Relative dating earth layers

These assumptions are based on the axioms or worldview the scientist is operating within.This worldview is the basis for an entire system of theories.The result is that these dating methods only produce old ages for the Earth within the evolutionary theoretical system.Within the creation theoretical system, different assumptions are used, producing different results.In dating any object, geologists: When dating an object, a geologist measures some physical property of the object, which is believed to provide evidence regarding its age.All dating methods rely upon assumptions about the past.

By combining knowledge gained using both relative and absolute dating processes geologists have been able to produce the geologic time scale.The methods are all ultimately calibrated to relative dates of the geologic column, such that data that conflicts with a fossil's or rock's placement in the geologic column is explained away by the evolutionary theoretical system.For example, Carbon-14 would decay to nothing in well under 1 million years, so if Carbon-14 is found in a dinosaur fossil it is interpreted as resulting from contamination.With this in mind geologist have long known that the deeper a sedimentary rock layer is the older it is, but how old?Although there might be some mineral differences due to the difference in source rock, most sedimentary rock deposited year after year look very similar to one another.
