Any meaningful critique of radiometric dating must take into account the complexity behind analyses and interpretations, as well as the wide range of geological applications.
Simply put, radiometric dating is not just a method used to date igneous rocks using an hourglass model of parent/daughter isotopes.
Skip lines between each, use two different colored pens.
The account of Noah and the Ark is one of the most widely known events in the history of mankind.
There can be no doubt about the Earth’s antiquity; the evidence is abundant, conclusive, and readily available to all who care to examine it.The last modification to the geologic time scale of Figure 1 was in the 1930s, before radiometric dating was fully developed, when the Oligocene Epoch was inserted between the Eocene and the Miocene.Although early stratigraphers could determine the relative order of rock units and fossils, they could only estimate the lengths of time involved by observing the rates of present geologic processes and comparing the rocks produced by those processes with those preserved in the stratigraphic record.There are many ways to keep track of time, the most reliable of which is to use actual records such as counting hours, days, weeks, and years.However, when we speak of the distant past, there are no historical records and thus no verifiable way to prove that a certain 'date' is correct.
