Creationist response to carbon dating
Most orthodox SDA members accepted the Pricean flood geology and therefore criticized C-14 dating.
One of the first Adventist critics of C-14 dates was Robert W.
Yet he continued to believe that the environment of the pre-flood era was totally different from the present one and argued that the present conditions of cosmic radiation from outer space did not prevail before the flood.
Therefore, in order to understand the relationship between Christians and C-14 dating, we must include the SDA in our discussions.Woods admitted that no method had been found to accelerate or retard the radioactive decay of an atom.
