Paleoanthropologists and archaeologists must always be aware of possible radiocarbon sample contamination that could result in inaccurate dates.
Absolute dating determines the age of artifacts in terms of the number of years before the present, with reference to a fixed time scale.
The main approaches to cross dating include annual cycle methods, radioactive clocks, and trapped electron material. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him.
Absolute dating uses annual cycles as well such as calendrical-historic record, varves (seasonal lake deposits), and Dendrochronology, which is the measurement of variations in the growth and patterns of thick and thin rings of trees. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible.
This dating method can be used with samples that are as young as a few decades to as old as the earth and beyond.
However, paleoanthropologists rarely use it to date sites more than several million years old.
