Radio metric dating
We typically have two options: Option-1 we accept new evidence and recalibrate our beliefs based on the new evidence OR Option-2: we deny the evidence and preserve the belief and as Carol Travis states in her talk, ” guess which one we choose”?
Technical details on how these dates are calculated are given in Radiometric dating. As with any experimental procedure in any field of science, these measurements are subject to certain "glitches" and "anomalies," as noted in the literature.
b) Better than Average Bias – also known as the “American Bias” i.e.
we are better, smarter and more successful than most people.
In a related article on geologic ages (Ages), we presented a chart with the various geologic eras and their ages.
In a separate article (Radiometric dating), we sketched in some technical detail how these dates are calculated using radiometric dating techniques.
