Eternity is at stake for every human being and reminding others of this is one of the most compassionate things a believer can do. The RATE team has used this anomaly to advance an alternative theory. Age is the concept of the amount of time an object has existed. Do analyses of the radioactive isotopes of rocks give reliable estimates of their ages? Basically, the Bible proves that the Bible is correct, regardless of the science employed.
Jueneman describes a highly speculative hypothesis that would account for radioactive decay by interaction with neutrinos rather than by spontaneous decay, and he notes that an event that temporarily increased the neutrino flux might "reset" the clocks.
But how does one know that the magnetic field has fluctuated and reversed polarity? Believe it or not, a number of creationist attacks against radiometric decay rates are aimed at a kind of "decay" called internal conversion ICwhich has absolutely nothing to do with the radiometric dating methods Dalrymple,p. Willard Libby, the Nobel Prize winner who invented the 14 C method, assumed an equilibrium condition between the production of 14 C and its disintegration. US December 8th, Perhaps dust always accumulates at the same rate it does today. On January 11, Google celebrated the th birthday of Nicolaus Steno by featuring a colorful doodle of rock layers on its homepage. In radiometric dating, the measured ratio of certain radioactive elements is used as a proxy for age.
