Creationism vs evolution carbon dating

Between 19 several teams made a number of radiometric measurements, and the results clustered around three ages-1.8 MY, 2.4 MY, and 2.6 MY.Each team criticized the others' techniques of rock sample selection.Marvin Lubenow gives a good description of the ten years of controversy surrounding the dating of this skull.4 In the first attempt at dating the KBS Tuff, Fitch and Miller analyzed the raw rocks, and got dates ranging from 212 to 230 MY-the Triassic period, vastly older than expected.

The "correct" answer is chosen on the basis of stratigraphic sequences, that is, what kinds of fossils are buried nearby.

Of course, the fossil dates depend on the assumption of evolution.

Most people, even the experts in the field, forget the assumptions on which radiometric dating is based.

Radioactive Dating There are basically two different kinds of radioactive dating methods.

"How can creationists expect people to accept a young earth when science has proved through radiometric dating that the earth is billions of years old?

" This article addresses that question, which represents the thinking of a large number of people today.Nontechnical readers can skip the box-figures, however, without losing much.Experimental Errors The methods that give ancient ages produce almost as many "wrong" answers as "right" ones.Certainly the majority of scientists accept radiometric dating.And yet, there is really no scientific reason proving that radiometric dating is correct, and a number of evidences showing that it doesn't work. We'll find that faith in materialism, and rejection of any supernatural activity, is the foundation stone of radiometric analysis, even before any measurements are made.Evolutionists often describe these methods as proving the ancient age of the earth and its strata.Creationists often criticize the methods as giving totally false results.Most radiometric arguments were said to favor the 2.6 MY date, but the paleontological arguments favored the 1.8 MY date-(that is where the skull would best fit evolutionary theory).And final agreement came only after paleontologists had agreed on fossil correlations involving two species of extinct pigs. Commenting on this method of selecting rock samples for radiometric dating, Lubenow asks: The question arises, "How does one know when one has good samples for dating?It furnishes some good evidences that creationists often use.But we won't discuss the C-14 method in this article.

    Radiometric Dating and Creation Science. The topic of radiometric dating has received some of the most vicious attacks by young earth creation science theorists. However, none of the criticisms of young earth creationists have any scientific merit. Radiometric dating remains a reliable scientific method. For articles on the.…

    Even the radiocarbon method often comes in for criticism although it is suitable only for objects less than 50,000 years old. This criticism usually comes from Young Earth Creationists who believe that the earth is less than 10,000 years old. Because the radiocarbon method can reliably date carbon containing objects much.…

    How can creationists expect people to accept a young earth when science has proved through radiometric dating that the earth is billions of years old. This statement - that radiometric dates are "corrected" by reference to evolution-based index fossils - is hotly contested, but examination of the technical literature shows.…

    Creation Vs. Evolution. Both evolutionists and creationists stand in agreement that radiocarbon dating, which can be used only to date organic samples, is totally ineffective in measuring the alleged millions or billions of years of the evolutionary timetable. In truth, even when dating things that are relatively young.…
