Radiometric dating made easy

Wouldn't radiometric dating be best described as a myth that just gives ordinary people some reason to believe scientists when they say how old something is?

Just something to think about, and i may not know all the in's and out's of the process so please inform me if you do.

The only possible date you can get from that stone would be the date that the radioactive element that is being tested for was created (aka the beginning of the universe when all elements were created).

Rocks are dated from when they solidify (using other elements): the products of radioactive decay then begin to accumulate within the crystal structure. --Robert Stevens (talk) , 11 December 2007 (UTC) It is interesting to note, that by the method of Carbon 14 dating, the oldest known organic substance, coal, cannot be dated older that about 45,000 years. For years scientists have been looking for a sample of Coal with "zero" C14 to use as instrument calibration.Unable to find even one such sample, they have given up.C14 dating has shown not that organic material is older than 50,000 years, but rather that there is not one example of any organic material found on earth that is older than about 45,000 years.How hard is it to create uranium by fusion (fusing over 200 protons, the sun only compresses two).So thinking of this how can it work it just doesn't make sense.

I didn't ever say that i was an expert just some things about it just don't seem to make sense. "Stone arrowheads" can not be dated radiometrically.
