’ In fact, there is a whole range of standard explanations that geologists use to ‘interpret’ radiometric dating results.Someone may ask, ‘Why do geologists still use radiometric dating?He may suggest that some other very old material had contaminated the lava as it passed through the earth.

However, this error is not the real error on the date.

by Tas Walker A geologist works out the relative age of a rock by carefully studying where the rock is found in the field.

The field relationships, as they are called, are of primary importance and all radiometric dates are evaluated against them.

(Creationists do not agree with these ages of millions of years because of the assumptions they are based on.) Because of his interest in the volcanic dyke, he collects a sample, being careful to select rock that looks fresh and unaltered.

On his return, he sends his sample to the laboratory for dating, and after a few weeks receives the lab report.

The geologist may have found some fossils in Sedimentary Rocks A and discovered that they are similar to fossils found in some other rocks in the region.
