Observation: succession of fossils

Relative courting is used to rearrange geological occasions, and the rocks they go away behind, in a sequence. The technique of studying the order is called stratigraphy (layers of rock are referred to as strata). For instance, primarily based on the primate fossil report, scientists know that residing primates advanced from fossil primates and that this evolutionary history took tens of hundreds of thousands of years. By evaluating fossils of various primate species, scientists can look at how features changed and the way primates evolved through time. However, the age of each fossil primate must be decided so that fossils of the identical age found in several parts of the world and fossils of different ages may be in contrast. Some young-earth creationists have also claimed that scientists cannot know with any certainty what happened tens of millions of years ago — one would need a “time machine” for this.

Radiometric dating and certain different approaches are used to provide absolute chronologies by method of years before the current. The two approaches are often complementary, as when a sequence of occurrences in a single context can be correlated with an absolute chronology elsewhere. For instance, if the measured abundance of 14C and 14N in a bone are equal, one half-life has passed and the bone is 5,730 years outdated (an amount equal to the half-life of 14C). If there’s thrice much less 14C than 14N within the bone, two half lives have passed and the pattern is 11,460 years outdated. However, if the bone is 70,000 years or older the amount of 14C left in the bone might be too small to measure accurately.
