(See Icon’s not as […] Continue reading about Castle Hill much younger than James Cook University age reported in Townsville Bulletin It is quite simple to understand how radioactive dating works when you think about it.
It is impossible to measure the age of anything by making observations and measurements in the present.
The Townsville Bulletin published on 2 March 2013 an item about the age of Castle Hill, the iconic landmark that overlooks the North Queensland city.
Evidence seems to be corresponding more to the latter.
Additionally, nothing can be accurately dated without historical, written record, to correlate, so all prehistory is complicated to date.
Dating techniques are procedures used by scientists to determine the age of an object or a series of events.
The two main types of dating methods are relative and absolute.
Determining the age of an artifact by the use of radioactive C14 is an exact and precise science so long as the sample tested is suitably prepared and analyzed.
Every C14 isotope existing in a living or dead organism and plant can be counted.
Yes, but for the most part those flaws are understood and considered at part of the radiometric dating process. What's more, scientists keep coming up with more accurate methods of radiometric dating.
Yes, but the question is whether the means of interpreting the data today is flawed, or if the entire concept is fundamentally illogical.
In the case of the Shroud we are dealing with the linen fibers out of which the fabric is woven.
