Radiometric dating reliability Pinay milf dating site
Vast amounts of data overwhelmingly favor an old Earth.
Several hundred laboratories around the world are active in radiometric dating.
Many geologists claim that radiometric “clocks” show rocks to be millions of years old.
However, to read any clock accurately we must know where the clock was set at the beginning.
Radiometric dating is self-checking, because the data (after certain preliminary calculations are made) are fitted to a straight line (an "isochron") by means of standard linear regression methods of statistics.
The slope of the line determines the date, and the closeness of fit is a measure of the statistical reliability of the resulting date.
Thus in this case, as in many others that have been raised by skeptics of old-earth geology, the "anomaly" is more imaginary than real.
Other objections raised by creationists are addressed in [Dalrymple2006a].
Whenever possible we design an age study to take advantage of other ways of checking the reliability of the age measurements.
Dating schemes based on rates of radioactivity have been refined and scrutinized for several decades.
