For example, Christian time counts the birth of Christ as the beginning, AD 1 (Anno Domini); everything that occurred before Christ is counted backwards from AD as BC (Before Christ).
The Greeks consider the first Olympic Games as the beginning or 776 BC.
Geological processes have helped to create many iconic features on Earth.
Processes, such as plate tectonics, are what shapes the face of the Earth.
This assumption is backed by numerous scientific studies and is relatively sound.
However, conditions may have been different in the past and could have influenced the rate of decay or formation of radioactive elements.
With our focus on one particular form of radiometric dating—carbon dating—we will see that carbon dating strongly supports a young earth.
Note that, contrary to a popular misconception, carbon dating is not used to date rocks at millions of years old.
Although relative dating can work well in certain areas, several problems arise.
Scientists use a technique called radiometric dating to estimate the ages of rocks, fossils, and the earth.
Here you can discover the power of geological processes.
When it comes to dating archaeological samples, several timescale problems arise.
However, none of the criticisms of young earth creationists have any scientific merit.
