Question by : How reliable are the different methods of dating things and what are the methods?
Some people claim that certain methods of dating such as radiometric dating(whatever that is)aren’t very reliable.
Answer by Raymond
A claim, by itself, does not mean much. It must be supported by evidence.
The people who do claim that radiometric dating is reliable, have been studying it for decades and have shown how it can be made to be reliable, as long as you respect all the conditions of using it. Other people have checked these claims carefully and have found radiometric dating to be reliable… as long as you respect the conditions and as long as you accept the limits (limits in how far you can go back with each different types of isotopes and how accurately each type of reading can be).
Then there are people who just say that radiometric dating is unreliable, just because it proves wrong their lies about the history of Earth.
