The noble gases are the six elements in Group 18 (VIIIA) of the periodic table.
The periodic table is a chart that shows how the chemical elements are related to each other.
In a separate article (Radiometric dating), we sketched in some technical detail how these dates are calculated using radiometric dating techniques.
As we pointed out in these two articles, radiometric dates are based on known rates of radioactivity, a phenomenon that is rooted in fundamental laws of physics and follows simple mathematical formulas.
For over a hundred years, evolutionists have insisted that the earth is billions of years old, and have arrogantly dismissed any views contrary to this belief. Nuclear Decay: Evidence For A Young World (#352) by Russell Humphreys, Ph. Potassium-Argon and Argon-Argon Dating of Crystal Rocks and the Problem of Excess Argon (#309) by Andrew A. Not Billions is the ultimate multimedia resource for any family, student or teacher's library.Scientists now have accurate methods (see below ) for dating fossils.methods rely on characteristic faunal and geological patterns to bracket the period when the fossil existed.Technical details on how these dates are calculated are given in Radiometric dating. As with any experimental procedure in any field of science, these measurements are subject to certain "glitches" and "anomalies," as noted in the literature.Here is one example of an isochron, based on measurements of basaltic meteorites (in this case the resulting date is 4.4 billion years) [Basaltic1981, pg. Skeptics of old-earth geology make great hay of these examples.For example, creationist writer Henry Morris [Morris2000, pg.
