Carbon 14 is useful for dating fossils that are
The discovery of means for absolute dating in the early 1900s was a huge advance.
Our understanding of the shape and pattern of the history of life depends on the accuracy of fossils and dating methods.
Paleontologists now apply sophisticated mathematical techniques to assess the relative quality of particular fossil successions, as well as the entire fossil record.
These demonstrate that, of course, we do not know everything (and clearly never will), but we know enough.
