Radioactive dating fossils isotopes used
Most scientists and many Christians believe that the radiometric dating methods prove that the earth is 4.5 billion years old.The textbooks speak of the radiometric dating techniques, and the dates themselves, as factual information.
For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.
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.
There's a small amount of radioactive carbon-14 in all living organisms.
When they die no new carbon-14 is taken in by the dead organism.
