The problem with dating
The isotopic make-up of original material is important, as is mixing of magma with surrounding material.The conditions of formation are also important, because both the cooling rate and the opportunities for mixing affect isotope ratios.The bottom line is that if you realize that everything is fine and there is no “problem” here, it will be a helpful energy for him to be around. You don’t need to talk about it, you don’t need to help with it, you don’t need to reassure him… This is particularly important in light of the Biblical flood.How a rock is formed is important to understanding its isotopic make-up and any dates derived.I’ve been dating someone for a couple months now and, like a lot of people, he is experiencing financial difficulties.He just recently began sharing these financial problems with me and I know it’s the reason why he’s been asking me out less than when we first started dating.
I’m not saying that guys should be cheap, but you and I both know that the amount of money a guy spends on a date isn’t going to change how you feel about him in your heart.
I’m not a very experienced dater so I’m unsure as to how to deal with this situation.
I like this man very much, I enjoy his company and he is incredibly kind.
To date rocks or other objects, scientists typically use radiometric dating.
In short, the ratio of radioactive and stable isotopes in the sample are determined and the measured rate at which the isotopes decay is used as an indicator of the age of the sample.
