Despite the fact that there are many scientific problems with radiometric dating, there is a more significant problem.The Bible gives a much different picture and explains that relying on man’s reasoning is foolishness.
The textbooks speak of the radiometric dating techniques, and the dates themselves, as factual information.
The reason this age may not be a true age—even though it is commonly called an absolute age—is that it is based on several crucial assumptions.
Most radiometric dating techniques must make three assumptions: The major problem with the first assumption is that there is no way to prove that the decay rate was not different at some point in the past.
Far from being data, these dates are actually interpretations of the data.
As discussed before, the assumptions influence the interpretation of the data.
