I'm sure Isaac Newton took quite a risk publicly disagreeing with radiometric dating.
Oh brother, where art thou ?

Galileo, on the other hand was, however he still maintained his faith and certainly has been vindicated.
A mature Creationist will readily admit the mistakes of a dogmatic church over the centuries. The church of Darwinism by contrast,exercises it’s dogmatism through an entirely different process.
At the end of the day you, if you even bother to do some research, will find the Creationist community of scientists adhering to a standard of scientific rigor that an evolutionist only wished were present.
Here’s the deal.
If it were proven, beyond all doubt, all over the media etc....
That the Earth was no more than..say 10,000 years old.

When did Isaac Newton ever publicly disagree with radiometric dating? Indeed, how could he have done so, since nobody at the time had ever even heard of "radiation?"
It seems to me that, in Newton's time, knowledge of the atom and atomic behavior hadn't advanced all that much beyond the ancient Greek philosopher Democritus of Abdera (ca. 460 370 BC).
