Ultimately these "creation scientists" were forced to admit that even for methods they accepted as sound, the age of the Earth would be vastly greater than the 6,000 they set out to prove.

They tie themselves in logical knots trying to reconcile the results of radiometric dating with the unwavering belief that the Earth was created ex nihilo about 6,000 to 10,000 years ago.

Indeed, special creationists have for many years held that where science and their religion conflict, it is a matter of science having to catch up with scripture, not the other way around.

Radiometric dating — through processes similar to those outlined in the example problem above — frequently reveals that rocks, fossils, etc.

are very much older than the approximately 6,000 to 10,000 years reckoned by young earth creationists.This is consistent with the assumption that each decay event is independent and its chance does not vary over time.where is the half-life of the element, is the time expired since the sample contained the initial number atoms of the nuclide, and is the remaining amount of the nuclide.Carbon-14 decays almost completely within 100,000 years of the organism dying, and many fossils and rock strata are hundreds of times older than that.To date older fossils, other methods are used, such as potassium-argon or argon-argon dating.We can measure directly, for example by using a radiation detector, and obtain a good estimate of by analyzing the chemical composition of the sample.
