Beryllium dating method
Further evidence comes from the complete agreement between radiometric dates and other dating methods such as counting tree rings or glacier ice core layers.Many Christians have been led to distrust radiometric dating and are completely unaware of the great number of laboratory measurements that have shown these methods to be consistent.
Many people have been led to be skeptical of dating without knowing much about it. In spite of this, differences still occur within the church.
There are over forty such techniques, each using a different radioactive element or a different way of measuring them.
It has become increasingly clear that these radiometric dating techniques agree with each other and as a whole, present a coherent picture in which the Earth was created a very long time ago.
Many Christians accept this and interpret the Genesis account in less scientifically literal ways.
However, some Christians suggest that the geologic dating techniques are unreliable, that they are wrongly interpreted, or that they are confusing at best.
