Fossils are usually dated by the layer they are found in (Biostratigraphy), and the layer is dated by the index fossil they contain.This is known as the logical fallacy of begging the question (or circular reasoning) because the age of the layer/fossil is assumed before it is dated.

William Smith lived from 1769-1839 and was a Drainage Engineer and on the side a Surveyor and Geologist.

He was the first to use fossils to date the rock layers.

Then we can calculate how long those books have been sitting there.

What if one book was sitting there for 2 years, and 6 months ago someone came in and dusted it off and put another book right next to it?

The dating method would give us the incorrect date. You can measure the current length and at what rate it burns, but you still don't know how long the candle was when it started burning, or even if it was always burning at the same rate.

The following things have to be assumed for radiometric dating to work (Evolution Handbook): - Contrary to popular belief, radiometric dating is not often used to date fossils.

Later Darwin came along and gave those ages more exact numbers (based off of no evidence).

This is the basis of the entire geological column we have today.

Charles Lyell lived from 1797-1875 and was a Lawyer and Geologist who made the greatest impact on Darwin by his book Principals of Geology.
