I am an Agnostic Atheist looking for a Theist to have an honest and fair debate about the existence of God. I'm not looking for a game of semantics.

Radiometric Dating is Accurate

RoyLatham
ThePipes

Radiometric dating is the method for establishing the age of objects by measuring the levels of radioisotopes in the sample. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radiometric_dating One example is carbon dating.

C14 is continually being created and decaying, leading to an equilibrium state in the atmosphere. When the carbon dioxide, containing C14 as well as stable C12 and C13, is taken i...
