Science dating

The "type" of rock is not sufficient to establish the samples being cogenetic.Since the stratigraphic evidence indicates that the flows did not all occur at the same time, the case could only be made by other isotopic analysis such as taking internal isochrons of the individual flows.There are a number of lava flows on the plateau that the canyon is cut into (yellow in Figure 1, above).These lava flows are Cenozoic in age, and some of them spill into the canyon.As discussed above, whole-rock samples of multiple flows yields the time since their common source was isotopically homogeneous.It also be the age of the flows, but it does not have to be.Since I couldn't get permission to reproduce the claims verbatim, I will summarize the creationist claims, and respond to them here.I would recommend that future prospective critics attempt to deal directly and explicitly with the three items in the "criticisms" section above.

Dubai's Road Transport Authority (RTA) unveiled the Hyperloop pod design (top left and right) at a ceremony held the city as part of its participation in the UAE's Innovation Month.

An angular unconformity is the result of tilting and eroding of the lower layers before the upper ones are deposited.

These tilted and eroded layers are Precambrian in age (blue in Figure 1, above).

The ICR's Grand Canyon Dating Project does not strike a telling blow against the reliability of isochron dating.

The conditions which caused the "false isochron" in this case are fairly well-understood, and easy to avoid by proper sample selection.

But the Cardenas Basalt cannot be younger than the plateau flows, due to the geological relationships discussed in the first section of this document.
