Instead of all the aetheists in the comments say how wrong this video is, how bout I try to rebuttal it... I mean all of his points where fairly made, and legitimate. I’m not saying that y’all are wrong, but y’all aren’t convincing anyone by simply stating that this is wrong... before you make accusations back them up. The dude in this video certainly did.

If you observe Investment bankers, you'll find that they play it really safe. Risk assessment is key. No matter how stern your decision is, IF things go tits up.... then what sort of losses are you really looking at. I suppose thats the case here, a man of belief as compared to straight atheist is atleast playing it safe to some degree.... no? i mean if a believer (Godly person) gets it wrong then... he just turns to dust, ready for carbon dating again.... but if an atheist gets it wrong, then what? just a thought

+JabberCT I've genuinely looked online for answers but I don't find any. Odd. Very odd.

Yeah I said "carbon" dating in my last sentence. I should have said "dating methods". The stone is limestone. Carbon dating won't work. Limestone fits into a radiometric dating timeline. Like I said there are a dozen different methods. But the age of the rock will be vastly different than the age of the inscription. So dating the rock is useless. Still, no one argued with the archaeologists (aka, scientists) when they dated the rock using other artifacts and data from the area. (aka, a scientific method) Not a peep. Anyways, I can't show you the results you want because I'm not a scientist. I don't collect that data. And neither do you. So as I said, 2 choices. Believe you or the experts. Easy choice for me. If you want to know I'm sure the internet has it somewhere. Stay off the religious agenda sites though. And you never answered how we can see the Andromeda galaxy if the Earth is only 10,000 years old. But never mind. i really don't need to know because I'm not a astrophysicist so its another case of me believing the experts over you. And you can't tell me that Christianity isn't the sole basis of this argument. That would be dishonest. Only young Earth creationists argue this stuff. And I find it highly disrespectful when people with no scientific background slap all the scientists across the face with pseudo-science and try to impose it into a science classroom. Especially since there are no Atheists knocking down the Sunday school door to tell all the kids they're being indoctrinated into lies. So don't play the victim card.

+JabberCT since you couldn't show me anything or tell me anything about what tests were done over and over again to the point of repeatability than its obvious that it's impossible to prove it is accurate. There is also no way to verify that the plate rock is 2000 years old. Congratulations on looking like a fool who doesn't think and is simply trying to keep his religion alive for himself. I do not look at carbon dating with religious eyes. I look at it as a process that was invented which lacks and tests. To be science, it must be obvserable testable and demonstratable. It is only observable. Seriously let me ask, why do you think carbon dating I'd accurate? What am I missing? Also I don't have any proof of God so I cannot prove he exists. Also, what's with bashing Christians? Would you encourage your children to do the same?
JabberCT (1 month ago)
jason sims - Your arguments are getting worse and worse. You're acting as if rocks are some new discovery that scientists know nothing about. If carbon dating bothers you so much, you would have looked into it by now from a non-religious source. You haven't, because you don't care. You just want your wishes to be true. How are you testing if god is real? You have nothing to go by except 1 old book. But that's OK, right? Its funny how when the Pilate stone was found, religious people demanded they date the rock. And when the results said it was roughly 2000 years old, they celebrated as if it proves the bible is true, which it doesn't. But it seems you guys believe in carbon dating only when it serves your bias.
jason sims (1 month ago)
+JabberCT After reading my comment there will be no way you can honestly say that about scientists. There must be some previously discovered knowledge about a subject. I will give you two examples which you cannot deny. Cars. Today we have what are called OBD2 scanners which will connect to the cars computer as tell the mechanic what's wrong. The scanner is equivalent to the method for determining the age of rocks. At one point in time, mechanics had no computers and had to run tests to determine what's wrong. All of these tests to verify components became common and repeatable among different cars. Knowledge. So then, they invented a scanner to make the job easier. The tool requires the knowledge of what was common and repeated. If this tool was made and it did not give successful readings, it wouldn't have been introduced. Who wants to hear they replaced a part and it didn't fix the problem because of a tool. As I said before, the scanner is to carbon dating as cars is to rocks, as information previously learned is to...nothing! Another example. Numbers! When teaching children math, it starts with the basics. Numbers. When I give my son a banana I break it in half and put one in each of his hands and count 1, 2. He Wil say 2 back and he is 2 years old. If I tried to teach him addition before learning his numbers he won't know what is going on. After learning numbers they move on to addition subtraction multiplication and division. Now addition and multiplication can be used to solve a problem and come up with the same solution. Same for subtraction and division. Later on I'm high school they move on to substitution and elimination. Both of which can come up with the same answer. These are proven to work because of the knowledge of numbers. If these didn't work they wouldn't have been used. These methods equate to all the ways to tests age of rocks. Numbers is to rocks. Knowledge of numbers is to...? Nothing. There is nothing that states or tells what tests were done over and over to the point of repeatability. I have never seen anything online. If you have something for me to read I'm open to read and learn but scientists did this backwards. They used carbon dating and then came up with knowledge they claim works. The only way to test rocks is to to back in time. If you weren't there when it was made then you are out of luck. If you deny this then you literally are crazy and misinformed.

I was told many years ago at school that carbon dating wasn't accurate. Why are the powers that be still insist on using it and teach it as factual? Do they have another agenda? Increasingly the truth on evolution is being brought into doubt for lack of honest evidence while archeological discoveries backing the Bible are being suppressed. Believe what you want or create but the truth will always point to itself in due time.

Mickelodian Surname (11 months ago)
The 50 million year gap is what is known in statistical analysis as a population standard deviation. You take the data points, you subtract them from the average of all data points, then you square them, then you add those up, and finally you find the square root. This gives a standard deviation (in this case a population standard deviation) its a measurement of how wide the variance will be in the data. So lets say we had five runners... tom, dick, harry patrick and henry They all run every morning... but what we want to know is not only how far they run on average...but what is the NORM and what is the deviation from the norm. Heres how they got on on monday TOM = 8km DICK= 5km HARRY= 2km PATRICK= 4km HENRY= 0km (lets assume Henry was sick on Monday so he never ran at all... well maybe he ran to the bathroom...) So whats the average? well add em all up and divide by 5 Total 19km / 5 = 3.8km [this is the AVERAGE distance ran, but theres a wide varience and only 5 runners] This also includes Henry... he might be sick but he's only sick today, not every day. So we include him becasue when we take future measurements he'll be better. Now we take each data point (measurement) and we subtract it from the average and then we SQUARE the result for each. This give us: TOM : 3.8km - 8km = -4.2km and then ^2 = 17.64 DICK: 3.8km - 5km = -1.2km and then ^2 = 1.44 HARRY: 3.8km - 2km = 1.8km and then ^2 = 3.24 PATRICK: 3.8km - 4km = -0.2km and then ^2 = 0.04 HENRY: 3.8km - 0km = 3.8km and then ^2 = 14.44 Notice how some are negative but end up as positive integers. These are called variances. We add all of these variance together and we get : 36.8 Then we get the square root of that and this give us a Standard Deviation of 6.066 This means that the average is 3.8km but if we were saying this is what the average runner does daily it can vary by a whopping 6.066km With just five numbers the deviation can be huge.... its gets a lot lower if you have tens, hundreds, thousands or millions of measurements. In this case since the deviation is larger than the average its a useless measurement and in terms of science it would be dumped... it may as well be random distances (in this case it is, since I pulled them from my head). But if we had a marathon, with 10,000 athletes? and we measured all of their finish times? Well thats a LARGE amount of data. Its not like one runner will take a month to finish and the winner will run it in 25 seconds! In the case of some radiometric measurements such as sampling Uranium it might be a deviation of 0.0001 or so... becasue when you are enriching uranium its really important to know just how radioactive it is. Important becasue uranium enrichment is really expensive and so are nuclear power stations... so you have to get the figures accurate to extraordinary levels. Now, if we measured the same people the next day... and HENRY was now feeling better and the distances were : TOM = 8km DICK= 5km HARRY= 2km PATRICK= 4km HENRY= 2km The new standard deviation is 2.23km Thats a huge difference... it like saying the average runner might run somewhere around 5 miles or 20 miles... But if you had a lot of numbers, or data points...well, theres so much data that the deviation is really really small. The deviation decreases in relation to the amount of data. It also decreases with the amount of data where measurements are similar. Thats why A.I. and machine learning requires so much information...the more it has, the less mistakes it makes and the more accurate it is. Same principle different application. So the +/- figure you see beside radiometric dating... its a deviation. Theres also then whats called a 'confidence level' which varies depending on the range you are looking at. So in our first case above we can have almost 100% confidence that the deviation is accurate from 99.9999%, 1.25km to 9.67km but we would be 'less' confident at a lower resolution of say 3km to 5km... in fact we can only be 65% confident at that level. How many measurements are recorded to come up with this deviation generally?... well... several hundred to several thousand or several million, it depends on whats being measured. The amount of data and the 'confidence' level in the measurements is referred to as a SIGMA which basically denotes how many measurements, or experiments you'd need to take before ONE of them wasn't in line with the rest of the data. Radiometric Dating like all measurements comes with these deviations. When scientists say the earth is 4.6 billion years old +/- 50 million years? Well the age of the earth a Sigma 6 measurement. Its based on millions of data points and a sigma 6 means there is a 99.9999% confidence level that the earth formed inside that time period. There is therefore a 0.00001% chance it did not! Anyway apart from anything else this is a nonsense argument in the video, based on no science and instead based on the posters personal religious ideology... which is probably not the most accurate source of reason. All thats being accomplished here is filling peoples heads with rubbish, rubbish they can eliminate by reading how statistics work in ten minutes online! Its akin to saying the entire worlds best trained, most authoritative and brightest minds in physics are all wrong... and Joe the bus driver who hasn't a clue about anything and can't count to ten is right... To be saying it over a technology designed and created by these folks that are all wrong all the time is nothing short of lunacy!

My friend the debate isn’t over mathematical statistics. The question is over the data input being right or wrong? Your runner analogy and calculation can only be fact if you observed the runners and logged the input. If that is not done you are only left with a mathematical statistics exercise and says nothing about the real world fact. It doesn’t matter how many runners you throw into the calculation if the input is not known through observation and logging the information then it really is meaningless. In simple math nobody argues that 2 plus 2 equals four but what can be asked is whether the first or second group of two is the right number. What if you were trying to figure out the average of the TOTAL miles run by a group of runners? You would not only have to know how many days each runner did or did not run but on what day each runner started and at what point did he start. Now if all this information is KNOWN the calculation would be fact but if it is not known all you are left with is IF this and this and this were TRUE then this therefore is TRUE. That is true for stats of the individual runner and the average of all runners. With the dating methods we do not know the initial state, if the decay rate has been constant or if it was contaminated or affected by something along the way to the present. No matter how it’s sliced and how many rocks are thrown into the pile we cannot escape assumptions and the unknown in this calculation.
RussNo1 (1 year ago)
Where did the idea that carbon dating was accurate up to 50,000 years come from?
Thing is, when you expose one method of dating as flawed, the evolution apologists will say, that's not the method used to date that stuff. There's always an out. Thing is, every public school text book that takes on the topic cites radiometric dating or the fossil record, as in, the rocks date the fossils and the fossils date the rocks. Both are terribly flawed methods but that's what students are being taught. The laundry list of dating methods are not widely addressed.

you should have elaborated on the processes by which the daughter elements may have been "altered in the past" or that half life may have not constant which defies the laws of our universe.
Bela9a (1 year ago)
In science we have accurate models of reality the only field that deals with absolutes and proofs is mathematics for the rest of the scientific field we care about more accurate models of reality. We presume that the laws of nature has been the same in the past is because if there has been changes in those laws we would see effects happening which will change a whole lot of thing for example with radioactivity if the half life of the certain element would have changed over time we would see much more of the daughter elements since we can presume that the rocks on earth had the same condition to form as today therefore we would get the same amount of parent elements in the rocks and in addition we could also conclude that the radioactivity would have been higher making the planet more hotter and possibly change life as we know it since there would have far different condition of life to evolve and countless other things would be different. Until you can show evidence that the certain isotopes had different decay rates in history we can assume that it has stayed the same.
Just A Cover (8 months ago)
"absolutes and proofs is mathematics" ==> Not quite. Maths are pretty flexible if you adjust the axioms. e.g. Ordinarily, we assume that 1+1 is always "2". However, we can also assume ohter things: (a) 1+1 is a limit that only asymptotically APPROACHES but never reaches 2, (b) 1+1 can take any value, but has a statistically high liklihood of approximating 2, (c) 1+1 can be treated as vector quantities, in which case the sum is a VECTOR sum not necessarily equal to 2. Depending on the relative directions of the vectors.

There is science like physics and chemistry and then there is philosiphy. Biology is philosophy. Problem is that their theories are taken as fact. A scientific theory is not established fact. First the theory must be proven before it becomes established facts

Also; "Biology is the natural science that involves the study of life and living organisms, including their physical and chemical structure, function, development and evolution." -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biology To suggest that biology and chemistry are different 'kinds' of science is ignorant.

what you said is correct, but.... this is exactly why scientists don't use only one method to date stuff, especially the age of the whole earth. they use different forms of radiometric dating, ice core Dating, dendro chronological dating, Palio magnetism,coral growth and many more and then compare them to produce an accurate answer. Besides, they can't even use radiometric dating to know the age of the earth, because rocks from that period don't exist anymore. But you won't dear say all that would you...

Matt Wright (8 months ago)
You're wrong. I can use observational science when I am dissecting a frog. The assumptions while dissecting a frog are more obvious since I can actually "observe" the object I am experimenting on. Historical science is different in that I can't observe the conditions of the past. I can directly observe the amount of oxygen in our atmosphere right now. There is no definite way to know how much oxygen was in the atmosphere in the past. To assume its the same amount there is today is absurd. Just a 3% difference in oxygen could affect the ages in rocks drastically. There is no absolute way to scientifically prove the age of the earth. Period.

"Other processes in the past".........such as?...................I mean if Radio metric dating is accurate from the time a rock exits the moltant state then by that reasoning it would have to return to the moltant state to alter the dating process right? Wouldn't that make the rock older than first predicted?
Marshall Jobe (1 year ago)
It's healthy to be a skeptic of religion. It is also healthy to be a skeptic of science... or, at least the part of science that interprets the facts found in the world that we find. I just read and article in "Ask an Astronomer' when someone asked: "Where did the matter in the universe come from?" Okay, if I'm right, acording to the Big Bang theory, the universe started out as a highly concertrated ball of matter. Well, where did that matter come from? I mean, where did the stuff to create everything in the universe come from? Did it just appear or something? (PLEASE answer! This has been bothering me for YEARS!) The answer was: In the beginning, there was not yet any matter. However, there was a lot of energy in the form of light, which comes in discrete packets called photons. When photons have enough energy, they can spontaneously decay into a particle and an antiparticle. his is easily observed today, as gamma rays have enough energy to create measurable electron-antielectron pairs (the antielectron is usually called a positron). It turns out that the photon is just one of a class of particles, called the bosons, that decay in this manner. Many of the bosons around just after the big bang were so energetic that they could decay into much more massive particles such as protons (remember, E=mc2, so to make a particle with a large mass m, you need a boson with a high energy E). The mass in the universe came from such decays. and on and on... But this didn't answer the question the guy was REALLY trying to ask... "where does it ALL come from" for if you tell me that there were photons before matter (btw, a read it has mass ~n * 10(-48) or there abouts, and it obviously has energy)... so then where did photons come from? and if something was there to make photons, where did that come from, and so on and so on to infinity. I mean, all these bosons and antielectrons and positrons... all these things.... where did they come from. Eventually, you will have to say that the first item or items, whatever they were, ALWAYS existed. Hmmm ALWAYS, with no creation... that's as difficult for me to fathom as some God that has ALWAYS existed is to fathom. Think about that... ALWAYS existed... it's a HUGE concept... can you grasp it? ........... I can't.
Dev B (1 year ago)
The only honest answer I've ever heard was "we don't know." I would assume what the astrophysicist was talking about was the earliest we can detect, not what started it all. I've heard reputable scientists propose ideas, Krauss with the Universe from Nothing, Kaku with the multiverse and others with 'something always existed.' But I have never heard anyone state they know for a fact where it all came from that wasn't speaking from a religious perspective. Why is "we don't know" such a horrible answer for you? And is deciding 'god did it' a reasonable fallback after we have said we don't know? Doesn't the conversation stop with 'we don't know' until we have new information?

Well, as a paleontologist and an evolutionary biologist, your conclusions are, as they say in Britain, bollocks. Don't want to debate it because Christians accept no evidence but their holy book, but I will give you credit that you at least didn't do what most Creationists do: turn off commenting. Still, your science is bollocks and radiometric dating is quite accurate. Oh, and please don't call all radiometric dating Carbon dating. Both are radiometric, but Uranium/Lead, Lead/Lead, Potassium/Argon and other radiometric dating works for very old stuff; carbon dating is only useful for 25K or so.
heymonwazup (1 year ago)
You said it yourself. It's an estimate measurement. 50 million years isn't a big difference when your talking about 4 to 4.6 billion years. At least science gives a logical reason behind things besides just God done did it.
AntiReligious (1 year ago)
This is why creationist are stupid. You cannot understand science and you cannot understand mathematics. 4.6 billion and 4.55 billion with a discrepancy of 50 million years. So let us take out our calculators now creationist and I shall go slowly not to fry your fucking mind here. 50 million divided by 4,500 million (4.5 billion if you do not know how to move your decimal points) = 1/90 = .01 x 100 = 1%. That is pretty fucking accurate. 1% range of error. Next creationist, again I shall go slowly for the mentally handicapped brain of yours, we know the initial conditions. It is not a guess or some obscure assumption. Also little ones, you guys and gals are so cute in your sandbox, there is no such thing as historical science. Observational science can be direct and indirect. That is exactly what it entails. Next creationist. Radiometric dating does not work like the hourglass analogy. Sorry but your feelings are going to have to hurt for a while. We understand how isotopes work. If your version of the earth was 6000 years old, the amount of becquerels/kilogram is released into the atmosphere. Remember little girls the decay rate would have to be 750,000 times greater of every isotope such as Cesium 137, Radium 202, Uranium 238, Potassium 40, Strontium 90, etc which would = death of creation of all life as we know it. To conclude, if you want to learn about radiometric dating, try talking to geologists or read peer reviewed papers that discuss this. It helps when you go to reliable sources. And also radiometric dating has nothing to do with evolution. So please do us engineers (myself) and scientists are favor and stop equation evolution with all this nonsense you creationist drivel out of your poorly evolved mouth. Thanks and have a blessed day.

Who knows how many collissions in space happened before our earth became what it is. In the beginning the earth was made and was without form and void [of life]. There was water - lots of it.

Except that the percentage difference between the 50 million year discrepancy is a mere .01%, which is not bad for calibration and accuracy. Even still, there are other methods used to maintain a neutral and objective accuracy when dating. *That's why scientists don't jump to conclusions professionally.* Unlike a church, you are not likely to hear presupposed arrogance at a science seminar.

+Tim Marrier yeah but the scale is wrong and one of the cones grows all the time while the other gets smaller. Evidence has been gathered and continues to be gathered through experiments in all fields of science, leading to breakthroughs and advancement throughout history. Religious evidence, and by that I mean objective, provable, repeatable through experiment evidence does not even exist. On top of that, even the circumstantial, confirmed by itself, shoehorned into place, entirely spurious body of religious evidence cannot grow unless you find another chapter in your holy book of choice.

+MegaFloyd100 Let's say I grant you all of that nonsense. That would mean 2 things, the 2nd first: 2) The scientific method is therefore structured on the 'mountain' of discoveries. On this foundation rests everything scientists think they 'know' (medicine, technology, predictions based on tests, an actual 'track record', ect). At the top, the tiny sharp nose of curiosity, called: "I wonder what..."? Religion (or really anyone who hasn't look at the reams of logistics) that is too ignorant (or is too clumsy intellectually to focus on rational implications/inclinations of what you just said) occupies the _other_ triangle: ('down' triangle). On this point rests everything theists think they 'know' (reality based on nonfiction, god (and/or God) based on nonfiction, 'our future' based on nonfiction, state of the 'world' based on nonfiction, ect). At the 'bottom' is that fundamental crushed vertebrae coccyx 'point' called "We'll SEE, huh". 1) We meet fair and square in the middle of the room at the table. All we know is what we've seen, OR, made _patterns_ from. *Patterns.* Without patterns (especially repeatable ones) we have and know nothing. In fact, we call that 'dead'. So the holy books bring 'God's discover-able history with man', and science brings 'science's discover-able history with man', and we build a logistics chart (which will both be in the a 'triangular' shape, like this: RELIGION \ / \ / \ / \/ /\------------ "I wonder what..." / \ / \ / \ S C I E N C E --- you know, you _won't_ find any dichotomies in nature. Only religion brought us that concept. What a great coup-de-gras (we will also accept from religion: seppuku) and a fitting end to apathy. Save yourself! Ask, Consider, Try, Watch, Consider, Learn, Repeat to Know! (think: ACTWCLRK) (/\ not \/)

'That's why scientists don't jump to conclusions professionally. Unlike a church, you are not likely to hear presupposed arrogance at a science seminar.'..oh, If only life was so simple lol! ....Actually Tim,i think you will find that scientists must jump to some conclusions in order to progress.Just like theists ,*both* parties in some way assume the very point in dispute prior to investigation.Scientists do this by presupposing that no supernatural realm exists.This is called 'Methodological Naturalism'.It affects the interpretation of dates because it leads to a *second* assumption of 'Uniformitarianism' which is a logical assumption based on the first assumption,but ensures 'long age' dates.

Perfect explanation. I've been saying this to people for years. So many assumptions. - What was the initial level when the rock was created? It is always the same for all periods of time at every place and time? What about how fast it cooled and where it cooled, underwater, on land, in the air as it fell from a volcanic explosion. - What all affects the amount of isotopes present thru the life of the object? Is there more of the isotope toward the center? is it even throughout? all the time, sometimes? - Can weather, sun, water, nature, anything affect the amount of the isotope present? - Can anything affect the actual decay rate? How do we prove that the decay rate is constant? We can only measure in the hear and now and our lifetimes are short comparatively, how can we know it is constant over millions of years? Seriously, I could go on and on and on.... its like the weather... so many factors affect it, even factors we haven't thought of or know anything about. e.g. Could a massive sun flare .... and so on and so on.... Again, I could go on forever. The point is. So much is based on what I see as a house built on sand. Objects could be much, much, younger than the scientific community claims, or they could be much, much older. SO, whenever I watch any documentary (and I love them) about Dinosaurs or anything else where they start spouting dates and times about when those events occurred, I chuckle to myself and think "ah.... let them have their fun... let them think thay know it all, it is good for their egos and makes them feel important and smarter than others... oh the human condition...". I know I don't know the answer, the problem is... neither do they.....

The just need to admit (and oh wouldn't be nice) that they could be wrong, that, yes, they are making a lot of assumption, rather than saying "this bone is 20000 years old", they would say "giving our current dating techniques, we've believe the bone is 20000". That would be so refreshing. I'm not saying it's not 20000, but it would be nice and intellectually honest of them. Can't you agree? I'm looking for someone that can be so honest as to agree (at least a little). People are so so sunk into their positions unwilling to budge an inch.

Yes, science makes assumption, since when is this a sexcret, one of the most powerfull features of saying is that it allow us to make predictions, the mistake here is talking as if only one pebble had been calculated, that would be stupid, but the key is consistency, if you measure rocks all over the world and they give consistent results you are allowed to start thinking you are poitint at least at the right direction, and, not all rocks are the same age, measuring rocks is not a way to measure the age of the earth, its a method to measure the age of the rock, and the oldest rock that has been found is 4.5 billion years old, that means that for it to have formed the earth has to be AT LEAST and not accurately but AT LEAST that same age.

One of the major drawbacks of Science is that not all findings and results are published or given credence. It's fair to say that science champions the idea that it provides facts which are ascertained by observation and testing. A fact should be absolute. However, Science constantly disproves previously stated 'facts' all the time. Facts are only facts when they are 100% absolute and quite frankly if there is one thing lacking in this world it's truth. Without truth we are left disputing ideologies and suppositions. I believe that the truth is being suppressed as it would discredit and debunk a huge chunk of humanities beliefs regardless of creationism or evolution.

Literally almost all science is guesswork.

Scientists make up random equations, plug in what they want, and use those numbers as their basis for everything. I'm not saying 100% dinosaurs walked with man, but the fact that the Coelacanth was said to swim the seas 380 million years ago and it's still alive today, science should dictate that that creature should've gone extinct already, yet it's still there. And try carbon dating on living things that we know both forms of science on. Living penguins get carbon dated at 8,000 years old, then they expect us to sit here and assume that their guesses of the age of earth and all of its former creatures are accurate? Science can be a real joke.

ferrel81 (2 years ago)
I've been reading a lot about radiometric dating from various creationist sources and it seems that the general claim regarding these dating methods is that they are flawed on three counts. These being the assumptions they make about 1. initial conditions, 2. non-contamination and 3. constancy of decay rates. I have 2 questions regarding this claim. 1. I am a graduate student in particle physics and, from what I've learned, it seems extremely unlikely to me that decay rates, in general, could have changed dramatically over time. For them to have done so, would not the fundamental constants of nature (coupling constants, particle masses etc.) have to have changed dramatically? If this had happened, the entire Universe as we know it would be drastically different and, based on the observed fine tuning that the Universe exhibits, I feel that such a Universe would not contain life as we know it. This might be an ignorant statement, and from what I've read, it seems that there is preliminary evidence that there may be some extreme environmental conditions that might effect decay rates. But I can't see another mechanism (apart from changed fundamental constants) that could bring about a prolonged and uniform change in decay rate among all elements and isotopes. 2. If the first two assumptions above are invalid, wouldn't we expect them to result in wildly varying results between different rock samples and different dating techniques? I know they vary, but I'm talking about order of magnitude variations. The fact that we don't get this indicates, to me, that practitioners of radiometric dating have these assumptions under control, at least to some degree. I'm hoping that a creationist with a physics or geological background can let me know how they would respond to these questions.
Marshall Jobe (2 years ago)
The problem is not the decay rate, but the way we make measurements. We don't measure the radioactivity of individual molecules, for that is probably impossible. We measure the radioactivity of the entire object. Even if the decay rate was constant, that would mean basically nothing. Your 2. is not logical and fully thought out. I wouldn't expect wildly varying results for all rocks from a given volcanic event. I would expect them for events that happened in diff parts of the world. And still this doesn't address initial conditions and the time between then and now that would affect how much of the isotope remains in the rock, not that decay of individual molecules again. Still it is a theory, albeit an interesting one.
ferrel81 (2 years ago)
Of course I believe that 'environmental conditions of all rocks on earth have gone through many changes, such as being immersed in water'... But this would not change the rate at which atomic nuclei decay because it would not change the coupling strength of the weak nuclear force. I'm a Christian, and I think that a young earth position is nice theologically, I'm just trying to reconcile it with certain observations. Radiometric dating being one of them. Do you have a physics or geology background?

Wait... did you just say you find it "incredibly difficult" to believe that decay rates could have changed? You really don't think that the environmental conditions of all rocks on earth have gone through many changes, such as being immersed in water? And you believe that contamination never occurred throughout all this time?
Lol, half-life.

I have evidence that the world is only 200 years old, like the Holy book of the Unicorn says. We use 30 liter of water a day. If you look at the amount of water in the oceans you can caluculate that the oceans would be empty if the earth were older than 200 years. Checkmate a-unicornists!! And were you there? How can YOU know the earth is older than 200 years. and all this dating is false. Don't know why, but it just is. CHECKMATE a-unicornists!!!

This video is for NASCAR fans who don't read books. And Trump voters. Same people. Next you're going to say that the Earth is 4000 years old and God created it with apparent age, right? About Ken Ham, he's a total idiot. In fact, he is mentioned in IDIOT AMERICA. A bestseller.

This is a nice, simple explanation of carbon dating. I am researching it and am finding that c.d. can get a little complicated.
vTerrible (2 years ago)
So Mike... Im sorry to say but you're describing carbon dating wrong. Its called Carbon for a reason. Scientists Look at one radioactive isotope Carbon 14. Carbon 14 has a known half life of 5730 year. So they can look at that isotope and determine the date. How? Well like you said it decades and it loses parts of itself over time, Here is a Metaphor we know what the whole picture looks like and we can see how many pieces of the puzzle are missing and we know it loses one of those pieces every 5730 years. so if 5 pisces are missing then we know it was whole 28,650 years ago. is it 100% accurate? No there is a 5730 year gap. and that's where you get your 50 million year gap. there is no a assuming it was like this or assuming it was like that. How do we know what the picture looks like? Because Carbon 14 is still made today. We can see it right as it is made. we see the whole picture.

Fact: Observations about the world around us. Example: “It’s bright outside.” Hypothesis: A proposed explanation for a phenomenon made as a starting point for further investigation. Example: “It’s bright outside because the sun is probably out.” Theory: A well-substantiated explanation acquired through the scientific method and repeatedly tested and confirmed through observation and experimentation. Example: “When the sun is out, it tends to make it bright outside.” Law: A statement based on repeated experimental observations that describes some phenomenon of nature. Proof that something happens and how it happens, but not why it happens. Example: Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation. i know you think me a fool, because i do not agree with you on this. I do understand your view. How ever. a small difference stands in our way. as for the golf ball example. i highly recommend you read up on gravity hills, it will throw your theory out the window
vTerrible (2 years ago)
Its like this. A golf ball will roll down a hill, That's a Fact. Now I have a THEORY All object will go down hills. Yes I'm guessing that a different ball will also roll down the hill but it is base of the FACT that the Golf ball did.

.... Its really like talking to a wall. A Theory is a accumulation of FACTS that lead to the Same conclusion. Is that really hard for you to understand, or is it if that is true then many of the things you believe are wrong and therefor you refuse to believe it.. here is a nice page, Hope it can help you. http://www.livescience.com/21491-what-is-a-scientific-theory-definition-of-theory.html
P R (2 years ago)
that is similar to saying " if it sounds good, accept it" . i do not give in that easy. a theory is a THEORY not a fact. that is why it is called a theory and NOT a fact. it is very easy
vTerrible (2 years ago)
Most people use the word 'theory' to mean an idea or hunch that someone has, but in science the word 'theory' refers to the way that we interpret facts.

for me science may be able to prove how but it just can't prove why we can block this question out of our minds but to believe in a life with no purpose takes quite allot of closed mindedness science just can't work this out as it is far greater than the wisdom of man

So you don't believe in science, where the evidence lay in all the benefits we get from science that are all around you every day. Yet you believe in fairy tales about a magical man in the sky creating the Earth and mankind for his own amusement, while never questioning where the man in the sky came from. And of course you happened to believe the particular fairy tale book your parents rammed down your throat is the correct one, and all the other fair tale books are wrong. Humanity truly has a long road ahead of it to true enlightenment if this level of delusion is still possible.... Damnit I'm being trolled aren't I?

Christianity is a outdated set of ideas that can never be questioned or changed. It has contributed nothing to man kind's knowledge of the universe.

+xandror Who's saying we have all wrong answers? Christians have many right answers, and, for the answers we don't know, we are trying to figure them out. You can't just say all answers Christians have are wrong. Christian cultures are not isolated. It started out in Israel, but very quickly spread to Rome, Britain, Gaul, and other parts of the world. Christians kept civilization in the Middle Ages, and, when America was discovered, almost all the new settlers were Christians. Where Christianity all started, Israel, was not isolated. The Roman Empire had connections throughout the whole known world.

Humans invented God because they would rather have the wrong answers than no answers. Each isolated culture came up with their own version.

+xandror Science and Creation go hand in hand. Just look up any of these arguments about science and evolution. We do question where God came from. Find out in more debates. People who have been taught about the Bible have, later in life, gone and compared fairy tale books and other works of literature. Christians haven't said all the other books are wrong. Look up yet another debate. I'm not the biggest scientist in all theses things (I'm a high school student), but I have watched a few Christian vs. Atheist debates, and so I know these guys usually know what they are talking about. If they don't, look at another argument, such as: the Credibility of the Bible, How Old is the Earth, etc.
