3 assumptions of radiometric dating Absolute free chat for sex
Potassium, Rubidium and Uranium salts are highly soluble.Leaching of the parent element out of the rock would increase the age of a K-Ar sample.Radioactive rocks offer a similar “clock.” Radioactive atoms, such as uranium (the parent isotopes), decay into stable atoms, such as lead (the daughter isotopes), at a measurable rate.To date a radioactive rock, geologists first measure the “sand grains” in the top glass bowl (the parent radioisotope, such as uranium-238 or potassium-40).An hourglass is a helpful analogy to explain how geologists calculate the ages of rocks.When we look at sand in an hourglass, we can estimate how much time has passed based on the amount of sand that has fallen to the bottom.
In this way, items of unknown age can be tested and an age determined to a reasonable degree of accuracy. More tomorrow where we explore the concept of isochron dating and how it neatly destroys most of the rest of these ‘issues’.
These books contain an exhaustive study of radiometric dates that do not fit the results evolutionists expect.
There is also an exhaustive study of this subject called the (Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth) Group, a team of six scientists who are investigating the subject in depth, and have published the first of several studies. Carbon-14 dating has limited value for evolution because its half-life is too short.
One way to test this would be to analyze the sample before and after soaking it under pouring water.
This would reduce the concentration of the potassium ions to the point that it would increase the date of the rock dramatically. Helens rock known to have come from the 1980 eruption (Creation Ex Nihilo Technical Journal) yielded erroneous dates in the millions of years.
I have heard that this experiment has been done, demonstrating this effect (I am searching for the reference). Similar studies at the Grand Canyon found volcanic rocks dated at the top of the canyon older than those found in the bottom. One of the tests that has not been done on the method is to subject it to a double blind study.
