More-Precise Dates Provide More-Detailed Picture

TNRTB Archive - Retain for reference information

Recent advances in dating technology have given earth scientists a much-more-detailed picture of Earth’s history—one that can be used to confirm the details of RTB’s cosmic creation model. Scientists continue to develop techniques to date events that occurred hundreds of million years ago within a precision of a hundred thousand years—a remarkable achievement; current precision yields dates with error bars as large as a few million years. The resulting detailed timeline will prove a powerful tool in testing the validity of RTB’s cosmic creation model, which works to correlate the creation events from Scripture with the cosmic and geological record.
