Radio carbon dating mt st helens
To be exact, even without any radiometric dates, stratigraphic, fossil, and/or paleomagnetic data usually give geologists at least a rough idea of the ages of their samples.As mentioned above, we already know that Austin's application of the K-Ar method to this dacite sample was flawed from the beginning.
Austin's conclusions on this project are summarized at the ICR website.
Obviously, this suggestion has absolutely no scientific support or merit.
Such ideas are flights of fantasy and not scientific hypotheses.
Not even Austin endorses these untestable claims in his essay.
Other YECs might argue that some of the minerals in the dacite began to grow sometime over the past 6,000 years.
