Radiometric dating and christianity
So aircraft designers and pilots can predict, given a certain set of circumstances precisely how much runway a plane will need to take off , and land; how much fuel will be burned, etc. Given the same conditions, the aircraft doesn’t need 2,000 feet of runway to take off one day, and 500 feet to take off the next day, and 3,000 feet another day.
As a licensed pilot and certified flight instructor, I’ve bet my life, and the life of my students and passengers that I know exactly how a given plane will perform under given circumstances: how much runway it will take to take off, fly a specified distance and land at another airport. What inputs it takes to recover from a stall (that’s not a reference to the engine by the way) and spins. Anyone who has flown in a plane is betting the science of flight is a “hard science” with consistent predictable results.
The discrepancies between the rejected and accepted data are arbitrarily attributed to excess or loss of argon. “Rejected and accepted data”? In other words scientists are saying they themselves will not accept some data from radiometric dating because they believe it to be wrong. You would expect your weight would be the same regardless of the method the device used to quantify your weight.
Additionally they know that different methods of dating are providing different ages. So within a narrow tolerance of a few ounces or perhaps a pound or two, a spring scale should provide the same weight as a balance scale (like what you might see in physicians’ offices), which should provide the same result as an electronic scale.
Or consider the statement of an evolutionist who didn’t agree with the radiometric dating (using five different radiometric techniques) of Australia’s “Mungo Man”, thinking it placed humans in Australia too early.
He stated: So here’s another evolutionist who refused to accept the results given from radiometric dating.
The rate of that transformation is constant, and for Carbon it takes about 5,730 years. after the first 1/2 life of 5,730 years, half the Carbon-14 is gone, having been converted to Nitrogen-14.
After the 2nd half life, 11,460 years have elapsed and another 1/2 of what remained is gone leaving 1/4 of the original Carbon-14 and so on.
Consider: In conventional interpretation of K-Ar (Potassium-Argon) age it is common to discard ages which are substantially too high or too low compared with the rest of the group or with other available data such as the geological time scale.
Radioactive decay occurs (usually) at a regular rate, so scientists attempt to use that property as a clock to mark time. The mass is comprised of the protons and Neutrons (electrons are so light they are can typically be ignored.) This means it has 6 protons and 6 neutrons.
