Can carbon dating false

By then, the relative ages (order) of the geologic column had already been worked out in some detail.Radiometric dating would later confirm the relative ages of the strata and tie them to absolute dates.

That is, an index fossil corresponded to a very specific point in the geologic column.

The depth at which either is found can vary dramatically.

In the Grand Canyon area the Cambrian lies beneath a huge column of strata; in California's Mojave Desert portions of the Cambrian are exposed at the surface.

(See Topic A1 for claims of bad dates.) Creationists, on the other hand, must explain to us how sediment and rock laid down in a mere year can yield such fantastic, orderly differences in radiometric ages.

This poses a fatal problem whether one believes in the accuracy of radiometric dating or not!
