Radiocarbon dating is false

For example, a geologist may examine a cutting where the rocks appear as shown in Figure 1.Here he can see that some curved sedimentary rocks have been cut vertically by a sheet of volcanic rock called a dyke.Let us imagine that the date reported by the lab was 150.7 ± 2.8 million years.

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

It is clear that the sedimentary rock was deposited and folded before the dyke was squeezed into place.

By looking at other outcrops in the area, our geologist is able to draw a geological map which records how the rocks are related to each other in the field.

He would say that the date represents the time when the volcanic lava solidified.

Such an interpretation fits nicely into the range of what he already believes the age to be.
