Wrong Dates, Wrong Assumptions


Part 2



This is Ken Ham, a publisher of the apologetics, award-winning family magazine Answers.


Yesterday we learned that radiometric dating is based on a host of assumptions. And if even one of these assumptions is wrong, radiometric dating can’t be trusted to give vast ages for rocks. And there’s evidence these assumptions are wrong!

You see, rocks at Mount St. Helens were created after a volcanic eruption in the 1980s. But they were dated at over three hundred thousand years old!

And rocks in Hawaii that are only two hundred years old gave a range of six to thirty-nine million years.

We know the ages of these rocks because we watched them form. And yet radiometric dating gives vastly wrong ages. This means those assumptions are wrong!
