Tree ring dating activity

Recent research on seasonal effects on tree rings in other trees in the same genus, the plantation pine , has revealed that up to five rings per year can be produced and extra rings are often indistinguishable, even under the microscope, from annual rings.This would mean they pre-dated the Flood which occurred around 4,350 years ago, taking a straightforward approach to Biblical chronology.However, when the interpretation of scientific data contradicts the true history of the world as revealed in the Bible, then it’s the interpretation of the data that is at fault.Educators should explain to students the elliptic growth of trees.
Educators should indicate that dendrochronology is a complex science and large uncertainties can exist.Tree rings, when radiocarbon-dated give a glimpse of certain aspects of prehistoric times. Radiocarbon dating involves measuring the amount of carbon-14 that remains in a fossil.
