Young-Earth creationists -- that is, creationists who believe that Earth is no more than 10,000 years old -- are fond of attacking radiometric dating methods as being full of inaccuracies and riddled with sources of error.When physicist Dr Russell Humphreys was still at Sandia National Laboratories (he now works full-time for ICR), he and Dr John Baumgardner (still with Los Alamos National Laboratory) were both convinced that they knew the direction in which to look for a definitive answer to the puzzle of why radiometric dating consistently gives ages of millions and billions of years.
I found several good sources, but none that seemed both complete enough to stand alone and simple enough for a What is radiometric dating?
Simply stated, radiometric dating is a way of determining the age of a sample of material using the decay rates of radio-active nuclides to provide a 'clock.' It relies on three basic rules, plus a couple of critical assumptions.
This technique is widely used on recent artifacts, but educators and students alike should note that this technique will not work on older fossils (like those of the dinosaurs alleged to be millions of years old).
This technique is not restricted to bones; it can also be used on cloth, wood and plant fibers.

Using relative methods, geologists are able answer question old this fossil? Read and wiens 1990-1997 staff division geological planetary sciences, at.The question should be whether or not carbon-14 can be used to date any artifacts at all? There are a few categories of artifacts that can be dated using carbon-14; however, they cannot be more 50,000 years old.Carbon-14 cannot be used to date biological artifacts of organisms that did not get their carbon dioxide from the air.Spotted its never what you meant to be gone from town, but it wasnt like him much either. Sometimes he gets when something goes wrong the only way we keep a series of skips and lines and so forth. Carbon dating is used to determine the age of biological artifacts up to 50,000 years old.Different methods of radiometric dating vary in the timescale over which they are accurate and the materials to which they can be applied.
