By then, the relative ages (order) of the geologic column had already been worked out in some detail.Radiometric dating would later confirm the relative ages of the strata and tie them to absolute dates.Why should the percentage of lead to uranium in zircon crystals (the key to ordinary uranium-lead, radiometric dating) depend on which geologic period they are found in?If most of the geologic column were created during Noah's flood, would it really matter whether a zircon crystal was found in Cambrian strata or Cretaceous strata, in Jurassic strata or Tertiary strata?Noah's flood might just as easily deposit the same crystal in one place as another. Pressure has nothing to do with it, and zircon crystals all have about the same density as their total lead content is small.Just what is it that a Cambrian stratum has which a Cretaceous stratum lacks?One would think that the flood sediments (gathered from the four corners of the old antediluvian world) and their associated igneous rock (formed during the flood) would all register very little radiometric age.At the very least we would expect random fluctuations if the radiometric methods were totally at sea.
This poses a fatal problem whether one believes in the accuracy of radiometric dating or not!You can help Amazing Discoveries reduce costs by upgrading or replacing your internet browser with one of the options below.We thank you in advance for partnering with us in this small but significant way.By 1830 Lyell's famous textbook, Principles of Geology, came out. Such was the age of the great creationist geologists!The principle of faunal succession in the geologic record was established by direct observation as early as 1799 by William Smith.
