Radiometric Dating Questions and Answers
What is radiocarbon dating? Is it accurate?
Are there examples of inaccurate results obtained from the potassium/argon dating method (the most cited method)?
How can the radiometric dates of millions and billions of years old be so wrong?
Is there any evidence that radioactive decay rate might not have been constant?
What is the current creationist thinking on radiohalos (formerly called ‘pleochroic halos’)?

“It is an unsolved mystery to evolutionists as to why coal has 14C in
it,23 or wood supposedly many millions of years old still has 14C present,
but it makes perfect sense in a creationist worldview.”
Ha Ha Ha. You above link was written to mislead the ignorant and lazy.
Radioisotope evidence presents significant problems for the young earth position. Baumgardner and the
RATE team are to be commended for tackling the subject, but their intrinsic radiocarbon explanation does
not work. The previously published radiocarbon AMS measurements can generally be explained by
contamination, mostly due to sample chemistry. The RATE coal samples were probably contaminated in
situ. RATEs processed diamond samples were probably contaminated in the sample chemistry. The
unprocessed diamond samples probably reflect instrument background. Coal and diamond samples have
been measured by others down to instrument background levels, giving no evidence for intrinsic

I have no idea. None of the links work!

Hmmm....now I wonder why that is???
