Recent research by a team of creation scientists known as the RATE (arth) group has demonstrated the unreliability of radiometric dating techniques.Even the use of isochron dating, which is supposed to eliminate some initial condition assumptions, produces dates that are not reliable.If any of these three conditions is not accurately known, the hourglass will give an inaccurate measure of time.
The time it takes for one half of the parent atoms to decay to the daughter atoms is called the half-life.
There is also a difference in the timescale used to explain the layers.
Determining the relative age of a rock layer is based on the assumption that you know the ages of the rocks surrounding it.
There are three main assumptions that must be made to accept radiometric dating methods.
These must be accepted on faith in uniformitarian and naturalistic frameworks.Knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?
