Besides using index fossils, superposition, and relative dating, scientists also use a more precise method called absolute dating, to date rocks absolute dating uses the radioactive decay of radioactive isotopes of minerals in rocks to determine the age of the rock. Secular fossil dating procedures involve complicated loops of circular reasoning this fossil mosquito with partly decayed blood proteins in its abdomen is not 46 million years old—decay tests clearly indicate this is astronomically unlikely.
Instead, other methods are used to work out a fossil’s age these include radiometric dating of volcanic layers above or below the fossils or by comparisons to similar rocks and fossils of known ages.

Potassium-argon dating, argon-argon dating, carbon-14 (or radiocarbon), and uranium series all of these methods measure the amount of radioactive decay of chemical elements the decay occurs in a consistent manner, like a clock, over long periods of time. Fossil collecting (sometimes, in a non-scientific sense, fossil hunting) is the collection of fossils for scientific study, hobby, or profit fossil collecting, as practiced by amateurs, is the predecessor of modern paleontology and many still collect fossils and study fossils as amateurs. Radiometric dating until the middle of the last century, older or younger was the best scientists could do when assigning ages to fossils there was no way to calculate an absolute age (in years) for any fossil or rock layer. Radiometric dating or radioactive dating is a technique used to date materials such as rocks or carbon, in which trace radioactive impurities were selectively incorporated when they were formed.

A fossil normally preserves only a portion of an organism, usually that portion that was partially mineralized during life, such as bones and teeth trace fossils are the marks left by a living organism, such as feces, footprints or impressions of feathers or leaves. Fossil (latin for obtained by digging) is the preserved remains or traces of organisms (plants, animals, etc) that lived in the distant pastthe convention is that a fossil must predate recorded human history while there is no defined date, typically something must be older than 10,000 years to be considered a fossil.
