Radiometric dating measures the decay of radioactive atoms to determine the age of a rock sample.It is founded on unprovable assumptions such as 1) there has been no contamination and 2) the decay rate has remained constant.
However, to read any clock accurately we must know where the clock was set at the beginning.
It’s like making sure that an hourglass clock was set with all the sand in the top bowl at the beginning.
The impact of the radiocarbon dating technique on modern man has made it one of the most significant discoveries of the 20th century.
No other scientific method has managed to revolutionize man’s understanding not only of his present but also of events that already happened thousands of years ago.
So we have absolutely no doubt that the earth is only around six thousand years old.
Contrary to Scripture, many geologists claim that radiometric “clocks” show rocks to be millions of years old.
Plants and animals assimilate carbon 14 from carbon dioxide throughout their lifetimes.
When they die, they stop exchanging carbon with the biosphere and their carbon 14 content then starts to decrease at a rate determined by the law of radioactive decay.

In 1946, Willard Libby proposed an innovative method for dating organic materials by measuring their content of carbon-14, a newly discovered radioactive isotope of carbon.
After all, textbooks, media, and museums glibly present ages of millions of years as fact.
