(The barrel is made deep enough so that we don't have to worry about water overflowing the rim.) Henry Morris argued that if we started filling up our empty barrel it would take 30,000 years to reach the equilibrium point.
Thus, he concluded, if our Earth were older than 30,000 years the incoming water should just equal the water leaking out.
That is, the equilibrium point should have long since been reached given the present rate of carbon-14 production and the old age of the earth.
The argument may be compared to filling a barrel which has numerous small holes in its sides.(Strahler, 1987, p.158) Lingenfelter actually attributed the discrepancy between the production and decay rates to possible variations in the earth's magnetic field, a conclusion which would have ruined Morris's argument.Henry Morris chose not to mention that portion of the paper!It's a great argument except for one, little thing.The water is coming out of the hose at a steady rate as our model assumed!
