead wood found near living trees.
You would literally have to be all places in the world at the same time in order to confirm the presence, or non-existance, of grasshoppers in all locations.
If you cannot be omni-present, which would be required for such a feat, then all you can do is put a guess on the number.
According to David Rohl, the Sweet Track chronology from Southwest England was ‘re-measured’ when it did not agree with the published dendrochronology from Northern Ireland (Belfast).
