This blog is meant as a resource to answer questions Christians may have (or lack discernment on), but can't get the answers to in Church, and possibly give Biblical viewpoints on the same issues to the unsaved. This is a work in progress, I was too excited not to post it.To me, the most foolish thing someone can do is approach the Bible as merely a human effort, or simply a decent moral code.
Uranium-238 (U238), for example, is an unstable radioactive isotope which decays into Lead-206 (Pb206) naturally over time (it goes through 13 unstable intermediate stages before it finally stabilizes into Pb206).
In this case, U238 is the “parent” and Pb206 is the “daughter.” Scientists begin by measuring how long it takes for a parent isotope to decay into a daughter isotope.
It makes no sense at all if man appeared at the end of billions of years.
We will deal with carbon dating first and then with the other dating methods.
Obviously, this works only for things which were once living.
Question: "How does radiometric dating fit with the view of a young earth?A lot of these questions seem to neglect the fact that God knew the end from the beginning, and the questions also don’t seem to take into account the Ephesians side of things.C) dating usually want to know about the radiometric dating methods that are claimed to give millions and billions of years—carbon dating can only give thousands of years. Maybe Christians can’t answer them all, but God can! First, some of these are questions that the natural man cannot understand. Well, with God’s help, I think I’ve got some decent answers for many…nay ALL of these questions. Before answering these questions, I want to establish a few things.Analyzing it as such, from a finite fallen human perspective will not make sense.
