Mount st helens carbon dating
There has been considerable progress, but important questions remain unanswered. Was the 1980 eruption triggered by an injection of magma into an upper crustal reservoir? How did magma rise into the edifice without producing detectable seismicity deeper than ∼2.5 km or measurable surface deformation beyond the volcano’s north flank? If reservoir pressurization and magma ascent were slow enough, resulting strain might have been accommodated by viscoelastic deformation, without appreciable seismicity or surface deformation, until rising magma entered a brittle regime within 2–2.5 km of the surface. Of fundamental importance to the understanding of active magmatic systems and to assessments of volcano hazards is the process of magma accumulation in crustal reservoirs. Given the remarkably gas-poor nature of the 2004–2008 dome lava, future eruptive activity might require a relatively long period of quiescence and reservoir pressurization or a large injection of fresh magma—an event that arguably has not occurred since the Kalama eruptive period (C. Indicators can include anomalous seismicity, ground deformation, changes in flux or composition of aqueous or gas emissions, and residual gravity changes (Tilling, 2008). For example, an age of 0.5 ± 1 million years is not considered either accurate or terribly useful, even though it is correct. First, it's still relevant to the debate because secular scientists still resort to these same arguments whenever their tests fail to accurately date rocks of known ages.
It does not mean that any arbitrarily old age will result.By your own admission, accurate dates cannot be given for samples under 2 million years old.2) If the world truly was created only 6,000 years ago, you must acknowledge your dating methods would be WORTHLESS in trying to establish that.Furthermore, many geochronology laboratories do not have the expensive state-of-the-art equipment to accurately measure argon in samples that are only a few million years old." This is a real problem for evolutionists.1) If a rock of unknown date tests to be 3 million years old, how can we be sure it's not only 50,000 years old?
