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. Carbon 14 is created by cosmic rays in the upper atmosphere. It decays to nitrogen 14 with a half life of 5730 years. 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...

Not ebing able to find evidence does not mean that there is none

GoOrDin
TheOregonian

Just because YOU Personally are unable to find evidence does not mean that evidence Does not exist. Someone can not claim that, " There is NO evidence" of something. That is an arrogant not ignorant claim. "To that which you are ignorant you shall not make claims." This refers to all scientific method in evaluating anything from religion, chemistry and literature, to things like thieves and germs. I call BIGOT on everyone who claims there is NO evidence God exists simply because they...
