Dating fossils using radioisotopes

the global Flood of 2,348 BC) as global catastrophes reset all the radiometric/atomic “clocks” by invalidating the evolutionist’s main dating assumption that there have never been any global catastrophes.The assumptions are similar to the assumptions used in carbon dating.Scientists attempt to check the accuracy of carbon dating by comparing carbon dating data to data from other dating methods.

This restriction extends to animals that consume seafood in their diet.Any radiometric dates that show a supposedly “old” rock to be young are rejected “Few people realize that the index fossil dating system, despite its poor assumptions and many problems, is actually the primary dating tool for geologic time. In other words, radiometric dating methods are actually fit into the geological column, which was set up by [index] fossil dating over 100 years ago.”(Michael Oard, meteorologist and creationist scientist, 1984) All radiometric dating methods use this basic principle to extrapolate the age of artifacts being tested.These long time periods are computed by measuring the ratio of daughter to parent substance in a rock, and inferring an age based on this ratio.The mathematical premise undergirding the use of these elements in radiometric dating contains the similar confounding factors that we find in carbon-14 dating method.Most scientists today believe that life has existed on the earth for billions of years.This belief in long ages for the earth and the evolution of all life is based entirely on the hypothetical and non-empirical Theory of Evolution.
