This Carbon-14 Discovery Is a Gem
Job 28:16
"It [wisdom] cannot be valued with the gold of Ophir, with the precious onyx, or the sapphire."
Because half of the radioactive carbon-14 in anything decays to nonradioactive material in 5,730 years, things that are supposedly millions of years old cannot possibly have any. At least that's what...

One small correction. They use various forms of radiometric dating, but not carbon dating for millions of years since Carbon dating isn't accurate past 10,000 if I recall correctly. The other forms have been shown to be accurate though.

Now I know a creationalist will bring up radiometric dating on volcanic rock in which we know the actual age of,being 20 - 60 years and it dates back millions of billions. There is a very simple explanation for this. The rocks were formed from magma (molten rock). That molten rock is millions of billions of years old.

Of course creationist also tend to gloss over or deny the fact that there are a lot of transitional fossils found (although on a technical level all fossils are, but that's often confusing to creationists so I don't bother bringing that up until I know they have at least an understanding of evolution).
