Types of igneous rocks include granite and basalt (lava).

Sedimentary rocks, which contain most of the world’s fossils, are not commonly used in radioisotope dating.

false radiometric dating assumptions-85

The decay of The radioisotope dating clock starts when a rock cools.

During the molten state it is assumed that the intense heat will force any gaseous daughter elements like argon to escape.

There appears to be a fundamental conflict between the Bible and the reported ages given by radioisotope dating.

Since God is the Creator of all things (including science), and His Word is true (“), the true age of the earth must agree with His Word.

If scientists fail to consider each of these three critical assumptions, then radioisotope dating can give incorrect ages.

We know that radioisotope dating does not always work because we can test it on rocks of known age.

However, rather than accept the biblical account of creation, many Christians have accepted the radioisotope dates of billions of years and attempted to fit long ages into the Bible.

The implications of doing this are profound and affect many parts of the Bible.

If we walk into a room and observe an hourglass with sand at the top and sand at the bottom, we could calculate how long the hourglass has been running.
