Accuracy in carbon 14 dating


Optical dating, also known as optically stimulated luminescence (OSL), dates the last time mineral sediments (usually quartz or feldspar grains ) were exposed to sunlight.In the Willandra area it is typically used on quartz sand grains which have been buried and have not been exposed to sunlight since burial.



Bales Opening Statement In this argument, I'll stick to the evidence which indicates the earth has a young age.This technique can determine ages between a few hundred years to more than 100,000 years.It has been used at Willandra to date the layers above and below the location of Mungo Lady and Mungo Man , and the layers above and below the footprints horizon.Any young-earth theory must also explain evidence that seems to indicate that the earth is millions of years old.
