There is then a ratio of Carbon-14 to Carbon-12 in the bodies of plants, animals and humans which could be considered as “fixed” at the time of death.After death, the Carbon-14 would decay and the ratio of the two isotopes would change.Besides the aforementioned items, the amount of cosmic radiation in the past, and in particular the amount reaching the atmosphere, may have been dramatically different.If one were to believe the Bible, the earth was surrounded by a layer of water vapor between Creation and the Flood.The Carbon-14 Dioxide is then utilized by plants during their normal metabolism.Animals and humans who eat these plants take the Carbon-14 into their systems just as they would Carbon-12 Dioxide.

The lower the amount of Carbon-14, the longer it has been since death occurred.

If this water vapor did exist in the past, then it would have effectively shielded the atmosphere from much of the cosmic radiation.

This shielding would have drastically reduced the amount of Carbon-14 produced.

Carbon-14 decays to a zero amount in 250,000 supposed years after its production.

It is incapable of yielding dates in the millions of years.
