No doubt. Science is evolving itself, new technologies and techniques are being developed, I'm not debating that.<quoted text>
I think you are missing the point. Science has always claimed a certain level of accuracy, not that the dating claims are absolutely accurate. We are always improving and refining the dating techniques which improve their accuracy. What this is isn't an admission that Creationists were right, but an example of how science works.
No, but my point still remains, I find it quite humoress.
I never stated that it was a stark admission from scientists that dating is completely wrong, I just find it amusing on so many other forums when dating is bought up, its the evolutionists that has statements like "dating techniques are completely accurate you young earth creationist freak!" etc.
A scientist improves dating techniques and shows that the so-called 'Cambrian Explosion' may have taken even longer than previous techniques have shown. This is science in action. Creationists don't just claim innaccuracy, they want all dating technique thrown out unless they support their own pre-determined dates, especially Young Earth Creationists.
There is a wide difference between claiming that the degree of error in a date just went from +/- 50 million years to +/- 10 million years and claiming that anything over 6,000 years is obviously bogus because it doesn't agree with the literal reading of the Bible. I've bene to the Creation Museum and it's little story of "We just come to a different conclusion based on the same data" is pure BS.
I agree and see it all too often with dating, the whole argument about empirical evidence etc.
BTW I wasn't aware that all creationists where young earthers?
They toss anything they cannot twist to their own ends and try and justify it with comments like yours. "Oh even science admits how innaccurate dating techniques are, so God must be right!"[/quote]
I wasn't aware I made that comment?
My suggestion is that you wander back through the histroy of radiological and other forms of dating and you will see a continuous improvement as the dating techniques get more and more accurate. This is done by scientists not Creationists who like to make unsupported claims.
So many life forms appeared during this time that it is often referred to as the "Cambrian Explosion." Geologists at UC Santa Barbara and a team of co-authors have proposed a rethinking of the timeline of these early animal appearances.
