The radioisotope methods—long touted as irrefutably dating the earth as countless millions of years old—have repeatedly failed to give reliable and meaningful absolute ages for Grand Canyon rocks.
In the walls of the Grand Canyon, we can see that the whole horizontal sedimentary strata sequence was folded without fracturing.
Correlation can involve matching an undated rock with a dated one at another location.
Relative dating is used to arrange geological events, and the rocks they leave behind, in a sequence.These provide us with an abundance of resources, which we use to worship and serve Him for His purposes and glory.Radiometric dating measures the decay of radioactive atoms to determine the age of a rock sample.For example, microscopic dinoflagellates have been studied and dated in great detail around the world.Correlation with them has helped geologists date many New Zealand rocks, including those containing dinosaurs.
So if we are then faced with a rock the date of which we do not know, then we do know (of course) the latitude and longitude at which we found it, and we can measure the orientation of its magnetism, and so we can look at the global picture we've built up of continental drift, and to figure out when the rock must have formed in order to have its magnetism oriented in just that direction.
