Young earth radiometric dating

To derive ages from such measurements, unprovable assumptions have to be made such as: There is plenty of evidence that the radioisotope dating systems are not the infallible techniques many think, and that they are not measuring millions of years. For example, deeper rocks often tend to give older “ages.” Creationists agree that the deeper rocks are generally older, but not by millions of years.Geologist John Woodmorappe, in his devastating critique of radioactive dating,[8] points out that there are other large-scale trends in the rocks that have nothing to do with radioactive decay.Familiar to us as the black substance in charred wood, as diamonds, and the graphite in “lead” pencils, carbon comes in several forms, or isotopes.One rare form has atoms that are 14 times as heavy as hydrogen atoms: carbon-14, or C ratio gets smaller.

A stronger magnetic field deflects more cosmic rays away from the Earth.

That is, they take up less than would be expected and so they test older than they really are.

Furthermore, different types of plants discriminate differently.

Overall, the energy of the Earth's magnetic field has been decreasing,[5] so more C is being produced now than in the past.

This will make old things look older than they really are.
