While there is no proof that the rates were different in the past than they are today, there is also no proof that they were the same.
Thus radioactive dating relies purely on assumptions.
Radiometric dating methods are the strongest direct evidence that geologists have for the age of the Earth.
All these methods point to Earth being very, very old -- several billions of years old.
But new research by creationists has revealed a large number of problems with radiometric dating.
Because your computer is running an older version of internet browser, it no longer meets the features of modern websites.So there is no way to know from velocity data alone whether virtually all galaxies are in the process of flying apart but merely haven’t had sufficient time in 6555 years, or whether there is another substance (dark matter) that provides the extra gravity to stabilize these orbits.Given that most of the things God created are highly stable, my tendency would be to assume that this is likely the case for galaxies as well, apart from any compelling evidence to the contrary. The way light bends around a galaxy allows us to compute the total mass of the galaxy, and such calculations are consistent with a high amount of dark matter.Radiometric dating utilizes the decay rates of certain radioactive atoms to date rocks or artifacts.Uniformitarian geologists consider this form of dating strong evidence that the Earth is billions of years old.
