General process of radiometric dating

However, the principle of carbon-14 dating applies to other isotopes as well.

Potassium-40 is another radioactive element naturally found in your body and has a half-life of 1.3 billion years.

and Why would a loving God allow death and suffering? The latter even contrasts the death of the first Adam with the Resurrection from the dead by the Last Adam, Jesus.

But if millions of years are real, then the fossil record must predate sin.However, radioisotope dating may not work so well in the future.Anything that dies after the 1940s, when Nuclear bombs, nuclear reactors and open-air nuclear tests started changing things, will be harder to date precisely.Omo I has always been viewed as thoroughly modern in appearance.
