The radiometric dating methods help to give evolution an appearance of legitimacy.
However, we can show - using testable-repeatable science - that they do not work!
Here are some ways to check: The pyramids of Egypt hold all kinds of organic (carbon-based) materials that are of known dates. For some of the ancient pyramids and tombs of three or four thousand years ago we know exactly what year they were sealed up. If Carbon-14 dating works shouldn't it verify the ages of these mummies, organs, wheat, and other items? But it doesn't. The radiometric dates usually vary wildly from the known dates.
Coal seams are made of carbon-based material, namely: coal! The evolutionists usually date them at (sic) "hundreds of millions of years" old. What they don't tell you is that Carbon-14 dating shows them to be only thousands of years old, i.e. the Carbon-14 gives dates! It shouldn't if the coal is really millions and millions of years old. Right? Think scientifically.
If we didn't know how old the Egyptian pyramids were and we relied on Carbon-14 instead, wouldn't we then be relying on bad data? And for the coal seams, evolutionists first believe in evolution. They don't care that their own dating methods show that pre-Flood coal is only thousands of years old. In these cases they ignore their own dating methods to believe their presuppositions ahead of the scientific evidence. So this shows evolutionists putting faith ahead of science, doesn't it?
And here is a separate article that may be helpful:
Regarding the K-Ar (Potassium-Argon) method, their highly vaunted dating shows the NEW 1980s lava dome on top of Mount St. Helens in Washington State to be over 1 million years old. http://www.creationism.org/english/msh_lavadome_en.htm It is only about 30 years old, but their radioactive dating methods "prove" that it is much older, right?
--> Evolution is not based on science, but on hiding from God no matter what. The evolutionists do not care that their radioactive dating methods do not work. As long as the public thinks that "evolution and the millions of years" has been proven, they can go about their business of peer review, i.e. peer pressure ... teaching (what are ultimately) doctrines of demons.
Creation though is supported by real science. The Planet Earth is only thousands of years old. See. Dr. Paul Ackerman's fine book, It's a Young World After All. http://www.creationism.org/books/ackerman/index.htm
