First, since carbon-14 dating is objective and reproducible, it cannot be ignored.

One cannot simply dismiss it out of hand; there should be an explanatory model for the data.

The model initially proposed was strictly uniformitarian (Libby 1955).

The purpose of this paper is to stimulate thinking and to argue for an experimental perspective.

CONSTRAINTS Any model of carbon-14 dating must satisfy certain constraints.

The carbon in carnivores would be slightly "older" but still of negligible "age".

A dead plant or animal, or wood produced by a plant, does not exchange carbon with the environment (if the sample is chosen with sufficient care), and the C/C ratio and compares that to the present ratio, using the formulas in Table 1.

A simple translation can be made between model age and percentage of carbon-14.
