You don't measure the amount of radioisotopes in a rock. You examine the rock for crystals. You isolate the crystals and measure them. The crystals
used are certain types that show no effects of metamorphic activity, chemical activity, or other events that result in an exchange of ions. I have a
number of zircon crystals I collected and these crystals all show what is known as
. Zircons are often used in dating.
There is another dating technique called thermoluminescent dating. it has been used in many places and is also a short term dating method. Like C14 it
cannot go back in time too far. It has been used to date sediments and pottery.
Apparent age theory:
The apparent age theory I call the hoax theory because if god made light he also made light in transit to give us the idea that the universe is 13
billion years old. He created a world which has geological features that are older than 25,000 years just counting varves. He created fossil corals
that suggest that the year had over 400 days in it. He created shells that also perpetuate the hoax that there were hundreds of days in the year. He
created magnetic reversal evidence even in 50,000 year old fire pits. We could make this longer I suppose.
The curious issue here is that in the 1500s, there was a debate about fossils being created by the devil to trick man. It seems that to me that the
apparent age claim has god now in the position of tricking man.
I loved reading about the snake fossil find. I remember the snake possibly feeding on crocodiles. That's a snake to wary of!
