Creation science is one theoretical system and evolution is another.Thus even when creationists and evolutionists use the same dating methods, they will more often than not achieve radically different results.material and is consistent with the radiometric ages of the oldest-known terrestrial and lunar samples.Following the development of radiometric age-dating in the early 20th century, measurements of lead in uranium-rich minerals showed that some were in excess of a billion years old.Age dating the Earth (Geochronology) is the scientific study of the age of the Earth and the temporal sequence of events related to the formation of the planet and the history of life on Earth.The word is derived from Geo meaning Earth, and chronology, which is the study of time, or a record of events in the order of their occurrence (timeline).In dating any object, geologists: When dating an object, a geologist measures some physical property of the object, which is believed to provide evidence regarding its age.
As these changes have occurred, organisms have evolved, and remnants of some have been preserved as fossils.
Despite seeming like a relatively stable place, the Earth's surface has changed dramatically over the past 4.6 billion years.
Mountains have been built and eroded, continents and oceans have moved great distances, and the Earth has fluctuated from being extremely cold and almost completely covered with ice to being very warm and ice-free.
When it comes to determining the age of stuff scientists dig out of the ground, whether fossil or artifact, “there are good dates and bad dates and ugly dates,” says paleoanthropologist John Shea of Stony Brook University.
The good dates are confirmed using at least two different methods, ideally involving multiple independent labs for each method to cross-check results.
