Has radiometric dating ever been wrong korean women for dating
And the ages assigned to the layers were derived from long age evolutionary assumptions – not from the scientific facts, – as the column was established long before we even had radiometric dating.
Yet the column and its assumptions are used along with index fossils to assign dates to sedimentary rock layers and which in turn is used to date any fossil in that rock layer.
Consider also: ALL of the samples taken from volcanic eruptions of known times and dates are carefully collected and sent to the labs. It is the prime reason many scientists have had doubts about radiometric dating all along.
A Summary of the Million Dollar RATE Research Project (Radioisotopes and the Age of The Earth) Introduction: Rocks and fossils do not come with dates on them.
In fact, the very concept of strata representing long ages does not come from the rock strata themselves.
The resulting rock strata may harbor fossils from a particular habitat area or ecosystem, but do not represent a particular age or era.
Why else do we find marine fossils on the tops of all the major mountain ranges?
