Geology, Isotope Dating and the Flood, Pt 3
In the last two months in our yearlong study of geology and the Flood, we have concentrated on radioisotope dating. We have seen that the presence of fast decaying radioactive carbon C-14 in all parts of the fossil bearing rock layers of the geologic column has been thoroughly documented in the scientific literature. Some presume this is a result of contamination although no one can present a viable contamination mechanism. Since C-14 decays completely away in less than a hundred thousand years we must conclude that the fossil bearing rock layers are less than a hundred thousand years old.
Last month Dr. Andrew Snelling’s lecture examined the slow decaying isotopes like uranium with half-lives on the order of a billion years. These isotopes are the ones used to “prove” that rock layers with fossils go back 540 million years and the age of the Earth is about 4.7 billion years. We also saw that different isotopes in the same rock commonly produce very different ages. We also so saw that there are at least three error sources that fool even the most sophisticated isochrone dating methods.
However, this presents a mystery: how can there be an abundance of both fast decaying and slow decaying isotopes in the same rocks, indeed all of the rock layers bearing fossils. Join us for the adventure of solving this mystery. You will be amazed how well this solution confirms our hypothesis of a young supernatural creation as described in the first chapters of Genesis.
