Isochron Discordances In the chapter on isochron discordances, the authors present a large amount of data that date rocks in the range of hundreds of millions of years.The isochron method relies on selecting minerals from different regions of a particular rock formation.
Criteria for selecting reviewers include, whenever possible, those who are in agreement with the biblical viewpoint of the researcher.Funding was provided by the ICR (0,000) and by more than one million dollars of donations.This chapter also provides guidance for carrying out creation science research. In 1997, the Institute of Creation Research (ICR) and the Creation Research Society initiated an eight-year research program to investigate the validity of radioisotope dating of rocks. In the fall of 2005, he became director of the ASA and moved to the North Shore Boston area where he enjoys lobsters, clams, scallops, and other local seafood. in solid-state physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.The first chapter is an introduction and provides an overview of the RATE program.That there is overwhelming evidence for massive radioactive decay in the past is substantiated by an analysis of fission tracks in zircons and by repeated measurements of the usual radioisotopic dating methods.The data presented are not controversial and represent a small fraction of the data available.They acknowledge the unresolved dilemma of extraordinary heat production from such high decay rates with their assertion of a rapid cooling rate to form the granite.What they did not recognize is that the presence of uranium also seems to provide a reasonable explanation for the source of the polonium and polonium halos with normal decay rates and standard ages of granite.
