Since plants breath carbon dioxide, they will intake some C-14 as well and make it part of their tissue.

This means if a specimen contained, say, a pound of C-14 (to make things understandable), in 5,730 years, half of it will be gone, and in another 5,730 years, half of the remaining C-14 will disappear.

Ironically, despite its popularity, it is also one of the most misunderstood methods of dating.

Many people mistakenly believe carbon dating can be used to date objects that are millions or even billions of years old.

A correct date is not possible unless there was neither the addition nor loss of parent or daughter isotopes.” This assumption is not one that I am willing to concede on.

In order for carbon dating to work (and this applies to other dating methods as well), the parent and daughter concentrations must have not been altered throughout the specimen’s history.
