The samples were from a mile below the earth, which, according to inflated evolutionary years, were 1.5 billion years old.
The helium still locked in the samples was studied as well as the rate at which the helium diffused from the rock.

Radiocarbon ages do not increase steadily with depth, as one might expect. In other words, the concentration of carbon-14 is unexpectedly low in the lower organic layers.
As one moves to higher and higher layers, this concentration increases, but at a decreasing rate.
However, for the last 3,500 years, the increase in the ratio has been extremely slight.
Radiocarbon dating of vertical sequences of organic-rich layers at 714 locations worldwide has consistently shown a surprising result.
The most common radioactive element in granite is Uranium-238.
Afterward, less carbon would be available to enter the atmosphere from decaying vegetation.
With less carbon-12 to dilute the carbon-14 continually forming from nitrogen in the upper atmosphere, the ratio of carbon-14 to carbon-12 in the atmosphere would increase.
However, before accepting any radiocarbon date, one should know how the technique works, its limitations, and its assumptions.
One limitation is that the radiocarbon technique dates only material that was once part of an animal or plant, such as bones, flesh, or wood. To understand the other capabilities and limitations of radiocarbon dating, we must understand how it works and consider the flood. However, roughly one in a trillion carbon atoms weighs 14 atomic units. It is also called radio carbon because it is radio active (but not dangerous).
