So it’s more important than ever to be not just subscribing to but actively supporting reputable, non-sensationalistic creation organizations committed to this important task.Please, keep helping us defend and proclaim the real history of the Bible, on which the credibility of the Gospel itself depends.
Their are many other isotopes other than carbon14 that can be used to date dinosaur fossils and much farther back: (from wikipedia) Potassium Argon Dating-This involves electron capture or positron decay of potassium-40 to argon-40.Many try to discount radiometric dating based solely on the half life of carbon 14(and therefore it cannot be used for things that are billions or millions of years old). This was a joint event of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) and the Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS). Radiometric dating is based on the radioactive decay of certain elements.Potassium-40 has a half-life of 1.3 billion years The uranium-lead radiometric dating scheme has been refined to the point that the error margin in dates of rocks can be as low as less than two million years in two-and-a-half billion years.A sample purporting to be from the Flood era would not be expected to give a ‘radiocarbon age’ of about 5,000 years, but rather 20,000–50,000 years.
Indeed, that is consistently what one obtains from specimens of oil, gas and fossil wood from layers allegedly ‘millions of years’ old.One of its great advantages is that any sample provides two clocks, one based on uranium-235's decay to lead-207 with a half-life of about 700 million years, and one based on uranium-238's decay to lead-206 with a half-life of about 4.5 billion years, providing a built-in crosscheck that allows accurate determination of the age of the sample even if some of the lead has been lost.Radiometric dating is a very reliable tool for very precise and accurate dating (however it is a hard method to perform) of fossils and rocks from thousands to billions of years in age.We have been repeatedly surprised when on ministry tours how few people even know about the soft-tissue finds by secular scientists.This is an exciting time to be a creationist, both getting this sort of information, and being able to pass it on.This would certainly be in the interests of scientific truth—especially following the repeated findings of soft tissue in dinosaur bones, and now even seemingly irrefutable DNA in dinosaur specimens.
