Radio dating problems Free naked stranger chat
Radiometric dating, radioactive dating or radioisotope dating is a technique which is used to date materials such as rocks or carbon, in which trace radioactive impurities were selectively incorporated when they were formed.
The method compares the abundance of a naturally occurring radioactive isotope within the material to the abundance of its decay products, which form at a known constant rate of decay.
In fact, 14C is forming FASTER than the observed decay rate.
This skews the 'real' answer to a much younger age.
Example: wood found in a grave of known age by historically reliable documents is the standard for that time for the C14 content.
This standard content of C14 can then be used for wood not associated with a historically documented date.
So when you hear of a date of 30,000 years for a carbon date we believe it to be early after creation and only about 7,000 years old.Despite this she continually uses the c14 dates to create 'absolute' chronologies.She says this is ok so long as you take into account the correction factors from dendrochronology.and is now the principal source of information about the absolute age of rocks and other geological features, including the age of fossilized life forms or the age of the Earth itself, and can also be used to date a wide range of natural and man-made materials.Together with stratigraphic principles, radiometric dating methods are used in geochronology to establish the geologic time scale.
