How is radioactive dating carried out on meteorites and rocks

Argon gas, brought up from deep inside the earth within the molten rock, was already present in the lavas when they cooled.We know the true ages of the rocks because they were observed to form less than 50 years ago.However, it is well-known that if a radiometric “date” contradicts a fossil-derived (evolutionary) age, the date is discarded as erroneous.

Cannon-like, highly explosive eruptions in January and March 1974 threw out large quantities of ash as a column into the atmosphere, and as avalanches flowing down the cone’s sides.He has told us when that was, in His eyewitness account in the Bible’s first book, Genesis, so we know how old all the rocks are.
