Clocks in Rocks? Radioactive Dating, Part 1

Clocks in Rocks? Radioactive Dating, Part 1

"Unfortunately for the secularist, there are serious problems with the
uniformitarian view as it is applied to radioactive dating. Recent
experimental evidences verify that the decay rates of radioisotopes can
vary significantly from the currently accepted values—by as much as 109 times faster (that’s 1 billion times faster) when exposed to certain environmental factors.9,10,11 It is particularly interesting that the alpha-decay rates of 228Th are increased by as much as 104 (10,000 times) under conditions which give rise to high pressure waves.10
These conditions could have easily existed during the Flood. One cannot
help but wonder what this might say about nuclear decay processes
inside stars or large exoplanets."

Thank you so much for commenting! I love to talk to my readers.

I do ask that there be no anonymous commenters, though. If I am brave enough to put my name on this blog, you should be too:-)

Please keep it civil. Remember we are all human and make mistakes, and that since we can't see each other's faces or hear each other's tone of voice, it is very hard to get the emotion in what we are saying each other. Use lots of emoticons! :-) And show grace and love to each other.
