Radiometric dating and creation science Xxxnx images
Most people accept the current old-earth (OE) age estimate of around 4.6 billion years.This age is obtained from radiometric dating and is assumed by evolutionists to provide a sufficiently long time-frame for Darwinian evolution.This is the third in a series of articles about a young-Earth creationism (YEC) conference held in Bozeman, Montana in April, 2016. Bozeman creation conference preview and expectations 2. – Yes Genesis does matter, whether a Christian believes in a young Earth or an old Earth. This article – What you haven’t been told about radioisotope dating 4.Coming in the future – Ice ages, seafloor sediments, dinosaur bones, and more.
Geologists have known for a long time that the isotope geochemistry of Earth is complex, and that radiometric dating does not always return what is considered to be a geologically-valid result, but there is no reason for old-Earth Christians to be intimidated by discrepant dates.
We are told that of all the radiometric dates that are measured, only a few percent are anomalous.
This gives us the impression that all but a small percentage of the dates computed by radiometric methods agree with the assumed ages of the rocks in which they are found, and that all of these various methods almost always give ages that agree with each other to within a few percentage points.
In reply to the first point, which the Young Earth creationist claims that the decay rate isn't a constant, he claims that...
This is tantamount to claiming that the gravity of the Earth might have been 5 times stronger in medieval times, or that the boiling point of water might have been a thousand degrees a century ago.
