Radioactive isotope used for age dating
This is what your readout said, so your fossil has undergone two half-lives.Now that you know how many half-lives have passed for your fossil, you need to multiply your number of half-lives by how many years are in one half-life. Your fossil is of an organism (maybe human) that died 11,460 years ago.
Recent research by a team of creation scientists known as the RATE (arth) group has demonstrated the unreliability of radiometric dating techniques.
The textbooks speak of the radiometric dating techniques, and the dates themselves, as factual information.
Far from being data, these dates are actually interpretations of the data.
Perhaps the most widely used evidence for the Theory of Evolution through Natural Selection is the fossil record.
The fossil record may be incomplete and may never fully completed, but there are still many clues to evolution and how it happens within the fossil record.
