Radiometric dating accuracy
The next section is Other Radiometric Dating Methods.
Yes, its true, the person using these dates must make unprovable assumptions, such as the three listed.
In his conclusion, he states "It (Carbon-14) does not give dates of millions of years." Correct, and there isn't a geologist out there who would claim Carbon-14 to establish a date of millions of years.
We know the limitations of Carbon-14..course, this doesn't prevent the author from doing a little mud-slinging at the old earth geologist!
Job 12:8 says "speak to the earth, and it will teach thee." Secular and Christian scientists, outside of a religious framework, have examined God's creation, and it says, "I'm 13.7 billion years old." Nowhere in the Bible does it state that the days of creation are 24-hour days.
(Beyond about 60,000 years, the C-14 becomes indistinguishable from the background radiation.) Why was supposed 230 million year old coal dated at 33,720 years? Supposedly, "accompanying checks" showed it was not due to contamination... After all, to say that the lab did not contaminate the specimen proves nothing.Most geologists understand the dating techniques, and accept their limitations. The author gives a very good description of Carbon-14, except the flood part.He assumes the coal beds were all laid down during the Flood, but I have already disproved that theory .Keep thinking about starlight, which traveling at the speed of light, took millions of years to get here.It could not be created with the "appearance of age".
