List of radioactive dating methods
Knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.
Radiometric dating is based on the fact that radioactive isotopes decay to form isotopes of different elements.
There is also a difference in the timescale used to explain the layers.
Determining the relative age of a rock layer is based on the assumption that you know the ages of the rocks surrounding it.
Uniformitarian geologists use so-called dating methods to determine the ages of the surrounding rocks.
Certain types of rocks, especially those that form from magma (igneous), contain radioactive isotopes of different elements.
