Chat rooms with chubby guys - Elements used in radioactive dating
The New Zealand physicist Ernest Rutherford, suggested in 1905 that the exact age of a rock could be measured by means of radioactivity.For the first time he was able to exactly measure the age of a uranium mineral.When Rutherford announced his findings it soon became clear that Earth is millions of years old.
Further evidence comes from the complete agreement between radiometric dates and other dating methods such as counting tree rings or glacier ice core layers.
Many Christians have been led to distrust radiometric dating and are completely unaware of the great number of laboratory measurements that have shown these methods to be consistent.
Geology is the study of the composition and physical properties of rocks, minerals, gems and other related earth materials, including diamonds and crystals.
Scientists gain an understanding of the Earth's history by studying its composition.
Here you can discover the power of geological processes.
