C) dating usually want to know about the radiometric dating methods that are claimed to give millions and billions of years—carbon dating can only give thousands of years.People wonder how millions of years could be squeezed into the biblical account of history. Christians, by definition, take the statements of Jesus Christ seriously.We will deal with carbon dating first and then with the other dating methods.
Also, clearly he has never heard of other techniques, which are way more accurate for much longer periods of time.
Scientist aren't a bunch of idiots, they don't try to measure dinosaur fossils with carbon dating, that would never work, they use other methods that are suitable.
And even then, you would never measure a standard banana and say its length is a micron.
I mean, even if your ruler was a bit dodgy, you wouldn't be order and orders of magnitude out in your answer, like the creationists are.
But even so, even if you admit that carbon dating is not totally accurate, it's not as if we have to trust a single sample.
If all measuring tapes grew and shrunk randomly every day by about 5%, the cumulative answer from thousands of of samples would approach the real value.
Unfortunately, it is an article that mostly contain poorly constructed variants of creationist claims that have already been refuted thousands of times and a strong dose of logical fallacies (such as appeal to consequences).
[…] I believe the theory of evolution takes away the humanity of humans.
The fossil record is the name given to the sum total of all fossils that have been discovered.
Interpretation of the age of fossils is based on radiocarbon dating, a technique that can determine the age of an organic object by studying the state of decay of radiocarbon, which is a radioactive isotope of the element carbon.
Both radiocarbon dating and radiometric dating have problems: they require assumptions to be made about the sample (Exactly how old is it?
