Carbon 14 dating volcanic rock
The resulting rock strata may harbor fossils from a particular habitat area or ecosystem, but do not represent a particular age or era.Why else do we find marine fossils on the tops of all the major mountain ranges?And today we know through lab experiments and natural disasters (such as the eruption of Mt. Helens) that major layering of rock strata can happen catastrophically in a short period of time.Young-earth creation geologists have long held that most sedimentary strata resulted from waterborne deposits during Noah’s Flood.
(Isochron dating, which relies on multiple rock samples, is an attempt to correct this, but still has underlying assumptions based on 1 and 2 above.) Examples of Problems with Radiometric dating of rocks: Grand Canyon Lava flows: Sedimentary rocks make up the layers of the Grand Canyon and these are not dateable by radiometric dating.An examination of sedimentary rocks worldwide shows a striking consistency with the unimaginably massive Flood that wiped out whole environments.
