Topic: The Fossil Record - Naturalism and The Theory of Evolution

The standard approach to looking at fossils in the geological column is to assume that lower is older. Since the geologic column represents millions of years of Earth's history, then obviously the fossils in each of the layers must be the same age as the layer in which they are found. What is especially interesting is that the fossils do appear to show a progression from the most 'simple' of.

1 Re: How does radiometric dating determine the absolute age of a fossil

Radiocarbon dating - Wikipedia Radiocarbon dating (also referred to as carbon dating or carbon-14 dating) is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon, a radioactive isotope of carbon.. The method was developed in the late 1940s by Willard Libby, who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his work in 1960. It is based on the fact that radiocarbon (14

4 Re: How does radiometric dating determine the absolute age of a fossil

How Good are those Young-Earth Arguments: Geologic Column Dr. Hovind (G1): The assumption that the geologic column is a base from which to calibrate the C-14 dates is not wise. G1.With a half-life of only 5730 years, carbon-14 dating has nothing to do with dating the geological ages! Whether by sloppiness or gross ignorance, Dr. Hovind is confusing the carbon-14 'clock' with other radiometric 'clocks.'

5 Re: How does radiometric dating determine the absolute age of a fossil

Unreliability of Radiometric Dating and Old Age of the Earth How radiometric dating works in general : Radioactive elements decay gradually into other elements. The original element is called the parent, and the result of the decay process is called the daughter element.

Top Ten Scientific Facts Proving Charles Darwin's Theory. The male sperm are created very differently from the female egg. The sperm are created in the testes of a male on a daily basis. This short time period between the creation of the sperm and conception within the female precludes any possibility that the male can be a part of the evolutionary process.
