Radiometric dating volcanic rock
How do we know that there wasn’t lead in the rock when it was first formed?
What is the real initial percentages of the U parent and Pb (lead) daughter elements?
Also remember that modern disasters (on a smaller scale) like Mount St.
Helens and Southwest Pacific tsunamis produced large deposits of multi-layered strata in a matter of hours or days… Yes, we all have been inundated with teaching that rocks are dated in the millions and billions of years, but are they really? Do they really NEED to be millions or billions of years old?
This is a real and common problem with radiometric dating techniques.
Consider also: ALL of the samples taken from volcanic eruptions of known times and dates are carefully collected and sent to the labs. It is the prime reason many scientists have had doubts about radiometric dating all along.
This method is used only on metamorphic and igneous rocks – not sedimentary rocks (which are rocks laid down by water – and is where the fossils are primarily found).
The radio-dating calculations are based on a series of Assumptions: 1) The decay rate has not changed.
Young-earth creation geologists have long held that most sedimentary strata resulted from waterborne deposits during Noah’s Flood.
How can the very top, volcanic rock be older than the very bottom layer basalt rock?
Even evolutionists admit that those Indian artifacts are not 1.3 billion years old!
Since the early 20th century, Radioisotope dating has been used to bolster the vast time spans ascribed to the geologic record.
However, research by geologist John Woodmorappe (a pen name) revealed that the radiometric methods used today were actually hand-picked to coincide with the dates previously assumed for the geologic column diagrams.
