Radioactive dating of rocks

These were then eroded and Sedimentary Rocks B were deposited.

These samples are carefully cataloged and analyzed with a mass spectrometer.Creationists would generally agree with the above methods and use them in their geological work.From his research, our evolutionary geologist may have discovered that other geologists believe that Sedimentary Rocks A are 200 million years old and Sedimentary Rocks B are 30 million years old.On his return, he sends his sample to the laboratory for dating, and after a few weeks receives the lab report.Let us imagine that the date reported by the lab was 150.7 ± 2.8 million years.
