The radioactivity breakdown demo shown on the Good Morning America show is about ¾ down on this post…..all recorded C-14 dates are flawed……

Radioactivity Breakdown Demonstration

Carbon 14 dating is probably the most widely used and supposedly reliable dating method for archeological ruins. The concept is based on the idea that radioactive elements have a "half-life," a supposedly constant rate at which they decay into non-radioactive or "stable" elements. Archeologists use counts of the radioactive isotope C-14 to date organic remains such as wood, bone, and charcoal. It's usable in the range of about 50,000 years to the present. 

Here's why it works: Living animals (and people) absorb all the isotopes of carbon. They absorb the unstable isotope Carbon-14, as well as the stable isotopes C-13 and C-12. Carbon-14 decays into N-14 continuously. After an organism's death, C-14 continues to decay but no new C-14 is added. So measuring the amount of C-14 left (compared to the overall amount of carbon in the sample) tells you how long ago the organism lived and died. 

There is only one problem. Radioactive decay is not constant.

Now according to every known "law" of physics, what happened during this "live" experiment on ABC is flatly impossible! What Patterson's machine did was to take a natural process -- the decay of depleted uranium -- and basically remove the radioactivity in a little over two hours. This process should normally take over 4 billion years!

What this means is that using radioactive decay as a method for dating anything is highly unreliable, because the core assumption -- that decay is constant and immutable -- is flat wrong!
