But there are a few perplexing results for the creationist to think through.
After a preface by John Morris, chapter 1 is an introduction by Larry Vardiman giving the history of the RATE project, the key research results, and the significance of the project.
Though they are very tiny, polonium radiohalos have a huge message that cannot be ignored.
They point to a catastrophic origin for granites, consistent with the biblical timeframe for earth history and God’s judgment during the Flood.
He argued that overall peer review is needed and quite beneficial to the creationist movement, but there are shortcomings, as most all creationist and secular scientists realize.
There are many assumptions behind radiometric dating, but there are three main ones.
The RATE team subsequently found out, by subcontracting the diffusion experiment to a secular scientist critical of creationists, that the diffusion of helium through biotite is insignificant compared to diffusion out of the zircon crystals.So, the main variable is the zircons underwent 1.5 Ga of radioactive decay—assuming current rates!There is way too much helium in the zircons for the alleged age.After all, textbooks, media, and museums glibly present ages of millions of years as fact.Yet few people know how radiometric dating works or bother to ask what assumptions drive the conclusions. This figure wasn’t established by radiometric dating of the earth itself. Radiohalos shouldn’t exist, according to conventional wisdom!
Biblical creationists have long realized that the millions and billions of years resulting from radiometric dating was one of our major challenges.
