Creation science is one theoretical system and evolution is another.Thus even when creationists and evolutionists use the same dating methods, they will more often than not achieve radically different results.This problem is made worse because other types of crystal defects can easily be counted as fission tracks.
This technique has posed a different problem for creationists, as this dating method does not make use directly of accelerated decay.
By using dendrochronology scientists have dated certain living trees to having ages of around 4600 years.
U has a known rate, and as such the number of tracks is theoretically related to the age of the sample.
Because fission-track dating requires a manual count of the fission tracks, the process is more prone to human error and bias than other radiometric dating methods.
The result is that the geologic column is the ultimate filter for other dating methods.
