Despite seeming like a relatively stable place, the Earth's surface has changed dramatically over the past 4.6 billion years.Mountains have been built and eroded, continents and oceans have moved great distances, and the Earth has fluctuated from being extremely cold and almost completely covered with ice to being very warm and ice-free.Worse still, sometimes they want to know how evolutionists use Carbon-14 to date dinosaur fossils!Radiometric Dating Technologies are presented to the public by evolutionists as utterly reliable clocks for dating earth rocks or biological materials.A fossil can be studied to determine what kind of organism it represents, how the organism lived, and how it was preserved.However, by itself a fossil has little meaning unless it is placed within some context.For some reason, which I have not yet figured out, at least one person per week has been asking me about the Carbon-14 Radiometric Dating Technique.They want to know if it is accurate or if it works at all.
Understanding the ages of related fossil species helps scientists piece together the evolutionary history of a group of organisms.There are more than 80 such technologies that are claimed to work.Prior to looking at the many flaws in the Carbon-14 Dating Technique, it should be noted that no radiometric technique is reliable.The energies involved are so large, and the nucleus is so small that physical conditions in the Earth (i.e. The rate of decay or rate of change of the number N of particles is proportional to the number present at any time, i.e.The half-life is the amount of time it takes for one half of the initial amount of the parent, radioactive isotope, to decay to the daughter isotope.Around 35 people from various research institutions, service providers and the mining industry attended the workshop from across Australia. The day started with a tour of the John de Laeter Centre (Jd LC) facilities incorporating the Tescan integrated mineral analyser (TIMA; ), which was the key instrument of relevance to the workshop. The John de Laeter Centre provides quantitative data used to understand processes of Earth and planetary evolution, characterise the nature of resources and materials upon which our society depends, and monitor our changing environment. The Centre is open to collaborative research projects, non-collaborative access to the equipment by qualified users for research purposes, and commercial services. These changes typically occur so slowly that they are barely detectable over the span of a human life, yet even at this instant, the Earth's surface is moving and changing.As these changes have occurred, organisms have evolved, and remnants of some have been preserved as fossils.
