So I came across something learning about carbon dating because new student in university taking geology. So brushing up more on fossils and obscure things so the year won't be a total shock. I inevitably got interested by what I was reading then I stumbled on the creationist blogosphere pointing to this lot http://phys.org/news202456660.html (crackpot link deleted) I've learned to be scpetical over things the creationists get excited about but I don't have a background in physics (or a significant background in general) so I don't really know what to be suspicious of and how to approach it. I can read the article and find it fairly agreeable which is prompting me to ask here. I don't have access to their research papers and funnily enough I don't think I could read them anyway at my education level. Is this real? whats been done to verify or disprove it? and more out of curiosity... what would the implications be for radio carbon dating if it is real?
