Topic: Radiometric dating - Wikipedia

Radiometric dating or radioactive dating is a technique used to date materials such as rocks or carbon, in which trace radioactive impurities were selectively incorporated when they were formed. The method compares the abundance of a naturally occurring radioactive isotope within the material to the abundance of its decay products, which form at a known constant rate of decay.

Age of the Earth: strengths and weaknesses of dating methods Most people accept the current old-earth (OE) age estimate of around 4.6 billion years. This age is obtained from radiometric dating and is assumed by evolutionists to provide a sufficiently long time-frame for Darwinian evolution.

Datazione radiometrica - Wikipedia La datazione radiometrica (o radiodatazione) è uno dei metodi per determinare l'età di oggetti antichi.Essa si basa sul raffronto tra le abbondanze osservate di un opportuno isotopo radioattivo e dei suoi prodotti di decadimento (noto il tempo di dimezzamento, ed è la principale fonte di informazioni sull'età della Terra e sulla velocità dell'evoluzione delle specie viventi).

Isochron Dating - The slope of the line is the ratio of enriched D to remaining P.It can be used in place of 'D now /P now' in the decay equation.Miscellaneous notes. Age 'uncertainty' When a 'simple' dating method is performed, the result is a single number.

As you can see from the ‘dates’ in the above table the lava flows that were less than 55 years old were given dates from 267,000 years to 3.5 million plus or minus 20 thousand years.

Young Earth creationism - Wikipedia Young Earth creationism (YEC) is a form of creationism, a religious belief, which holds that the universe, Earth, and all life on Earth were created by direct acts of God less than 10,000 years ago. Its primary adherents are Christians who subscribe to a literal interpretation of the creation narrative in the Bible's Book of Genesis and believe that God created the Earth in six 24-hour days.

History of Earth - Wikipedia The history of the Earth can be organized chronologically according to the geologic time scale, which is split into intervals based on stratigraphic analysis. The following four timelines show the geologic time scale. The first shows the entire time from the formation of the Earth to the present, but this gives little space for the most recent eon.
