Age earth dating
Age dating the Earth (Geochronology) is the scientific study of the age of the Earth and the temporal sequence of events related to the formation of the planet and the history of life on Earth.The word is derived from Geo meaning Earth, and chronology, which is the study of time, or a record of events in the order of their occurrence (timeline).In using these dating methods, evolutionists assume that there was no global flood as told in the Bible or Qur'an.Therefore, at their outset these methods are used by investigators who seek to prove their interpretation of the data.
Isochron dating has been developed in an attempt to solve such problems.
However, research by creationists has revealed a large number of problems with radiometric dating.
In some cases such as Carbon-14 dating, radioactive dating actually gives strong evidence for a young Earth, while other methods such as K-Ar dating and Isochron dating are based on faulty assumptions and are so unreliable as to be useless.
The methods are all ultimately calibrated to relative dates of the geologic column, such that data that conflicts with a fossil's or rock's placement in the geologic column is explained away by the evolutionary theoretical system.
For example, Carbon-14 would decay to nothing in well under 1 million years, so if Carbon-14 is found in a dinosaur fossil it is interpreted as resulting from contamination.
