Fossil dating tools
Therefore, using fossil progression as evidence for evolution is circular reasoning.Carbon dating is used to determine the age of biological artifacts up to 50,000 years old.
But the fossil order itself is based on the order of strata and the assumption of evolution.Using new samples of feldspar and pumice they ‘reliably dated’ the tuff at 2.61 million years, which agreed nicely.Later, this date was confirmed by two other dating methods (paleomagnetism and fission tracks), and was widely accepted.Carbon-14 dating has been used successfully on the Dead Sea Scrolls, Minoan ruins and tombs of the pharaohs among other things. The half-life of carbon-14 is approximately 5,730 years. dinosaurs the evolution alleges lived millions of years ago.
Levels of carbon-14 become difficult to measure and compare after about 50,000 years (between 8 and 9 half lives; where 1% of the original carbon-14 would remain undecayed).Different methods of radiometric dating can be used to estimate the age of a variety of natural and even man-made materials.
