If one were to believe the Bible, the earth was surrounded by a layer of water vapor between Creation and the Flood. Carbon is the best known of all these methods. Prior to looking at the many flaws in the Carbon Dating Technique, it should be noted that no radiometric.
It simply does not work. We must know when the timer was started.
