The bristlecone pine became famous in scientific circles through the work of dr edmund schulman 19081958 of the university of arizona his dendrochronological studies spanned almost thirty years of which the last five were spent mostly in the white mountains 1 through the study of annual growth rings of these trees a fairly precise method of absolute dating has been obtained.
Dendrochronology is based on the phenomenon that trees usually grow by the addition of rings dendrochronological findings played an important role in the early days of radiocarbon dating tree rings provided truly knownage material needed to check the accuracy of the carbon14 dating method.
radiocarbon dating also referred to as carbon dating or carbon14 dating is a method for determining the age of an object containing organic material by using the properties of radiocarbon a radioactive isotope of carbon the method was developed in the late 1940s by willard libby who received the nobel prize in chemistry for his work in 1960 it is based on the fact that radiocarbon 14.
geochronology nonradiometric dating in addition to radioactive decay many other processes have been investigated for their potential usefulness in absolute dating unfortunately they all occur at rates that lack the universal consistency of radioactive decay sometimes human observation can be maintained long enough to measure present rates of change but it is not at all certain on a.
My review of jonathan sarfatis the greatest hoax on earth refuting dawkins on evolution this review provides an overview of the greatest hoax on earthwhile much of the book seems convincing at first glance after investigating the literature i found problems with how it represents many issues.
Indicators that the earth is over 8000 years old there are three direct indicators that the earths age is in excess of 8000 years indicator some bristlecone pine trees in the whiteinyo mountain range of california date back beyond 2000 bce one labeled methuselah germinated in 2726 bce.
The holocene is the latest of several interglacial phases within the quaternary ice age during the peak of the latest glacial phase 18000 years ago the global sea level was some 300 feet 90 metres lower than it is today and new guinea and tasmania were.

Jack the hammer or the sediment was never alive carbon dating can only be done on living or once living matter i do not wish you or anyone who commented here think that i am namecalling when i use the term ignorant but the secular scientist rely heavily on the ignorance of the public.
