Is radiometric dating reliable dating in bonn germany
Job 12:8 says "speak to the earth, and it will teach thee." Secular and Christian scientists, outside of a religious framework, have examined God's creation, and it says, "I'm 13.7 billion years old." Nowhere in the Bible does it state that the days of creation are 24-hour days.Young earth creation science advocates will argue over the correct translation of "day." The translation of "day" is irrelevant. Only human arrogance would insist on limiting God, an infinite being, to a finite 24-hour day.
Are there scientists out there that will swear up and down that their dates are completely accurate?After a short argument, the author gives another example, that of lava from the Grand Canyon, giving an error of 270 million years. Geologists say the lava in question is 1.2 million years old..other words, they know when to ignore the radiometric dates. It doesn't mean "all dates are wrong." Remember, context. They claim no source of coal has been found that completely lacks C-14. It is made of carbon...given the amount of carbon in coal, I would expect to see a trace amount of carbon-14 even in samples that are millions of years old.(Beyond about 60,000 years, the C-14 becomes indistinguishable from the background radiation.) Why was supposed 230 million year old coal dated at 33,720 years? Supposedly, "accompanying checks" showed it was not due to contamination... After all, to say that the lab did not contaminate the specimen proves nothing.Keep thinking about starlight, which traveling at the speed of light, took millions of years to get here.It could not be created with the "appearance of age".
