Doubts radiometric dating
My last post, on the tectonic origins of the Dead Sea and Jordan Valley, brought me face-to-face once again with one of the most striking pieces of evidence for an ancient earth that I am aware of. This graph shows that the so-called historical sciences and observational sciences that Ken Ham touts can both reach the same conclusions. The data don’t reveal anything that hasn’t been common knowledge among geologists for a long time.
Some will grasp for an escape chute and claim that these data are the result of God’s creating with the appearance of age while others will cast doubts on the data themselves but at the end of the day, both of these claims are without theological or scientific merit.
