Creationist arguments against radiometric dating
There is also an exhaustive study of this subject called the (Radioisotopes and the Age of the Earth) Group, a team of six scientists who are investigating the subject in depth, and have published the first of several studies. Carbon-14 dating has limited value for evolution because its half-life is too short.

That is, you can see if the sample comes from rocks that have been disturbed (or contaminated) or not just by looking at the results.Now, creationists will claim that scientists are just somehow assuming that if samples show an age that does not fit their preconceptions, the sample must be contaminated or leaky. To see why, we need to look deeper into radiometric dating methods.Those that did the decaying are called parent nuclei.If you have a rock that contains radioactive isotopes, these will decay over time.
