How radiometric dating supports the theory of evolution
(3A), Vestigal Structures (3B) Noah's Flood & Extinction (6C), Radiometric Dating (2A, 2B) Noah's Flood & Extinction (6C), Radiometric Dating (2A, 2B) Common Ancestors & Branching (5A, 5B, 6A) Adaption & Natural Selection (4A, 4B), Whale Evolution (6B), Did Humans Evolve?(3A), Vestigal Structures (3B) This textbook includes over 100 pages (of about 700 pages total length) dedicated to evolution theory.Measuring the uranium-to-lead ratios in the oldest rocks on Earth gave scientists an estimated age of the planet of 4.6 billion years.Segment from A Science Odyssey: "Origins."Geologists have calculated the age of Earth at 4.6 billion years.Scientists can measure bones, study mutations, decode DNA, and notice similarities in morphology (the form and structure of animals and plants), but they can never test whether creationists reject science.Secondly, evolution misses the mark as a theory because all of the supposed “tests” to prove the theory do not necessarily correspond to the idea.
Let me break this down to explain the concept more.
For example, about 1.5 percent of a quantity of Uranium 238 will decay to lead every 100 million years.
