In the same way, by identifying fossils, he may have related Sedimentary Rocks B with some other rocks.Creationists would generally agree with the above methods and use them in their geological work.The field relationships are generally broad, and a wide range of ‘dates’ can be interpreted as the time when the lava solidified.What would our geologist have thought if the date from the lab had been greater than 200 million years, say 350.5 ± 4.3 million years?In fact, he would have been equally happy with any date a bit less than 200 million years or a bit more than 30 million years.
His geological cross-section may look something like Figure 2.’ In fact, there is a whole range of standard explanations that geologists use to ‘interpret’ radiometric dating results.Someone may ask, ‘Why do geologists still use radiometric dating?Would he have concluded that the fossil date for the sediments was wrong? Would he have thought that the radiometric dating method was flawed? Instead of questioning the method, he would say that the radiometric date was not recording the time that the rock solidified.He may suggest that the rock contained crystals (called xenocrysts) that formed long before the rock solidified and that these crystals gave an older date.
