A common form of criticism is to cite geologically complicated situations where the application of radiometric dating is very challenging.These are often characterised as the norm, rather than the exception.When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour.
(Grammar) grammar denoting or belonging to a class of words that function as subordinating conjunctions in introducing relative clauses.
In English, relative pronouns and determiners include who, which, and that. of or designating a word that introduces a subordinate clause and refers to an expressed or implied element of the principal clause: the relative pronoun who in “That was the woman who called”; the relative adverb where Quotations"Every man sees in his relatives, and especially in his cousins, a series of grotesque caricatures of himself" [H. Mencken Prejudices]"When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second.
I thought it would be useful to present an example where the geology is simple, and unsurprisingly, the method does work well, to show the quality of data that would have to be invalidated before a major revision of the geologic time scale could be accepted by conventional scientists.
Geochronologists do not claim that radiometric dating is foolproof (no scientific method is), but it does work reliably for most samples.
It is these highly consistent and reliable samples, rather than the tricky ones, that have to be falsified for "young Earth" theories to have any scientific plausibility, not to mention the need to falsify huge amounts of evidence from other techniques.
