I propose this thread to examine creationist claims about radiocarbon dating, and in particular the purportedly young ages that are sometimes found in materials that are actually very old.

This is important because these supposedly young ages are being used to "prove" a young earth.

Coyote, just some questions about radiocarbon dating itself,

1) Is carbon 14 produced in relatively small quantities (relative to carbon 12) in the atmosphere?
2) Is its production directly reduced by a stronger magnetic field?
3) Is the magnetic field currently weaker now than in times past?
