Thus they probably formed at a depth of 100–200 km.
Geologists believe that the ones we find must have been transported supersonically to the surface, in extremely violent eruptions through volcanic pipes.
Recent research by a team of creation scientists known as the RATE (arth) group has demonstrated the unreliability of radiometric dating techniques.
A fear of God and reverence for His Word is the beginning of wisdom.Starting with the Bible and developing a model for dating events in earth history will lead us to the truth.It is possible to measure the ratio of the different radioactive parent isotopes and their daughter isotopes in a rock, but the ratios are not dates or ages.The dates must be inferred based on assumptions about the ratios.Knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming?
For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water.Despite the fact that there are many scientific problems with radiometric dating, there is a more significant problem.The Bible gives a much different picture and explains that relying on man’s reasoning is foolishness.Most scientists and many Christians believe that the radiometric dating methods prove that the earth is 4.5 billion years old.The textbooks speak of the radiometric dating techniques, and the dates themselves, as factual information.However, there are many methods that can be used to determine the age of the earth or other objects.
