Radiometric dating and carbon dating of fossils
An examination of sedimentary rocks worldwide shows a striking consistency with the unimaginably massive Flood that wiped out whole environments.
It caused massive sedimentary layering and sorting and fossilizing of the creatures buried therein.
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.
In geology, the buzzword is “The present is the key to the past” – but today – no 100 mile cavern systems are being formed, vitually no fossils are being formed, and no new strata covering entire continents are being laid down. Unfortunately, uniformitarianism has gripped geology academia and no other viewpoints are allowed.
What we see around the earth are huge layers of sedimentary rock filled with dead things. This evolutionary assumption has become a naturalistic religion, an ideology established already before Darwin published his book in 1859.
The resulting rock strata may harbor fossils from a particular habitat area or ecosystem, but do not represent a particular age or era.
Young-earth creation geologists have long held that most sedimentary strata resulted from waterborne deposits during Noah’s Flood.
How can the very top, volcanic rock be older than the very bottom layer basalt rock?
Even evolutionists admit that those Indian artifacts are not 1.3 billion years old!
Since the early 20th century, Radioisotope dating has been used to bolster the vast time spans ascribed to the geologic record.
However, research by geologist John Woodmorappe (a pen name) revealed that the radiometric methods used today were actually hand-picked to coincide with the dates previously assumed for the geologic column diagrams.
