Fault of radiometric dating

And since this favored 'date' is the only one that's trumpeted by the media it is the only date that many assume to be correct.

There are many ways to keep track of time, the most reliable of which is to use actual records such as counting hours, days, weeks, and years.

Scientists used a range of investigation techniques, including radiocarbon dating of seeds, leaves, and reeds contained in swampy sediments, to determine the ages of the ruptures.

The dating measurements were made at GNS Science’s Rafter Radiocarbon Laboratory in Lower Hutt.

Other radiometric dating methods such as potassium-argon or rubidium-strontium are used for such purposes by those who believe that the earth is billions of years old.

Radiocarbon is not suitable for this purpose because it is only applicable: a) on a time scale of thousands of years and b) to remains of once-living organisms (with minor exceptions, from which rocks are excluded).

Comparison of ancient, historically dated artifacts (from Egypt, for example) with their radiocarbon dates has revealed that radiocarbon years and calendar years are not the same even for the last 5,000 calendar years.In regard to the radiometric dating of rocks, it is known that various different radiometric methods often yield quite discordant dates for the same rock, thus proving that they cannot all be correct.In this regard, pro-evolution scientists are very selective about which dates they accept and which ones they reject: such as any date that is contrary to the Geological Time Chart -- to which all radiometric dates must fall in line with.The project has produced one of the longest continuous earthquake records of any on-land plate boundary fault in the world.Knowing the ages of so many major earthquakes enables a better understanding of the fault’s behaviour.

MYTH #2 Radiocarbon dating has established the date of some organic materials (e.g., some peat deposits) to be well in excess of 50,000 years, thus rendering a recent creation (6 to 10 thousand years ago) impossible.
