Isotope dating of rocks

Radiometric dating of rocks and minerals using naturally occurring, long-lived radioactive isotopes is troublesome for young-earth creationists because the techniques have provided overwhelming evidence of the antiquity of the earth and life.Some so-called creation scientists have attempted to show that radiometric dating does not work on theoretical grounds (for example, Arndts and Overn 1981; Gill 1996) but such attempts invariably have fatal flaws (see Dalrymple 1984; York and Dalrymple 2000).

There are three important things to note about these results.

Not only that, they have to show the flaws in those dating studies that provide independent corroborative evidence that radiometric methods work.

This is a tall order and the creationists have made no progress so far.

The impact also created shocked quartz crystals that were blasted into the air and subsequently fell to the west into the inland sea that occupied much of central North America at that time.

Today this shocked quartz is found in South Dakota, Colorado, and Nebraska in a thin layer (the Crow Creek Member) within a thick rock formation known as the Pierre Shale.

Radiometric Dating - Graphical Method. For example, after one half-life 0.5 of the original parent isotope remains, 0.5 of the sample is now the daughter isotope.
