Dating of rock layers

He believed the Earth started off as a molten mass and subsequently transformed to a hot solid mass during cooling. Instead, Chamberlain proposed a model of cold accretion for the Earth.

That is, the earth accreted from small, cold chunks of material and then heated up at a later time.

When viewed from a biblical perspective, the evidence is consistent with what one would expect from a worldwide Flood.

This research reminds us of the caution we should accord to every fossil reconstruction.

Carbon has unique properties that are essential for life on Earth.

Familiar to us as the black substance in charred wood, as diamonds, and the graphite in “lead” pencils, carbon comes in several forms, or isotopes.

Chronological Analysis of the Scriptures- Literal interpretation of the scriptures led some people to conclude that the Earth was created approximately 6,000 years old.This is because, in just 100,000,000 years of time, not enough parent will have decayed for daughter concentrations to be reliably measured.Sedimentary rocks- Sedimentary rocks are generally not datable using isotopic methods because the grains in sedimentary rocks may come from many different rocks of different ages.It makes no sense at all if man appeared at the end of billions of years.We will deal with carbon dating first and then with the other dating methods.
