They start with their conclusion — that God created the Earth in six days — and then look for the proof. Collagen is a protein found exclusively in animals. Again, as a rock ages and 40Ar accumulates in both the glass and any 40K-bearing minerals, the differences in the ages of the materials becomes less significant. Results 1 to 4 of 4. Helens dates very much older than its true age because phenocryst minerals inherit argon from the magma. Wikimedia Today we're going to point our skeptical eye at one of the key players in the debate between geologists and Young Earthers over the age of the Earth. These rocks were dated using the same method in the lab and were assigned an age of 1.
Scientists have acknowledged that the C dating methods are unreliable for material which is more than 80, years old, as you have said, so why would the results of such dating be significant?
How Old Is the Mount St. Helens Lava Dome?
All times are GMT But recently, the RATE research team has conclusively demonstrated with independent lines of evidence that radioactive decay rates, widely used to bolster deep time, were dramatically accelerated in the past. Wryly suffering the slings and arrows Lloyd and Doris Anderson do not blink at such criticism. So I thought this would be a great place to point Skeptoid's skeptical eye, and see how much of the chaff we can cut through to see what the bare facts of the case really are. Obviously, it's Austin's improper use of the K-Ar method and not the method itself that is flawed. Again, varves are horizontal bedding structures such as at lake bottoms or deep marine environments. Austin's conclusions on this project are summarized at the ICR website.
