Radiometric dating and creation science
During the molten state it is assumed that the intense heat will force any gaseous daughter elements like argon to escape.
Therefore, there are several assumptions that must be made in radioisotope dating.Sedimentary rocks, which contain most of the world’s fossils, are not commonly used in radioisotope dating.These types of rocks are comprised of particles from many preexisting rocks which were transported (mostly by water) and redeposited somewhere else. Atomic mass is the heaviness of an atom when compared to hydrogen, which is assigned the value of one. In beta decay, either an electron is lost and a neutron is converted into a proton (beta minus decay) or an electron is added and a proton is converted into a neutron (beta plus decay).This apparent consistency in textbooks and the media has convinced many Christians to accept an old earth (4.6 billion years old).Radioisotope dating (also referred to as radiometric dating) is the process of estimating the age of rocks from the decay of their radioactive elements.
The implications of doing this are profound and affect many parts of the Bible.
