The Carbon-14 age estimating method is, at best, only useful for estimating the age of things that are thousands of years old, not millions or billions.And it does not work on rocks or thoroughly mineralized fossils; it is only useful for relatively well-preserved organic materials such as cloth, wood, and other non-fossilized materials.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.Here he can see that some curved sedimentary rocks have been cut vertically by a sheet of volcanic rock called a dyke.It is clear that the sedimentary rock was deposited and folded before the dyke was squeezed into place. Do NOT reproduce them or use them on other Web sites. The lowest age defended on a scientific basis is in the 6 to 10 thousand year range.
