Topics: How geologists use relative and radiometric dating to age rocks?

For many people, radiometric dating might be the one scientific technique that most blatantly seems to challenge the Bible’s record of recent creation. For this reason, ICR research has long focused on the science behind these dating techniques.

Along with scores of other Bible-believing geologists, ICR scientists have made key observations that compel us to reject the millions-of-years apparent ages that these techniques yield:

These observations give us confidence that radiometric dating is not trustworthy. Research has even identified precisely where radioisotope dating went wrong. See the articles below for more information on the pitfalls of these dating methods.

Fossils can be analysed and their relationship to evo–devo established only in light of  phylogeny  and dating of their places in geological time.

If the reconstructed phylogeny is sufficiently robust, we often discover that apparently homologous features shared between crown groups were acquired independently in distinct lineages by convergent evolution, as suggested in scenario d of  Fig. 2. Convergences that are identified in this way are called 'homoplasies'. Cladograms allow the important definition of stem and crown lineages as shown in  Fig. 3.

К аков же возраст планеты Земля? Существуют огромная разница во мнениях. Наиболее общая точка зрения оценивает возраст земли в 4.5 миллиарда лет. 1 Другие говорят, что она старше или моложе. Самый юный возраст, который был оценен на научной основе, находится в диапазоне от 6 до 10 тысяч лет. Эволюционизм, конечно, требует миллиарды лет, для того, чтобы обеспечить правдоподобность возникновения жизни и последовательности эволюции от амебы до человека. Теоретически, креационизм остается действительным в широком диапазоне оценок возраста.

Ученые предложили множество методов оценки возраста. Большинство систем, продвигаемых эволюционистами, используют радиоактивность. Используются различные радиоактивные элементы, включая углерод-14, уран-238, торий-232 и калий-40. Кстати, важно понять, что для большинства скальных пород напластований возраст уже был назначен задолго до использования радиоактивного метода, в 1911 году. 2
