Geologic dating system erroneous

In principle, any material of plant or animal origin, including textiles, wood, bones and leather, can be dated by its content of carbon 14, a radioactive form of carbon in the environment that is incorporated by all living things.

Because it is radioactive, carbon 14 steadily decays into other substances.

Since 1947, scientists have reckoned the ages of many old objects by measuring the amounts of radioactive carbon they contain.

New research shows, however, that some estimates based on carbon may have erred by thousands of years.

To me it has been a real eye opener to see all the processes that are taking place and their potential influence on radiometric dating.
