Radiometric age dating for kids Free cam to cam chat with sri lankan mature women
Let us imagine that the date reported by the lab was 150.7 ± 2.8 million years.
Our geologist would be very happy with this result.
I had some trouble finding a secular site that would use normal people terms to describe what scientists are doing when they study Radioisotopes [radio-eye-so-toe-ps] (the bits in rocks that change over time).
I wonder if they are trying to keep this stuff mysterious so we will just trust them?
For example, a geologist may examine a cutting where the rocks appear as shown in Figure 1.
Here he can see that some curved sedimentary rocks have been cut vertically by a sheet of volcanic rock called a dyke.
He assumes therefore that Sedimentary Rocks A are the same age as the other rocks in the region, which have already been dated by other geologists.
In the same way, by identifying fossils, he may have related Sedimentary Rocks B with some other rocks.
Creationists would generally agree with the above methods and use them in their geological work.
I’ve mentioned Radiometric Dating several times recently, but have been putting off covering this because it’s a major Eye-Crosser!!!
God wasn’t going to let me get away with avoiding this topic, because it is at the very heart of the Evolutionist’s creed.
