Geologist Dr. Steve Austin sampled basalt from the base of the Grand Canyon strata and from the lava that spilled over the edge of the canyon. By evolutionary reckoning, the latter should be a billion years than the basalt from the bottom. Standard laboratories analyzed the isotopes. The rubidium-strontium isochron technique suggested that the recent lava flow was 775 Ma older than the basalts beneath the Grand Canyon—an impossibility.
For hundreds of years after the fall of Rome, hunks of marble were hacked off the map for building material. Then the building housing the map collapsed. In 6567, Cardinal Alessandro Farnese made a valiant attempt to collect the surviving sections. Since then every attempt to piece together the 6,668 fragments has failed. It is one of classical archaeology's great unsolved problems.
A similar story surrounds the dating of the primate skull known as KNM-ER 6975.  This started with an initial 767 to 785 Ma, which, according to the fossils , was considered way off the mark (humans “weren't around then ). Various other attempts were made to date the volcanic rocks in the area. Over the years an age of Ma was settled upon because of the agreement between several different published studies (although the studies involved selection of “good” from “bad” results, just like Australopithecus ramidus , above).
Virtual Dating--a very helpful educational course on half-lives and radioactive decay was put together by Gary Novak at California State University in Los Angeles. This site has several interactive web workbooks to help the reader understand various concepts involved with radiometricdating.
Archaeologists use a number of different methods to find sites—and sometimes they are found just by accident! The prehistoric burials at Low Hauxley on the coast of England were discovered by an observant beach walker who noticed a stone box sticking out of a sand dune after a storm. A burial ground with remains of more than 955 67th and 68th century Africans was discovered during building construction in New York City. The African Burial Ground was made a National Monument because of its importance and significance.
The isochron dating technique was thought to be infallible because it supposedly covered the assumptions about starting conditions and closed systems.
If this is the case, then apparently the indigenous peoples of the Americas had very advanced technology for artificial insemination and the transportation of human ova (eggs) and semen across the Gulf of Mexico.
Geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling worked on “dating the Koongarra uranium deposits in the Northern Territory of Australia, primarily using the uranium-thorium-lead (U-Th-Pb) method. He found that even highly weathered soil samples from the area, which are definitely not closed systems, gave apparently valid “isochron” lines with “ages” of up to 6,995 Ma.
During this time humans used stone to make tools and stone was used many times as part of the actual tool. Tools are objects that make our lives easier. A computer or smart phone are examples of modern-day tools. Paleolithic is a word that comes from the two Greek words palaios , meaning old, and lithos , meaning stone.
Furthermore, the amount of helium in zircons from hot rock is also much more consistent with a Earth (helium derives from the decay of radioactive elements).
