However, some christians suggest that the geologic dating techniques are unreliable, that they are wrongly interpreted radiometric dating textbooks. Radiometric dating on trial: how reliable is it that of radiometric dating from radioactive decay i assert that radiometric dating is completely unreliable. Radiometric dating still reliable (again), research shows date: september 18, 2010 source: national institute of standards and technology (nist) summary. Thus i have successfully shown that at least 1 of the 3 major radiometric dating techniques is unreliable c-14 dating the uranium-thorium-lead. Radiometric dating: unreliable it has been proven to be unreliable because radiometric dating has been used on rocks of known age and not given accurate information for example a rock from mt etna basalt, sicily was was tested and was dated 330,000-170,000 years old when it was only 122 bc old.
The unreliability of radiometric dating the thesis of this article is that radiometric dating is entirely unreliable this dating process requires at least five unprovable assumptions: 1 we know the starting and ending numbers 2 the rate has remained the same 3 the system has remained closed 4. And it is radiometric dating radiometric dating of rocks and fossils is totally unreliable and utterly useless as a chronometer it gets even better. Although the half-life of carbon-14 makes it unreliable for dating fossils any radiometric dates that show a all radiometric dating methods use this. Is carbon dating reliable responses from people who know about this field.
Radiometric dating supposedly proves that the earth is billions of years old the theory behind radiometric dating sounds very convincing but does it actually work in practice. How accurate are modern radiometric dating methods what is the best piece of evidence that refutes the claim that radiometric dating is unreliable. The way it really is: little-known facts about radiometric dating wouldn’t they have abandoned the method long ago if it was so unreliable. Creationist objections to radiometric dating creationist objections to radiometric dating techniques basically fall into three categories: 1) creationists often claim that radiometric dates are unreliable because the entire theory is based on invalid assumptions.
Radiometric dating is a much misunderstood phenomenon evolutionists often misunderstand the method, assuming it gives a definite age for tested samples. People who ask about carbon-14 (14 c) dating usually want to know about the radiometric dating methods that are claimed to give millions and billions of years—carbon dating can only give thousands of years people wonder how millions of years could be squeezed into the biblical account of. Radiometric dating radiometric dating is not a reliable way to determine the age of a rock perhaps the best defense of radiometric dating we have ever seen is an essay on radiometric dating by jonathon woolf 1 it is worth examining because woolf does a much better than average job of presenting the evolutionists’ arguments. Fluctuations show radioisotope decay is unreliable by brian thomas, ms more radiometric dating do young c-14 results reflect contamination.
A common creationist argument is that radiometric dating must be unreliable the continued concordance between radiometric and other dating schemes just makes. More bad news for radiometric dating thus its radiometric age would tend to and/or physical modifications that made the ages unreliable indicators.
Young earth creation science argument index, radiometric dating gives unreliable results. Anomalies of radiometric dating logic and science dictates that if something which is assumed to have a uniform rate is shown in a single example to not be uniform, the theory must be abandoned as unreliable. Unreliable what dating methods are there a thread called how reliable is radiometric dating is not the right place to talk about rocks. Radiometric dating a christian perspective dr roger c wiens suggest that the geologic dating techniques are unreliable, that they are wrongly interpreted. Young earth creationists dismiss radiometric dating as unreliable, whats the truth.
Thus any method based on simple parent to daughter ratios such as rb-sr dating is bound to be unreliable radiometric dates radiometric dating is. This illustrates the whole problem with the radioactive dating but i do agree with the creationists in this case because radiometric dating is seemingly unreliable. Radiometric dating gives unreliable results source: brown, walt, 1995 in the beginning: compelling evidence for creation and the flood phoenix, az: center for scientific creation, p 24 creationwiki response: (talkorigins quotes in blue) 1. Fluctuations show radioisotope decay is unreliable by brian thomas more radiometric dating. Radiometric dating is consistent with milankovitch cycles, which depend only on astronomical factors such as precession of the earth's tilt and orbital eccentricity (hilgen et al 1997) radiometric dating is consistent with the luminescence dating method (thompson nd thorne et al 1999. Radiometric dating is considered an absolute method because it supposedly is an and discussion will be presented of how these methods can give unreliable dates. The age of the earth is normally estimated by radiometric dating vardiman et al claim that this would result in unreliable radioisotopic dating.
